The toughest conflicts to resolve are often asymmetrical in nature, where one side is willing to abide by basic standards of honesty and fair play, the other side is not, and the spoils of victory end up going to the cheaters.

Funny thing about life: You never know what twists it’ll spring on you from one day to the next. We were reminded of this reality this week with the sudden passing of Halifax County Sheriff’s Lieutenant Steve Cassada, as easygoing and decent a person as you’ll ever want to meet. Steve died Saturday night while dining out with his wife and family members at an Altavista restaurant. His death is a tremendous loss for local law enforcement, to say nothing of all the other realms that were graced by his presence.

I was all ready to settle down Monday night and get a jump on this week’s column when my wife and 11-year-old daughter fired up the VCR in another room and popped in an old copy of How the Grinch Stole Christmas. (Oh the things Dr. Seuss would have thunk about Blu-Ray).

I was all ready to settle down Monday night and get a jump on my writing for this week’s edition when my wife and 11-year-old daughter fired up the VCR in another room and popped in an old copy of How the Grinch Stole Christmas. (Oh the things Dr. Seuss would have thunk about Blu-Ray). How could a self-respecting husband and dad pass up such a moment? I couldn’t, so I set aside the household laptop long enough to join the giggling Grinchettes on the living room sofa. Sitting through 22 minutes of bliss does help to soften the column-writing grind.
