Master potter John Bartlam made America’s first porcelain

In 1972, Dr. George Terry travelled to Cainhoy, on the Wando River near Charleston, on a hunch. For years he had been researching a potter named John Bartlam who came to America from Staffordshire, England, in 1763, seeking a profitable trade in American made ceramics. Terry knew Bartlam located a kiln and pottery works somewhere near Cainhoy and he wanted to find it.

Reader suggests getting out of our ‘bubbles’ to fight racism

Where does racism come from? Some say it's been around forever; and, you're not going to change that. Now, that's a discussion stopper! If we say we are not racist in any way shape or form, we're only kidding ourselves. Racism is alive and well. It lives on a continuum from minimally racist to extremely racist. If you ask a class of school children, "Where does racism begin?" They'll tell you, "At home, parents, family, the neighborhood, the playground." Out of the mouths of babes! Are we hard-wired to only be concerned about our own?

Clithero said he remembered feeling safe at his posts during his military career because of military police (MPs), but had never properly thanked them for their service.
