Because almost 50% of marriages in the US end in divorce, there is a good likelihood that the people reading these words have been affected by divorce, in some way.  The stats break down this way: 41% of first marriages end in divorce, 60% of second marriages end in divorce and 73% of third marriages end in divorce.  You are more likely to stay married if  you graduated from college, waited until you were at least 26 years old to marry and if you don’t smoke cigarettes.

ARCHIVES—Articles of note you should have read but missed the first time around. Reposted as a public service.

Steven Jonas, MD, MPH   

As is my wont, on these pages and others, over the years I have visited and revisited various aspects of the subject of 9/11 (1 – 4).  At this time, the subject appears to be worth yet another visit.  We have had two very important articles published on what the Cheney/Bush Administration was told about the al Qaeda threat and what they chose to pay attention to (nothing).  One has received a great deal of worthwhile attention (5), the other not so much (6).
