Sauntering out of the Ohio Bell Telephone Co. headquarters at lunchtime, a middle-aged man was greeted the other day by a familiar sight: 25 or so chanting demonstrators marching in a circle in front of the building. "This is becoming a Friday ritual," he said, stopping for a while to watch with a friend before moving on. The well-behaved demonstrators, who also have regularly targeted other downtown sites since their protest began June 29, are mostly Cleveland State University students.

For most of America, the war in Iraq officially ended last week with a speech-laden ceremony in Baghdad. But for Karen Mendoza and the other 2,000-plus widows of U.S. military personnel killed in Baghdad, Fallouja, Ramadi and dozens of other cities and towns, the war in Iraq will never truly be over. "Being a widow is a full-time job," said Mendoza, whose husband, Marine Maj. Ray Mendoza, 37, was killed in November 2005 when he stepped on a land mine while leading Marines from Camp Pendleton into combat near the Syrian border.

Ike Pappas, 75, a longtime CBS newsman who reported the shooting death of suspected presidential assassin Lee Harvey Oswald on the radio as the crime was taking place, died Sunday of complications from heart disease in a hospital in Arlington, Va. Pappas was among the reporters at the Dallas police station waiting for Oswald to be moved two days after President Kennedy was assassinated on Nov. 22, 1963. Pappas had just asked him, "You have anything to say in your defense?" when the shot fired by nightclub owner Jack Ruby rang out. Pappas was standing next to Ruby when the gunman opened fire.

When teenager Franklin McCain decided to make a stand against segregation at the F.W. Woolworth's lunch counter in Greensboro, N.C., in 1960, two thoughts weighed on him. "If I were lucky, I would go to jail for a long, long time. If I were not quite so lucky," he recalled to a reporter five decades later, "I would come back to my campus … in a pine box. " The black teenager and the three close friends who joined him that day were not arrested - at least not that time. Nor did white Greensboro react violently to their "sit-in," although threats poured in. But that day - Feb. 1, 1960 - proved crucial.

Every 15 minutes, members of the Alpha Chi Omega sorority threw open the doors of their elegant sorority house to welcome another nervous group of freshmen. The newcomers already had submitted their high school grades in writing to Alpha Chi and 18 other houses; today, they would be rated on looks and personality.

Every so often a story pops up reporting on how city lawmakers intent on clearing up the clutter in their local ordinances vote to repeal a silly law passed long ago. Everyone usually laughs and wonders how that law ever got passed in the first place. Well, looking at some of the laws passed around Orange County in 2000 it's hard not to wonder whether years from now some future generation will be wondering why we were so exercised about some seemingly minor things.

Craig Owens' name is among those in 'The Witness Project.' He was a brilliant art critic--and he was a special friend. I think it was the second time I visited the exhibit "Devil on the Stairs: Looking Back on Art of the Eighties"--which closes Sunday at the Newport Harbor Art Museum--that I felt a surge of pain, a sudden reminder of the death of someone I loved, inappropriately but sincerely, many years ago.
