After a long day showing my friend and his wife highlights of the Holy City, we were saying our farewells at the cruise ship terminal.

She looked at him and with a touch of sadness asked, “Barry, if Ronald ever comes to Columbus, what could we show him?”

Barry, comparing what they’d seen in Charleston to pitiful offerings of their own city, was at a loss for words.

I saved the day by suggesting, “Show me your pictures of Charleston.”
