It Ain't Easy Being Green
But it sure is easy reading in a green space, according to William Sullivan, professor of Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Sullivan's quoted in this press release touting the Thursday opening of the reading garden at the Salvation Army's Cedar Crest Community Center. Dallas is among only nine cities getting such garden spots, along with such places as Baltimore, Chicago and New York. Sounds lovely--nothing better than reading outside, except when it's 100 degrees in mid-April. --Robert Wilonsky
