In his broadside against President Obama, Dick Cheney fails to grasp the central irony of his situation. Cheney wants us to respond to his cries of "fire," but does not understand that all we see when he speaks is the arsonist.

William Buckley Jr.

No question, the Internet and online sales are growing rapidly; to propose that we stop shopping online would be foolish. What isn't foolish is to look into the future and imagine what our towns will look like if we don't support our local businesses, at least with some of our purchases.
