I think if we all wish for cooler weather each time a leaf falls from a tree, then maybe, just maybe, autumn will peak her head into our part of the country. Until that actually happens, search for other signs of fall, like the orange pumpkin patches that are appearing outside local businesses, scarecrows and hay bales decorating front lawns, ripe persimmons and pears bending limbs with their weight, and acorns raining when the wind blows. You might even find one or two darkened muscadine grapes still clinging to the vine if the birds or squirrels missed them.
In 1994, Susan Smith, a young mother in North Carolina, was indicted for deliberately pushing her car into a lake and watching her two small boys drown as they were strapped in their car seats.

Some said they wanted to take vengeance into their own hands, which, of course, wasn't their right.
