Highest, Tallest, Fastest, etc.

We like keeping scores---the highest batting average in baseball, the tallest building in the world, the fastest jet speed to make it into the book of Guinness World Records. The record keepers will now need a new category of Hottest Summer ever recorded in US history. This dubious honor has been awarded to the State of Oklahoma for the Summer of 2011.

The State of Happiness

Happiness is more than a state of mind. Happiness is a state. Also: a city. A county. A metropolitan area. Specifically, according to Dan Buettner of National Geographic: The state of Nuevo Leon, Mexico. The city of Singapore. The metropolitan area around Aarhus, Denmark. He wanted an answer to the question: "Where do the happiest people in the world live?

Learning by Pads

Years ago I was visiting a friend, a senior writer at the local newspaper. Over a nice bottle of wine we were catching up on various news events. Soon, sounds from an adjacent room interrupted our conversation. In a high, squeaky giggle the sound of “hee, hee, hee, hee” could be heard.

The kid, paying ...

The State is now experiencing the largest wildfire in its recorded history and the fire is expanding. The Whitewater-Baldy blaze in the Gila National Forest has burned nearly 300 square miles is the largest wildfire currently raging in the country.
