Moran's memo: Defeating Alzheimer's Disease

Every 68 seconds someone in America develops Alzheimer's disease – a devastating and irreversible brain disease that slowly destroys an individual's cognitive functioning, including memory and thought.

Slipping into a new habit this year

I began my year of walking more right after Thanksgiving. I live in a very walkable neighborhood in Great Bend. My house is just blocks from most of the things I need, as well as my job. There are restaurants, coffee shops, entertainment of all sorts, clothing stores, gift stores, grocery stores, banks, doctors and dentists offices, schools, convenience stores--you name it, it's probably within walking distance of where I live. And for me, walking distance is about a half-mile. That's six blocks, for simplicity's sake. Not even enough to work up a sweat.
