Read a textbook in 2013?

A couple of months ago, I "rejoined" LinkedIn, the social network for business professionals.

Meyer, who's designed airplanes for most of his adult life, figured the new jet could get him -- or anyone else, for that matter, where they were going just a little faster. It would just take a bit of engineering … and a few million dollars.

I shivered slightly when I realized that this Friday night, Dec. 7, is the exact five year anniversary of the night 17-year-old Camden High School student Michael Smith died of a single gunshot blast to the chest, the first and so far only Kershaw County victim of a gang-related shooting.

‘Person of Interest’ is food for thought

Today's column did not spring from original thought. I'm not the first person to write about CBS' Person of Interest, now in the middle of its second season on Thursday nights.
