RALEIGH — During the fall campaign in North Carolina, the presidential and gubernatorial races captured most of the attention. That was understandable. But the reelection of Sen. Richard Burr deserves at least as much post-election attention, for two compelling reasons.

RALEIGH — The usual crowd was hanging out in the parking lot of my neighborhood firehouse in Connecticut, sometime about 1965, when Mr. Andy drove by in his new Oldsmobile 98.
