• If you think the Kennedy family no longer has clout, consider: Caroline Kennedy is said to be the driving force behind the cancellation of the History Channel's series on the family, though the executive producer insists the script was meticulously researched and historically accurate. He said the aim was to produce a story that showed the family's difficulties as well as triumphs, and JFK's romantic trysts were included. Of course it's not only Democrats who can pull such rank; several years ago, a series on Ronald Reagan was cancelled after Nancy Reagan voiced objections.
Just as it sometimes takes a scandal to engage Americans in a national conversation about sex, race or some other touchy topic, it sadly has taken a deranged gunman to launch us into a national argument about civility.
The beginning of a new year brings the start of many activities, including the opening of the 2011 session of the South Carolina General Assembly. Obviously, our legislators face more than even the usual level of challenges because of the $1 billion budget shortfall and the redrawing of legislative districts that will be done as a result of the 2010 census. As part of their deliberations, legislators will tackle a variety of issues related to K-12 education. I had an interesting time over the holidays reading the bills that were prefiled in December. Following are some proposed laws impacting K-12 ...

These people have never been particularly warm toward me or my children from my first marriage. Nate and I have a child together, and they treat her with the same indifference. They give the other grandchildren expensive toys for Christmas, and ours get junk. The favoritism now extends to the great-grandchildren. I've tried to be nice about their treatment, but a person can only take so much. I told Nate I've had it with his family ...

We wrote recently of a change in the way KershawHealth is managing its emergency department, sending seriously threatened patients to one area for immediate, vital care while directing others who are less ill to be treated in a non-emergency system. It's cost-effective, but also provides quality care for both types of patients.
