Crisis of faith in government

WASHINGTON -- It is reassuring that in the midst of so much government dysfunction, the IRS has resolved the question of when and whether to tax tanning beds under the Affordable Care Act. Do not be concerned about that giddiness you feel. You are not having a nervous breakdown but are suffering a symptom commonly associated with recognition that the absurd has become the accepted norm -- and that you are, in fact, alone. Indeed, the IRS' tanning ruling comes in the nick of time. Amid incessantly breaking news -- NSA surveillance, IRS political targeting, DOJ seizing, and CIA shrugging -- Americans were beginning ...

A Father's Day submission

As a Kershaw County teacher for twenty-seven years, I'm not sure I have ever properly thanked my very first teacher -- my father, Dave Spradley -- or told him how great of an impact he has had on my life and on my career. The most important lessons about literacy and education, I learned from him. Whether it was sitting on the couch, snuggled against him as he read aloud to me, or laughing at the silly poetry he recited, I remember how warm and comfortable being immersed in language and literature felt as a young child. I fell in love ...
