Four times a day, when 13-year-old Mikey Albano injects himself with insulin from Canada to control his diabetes, his only concern is aiming the syringe. Mikey -- the son of this city's mayor -- knows that some people question whether the medication that comes by mail to his home in a refrigerated package might be outdated or otherwise unsafe. Mikey also has heard critics suggest his father is endangering his life to save a few pennies. "That is just wrong," the eighth-grader says.

Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (D-Mass.) is being a homer for the Bay State.

But not to Kennedy: "I know the answer -- it's undoubtedly Springfield, MA!"

My daughter won't be college-bound for another dozen years or so, but when she's ready I'll be delighted if she chooses Mt. Holyoke. Backdrop for the college's idyllic setting is Mt.
