Tim Myers: If I get old and grumpy, take me to the Soylent Green factory

In August I will turn 50. When I graduated from Davis County High School in 1978, I could barely imagine myself at 40 in the millennial year of 2000, let alone how ancient and decrepit I might find myself at age 50 in the unforeseeable year 2010. Yet here I stand at that milestone.

Gulf oil spill's threat to wildlife turns real

ON BARATARIA BAY, La. (AP) -- The wildlife apocalypse along the Gulf Coast that everyone has feared for weeks is fast becoming a terrible reality.
