As editors, we like the dying part . . . The city was born amid deception, conspiracy, and violence . . . These days, it's a city of winter balls and garden parties on soft summer evenings, a city of private clubs where white-haired old gentlemen, with their martinis or mint juleps in hand, still genuflect in front of portraits of Robert E. Lee. It's also a city of brutal crime scenes and drug corners . . "
