The Cleveland Cavaliers are getting a new practice facility, which will feature not only two full-length courts, but a sauna, a kitchen with a walk-in freezer, and a car wash. Regardless, Cavalier owner Dan Gilbert maintained that he was not spoiling his millionaire players. "They will not be getting manicures and haircuts," he explained. Trivia time: The Arizona Diamondbacks' Luis Gonzalez needs one double to become the 21st major league player with at least 300 home runs and 500 doubles.

When the Appalachian Trail was completed in 1937, its creators never envisioned that anyone would ever have the audacity, desire or toughness to hike all 2,100 miles at one time. The trail was intended for day outings or maybe a weeklong trip. It was inconceivable that anyone--even the most enthusiastic hiker--would want to spend that much time in the woods. And, for a long time, trail organizers were right.

Once I wrote a first-hand account of Arctic Eskimos, their hunting rituals and the killing of a whale. An earnest reader responded immediately with a letter expressing the intent to kill me. "This is more warning than the whale got," the writer said. Almost all my experiences with hunters and anti-hunters have been along this line. Even thoughtful people tend to arrive at their ideas about hunting viscerally.

The bear--a large grizzly--was on the other side of a two-lane road in the Canadian Rockies north of Banff. Stupidly, I had left the group I was camping with to take an early morning walk. I didn't even have my bear bells, the jinglers that one attaches to a stick in hopes the noise will announce one's presence. The bear and I were headed in the same direction, the animal with the confidence of a wilderness native, I with an interloper's temerity that quickly turned to fear.
