How we still fight the Civil War

Fort Sumter surrendered to the rebels again last week with what one observer called "measured enthusiasm," compared to the Civil War centennial celebration 50 years earlier. For that, South Carolina, a grateful war-weary nation thanks you.

Broad Street two-lane plan needs additional review

I have just returned from the downtown post office. I spent all of three minutes going from the Tickle Hill and Black River roads intersection to Fair Street downtown. The next 15 minutes were spent from Rutledge Street to the post office parking lot. This was at 2:30 p.m. on Thursday afternoon.

The backed-up traffic will be horrible, and unless you meet ...

The hand that rocks the ballot box

S.C., immigration and ‘Us vs. Them’

First things first: every nation must secure and control its borders. This is not political rhetoric or an ideological judgment but a simple geo-political fact.

A disturbing trend

We wrote recently of the disturbing trend in the White House of spinning every issue through press spokesmen rather than engaging in open questioning about issues of interest to Americans.
