• The concept of balanced reporting in today's national media is pretty much a joke. Fox News isn't going to hide its favoritism of right-wing politicians, while MSNBC (and virtually all other national broadcast outlets, including the three major networks) cannot abide anyone who isn't a liberal. Pundits have had a field day with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and the so-called Bridgegate affair. The general response from analysts on the left has been, "Well, he says he didn't know about it and we are going to take him at his word, but if he did know ...
I have some of my most interesting conversations with community members in informal settings like the grocery store, the Farmers Market, convenience store gas pumps and church.

Great leaders understand that by empowering other people, they become more powerful. Jesus, Mahatma Ghandi, Mother Theresa and Martin Luther King Jr. are good examples of people who understood this philosophy. Unfortunately, very few politicians in Columbia understand this concept. Otherwise, our state would have a first-class education system, a functionally ethical government, outstanding health care for all people, and safe roads. Hopefully, one day, we will have the courage to elect more politicians who understand that by empowering the electorate, our state becomes a stronger democracy of engaged citizens.

When I was a pre-teen, I absolutely devoured every Nancy Drew mystery book I could check out of the Charleston County Library or borrow from a friend. Oh, the adventures Nancy took me on as she snooped out the trail of a mystery. Each little clue she found led to another and another and they all eventually solved the mystery. The exotic situations in which she became involved were fascinating. She always solved the mystery, through each one's twisting, turning plot. Clue by clue.
