"I never could have gotten in there today," he told me. After a moment he slapped me on the back and walked away.

Top of the news: BP hits pause on drilling that relief well; Alzheimer's diagnosis might expand; Gulf spill " altering food web"; the White House says the stimulus saved 3 million jobs.
