On Monday, City Attorney Mujeeb Shah-Kahn voiced Greensboro’s intention to fight the lawsuit, which seeks damages after council declined to give the network, owned by husband-and-wife team Michael and Ramona Woods, a $300,000 economic-development loan with a 10- year repayment period, with interest accruing just the first year....

I’d never seen a groom so drunk before in my life — not in the scores of weddings I’ve seen live, not on TV, not on the internet, though if I poke around on there I might be able to find a guy more hammered than Goldie’s betrothed as he prepared to take his vows....

We named her Rosaleen, using the Gaelic spelling, though in any language it means the same thing: a little rose. It had the right amount of syllables to create a rhythm with her surname when you say it out loud. Plus we’d call her “Rosie.” I loved that.....

You don’t see the pox so much these days — smallpox has been relegated to an onerous presence in tales of the distant past. Syphillis, the venereal disease that supposedly brought down Ben Franklin, is a form of the pox that modern medicine has backed into a corner, mostly relegated to promiscuous frat boys and barroom sex addicts....
