Dan Conaway is in a lifelong relationship with his city. They fight, but they get back together. His new book – “In a Colorful Place” – is a collection of his columns and the columns of Otis Sanford.

“I have never considered a single vote of mine to be wasted, because it was my vote, mine alone to make, and proof of my participation as a citizen of this city, state, and country, and of the privilege and responsibility of that citizenship.”
