To look at him, one would never guess that Jason has an eating problem. At 21, he's a sturdy man with a well-developed body and a California tan. Yet nine months ago, Jason (not his real name) weighed 130 pounds. A year ago, he weighed 112. That's not bad if you're just over 5 feet tall. But Jason is 6-feet even.

Just four months into marriage, my husband and I were having trouble connecting. Like, actually connecting. The Internet in South Africa was terrible. "I can hear you. Can you hear me?" I shouted from my end, the common room of a Cape Town hostel. Each time I managed to pull up Skype on my laptop, the screen froze and my husband's voice squealed through the speakers like a tipsy robot. "Hello - ?" I could see his brown eyes searching the webcam. Lemon-yellow sunlight streamed through the windows of our Palm Springs condo.

We are sitting in the park, the very private park of Michael and Pat DeAngelo in the Tustin Hills, and the video camera of "The Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous" is rolling. Bruce Nelson, real estate agent to the rich and famous, is sitting on a bench with his back to the 36,000-square-foot DeAngelo manse. There's a slight breeze, just enough to make the palm fronds shimmer a little, and Bruce is talking about the difference between a major and a minor estate.

When Sean "Stanley" Leary's friends heard he'd gone missing in Utah's Zion National Park, they drove hundreds of miles to help. Leary was well-known in the tight-knit world of mountain adventurers. At Yosemite National Park, he was an old hand, with more than 50 ascents of El Capitan under his belt - including a record-setting 2 1/2-hour scramble up a 2,900-foot wall that demands several days from seasoned climbers. He explored new routes up peaks in the Arctic and in Antarctica and was an ardent BASE jumper - an adventure enthusiast who leaps off mountains and other high places.

Kelly Jackson decided to keep it a secret. Rather than spoil the surprise, he would let his mother, who lives in Kansas City, see the Coke commercial herself. "So she called," Jackson said, "and she asked me, 'Were you on television?' and I was like, 'Well, yeah, I was.' And she said, 'Were you drinking a Coke?' And I said, 'Yeah, I was.' And she was just so happy."

Mitchell can't stop washing his hands. Philip has trouble keeping his clothes on--even in cold weather. And Luke goes everywhere with a pair of men's bikini underpants around his neck. Bizarre behavior? Maybe by adult standards, but not for little kids. For 4-year-old Philip, 2-year-old Luke and 3-year-old Mitchell, it's just a part of growing up. Parents may be worried when children's habits mimic frightening adult disorders, but the experts say: Relax.

As Bill Singer pulls a lever on the transformer box at UC Irvine, he illuminates both the baseball field and his own role as a citizen. Once known as the Singer Throwing Machine, a 20-game winner with both the Dodgers and Angels, Singer is an anomaly in an era when pampered players have developed a reputation for taking their money and never being heard from again.
