Interesting reads in the Sunday papers today:
A profile of Liberty University's debate program in the New York Times. BJU gets mentioned once. Liberty will probably be pleased with the article, but I wouldn't be.
"Tiny dogs are tops"--at least according to this article in today's Washington Post. Six "handbag-able breeds" have ranked in the top 15 since 2000. Miniature schnauzers are ranked No. 10 on the 2005 list. But I would definitely not recommend putting Barney in a handbag. An accompanying article focuses on the most popular of the tiny dogs--Chihuahuas. One owner is quoted as having taken his 3-month-old chihuahua to college classes, most of the national monuments, chic restaurants and high mass at Washington National Cathedral.
Looks like Richmond is having problems with its AAA Braves (similar to the controversies that led to the AA Greenville Braves packing up and moving out a couple of years ago). According to an article in today's Richmond-Times Dispatch, "the Richmond Braves say the city's keeping them in the dark about who's paying and who owns the land where the city wants to put a new ballpark."
The Post & Courier gives advice on choosing the right mulch, a topic of interest to me right now.
Someone at the Charlotte Observer likes the Carolina Classic too. The column brings up a whole list of combinations of foods that may or may not be specific to the South. A few struck home with me: slaw and chili on a hamburger (the aforementioned Wendy's Carolina Classic), tomato biscuits (these have to be hot, buttered buscuits and the tomato is salted and peppered--yum!), and drinking soft drinks in the morning (what's so strange about this? I had a Dr Pepper with a bagel just this morning).
