Hallmark at last

Night and day

PHILADELPHIA -- If political conventions tell us anything beyond the predictable, the one held last week in Cleveland and the other going on this week in Philadelphia pose contrasts so stark that one wonders if the two groups hail from the same country.

Tatum: So long, and thanks for all the fish

I met the guy -- seems just like yesterday -- one day when I was home from the Lowcountry visiting the office. I think I had met him briefly when he was first interviewing here, but didn't remember much -- after all, I was leaving and pretty well distracted.
