Basketball diplomacy, Pyongyang style

It is really not so odd that we would find Dennis Rodman partying heartily with North Korea's Kim Jong Un. After all, they have so much in common. Think of Kim as Rodman with less height, fewer piercings, more nuclear menace -- and more blood on his hands.

Protecting our schools

Yes, there are crazies walking among us, even in the U.S. government, but I ask you to keep things in perspective. They are not standing on every street corner with assault weapons waiting to slaughter school children. As sad as the Sandy Hook situation was, and as much as we all would like to undo that travesty, it is a very, very rare occurrence.

‘Open carry’

South Carolina has a reasonable concealed weapons policy which allows law-abiding people to carry handguns after going through a relatively simple permitting process, which includes training in the proper way to safely carry firearms.
