Charlotte With An S

Welcome once again to our semi-regular feature with a title that makes sense in context but I'm too tired to explain it right now. This is where McNeil tells all about his adventures in Charlotte, North Carolina. McNeil's latest dispatch follows: "I was feeling down so I went to the dollar store and bought one of those plastic silverware holders that fit into a kitchen drawer. The other one had some kind of white powder in the little slots where the spoons and knives should go. It was either salt or sugar, probably, but I didn't lick it to find out. I guess it made things, my outlook, a little better. More positive. It's good to be proactive. I read that in a magazine."
