‘We The People’

We the People have the power to make changes in Congress. In fact, In November, members of Congress that are seeking reelection and have not been serving our country and its people (as they should have been) can be eliminated by voting for another that is best suited to serve the people (even a write-in candidate.) "The people are responsible for the character of their Congress. If that body be ignorant, reckless, and corrupt, it is because the people tolerate ignorance, recklessness, and corruption. If it be intelligent, brave and pure, it is because the people demand those high qualities ...

We need a leader

In reading several editorials in various media lately, yours seems to be on the same theme that the god Obama needs to be given four more years to finishing destroying this country. He hasn't been able to do what he needs to do so let's give him some more time. Time to lecture us on how we should not speak ill of anyone unless they do not have liberal ideas. Time to keep saying everything is not my fault and you need to blame someone else (just who is he going to blame if reelected). Time to lecture ...

Revisiting Wilson’s ‘truly disadvantaged’

Twenty-five years after sociologist William Julius Wilson's important study of urban decline and vanishing "marriageable men," poverty is still with us. At least, we're finding lots of new ways to argue about it, even if our theories are no less sharply divided than the rest of our politics.

Less-than-stellar

Nobody's really sure whether or not presidential debates actually influence voters' decisions, although the so-called experts say the small minority of undecided voters are indeed subject to what goes on when candidates stand behind lecterns and fire bombs at each other. If that's indeed true, then the contest between President Obama and Mitt Romney got a bit tighter Wednesday night, as even the staunchest liberals conceded that Romney got the best of the president in their first debate.

Loving ‘Mrs. Montgomery’

I love Mrs. Montgomery. I am sure many of my former classmates enjoyed Harvey Teal's October 1 (Kershaw County Historical Society column), "A visit with 'Coota' Montgomery." I still find it very difficult to address her as Coota. She will always be Mrs. Montgomery to me.

Blue Transition

Six weeks have passed since my oldest son walked through our back door. The mere mention of this makes the stretch seem even longer. Of course, aside from a normal dose of missing their brother, for his siblings, this time represents six weeks of more slices of pizza at dinner, shorter waits for the bathroom, and total control of the TV remote. For me, it suggests more intangibles. It is the void, the missing place setting at our table, and the one less body charging down the stairs for breakfast like a horse running for open country.
