Saints, Falcons build NFC South rivalry (11/17/02)

Best friends through thick and thin (11/17/02)
Ask a woman who her best friend is, and she'll blurt out a name without even thinking about it. But there's a lot of meaning in that instinct and in those simple spoken syllables. They're born from someone seeing you on your worst day and not caring that you're a foul-mouthed basket case. They're born from years of honesty, even on subjects that would make others think poorly of you. When men leave, best friends really are there through sickness and in health, for richer or poorer...

Holiday shopping tests abilities (11/17/02)
Editor's note: This column originally was published Nov. 14, 1999. Just as I had honed my tactics for gaining attention while shopping in the larger stores, I now find such help and attention almost at arm's length.

Parents tackle the morning rush (11/17/02)
