  • There's a new biography of P.T. Barnum, and as I read a review of the book it brought to mind an unforgettable memory from my early childhood. When I was about five years old, I was taken to the Barnum and Bailey three-ring circus in Waco, and it certainly seemed to me to live up to its billing as "The Greatest Show on Earth." My mother saved some of the promotional literature that identified the origin of the circus with P. T. Barnum. Some years later, after we had acquired a set of encyclopedias, I looked up the entry for Barnum and read about his fabulous career back in the 19th century. Undoubtedly his greatest hit was General Tom Thumb.

  • 2018 death of John McCain, American politician and military officer. John Sidney McCain III (August 29, 1936 August 25, 2018) was an American politician and military officer, who served as a United States senator from Arizona from January 1987 until his death. He previously served two terms in the United States House of Representatives and was the Republican nominee for president of the United States in the 2008 election, which he lost to Barack Obama. McCain graduated from the United States Naval Academy in 1958 and received a commission in the United States Navy. He became a naval aviator and flew ground-attack aircraft from aircraft carriers. During the Vietnam War, he almost died in the 1967 USS Forrestal fire. While on a bombing mission during Operation Rolling Thunder over Hanoi in October 1967, he was shot down, seriously injured, and captured by the North Vietnamese. He was a prisoner of war until 1973. He experienced episodes of torture and refused an out-of-sequence early release. During the war, he sustained wounds that left him with lifelong physical disabilities.
