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.

As a scout, it’s up to you. If the food you make is inedible, you and your fellow scouts don’t eat. If you pitch your tent in the wrong place, you and your tentmate are going to get wet. If you don’t reach down to help, no one else climbs up.
