Casualties of partisanship

The cause of centrism in the U.S. Senate took another nosedive this week when Sen. Olympia Snow of Maine stunned everyone with her announcement that she wouldn't seek another term.

"I do find it frustrating … that an atmosphere of polarization and 'my way or the highway' ideologies has become pervasive in campaigns and in our governing institutions," Snowe declared.

State government is ‘atrocious’

I applaud S.C. Sens. Joel Lourie and Vincent Sheheen for having the wherewithal to speak out about our South Carolina government. It is atrocious. Not one layer of government knows what the other layer is doing and doesn't seem to care as long as they receive their paycheck!

Facilitating children's playtime and events

Recently, I had a couple of sweet granddaughters for a sleepover. It was long-anticipated and long overdue. They were so happy to see each other, one being six and the other seven.

Term limits

The concept of term limits became popular a number of years ago, but has since waned. Limits were enacted in many states across the country and in many of those, were repealed either through legal challenges or political considerations.
