The family squabble was a typical war of wills. Mark Mulroney, 4 and frustrated, announced that he could not manage to fold his clothes. Mila Mulroney, 30 and wise in the ways of childish trickery, told him to try again. “The next thing I knew, he was on his bed, working on his clothes,” she said last week.

Labour leans toward a Welsh miner’s son

As he walked away unharmed from an expressway crash in which his car was wrecked last month, Neil Kinnock contemplated his safe deliverance. “Somebody up there likes me,” the 41-year-old Welshman remarked. Indeed, his miracle escape seemed to be the final sign that nothing can stop Kinnock in his campaign for the leadership of Britain’s confused and ailing Labour Party.

Fighting flash fires in the sky

Airlines will never eliminate the threat of an aircraft fire in the sky. But current research indicates that a blaze aboard a plane in flight could often be controlled long enough to give passengers a good chance of escaping once the aircraft has made its way back to ground.

A spy agency faces its critics
