Editorial: August brings a range of pleasures

Email News Alerts

Editorial topics sometimes become pretty scarce in summer, and so summer itself sometimes becomes a subject.

Who can disagree that August is an agreeable time of year?


Of course, August can be unruly, when it delivers excessive heat or fails to deliver timely rain. Or when it delivers early frost or too much rain.Or when it produces wind storms.

On balance, though, August is a pretty pleasant month.
