As I walked back from the Criminal Justice Facility to the Police Administration Building this afternoon, I took the route across MacArthur Square. I had to stop briefly and absorb the warmth of the sun on my shoulders. There was a balmy breeze blowing across the plaza, and I turned to look west at the County Courthouse from the top of the stairs that lead down to the fountain. The plaza was vacant except for the 2 statues that keep constant vigil. The blowers from the parking garage below hummed, and the sun was so bright that I had to close my eyes for moment.
