The awesome English language

The rules for correct grammar usage are many. They, however, are equaled to or exceeded by the exceptions. No one believes me when I tell them I never write without a dictionary and thesaurus by my side; after all, I taught English for many years. One student asked me, "When are we going to do something else except grammar?" I am not sure I consoled her when I replied, "We will soon study literature and composition." She sighed with relief until I said, "However, grammar plays a part in both of these." I should have mentioned it is also a ...

American Party

History hasn't been kind to third-party movements in this country, but that's not deterring two South Carolinians -- one with Democratic roots and the other with a Republican background -- from trying to launch the American Party, which they contend can be a viable alternative to the two majority parties. Jim Rex, who was superintendent of education in this state, and Oscar Loveless, a physician who once ran for governor, think voters need another option. In light of the gridlock in which our Congress has become mired, that's not a bad idea. The odds are long against the success ...
