How widespread is public corruption in S.C.?

After six years of peeling back layers of our corrupt state government, nothing should surprise us. And yet Judge Manning's ruling was still a shock -- it didn't seem possible for a judge to shut down a grand jury investigation into alleged corruption by the Speaker of the House and argue that Harrell's staff and colleagues on the House Ethics Committee must first decide if he has committed a crime.

Wisdom

I never aspired to possess wisdom. In fact, mere mortals would never achieve such a goal. I did want to be educated, something that was usually denied for females.

I learned that if I could not be male, I had better become educated ...

Tuesday's elections opened that door across the country as in several states, moderate Republicans won primary victories over well-financed challengers from the right.
