Bob Burton, the nation's premier bounty hunter, has been punched, shot and had his head bashed. He describes his sometimes-lucrative job as "97% boredom and 3% terror." Burton travels nationwide in search of people who got bondsmen to post their bail and then skipped out on court appearances. "You're sitting in the car in a bad section of town, drinking cold coffee, talking to stupid people, and there's not much romance," Burton said. "But," he added, "there is adrenaline."

Bob Burton and the Sacramento television station where he worked were seeking a way to humanize the news, and thus the "Waiting Child" feature was born. Fifteen years and 800 adoptions later, the segments go on, now produced by a Santa Barbara television station. The most recent spots featuring Orange County children will be shown through mid-June.

For about a year now I have been shipping clothes to my destination by FedEx. I will ship a suit, sports jacket, shirts and other items, including my toiletries. They have been delayed only once. The host hotels hold the package for me, and I spend zero time in airport security. The cost of delivery can be as little as $25, depending on weight and destination; you can save money by requesting two-day delivery. You might also consider UPS or the Postal Service.
