A couple of months back, a friend sent me an article from The New York Times which described the work being done with character development by the administrators of two very different New York City area schools. The first one, KIPP (Knowledge Is Power Program) Charter School, serves economically disadvantaged students, while the other one, the Riverdale Country School, is a very exclusive private school. The administrators of these two very different schools found themselves struggling with the same question; that is, what does it take to be a successful person?

• NBC is hiring former First Child Chelsea Clinton to do news projects. She will join Jenna Bush Hager, the daughter of ex-President George W. Bush, in doing work for the network, including the "Today" show. Looking at the kids of a former Democratic and Republican president, it strikes us that the duo might comprise the only semblance of political neutrality that left-leaning NBC has ever shown.

In this day of polarized politics, you rarely hear a member of one party criticize a member of the same party, and you seldom hear a compliment thrown towards a candidate from someone who resides in the opposite camp. But earlier this week, as Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas kicked off his 2016 presidential campaign, Rep. Peter King of New York, a Republican just like Cruz, was free in dismissing Cruz as "a guy with a big mouth and no results." Going on to liken Cruz to a carnival barker, King verbally eviscerated the Texas senator. Of course, there's ...

In fact, they pocket more than $2 million of your tax dollars every year in South Carolina alone.
