    After an overnight flight to meet my father at his latest military assignment,
    my mother wearily arrived at Ramstein Air Base in Germany with my eight
    siblings and me -- all under age 11. Collecting our many suitcases, the ten of
    us entered the cramped customs area. A young customs official watched our
    entourage in disbelief, ''Ma'am,'' he said, ''do all these children and this
    luggage belong to you?''
    ''Yes, sir,'' my mother said with a sigh, ''they're all mine.''
    The customs agent began his interrogation: ''Ma'am, do you have any weapons,
    contraband or illegal drugs in your possession?''
    ''Sir,'' she calmly answered, ''if I'd had any of those items, I would have
    used them by now.''
