LFD to the rescue

On Nov. 29th I was on my way home for lunch and saw the Lugoff Fire Department in front of my neighbor's house. After parking in the road and walking over to where my neighbor was standing I found out that, fortunately, the house was not on fire but a scene was taking place that looked like it should have been on television.

Changing opinion, not 'flip-flopping'

The term "flip-flop" has come to be one of the most caustic charges that can be thrown at a political candidate, and rightly so. It's hard to like a candidate who appears to bend his views to suit whichever audience he's addressing, and candidates who insist on taking one position one day and another the next day don't appear to be serious. But sometimes we as voters and political observers take this position to an extreme, pushing people into never changing their positions lest they be termed flip-floppers.

Gullible and guilty

Those of us who jump for joy when we hear that Governor Haley is deeply concerned about education and is planning to dedicate $160 million in new spending for education might consider, as we bow heads in hope and tenuous gratitude, that such concern on her part is coming awfully late but just in time for her possible re-election. Better late than never? Perhaps! But better earlier, for sure.
