By Llewellyn King Here are 20 vital questions for New Year 2013. In every case, the answer is "probably not. " 1. Will the telephone companies, the credit-card issuers, and every other organization stop torturing their customers with automated phone systems that deny the right to speak to a human being? 2. Will President Obama tell us where he thinks the nation is going, and what it will look like in four years? 3.

Question: I'm getting a dose of reality. I'm divorcing my husband (of 23 years) seven years after the affair and sitting unhappily on the fence.

He could feel it coming, that familiar rolling thunder of the kettle drums in his chest, his windpipe constricting even as he tried frantically to suck in oxygen, his arms going numb like a wet finger in a light socket, his legs turning to jelly - and slowly he gave in to gravity and began to sink to his knees, and on the way down he thought: "So this is what it is like to die. " But not then. Not now. Not yet. No, golfer Charlie Beljan's time here had not expired.

YOU COULD SAY Andrew Guckin has come out of nowhere to emerge as the top rusher for Archbishop Wood High's ever-impressive football team. You could also say he jumped up from a hospital bed and, well, that wouldn't be the worst-ever example of truth-stretching. The 5-11, 200-pound Guckin, a senior halfback, last Friday night sliced and diced the Vikings' school record for one-game rushing yards by churning for 345 in a 56-35, looked-like-a-track-meet victory over host Bonner-Prendergast.

Medicare Part D - prescription drug coverage - is a crucial and complex part of an often confusing process for many Medicare-eligible seniors.
