Grounded, but undiminished

A wonderful, moving portrait of a man who was a hero to me as a 7-year-old in Lane DeGregory's St. Petersburg Times story. Daredevil Evel Knievel comes back to earth:
These days, he says, he doesn't need an adrenaline rush. "The most joy I get now is waking up and wrapping my arms around my wife," he says. "But sometimes she sleeps way over on the other side of the bed and it's hard to get to her. Especially with the dogs between us."
