It came to an end officially on Jan. 21, 1993.

It has been scarcely more than 80 years since European explorers first reached the South Pole, only 35 years since scientists in significant numbers established bases on a barren continent where the only permanent inland life consists of a few plants and invertebrates.

Not content with graciously bowing out, he told a national television audience that, in fact, he and his wife had planned to leave in 1990 but that grievous responsibilities— Meech Lake, the Gulf War, Oka, etc.—had forced him to remain at the wheel.

I shed a lot of tears today. They stain the pages of your cover story, “The greatest fear” (March 1). I cried for all those innocent children who faced the devil incarnate and died. There is no greater fear for a parent than that only imaginable by the likes of the abominations convicted of the greatest crime against humanity; the suffering of our little ones.
