  • COLUMN: Mulberry-dotted mare a silly sight

    By JIM ADKINS, Guest Columnist

    When I was a kid in Hobart, my aunt Elsie would take me berry picking with her every summer. We had a wonderful time, roaming the verdant woods and picking mulberries or blackberries; whichever was in season. It was always hot during berry-picking season, but that didn’t discourage us.

    The lady was a spider, a daddy-long-legs that somehow found its way into my shower overnight.

    We put “debt crisis” in quotation marks because while it has been called that, its resemblance to reality is questionable.
