We don't want to stay stuck with phoney Ould Ireland ideas, nor should we look for the new Tiger in everything. Is there too much bragging about our economic strength, when the lopsidedness of wealth distribution, and other factors, make city streets dangerous? There was a time when latenight newspapermen would walk home to any quarter of the city and hardly see a soul at, say 2 or 3 a.
One old reporter remembers a couple which used to appear in the early hours in Grafton Street, and they just went from window to window looking in awe.
They obviously lived nearby; one of them was so disabled that he could walk only with great difficulty, and with the help of his companion, and obviously could not have withstood even a normal day's crush of pedestrians. Finally, nothing stated about the virtues of our smaller roads can be taken as meaning that pot-holes should be tolerated. The DUP long ago lost the debate — now it has lost the votes.

Abingdon, about two hours from Floyd, has that energy too; a regional arts center called Heartwood is due to open in June. We visited Ms. In recent years, Ms. The drive to the museum, we learned belatedly, was on one of the most breathtakingly twisting roads in a region of shockingly complicated driving. But on arrival, we were pleased to find a child-friendly 19th-century working farm. At the museum, the current show, which is on display through July, is on the history of the dulcimer.

A place of beauty – a place of song. This is The Crooked Road.
But there is another kind of history in these parts too. On the edge of town, a Wal-Mart looms. The Lincoln Theate r and the Francis Marion hotel next door are lone standouts in a time of deep economic upheaval. Built in by the furniture factory owner Charles Wassum, the Lincoln is a masterpiece of Mayan revival; it stood empty from until a renovation in The hotel hails from the same era; it was rehabilitated from a boarding house to its former glory five years ago.

After checking into our neat black-and-white room, we had a bite to eat and ran into the Lincoln for its monthly event, Song of the Mountains, a collaboration between the Lincoln Theater and PBS. The theater is gorgeous — Art Deco murals on the walls, depicting scenes of Southern history.
Sweet Potato Pie, a five-woman bluegrass band, was on stage. She was the only child in the audience. After two songs, she and Ian left for the hotel. They missed the Carter Family Sound, the group that took the stage next and played a string of songs in homage to one of the first families of bluegrass and country music. The place for little ones, they said, is the Carter Family Fold, in Hiltons, a few hours down the road. On Saturday nights, old-time bands pack the house and children run free. You could spend a whole summer here, I realized, going to jams every night, seeking out sit-down venues like the Fold, and the Lincoln, standing-room-only music sessions in stores, and hiking the trails along New River.
And we promised ourselves that we would. The cover article on May 22, about a drive along the music trail known as the Crooked Road in Virginia, misspelled the name of a town on the trail. It is Abingdon, as shown on the map and referred to elsewhere in the piece, not Abington.
A picture caption with the article misstated the location of another town on the trail, Mouth of Wilson. It is in southwestern Virginia, not northern Virginia. The article also misstated the location of a Carroll County shooting in that people still talk about. It was in the county courthouse, not the jail. Tell us what you think.
