Only 10 percent of citizens say they have confidence in Congress, with no discernible difference among those who call themselves Democrats and those who say they're Republicans. Congress rates last on a list of 16 institutions, with the American military ranking first. The Gallup organization has been asking opinions of Congress since 1973, and confidence has been less than 20 percent since 2006.

Crisis of faith in government

WASHINGTON -- It is reassuring that in the midst of so much government dysfunction, the IRS has resolved the question of when and whether to tax tanning beds under the Affordable Care Act. Do not be concerned about that giddiness you feel. You are not having a nervous breakdown but are suffering a symptom commonly associated with recognition that the absurd has become the accepted norm -- and that you are, in fact, alone. Indeed, the IRS' tanning ruling comes in the nick of time. Amid incessantly breaking news -- NSA surveillance, IRS political targeting, DOJ seizing, and CIA shrugging -- Americans were beginning ...

KCSD has had a one terrific school year

The end of the school is a veritable kaleidoscope of activities and excitement, with happiness and even a little relief thrown in for good measure.

A Father's Day submission

As a Kershaw County teacher for twenty-seven years, I'm not sure I have ever properly thanked my very first teacher -- my father, Dave Spradley -- or told him how great of an impact he has had on my life and on my career. The most important lessons about literacy and education, I learned from him. Whether it was sitting on the couch, snuggled against him as he read aloud to me, or laughing at the silly poetry he recited, I remember how warm and comfortable being immersed in language and literature felt as a young child. I fell in love ...
