If you think Charlotte seems too quiet now....

I started work in this building exactly 35 years ago today. I was supposed to begin March 1, but my third-hand Toyota Celica died in a snowstorm in Washington, D.C. I phoned the managing editor to ask whether I should stay there until it got fixed or take a train down to start on time. He told me that, in Chicago, the preferred thing to do was strip a broken car of identifying marks, leave it by the side of the road and call the insurance company to report it as “missing.”
