Finding the unexpected

Times have changed. Recently, when I heard of a young lady being robbed on the campus of the University of South Carolina, I was not surprised. Since the time was early morning -- about 1 or 2 a.m. -- and she was walking alone, she had certainly not used care. Then I had to laugh because I, in the '80s, attended night classes there. When I parked the car after driving from Camden, the location was far away and often along ill lit paths. When I parked, it was early afternoon; when I left after classes, night had fallen. I, however ...

S.C. ranks near bottom again

South Carolinians shouldn't be surprised to see the state rank poorly in yet another survey. It seems the Palmetto State is forever being relegated to the bottom tier in all kinds of indicators. Some of them, of course, don't have much validity. But the latest one, in which only five states are ranked lower than South Carolina in susceptibility to political corruption, is particularly unnerving because it's one that could be avoided with a modicum of care from legislators.

C-I in step with mainstream media

As with much of the mainstream media, your edition March 9 is a poster child for what is wrong with the mainstream media and possibly a plausible explanation as to why printed media has fallen onto hard times. A previous editorial by Martin Cahn wherein he rather pompously pronounced that his opinion -- he is a journalist whatever that is -- is vastly superior to the great unwashed's opinion. A fair presumption would be those that are not "journalists."

Column: Big green city

One of the things I enjoy most about what I do is being invited to cities around the country. Whether I'm speaking at conferences, banding birds or taking part in archaeological digs, I look forward to being able to spend time in places that are different from small town South Carolina. One of the draws for me is getting to see the way other places address conservation issues. I absolutely love seeing the various approaches to environmental issues by municipalities and hearing ideas from diverse groups of conservationists. My most recent trip was no different, giving me hope that ...

Obama and race

Attorney General Eric Holder's recent statement that race plays a part in some Americans' opposition to President Obama's policies has stirred strong reaction from both liberals and conservatives, and reaction has highlighted the fact -- no surprise here -- that blacks and whites often look at issues of race differently. We suspect that Kershaw County would mirror the national opinions of a recent Gallup poll in which people were asked whether this country's criminal justice system is biased against blacks. More than two-thirds of whites said no, while about the same percentage of blacks said yes.
