Silence in the garden

On Jan. 29, 2012, James R. Cothran, of Atlanta, died after a short illness. For many people, the garden is the perfection of man's beauty on earth. Nowhere is this more evident than in the South, where creating beautiful spaces is a time-honored tradition. James "Jim" Robert Cothran shared and exemplified this passion. This renowned landscape architect, horticulturalist, urban planner, garden historian, historic preservationist, author, educator, civic leader, businessman and mentor contributed significantly to preserving the beauty of the Southern landscape.

Oversigning

We confess to be followers of big-time college athletics, but we acknowledge that it's out of hand in many ways.

In too many cases, schools over-offer grants-in-aid, which leaves them in the position of having to get rid of some players who have already been there for a year or two or three. Coaches are always able to rationalize this -- "bad attitude" is one reason they give -- but it's not an ...

Man vs. reality TV

I gave up television several years ago when I bid farewell to Jack Bauer and the final season of "24." Not sure why I was drawn to the series about a fictional counter terrorist unit and its main protagonist, Jack Bauer; perhaps it was the excitement of watching the unit diffuse major terrorist attacks in merely one hour of real time in one very bad day. Other than sports, worthwhile news and the occasional "Office" episode, I've chosen to put the box on the back burner.
