Column: The news process isn’t fake, either

Strange things happen in the nation's capitol everyday. It's pretty much a given considering Washington, D.C., is where Congress meets, the President lives and the Superme Court presides. There are times when headlines seem like they belong in the National Inquirer instead of The Washington Post.

Column: 18 years and counting

Thursday marked my 18th anniversary with the C-I. I celebrated by doing what I usually do on Thursdays: polish up my latest article (in this case, my interview with new Kershaw County School District Superintendent Dr. Shane Robbins); proofread some pages (including this one, so if you find any mistakes ... uh ... talk to the editor); and load up today's articles, columns, obituaries, etc., on the C-I's website.

In March, Shane Robbins had left Fort Jackson's Moncrief Army Health Clinic and was driving on I-20 to a hotel in Richland County when he received a phone call from a South Carolina number. Thinking it was from the clinic, he answered. It turned out the person calling was a representative of a firm conducting a nationwide search for someone to replace Dr. Frank Morgan as superintendent of the Kershaw County School District (KCSD).

Column: Annapolis

On Friday, I felt ready to write about what happened in Annapolis, Md., the day before. I needed to wait at least 24 hours, in order to know as much as I could about the senseless murder of five people working at The Capitol Gazette in Annapolis, Md., on Thursday. Friday, though, I went on Facebook and posted a draft version of this column -- admitting that parts of it could have ended up being outdated almost as soon as I wrote it -- with the intention of publishing it as my column for this Friday.
