I knew I’d get here eventually. All of the heartbreaking buzzer beaters, missed calls and unforced turnovers. All of those hours spent in front of the TV, hoping desperately that someone other than Duke would win the ACC Tournament. Now, here I am in the city most well-known for hosting it....

As I write this, the Triad and communities across North Carolina are doing their typical ‘run to the store for bread, rush home before any white stuff touches the road, cancel everything’ routine.

Exactly one week ago the clock turned to 2015, and the vast amount of resolution messages and tweets came flooding in. We’ve all heard the “I will lose X pounds,” and “I will be nicer to people,” ones that are enough to give us a headache. New Year’s resolutions are usually as valid as promises from politicians....

What a difference a year makes. Last Christmas season I was sitting around sketching out novel plots and penning lyrics to satirical holiday songs (Have Yourself a Pat McCrory Christmas was a big hit!). This year I was digging through more than 400 emails the City of Greensboro turned over to me on Dec....
