(A few years ago I came across an article and saved some of the information because the content is relevant and useful. Unfortuanately, I did not save the source, but I do know that it originated in the Lowcountry and wanted to provide full disclosure that even though I have edited and revised the information a good bit, it is based on the work of someone else.)

Column: The Max vs. the Don

WASHINGTON -- If I were a cartoonist..., I would often say to my friend Doug Marlette, the Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist who died 11 years ago. He'd listen patiently as I described my vision for his work, whereupon, he'd occasionally sometimes say, "Not bad."

Letter: Watch out for pols who think we're stupid

Watch out for our elected political leaders who think we are stupid and that we don't read carefully, think critically, study the issues or trust ourselves instead of blindly following them. Politicians have learned to fool us with catchy euphemisms like "Moral Mondays," "Wasteful Wednesdays," "Freedom Caucus," "Americans for Prosperity," etc. We will not be fooled. We demand straight-forward and verifiable talk.
