Off and on since 1983, I've covered the continuing tragedy of a disease called AIDS. Actually, when I first began writing about it, most of the public--including my editors and me--didn't know what it was. So we used to spell out the name with capital letters--Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome--describing it then as a disease that suppressed the immune system, killing its victims within a year.

Virtually by accident, Britain's Conservative Party chose its first woman leader 10 years ago this month. It seemed a high-risk gamble, yet Margaret Thatcher has forcibly stamped her distinctive style and right-wing views on her party and nation. Many thought the grocer's daughter would never survive, that she would be just an interim leader until the defeated party rallied behind a more traditional Tory figure.

Bill Gates retired Friday from full-time work at Microsoft Corp. after more than 30 years, closing the books on one of the most extraordinary careers in the annals of business.

Bill Walsh, coach of three Super Bowl champions with the San Francisco 49ers, said Thursday he was "appalled" that parents of high school football players were pushing their sons to be 300-pounders. At a day-long hearing of the Senate Select Committee on Government Oversight, he was voicing his outrage at the pressures that force teenagers to turn to anabolic steroids and dietary supplements. "It's just wild," he said of the unregulated supplements available to teenagers and adults.
