• Fie on those who are criticizing First Lady Michelle Obama because she served pizza, sausages and Buffalo wings at the White House Super Bowl viewing. Mrs. Obama has been spearheading an effort to get Americans to eat more healthful fare, but she's right in saying that it isn't an all-or-nothing proposition. People can adopt better diets without completely eliminating those "fun" foods that almost everyone likes. Carping critics need to pipe down.

When people talk about the tax structure in South Carolina, "dysfunctional" is the word most often used to describe it.

The revenue structure used to fund K-12 education is a morass of provisos, special legislation and conflicting statutes. It is complicated, confusing and arbitrary; it just doesn't work. (A metaphor related to duct tape comes to mind when I think about it.) The overdependence on the sales tax for school funding, caused by Act 388, has worsened the impact of the ...

We're glad to see that the city of Camden is exploring alternatives for aging Rhame Arena. The building is becoming more dilapidated with each passing year, and something needs to be done, whether it's razing it or restoring it. Of course, money is a factor, just as it is in all government decisions these days. We will say that city officials have overworked the bureaucratic jargon in their appraisal of the situation, saying an "adaptive reuse" could be a possible alternative. We are assuming "adaptive reuse" means repairing the building and making it feasible for some type of ...
