I recently read your column advising "tough love" for grandparents
to give misbehaving grandchildren, whose own parents let them run wild.
I have followed your advice, and enclose a picture demonstrating my technique
when my grandson just won't behave while I'm babysitting for his parents.
They have told me not to spank him, so I just take him for a ride, and
he usually calms down afterward.

up to Iraq war deceptions
Americans believed the White House so much that 57 percent of Americans

terrorism that began after Sept. 11 were the "same war."

says Huxley's "Brave New World" could cause teen sexual arousal
Julie Wilde and other parents want Aldous Huxley's "Brave
New World" and Robert Heinlein's "Stranger in a Strange Land"
taken out of classrooms. "This is pornographic literature and we
do not feel it has a place in any school funded by taxpayer dollars,"
says the Texas mom. The books, she says, may lead to "inappropriate
