It will come as no surprise to most Kershaw Countians that the so-called Washington "super committee" which is charged with coming up with a plan to rein in runaway deficits is not only failing to make progress but now has been witnessing back-and-forth sniping between its members. It's just the latest chapter in a rancorous debate between Republicans and Democrats in Washington, with the loser, of course, being the American taxpayer.
So here's what one doctor told women runners who wanted to compete in distance races back in the early 1960s:

Dear Annie: I have been married to "George" for more than 20 years. For most of this time, there has been tension (to put it mildly) between my husband and my mother. He rubs her the wrong way, she snipes at him, and he snipes back. I've had several conversations with them over the years, asking them to be more tolerant of each other, if only for my sake. That works for a while, but eventually, they return to their old ways.

On Oct. 1, for the first time in more than 20 years, the Truesdale/dell/del families met at Bethany Baptist Church for a reunion. They came, arms full of food, photographs, computers, and memories to share with each other.

Many had never known they had living relatives other than their immediate kin.
My grandmother -- Daddy's mother -- was sometimes called "crazy" by others who didn't quite understand her eccentric ways. Of course, in the South, we are proud of such a label for it means that we are interesting and worthy of being the center of coffee and cake conversation.
