Editor's Note: Of leadership and love

Savannah has had many civil rights rallies before. And as far as downtown crowds go, every year -- other than 2020, that is -- sees a St. Patrick’s crowd that is much larger. But this gathering was different

Editor's Note: Taking the masks off

When people accuse those who wear masks of 'living in fear,' I think this could be a form of projection -- it's really they who are frightened. I assure you, when I pop a mask onto my face to go grocery shopping for 20 minutes, I don't feel scared in the least.
