CLIMBING LESSONS FROM THE SCHOOL OF TOMAZ HUMAR
He's summited 26,504-foot Annapurna I, alone, in a whiteout. He's survived a night on the west face of 25,770-foot Nuptse, alone, after his climbing partner was blown off the mountain and his tent burned down. And he has scaled the south face of 26,810-foot Dhaulagiri, alone, living through avalanches and self-administered dental surgery. Is Tomaz Humar the best alpinist in the world, or just the luckiest?
By Peter Maass

WHAT'S GALE NORTON TRYING TO HIDE?
Greens call her James Watt in a skirt, but flattery is getting them nowhere. With the country distracted by events overseas, George W. Bush's quiet but aggressive Interior Secretary has craftily bypassed Congress, rolled back enviro regulations, and ushered in a huge new push for oil, natural gas, and mine development on public lands. Next up: ANWR. Welcome to Beltway hardball, Norton-style.

LIVING IN DOG YEARS
Let us now praise Radish, who saw the world as a heaping banquet table, ate his way from end to end, romped and farted with gusto, and then one day said, "I'm full."
By Bill Vaughn

ONE HUNDRED YEARS OF ALTITUDE
Rick Young thinks he alone knows the secret to Orville and Wilbur Wright's first motorized flight in 1903. Now, if he can only fly his replica without getting killed.
By Carl Hoffman
