Jo Becker is an investigative reporter with The New York Times. When she was at The Washington Post, she shared a Pulitzer Prize with Barton Gellman for their reporting on then-Vice President Dick Cheney.

An Easy Way to Enrich Your Life is to Try New Things

Try New ThingsA recent article in USA Today written by Nanci Hellmich discussed ways that people could enrich their lives during their retirement years. She said the key is to: "...get out and try new things." I think she's right on the money, but we don't have to wait until we retire to take advantage of this idea. Trying new things adds spice to life no matter what our age is. For example, during the last year, I started preparing and eating more vegetarian dishes. Because of this, I've tasted many new flavors that I didn't even know existed. This experience has been a wonderful, exciting and fun adventure and there are still many flavors I haven't tasted. The article pointed out how many pre-retirees feared being bored when they retired. My response to this is how can you be bored when there are so many new things to try? I'm not just talking about new foods, but new restaurants, new books, new activities, new stores, new friends and so forth. So follow Ms. Hellmich's advice and get out there and try some new things. If you don't want to do it alone, do it with a friend or a group of friends. You've got everything to gain and absolutely nothing to lose.

Motion for Summary Judgment Filed on April 21, 2014

Shawn AikenGay and lesbian couples challenging Arizona's ban on same-sex marriage are asking a federal court for a pretrial ruling in their favor.  The motion asked for summary judgment declaring that the ban violates constitutional protections for due process of law and equal protection under the law.  The lawsuit was filed in Phoenix in March on behalf of seven couples.  The case is one of two Arizona same-sex marriage ban challenges filed this year and pending in federal court in Phoenix.  Lawyers for the state denied that Arizona's ban violates constitutional rights.  Arizona lawmakers approved a state law barring same-sex marriages in 1996, and voters in 2008 amended the Arizona Constitution to include a ban.
