Phillips: Fate stepped in

Isn't it funny -- by that I mean strange -- how things have a way of working out? Call it fate, destiny, karma, luck, a blessing or any combination of those things, sometimes the timing of certain events in our lives is uncanny.

Rampell: N.Y.’s bizarre uproar over topless women

Moment of Nature - Aug. 28, 2015

If I were creative enough to write a song about the weather conditions this summer and how they have impacted our public trees, I would call it the TDB Blues. What do I mean by that? Let me count the ways.
