We doubt that many Kershaw County residents are waiting in breathless anticipation for the presidential debate tonight. After all, mirroring the normal path of politics over the last few years, this year's contest between President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney has been more of a mud-wrestling contest than a serious forum over the many difficult issues facing the United States.
President Obama is our only hope of statesmanship, leadership and large vision for this nation at this critical time in our history. Obama has the courage of Lincoln. A self-governing, free society cannot function if a large segment of its population ceases to believe that government represents them, is working for them, is them.
I write this based on a fear for the well-being and future of America. If I am wrong, somebody set me straight, please. The historian philosopher Arnold Toynbee said, "Civilizations die from suicide, not murder, and start to decay when they lose their moral fiber and the cultural elite turns parasitic, exploiting the masses." In other words, they die from within. The history of the rise and fall of great civilizations lends support to this.
I just wanted to say thanks to the person who paid for our dinner at Shoney's on April 12.

With Augusta being only a couple hours away from Kershaw County, the Masters golf tournament holds a great deal of allure for this area. The azaleas at Augusta National are famous for their popping colors and their beauty, but they're no prettier than those which are currently at their peak in Camden, we might add. But there's something magical about the Masters, which is ranked by many players as the one tournament they'd like to win more than any other.
