Even rough patches have led me somewhere I needed to go

Main Street driving challenge can help fill thin sports pages

There’s always a price to pay for not backing up a computer

I’m either too trusting or just plain naive. Naive, that’s a polite way of saying stupid. I haven’t checked, but I think it’s politically correct to use “stupid” when referring to one’s self. You techno-geeks have probably...
