And every offspring--from Jack Doscher, a pitcher with the Cubs in 1903 who was the first son of a former player to reach the majors, to Ken Griffey Jr.--has to face the inevitable question: How do you measure up to your dad's career? Tim DeCinces probably won't have to worry about that for another couple of years.

Forget roses. Forget soil pH levels. Marcus Rosner is here to talk lettuce. Planting it. Tending it. Eating it. But not just any lettuce. In Rosner's Rustic Canyon garden, the greens are pedigreed. He plants French varieties called Brun d'Hiver and Rouge d'Hiver and English Winter Marvel to harvest in winter. By spring, he's tasting sweet Red Grenoble and Brunia from France and Red Riding Hood from Switzerland.

Editor's note The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are regular concerns of The Times' editorial pages, and undoubtedly will be much debated in the coming presidential campaign. Today, however, is not for politics or policy, but rather for honor. And thus we pay our respects to the women and men of our armed forces who have given their lives in defense of this country and its freedoms. Below, those who made that sacrifice from Jan. 1, 2008, through midnight Saturday. Jim Newton, Editor of the Editorial Pages -- [ IRAQ ]
