    Once upon a time, when I was but knee high to a moose, I was playing with dry-erase markers in my parents’ basement. At that time, our house was painted all white, so to my fine eye it seemed as if the house was asking for it. I told myself that it was

    There are the cases that we all hear about: Michael Brown, Eric Garner, Walter Scott, Tamir Rice. They grab headlines and cause protests. The problem is that for every incident that gets headlines, there are many others that simply do not get reported. The difference is that these attacks are caught on video

The restrictions, as best I can gather from my limited research, require a 25% cut in water usage for everyone except agriculture, which I think represents approximately 80% of the total water usage.

Some things never go out of fashion and are labeled as timeless classics. Of course, if enough time passes, we forget those as well and replace them with other “timeless” classics.
