I feel compelled to bring to your reader's attention a slight correction regarding the photograph showing the dedication of the Patriot's Landing. The loyalist fort captured by troops commanded by Thomas Sumter was called Cary's Fort. It was located on the west side of the river fronting the old ferry. That ferry was located about one mile south of current highway bridge. The area designated as Patriot's Landing did not exist as a landing until the construction of the first bridge near that point in 1878. There is no historical significance with the spot dating back ...

Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Sen. John McCain of Arizona have been buddies for a long time, and they're cut out of the same cloth: moderate Republicans who are willing to cross the aisle to get legislation passed. The far-right wing of the GOP makes a lot of noise about whacking Graham down to size, but he keeps winning elections by sizeable margins. That suits us fine. We'll have to admit we thought it was pretty funny recently when McCain said he'd like to see his "illegitimate son, Lindsey Graham" make a run for the ...
