Kids are going to change our world for the better. We can count on it. As per my last column (“Next generations resetting our world,” Tribune, Sept. 15), I reported on the idea that as certain society systems collapse, the next generations will step forward and “reset” our trajectory. (See The Fourth Turning by historians William Strauss and Neil Howe.)

If you’re a couple of decades old you might remember the Pulliam Family, longtime owners of Arizona’s 123-year-old newspaper. When the family sold the Arizona Republic to Gannett in 2000, there was talk then of the possible loss of loyalty towards readers. “Would a corporation put community service before profits?” Lifelong readers, like myself, have watched with sinking hearts.
Climate change, and the consistently hotter and drier weather that comes with it, is largely the cause of the recent “sharp increase” in the number and intensity of wildfires, NASA officials said Friday.
More than 3,000 Chandler High School students shed the doldrums of a short summer and woke up for their first day of school on July 22.

NEW YORK — There's extensive evidence that pigs are as smart and sociable as dogs. Yet one species is afforded affection and respect; the other faces mass slaughter en route to becoming bacon, ham and pork chops.
A recent General Mills Cheerios commercial has reminded us Americans (and those in other parts of the world) that race still causes severe social and political upset in 2013.

SAN FRANCISCO — An Asiana Airlines flight packed with more than 300 people slammed onto the runway while landing at San Francisco airport Saturday and caught fire, forcing many to escape by sliding down the emergency inflatable slides and into a trail of metal debris as flames tore through the plane.
When Osama bin Laden was assassinated, it felt like the War on Terror’s big climax. The enemy was defeated, America rejoiced, and a bright new day was born.

That’s one of the many sad truths explored in “Dirty Wars,” a documentary that’s significant, admirable, and occasionally shocking, although never really profound.
