IT'S BEEN EIGHT YEARS since Gene Hackman last appeared in a movie - 2004's "Welcome to Mooseport. " Since then, except for writing, he's been out of the public eye. But Hackman popped up in the news Wednesday when Santa Fe, N.M., police said the retired actor unretired and acted in self-defense, slapping a homeless man who had become aggressive toward Hackman and his wife. The Hackmans have a home in Santa Fe. The incident occurred Tuesday afternoon in downtown Santa Fe, where there are a lot of homeless people, a lot of jewelry for sale and awesome fajitas.

Drew Lewis, chief executive of Union Pacific Corp., said here yesterday that his transportation company's proposed merger with Santa Fe Pacific Corp. would make more money for shareholders than a competing offer while costing shippers less. "I'm in this because it is the right thing for us to do. I'm going to hang in," Lewis told the Penjerdel Council, a tri-state business and industry group meeting at the Union League. "We'll offer the best service and move product at lower cost," said Lewis, whose company is based in Bethlehem, Pa. Union Pacific offered $3.4 billion to Santa Fe on Oct. 5, compared with Burlington Northern Inc.'s previously announced stock bid, then valued at $2.5 billion.

Early on a chilly morning, my 25-year-old son and I could detect the odor of burning garbage as we walked down a dirt road in a poverty-stricken section of Santa Fe, Argentina, bordered by ditches full of stagnant water. Ahead of us lay a day of construction work with a group of volunteers and local families, most of whom we had met only a few days earlier. We could not have been happier. Such is the experience you can expect on a Habitat for Humanity Global Village trip. I was the team leader for our group of 14 during a week in which we worked hand-in-hand with three "partner" families to repair and expand their homes.
