Mitt unzipped

WASHINGTON -- Mitt Romney "unzipped" is the stuff of cartoonists' dreams.

Noted and passed -- April 6, 2012

• Everybody realizes that airline food isn't the best – even if you get anything at all to eat, which isn't often -- but a woman traveling on Qantas Airlines from Los Angeles to Melbourne, Australia, last week got the ultimate insult -- crawling maggots in a bag of trail mix distributed by a flight attendant. There's no word on whether she had to use her airline sickness bag after discovering the creatures mid-snack, but Qantas' offer to her -- $400 off her $1,600 ticket -- seems a bit chintzy.

Food for fines at the library

At some point, most people have had fines for overdue library books. As offenses go, it's pretty slight. Nonetheless, librarians report that patrons will often avoid the library after accruing fines, both to avoid paying them and from embarrassment. Many library services can't be utilized once excessive fines accrue. Even new online services, like downloading e-books and music, are blocked if a patron's account is not in good standing.

Voter ID

Politicians are known to exaggerate from time to time, and U.S. Rep. James Clyburn followed that tradition earlier this week when he said a South Carolina law requiring voters to show a picture ID when going to the polls hearkens back to the Jim Crow era, when all sorts of measures prevented blacks from going to the polls. Those days are gone forever, though they remained in force for too long, and the new law -- it's being challenged by the Obama administration's Justice Department -- poses no threat to trying to disenfranchise people. Rather, it's a safeguard ...

The planes that didn’t crash

Most of us are familiar with the antiquated adage of "no news is good news" or its cohort, "bad news travels fast." With the former, the absence of information to the contrary justifies continued optimism. Bad news is usually associated with more urgent matters; matters we are inclined to transfer more quickly to one another. Good news is boring, right? News is defined one way as "matter that is newsworthy." Newsworthy is defined as "interesting enough to the general public to warrant reporting." If we really think about it, good news rarely fits the definition of "news" because it is ...

Noted and passed - Dec. 22, 2014

• Beverly Hope Melton's murder on Dec. 26 three years ago shocked Kershaw and Chesterfield counties. Nickolas Jermaine Miller, 26, continues to be held at the Kershaw County Detention Center (KCDC) after he reportedly confessed to abducting Melton in Chesterfield County, repeatedly raping her and then beating her death with a baseball bat in Kershaw County. Miller even led authorities to Melton's body. Despite his reported confession, Miller has yet to work out a plea deal or face a jury. And he won't, as we reported Friday, until Feb. 9, 2016, more than four years after his arrest ...

I-20 ramp accident

Lugoff Fire-Rescue (LF-R) personnel work to extricate two passengers from this car around 1 p.m. Thursday, which apparently rolled over several times after having gone up an embankment on the eastbound I-20 ramp at Camden Exit 98.

LF-R crews stabilized the vehicle and successfully extricated both patients with rescue tools. LF-R Chief Dennis Ray said KershawHealth EMS transported both patients to Palmetto Richland for possible trauma, with a LF-R firefighter ...
