Graham and Cantor

Politics is often surprising, and trends don't always develop the way the so-called political pundits predict. Nowhere was that more evident Tuesday than in South Carolina and Virginia. Sen. Lindsey Graham swept to a resounding Palmetto State victory over a host of primary opponents, winning the nomination without having to endure a run-off, while in Virginia, U.S. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor went down to a surprising defeat, knocked off by a little-known, under-financed Tea Party candidate.

‘I am one of them’

I am a Green Beret, albeit an older one. I haven't worn my "Green Sponge" in over 40 years. I am also a Camden resident. When it was announced that my fellow Special Forces Association soldiers would be visiting the Revolutionary War Park (on Thursday) I made certain I would be there. It was a bitter-sweet experience.

Open golf championships are held at the classic Pinehurst Number Two course, designed by famed golf course architect Donald Ross, who also crafted Camden Country Club.
