Mike Powell’s long jump record endures 30 years later

TOKYO — Winds racing ahead of an approaching typhoon swirled through Olympic Stadium as if delivering an ominous advance warning on an eerie and humid night already thick with an electric tension. At the top of the long jump runway at the World Championships, Mike Powell stood at the center of another storm, one that had been building and then ebbing and finally regaining momentum over nearly a quarter-century; a tempest fueled on this night, August 30, 1991, by the prospect of the once unthinka...

When Stepping Aside Makes Room for Others to Flourish

I heard my husband stirring. He’s an early riser so I wasn’t completely surprised, but it seemed awfully dark. I squinted at him and mumbled, “What time is it?” “It’s 2:30,” he said. “I’m getting up to ride my bike trainer and watch the Olympics.” “You’re crazy,” I chided him, then rolled over, and went back to sleep. Maybe you weren’t as committed as my husband to get up in the middle of the night to watch your favorite Olympic events live, but I’m guessing you watched some of the Tokyo Olympic...

Biden is betting Americans don't care about Afghanistan and we'll blind ourselves to the ongoing catastrophe.

Looking at the "Most Read" list at The Washington Post this morning, I think he might win that bet:  How many Maryland workers does it take to screw in a lightbulb? Grandma wants a hug. Covid's still percolating in the dumbosphere, and a lady lost a footrace. America curls up and gets cozy. That virus going after Republicans who sorta deserve it. The birdies didn't deserve the murderous workers. Are we getting our snuggie-wuggles from the kiddies? Feeling better to know that the runner who did...
