In our haste to give tax breaks to developers and homeowners with the cash to install complying green energy sources, has anyone put forth a plan to make up the accompanying cash shortfall to the county? Where will the lost revenue be made up? If there is a plan, great! If there's not a plan, that means the average mom and pop homeowner will be subsiding developers and those with the cash to comply.

How many millions? That would be 500 (up from 476 earlier today) of them if you win this week's eye-popping Mega Millions prize. It's hard to get one's head around, no?

After a dip, everyone could then towel off with a ten. This morning people are going crazy over the news that they have a chance to win what would be the largest Mega Millions pot in history.

I got a statement from my broker for proceeds from a fraction of a share. I didn't get the share, I got cash in-lieu, which was $25.71.

Winston-Salem, N.C.--Last weekend several hundred serious historians, with a few dozen journalists thrown in, gathered on the sedate campus of Wake Forest University here in the changeless hills of the North Carolina Piedmont for a most unusual celebration: The 50th anniversary of the publication of a book entitled "The Mind of the South."Written by an eccentric and enigmatic Carolinian named Wilbur Joseph Cash, this is not a widely known book, nor one that I would especially recommend to the casual reader.
