The Great Outdoors. The New York Times has introduced a new column dedicated to emphasizing the natural world over technical skills. James Gorman, former story
editor for the New York Times Magazine and editor of the Times' "Circuit" section, will opine about activities like kayaking, hiking and birding. We hope he also does a few
postmortems on whatever vermin the folks on "Survivor II" happen to be eating. The column, which will run on alternate Fridays, first appeared Feb. 16. (Diane McNulty,
