U.S., South Korea again call off military exercise

SINGAPORE (AP) — The United States and South Korea are scrapping another major military exercise this year, a Pentagon official said today, citing a push for diplomatic progress with North Korea.
The top Pentagon spokeswoman, Dana W. White, said Washington and Seoul are suspending an air exercise known as Vigilant Ace “to give the diplomatic process every opportunity to continue.”

Migrants defy threats, prepare to cross into Mexico

Before dawn Friday, the migrants decided to wait a few more hours for stragglers to arrive before heading to the border crossing.

DEAR ABBY

Child meets ex-step father

DEAR ABBY: When I was in my first year of college, my mother divorced my stepdad. “Charlie” was part of my life for 12 years, but since their divorce, she insists I have no contact with him. Charlie visits the state where I now live several times a year to see a friend and invites me to have dinner with him. I do, but because of Mom’s demand, I ask him to keep our time together a secret. If she knew we were in contact, I think she would cut me out of her life.

When a New York newspaper mistakenly reported in 1897 the death of Sam Clemens, or Mark Twain if you prefer, Twain responded with a note that, among other things, observed: “reports of my death were exaggerated.”

I love stories, and I always have. My nose has been buried in a book since I was about 5 years old, and since then, finding me without a good read has been a rarity. Almost nothing makes me happier than spending hours with a book in one hand and a cup of tea in the other.
