This morning's newspaper was chock full of well-written and locally relevant pieces, like this one, this one, and this one among others. Many others, in fact. So many that I was able to linger over my Journal happily for a second cup of coffee.
Sincerely, I know a lot of people don't take the paper, but today's is well worth buying. (Plus when you are done, you can use it to stoke the fireplace*, because it is bone-chillingly cold today.)
