Voter ID

Politicians are known to exaggerate from time to time, and U.S. Rep. James Clyburn followed that tradition earlier this week when he said a South Carolina law requiring voters to show a picture ID when going to the polls hearkens back to the Jim Crow era, when all sorts of measures prevented blacks from going to the polls. Those days are gone forever, though they remained in force for too long, and the new law -- it's being challenged by the Obama administration's Justice Department -- poses no threat to trying to disenfranchise people. Rather, it's a safeguard ...

The planes that didn’t crash

Most of us are familiar with the antiquated adage of "no news is good news" or its cohort, "bad news travels fast." With the former, the absence of information to the contrary justifies continued optimism. Bad news is usually associated with more urgent matters; matters we are inclined to transfer more quickly to one another. Good news is boring, right? News is defined one way as "matter that is newsworthy." Newsworthy is defined as "interesting enough to the general public to warrant reporting." If we really think about it, good news rarely fits the definition of "news" because it is ...

Caring for our battlefields of history

American soldiers on both sides never dreamed of airplanes in their combat when the battle of Camden was fought on August 16, 1780 at Gum Swamp. Yet, just a few weeks ago, I led the commanders and staff of much of the 9th (Ninth) Air Force and its fighter squadrons across our battlefield to study the terrain and tactics. What would today's Air Force Major General Lawrence Wells and his colonels care about a 232-year-old Revolutionary War battle? Simple question with a solid answer, of which many of our local citizens may not be aware. Technology, armaments, and accoutrements ...

Editorial: Tone it down

There are many things we like about Gov. Nikki Haley, chief among them being her determined focus on economic development. Haley has been a tireless campaigner for South Carolina when it comes to attracting business to the Palmetto State, and it's paid off in lots of jobs and significant tax revenue. We also like the fact she's a female of Indian descent who helps the diversity picture in South Carolina.
