There's an unwritten policy in Hollywood against aging. But if one has to age, one should do so gracefully and never look one's true age. Harrison Ford, 65, has done just that with "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.' A few more wrinkles and gray stubble look good on the adventuring archaeologist's unshaven face. Judging from the way Jones puts on his classic fedora after it comes off early in the film, he means business.

It's a shame what has become of America's once great airline industry. This is all I could think about as I stood in a slow-moving line about a mile long to get through security at Cleveland Hopkins Airport on a recent Monday morning.

Dear Members of the Class of 2008, This is a time like no other in you life! A four-month period framed by recognition programs, commencement exercises, and graduation parties, and punctuated with celebratory hugs, photographs with friends and pledged promises of "I will always remember you!' It is a time that marks the end of childhood and the beginning of adulthood. It is a time that leads you to reminisce about the past, but encourages you to look forward to the future. It is a time that fills you with a sense of accomplishment and energizes you with a feeling that anything is possible. It is a time that you have dreamed about for years, and now, it is here.

Summer is almost here and that means a lot of people will be swimming, mostly children. I would like to take a minute to remind you of several rules for swimming. For small children, never leave them unattended no matter how shallow the water is. Try to stay at arm's length at all times. Don't trust the blow-up-floaties that go on their arms or around their waist. The floaties can lose air and it only takes a second for a child to twist around and end up face down in the water. If your little ones are going to be around water then you need to teach them how to swim as soon as possible. Valley Beach Park and the Norwalk Park and Rec. Center offer swimming lessons to the young and old. The Rec. Center has classes for children as young as six months old!

Being the third child in the family isn't easy. At least that's what I'm told. I, personally, was a first child. My brother and sister had to follow in my footsteps. I imagine that being the third child is tough. By then, the novelty has worn off. You're not the first one, with eager parents consulting child development books and snapping photos to document every milestone. You're not even the second child, with parents still a little bit in awe of the process. And, in a family of four like ours, the third one is not yet the "baby,' who gets special attention because he is the last.
