Creepy nation

Actor George Clooney is handsome and personable in the style of Hollywood male stars of the 1930s/1950s, which is a relief. But what a nation of creeps we have become. He is giving a supper at his home for the benefit of President Barack Obama's re-election, which, it is estimated, will reap $15 million from people anxious to say that they have shared a salad with the actor and gazed at the president. This spectacle is shameful to contemplate and it makes one wonder what kind of a country we have become when empty-headed vainglorious non-entities pay good ...

Editorial: GOP needs to broaden appeal

The Republican presidential field is already getting crowded, and the South Carolina GOP primary is often viewed as a bellwether for White House hopefuls. Because this is a conservative state, candidates in past years have often moved to the right while campaigning here. But a new poll shows Republican voters in South Carolina might be moving away from some of the hard-line social issues they have embraced in the past. As a side note, many political observers believe the party "had better get out of people's bedrooms if it wants to broaden its appeal."

Parker: 2016 -- The woman trap

While the trend isn't necessarily intentional, it cannot be ignored either. The awareness we are attached to something more is a key component to our continued existence upon Earth. Fortunately, I think the roots of this respect are already planted in the passions of the most perfect people, our children.
