Social Security – With the 2 percent funding cut extended for another year, the system will lose billions. I don't believe most of the people desire this. Those who benefit the most are those who earn more than $40,000 a year. The few dollars that one gains each pay period isn't worth jeopardizing the system for future generations. A CNN/Opinion Research Corp. poll conducted a year ago found that 60 percent of adults who aren't retired expect to get nothing – zero -- from Social Security in their older age. They're mistaken. As misinformation and mistrust grow ...

Hello and Happy Friday! If you ever want time to fly by even faster, agree to write a monthly column in your local newspaper! Yes, it's that time again. Let's see what I have in my laptop for you this month.
Not so long ago, we remarked that this country's war on cancer, initiated by President Nixon more than four decades ago, had in many ways been a disappointment, with the death rate from various kinds of cancers still high. But in some areas, there have been great advances, and a new study released this week proved what many have believed all along: that colonoscopies are extremely effective in reducing the incidence of colo-rectal cancer. In patients tracked as long as 20 years, the death rate was reduced by more than 50 percent.

Regarding your editorial in the Nov. 14 C-I regarding "Pit Bulls," I was disappointed that you chose to use the two recent incidents in Kershaw County as an opportunity to condemn a particular breed of dog, instead of focusing attention on the actual problem, which is the lack of responsible pet ownership. This would have been an appropriate time to support the passage and vigorous enforcement of laws that focus, not on breed, but on people's responsibility for their dogs' behavior. These include measures that hold owners of all dogs accountable for properly housing, supervising and controlling their dogs ...
I read Mr. Charlie Humphries' letter in Friday's Chronicle-Independent with interest. In the letter, Mr. Humphries implies that because the school district is producing strong results, and it is, making investment in the future isn't really necessary right now. As he puts it, the "If it ain't broke" philosophy.
