  • Carnett: A pure voice stolen by Parkinson's

    My heart goes out to one of my all-time favorite singers, Linda Ronstadt. I'm a bigger fan of hers today than ever. A superstar pop artist of the 1970s, her smash hits include "You're No Good" and "When Will I Be Loved." She later segued into such...

    It's A Gray Area: Missing Devon

  • Commentary: Running against the clock, in more ways than one

    There it is. Chapter 5 of Owen Barder's "Running for Fitness" describes age-related declines in muscle mass, lung elasticity and stride length and a loss of 9% to 10% aerobic capacity per decade. All this points to slowing down as we age. So when I...
