Today's Features

  • Moonlight and magnolias is a phrase used to describe the beauty, serenity and romanticism of the South before the Civil War, as experienced by the landed gentry. The popular film “Gone with the Wind” exemplifies this feeling. The South’s wealthy landowners lost everything they held near and dear in the Civil War, and so moonlight and magnolias was forevermore tarnished. Today, films like “Gone with the Wind” have the ability to temporarily, but perfectly, restore this long-lost feeling to a fortunate audience.

  • You must know that as I write these weekly columns, I try to keep a positive spin on things. After all, to me that’s what assets really boils down to.
    On the other hand, sometimes it is hard to pretend all is right in the world, when it really isn’t.
    The asset for this week is peaceful conflict resolution. While the definition entails ending conflict non-violently, I feel that should also extend to words and deeds, and not just boil down to throwing punches.
