“She runs the gamut of emotions from A to B.”

That’s the infamous quip reputedly made by Dorothy Parker about an early performance by Katherine Hepburn. Witty, yes, but slightly unfair, given Hepburn’s subsequent career. Still, a limited emotional palette seems almost enviable at the moment, given that we’ve all been running the gamut from A to Z and back again, buffeted by an unprecedented confluence of disasters both natural and man-made.

Which brings me to our annual A to Z Issue, dRTB’s version of a “Best of” list. Given the present circumstances, we’ve shifted the focus slightly this year: We’re celebrating people and businesses who have been successfully riding the turbulent waves of change.

The A to Z Issue will be out in print in mid-July, but we’ll be teasing the content throughout the next several weeks, one letter at a time. Keep returning to this page, which we’ll be updating regularly.
