At the Town Green event a couple of weekends ago, I had a lengthy conversation with Councilman Pat Partin about council's vision to grow Camden.

I guess that she will wear a dress, perhaps even a new one. But the hat is the thing.

She was not a pretty woman in the days of her youth. Her lips were too thin, her forehead too high and her eyes so round that they seemed to bulge into the lens of the glasses she wore.
The road diet -- what a mistake. Even the mayor admits it could be a mistake. When the mayor was running for office he led me to believe that he was against the Broad Street diet.
