Wagging the Dog

A few months ago, I was talking with a mother of a private school student, and I asked her if she minded telling me why she chose a private school for her child.

Ariail for Dec. 16, 2013

December 16, 2013 | | Ariail

Camden Mayor Tony Scully called it a "transformational vision, showing us what's possible." We agree, hoping not only that other property owners will upgrade their buildings, but that Kimbrell's lead will entice new businesses and developers to invest in Camden as well.

What was the question?

Verbal communication can be very surprising. Sometimes it can be annoying. It can also be so amazing that the listener hardly has a reply except a gasp.
