LONDON - Mitt and Ann Romney arrived in London showing their U.S.A. colors as they prepared to attend the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games, but given the tight security encircling them, it seemed unlikely they would be spotted by many expatriate or English fans outside of their public events. The hotel where the Romneys are staying, which overlooks Hyde Park and is hosting many top Olympics officials, was a virtual fortress of security Wednesday afternoon, shortly after the Romneys arrived.

Some investments listed in Mitt and Ann Romney's 2010 tax returns — including a now-closed Swiss bank account and other funds located overseas — were not explicitly disclosed in the personal financial statement the Republican presidential hopeful filed in August as part of his White House bid. The Romney campaign described the discrepancies as "trivial" but acknowledged Thursday that it was reviewing how the investments were reported and would...

ISTANBUL, Turkey - Inside the Cagaloglu Hamami, my masseuse, a short, paunchy woman of about 50, sings as she exfoliates me from head to toe with a rough mitt. The sweet melody contrasts with the gruff scrub job. Every few minutes, she douses me with a pail of warm water and off goes another layer of skin and, increasingly, my cares. At one point, she shows me the mitt as if for emphasis. I make a mental note to tip more. A slap on the leg signals me to turn over. I manage to flop onto my stomach, and she begins lathering me all over with soap - first hoisting one arm, then another.

Everyone else seems to have calmed down. But I'm still shaking my head at the mom Olympics that competed with the real ones this political season. First, former State Department official Ann-Marie Slaughter in the Atlantic magazine told us we can't have it all. Then Marissa Mayer, the new head of Yahoo, declared she'd work through her brief maternity leave. The usual chorus of voices rose to defend or attack each woman. The mommy wars, yawn. I just can't get worked up over them anymore.

In June, leaders of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints made a fateful decision. They called on California Mormons to donate their time and money to the campaign for Proposition 8, which would overturn a state Supreme Court ruling that permitted gay marriage. That push helped the initiative win narrow passage on election day. And it has made the Mormon Church, which for years has striven to be seen as part of the American mainstream, a political target.

Cleanup and confession were the dominant Olympic themes emanating from here Thursday as the Salt Lake Organizing Committee named a new president and an American member of the International Olympic Committee admitted giving a job to the son of an IOC member who resigned last month because of the bribery scandal.

Re "Romney assails Obama foreign policy," Oct. 9 It is absurd for Mitt Romney to criticize anyone in the area of foreign policy. Romney has called Russia our "No. 1 geopolitical foe" (as though the Cold War continues). He promised to brand China a currency manipulator and impose tariffs on Chinese goods on Day 1 of his administration (without mentioning Day 2, when China may well stop purchasing U.S. Treasury notes, thus sending interest rates soaring and our economic stability into tatters)

Re "Working to break his own storybook spell," Nov. 24 Mitt Romney is not working to break the positive patterns he has established in his life, nor is he apologizing for the stability of his life. Would it be so bad to have a president who was as disciplined in his personal affairs as we would like our government to be in our national affairs? The implication of the article is that the voters should view Romney's lack of problems as a problem.

Greg Maddux pitched well and provided veteran leadership in his first month with the Dodgers. But his job description will be expanded Tuesday when he helps out Derek Lowe during a bullpen session. Picture an NFL quarterback warming up on the sideline with a courteous teammate standing alongside him, catching the return throws and flipping the ball to the quarterback. Lowe would be the quarterback, Maddux the courteous teammate.
