Gasoline prices

It appears that claims of $5-a-gallon gasoline in South Carolina that were made a few months ago were nothing more than speculation, as the price of fuel is now coming down and is actually lower than it was a year ago. That's good news, of course, and experts say one reason is that people are driving less, using more fuel-efficient cars, making fewer trips and carpooling. There's another option we'd like to suggest, one that can save money while at the same time improving health. It's walking. What could be simpler than that?

Editorial: Sen. Graham

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 ...

Reader: Diversification not needed at Clemson

I have been a member of IPTAY (Clemson University's athletic fundraising organization) for the last 26 years. Needless to say, I support and generally agree with the manner in which Clemson is operated. Recently, however, I am in disagreement with its president's call for more diversification. Generally, when someone makes such a call, they simply want more hyphenated Americans.
