Food for fines at the library

At some point, most people have had fines for overdue library books. As offenses go, it's pretty slight. Nonetheless, librarians report that patrons will often avoid the library after accruing fines, both to avoid paying them and from embarrassment. Many library services can't be utilized once excessive fines accrue. Even new online services, like downloading e-books and music, are blocked if a patron's account is not in good standing.

Voter ID

Politicians are known to exaggerate from time to time, and U.S. Rep. James Clyburn followed that tradition earlier this week when he said a South Carolina law requiring voters to show a picture ID when going to the polls hearkens back to the Jim Crow era, when all sorts of measures prevented blacks from going to the polls. Those days are gone forever, though they remained in force for too long, and the new law -- it's being challenged by the Obama administration's Justice Department -- poses no threat to trying to disenfranchise people. Rather, it's a safeguard ...

The planes that didn’t crash

Most of us are familiar with the antiquated adage of "no news is good news" or its cohort, "bad news travels fast." With the former, the absence of information to the contrary justifies continued optimism. Bad news is usually associated with more urgent matters; matters we are inclined to transfer more quickly to one another. Good news is boring, right? News is defined one way as "matter that is newsworthy." Newsworthy is defined as "interesting enough to the general public to warrant reporting." If we really think about it, good news rarely fits the definition of "news" because it is ...

Editorial: Ted Cruz

In this day of polarized politics, you rarely hear a member of one party criticize a member of the same party, and you seldom hear a compliment thrown towards a candidate from someone who resides in the opposite camp. But earlier this week, as Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas kicked off his 2016 presidential campaign, Rep. Peter King of New York, a Republican just like Cruz, was free in dismissing Cruz as "a guy with a big mouth and no results." Going on to liken Cruz to a carnival barker, King verbally eviscerated the Texas senator. Of course, there's ...

Wilson: Fighting back against food stamp fraud

Every day, in every area of our state, hardworking South Carolina taxpayers are being robbed. They are not held up at gunpoint and their homes are not burglarized. But, they are the victims of theft just the same. Criminals are stealing federal funds and using that money for their personal benefit. They are committing fraud against the food stamp program. In fact, they pocket more than $2 million of your tax dollars every year in South Carolina alone.
