Every time Ellen and Dave McClintock nestle a handmade treasure into tissue paper and tuck it into a box for a customer at Crossroads Crafts Inc. in Doylestown, they are performing an act of charity. They also are fulfilling one of Dave McClintock's dreams. It is a dream he has harbored since 1980 when he spent nearly three months as a volunteer teaching English in a Laotian refugee camp in Thailand. At the refugee camp, and also during his travels to Liberia and South Africa, McClintock was impressed by the beautiful handicrafts made in the villages.

David Woods is a Philadelphia writer When the body of Shakespeare's Julius Caesar is brought before the Romans, does the bard have them say, "Who dunnit?" No, he has Mark Antony deliver the eloquent "Friends, Romans, Countrymen" speech. And the Roman poet Horace showed his lyrical skill with: "Pick today's fruits, not relying on the future in the slightest. " Carpe Diem . He did not, you will note, say, "Have a nice day. " In both cases, the writers knew a simple truth: that language matters.

WASHINGTON - The U.S. trade deficit surged in January to the widest imbalance in more than three years after imports grew faster than exports. Rising oil prices helped drive imports to a record high, as did stronger demand for foreign-made cars, computers, and foods. And exports to Europe fell, a sign that the region's debt crisis could temporarily weaken U.S. growth just as the job market is strengthening. The January trade deficit widened to $52.6 billion, the Commerce Department reported Friday.

STEVENSVILLE, Md. - It is deepest October on Chesapeake Bay, peak crab-picking season, the blue crabs coming in thick and fast and, blessedly, fat after an erratic summer and drought that sent them skittering up-bay, away from encroaching salt water to refuges in the Sassafras River, and the Elk. But the hubbub in the handful of crab houses that are left on the Eastern Shore - the Mexican pickers picking jumbo lump, the machines shaking out the flaked...

Tuesday is the 11th anniversary of 9/11. And three months later, we will mark the 71st anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. The two worst attacks on American soil each resulted in nearly 3,000 deaths and led the nation to war. Still, given the passage of time, Dec. 7 will be noted with minimal, if any, reverence by most Americans, and, despite little more than a decade having lapsed since 9/11, already some memories are fading too fast....

NOW THAT the Michael Vick controversy has died down, I want to know where in our Constitution or Bill of Rights it says that dogs are included. I don't think the Founding Fathers were thinking about Lassie in the big scheme of things. How is it possible that someone can serve more time in prison for abusing a poop machine than for murdering a fellow human being? Do you know who put dogs above human beings? The world's favorite whipping boy, Adolf Hitler. What about the rat or the shark?
