Why do people run? Why would anyone want to leave the geniality of a warm bed on a cold morning to spend 30 minutes of breathless agony? Why would someone choose to end a harried day at work with a pointless endeavor like running? They just do. And they do for reasons unbeknownst to many, explicable to others. Delivered to those who sprint, jog, dart, or dash are amazing enhancements sending them out the door three, five, even seven days a week, some asserting never to stray from one sole run.

Noted and passed -- Nov. 14, 2011

• We note with sadness the death of South Carolina native Joe Frazier, who was the heavyweight boxing champion of the world during the 1970s and fought memorable bouts with Muhammad Ali. "Smoking Joe" beat Ali and then lost to him in Manila in one of the epic fights of all times. He struggled thereafter with being Ali's whipping post but finally assumed forgiveness for the cruel taunts that Ali rained down on him. Frazier was, by all accounts, a thoroughly decent man, and he earned a spot in boxing history.

Rhame Arena

We're glad to see that the city of Camden is exploring alternatives for aging Rhame Arena. The building is becoming more dilapidated with each passing year, and something needs to be done, whether it's razing it or restoring it. Of course, money is a factor, just as it is in all government decisions these days. We will say that city officials have overworked the bureaucratic jargon in their appraisal of the situation, saying an "adaptive reuse" could be a possible alternative. We are assuming "adaptive reuse" means repairing the building and making it feasible for some type of ...
