    A few years ago, a friend who had moved into a comeback neighborhood in downtown Winston-Salem talked about the plusses and minuses of urban living. The plusses clearly prevailed for him but, as he put it, "if you need to buy a hammer, you still need to drive out to Sears."

    The National Weather Service, whose technology for predicting our weather has grown to say the least greatly more sophisticated since the middle of the 19th century, is about to abandon a communication tic that dates that far back.

    Nov 12, 2015 | HeraldSun.com

    The letter, or one like it, arrives every year - one of a seemingly endless stream of pleas for support for worthy causes. But this annual solicitation has long struck me as just a bit problematic, and this year struck me even more so, perhaps because of a recent decision in a nearby county.
