As you are reading this column today, there is an excellent chance
that I am in the hospital assisting my wife in the birth of our
daughter, Grace Farah. (Not sure about the middle name yet.)

For obvious reasons, you should not expect another column from me for
a few days. The world will have to wait.

Grace will be my fifth daughter. That’s right — fifth, with no boys.
What a wonderful Father’s Day this will be two weeks from now with a
baby in the house!

I do want to take this opportunity to thank my wife and God for this
imminent gift.

Thank you, also, my dear readers, for all your kind wishes and
thoughtful prayers.
