This week was slow by design. While Arts and Screen Editor Patrick Sharbaugh jetted off to Mexico to recover from the chaos of Spoleto 2006, I was content to meander through the Saturday morning farmer’s market with impish Jack Barna in tow. A trip up to North Charleston to check out a Magic: The Gathering (the trading card game played by more than six million people worldwide) tournament, a night at the Joe for a baseball game in honor of disabilities awareness, and a post-Spoleto gathering that pitted zany wine labels against one another in fierce competition rounded out the week.
