Finding the unexpected

Times have changed. Recently, when I heard of a young lady being robbed on the campus of the University of South Carolina, I was not surprised. Since the time was early morning -- about 1 or 2 a.m. -- and she was walking alone, she had certainly not used care. Then I had to laugh because I, in the '80s, attended night classes there. When I parked the car after driving from Camden, the location was far away and often along ill lit paths. When I parked, it was early afternoon; when I left after classes, night had fallen. I, however ...

S.C. ranks near bottom again

South Carolinians shouldn't be surprised to see the state rank poorly in yet another survey. It seems the Palmetto State is forever being relegated to the bottom tier in all kinds of indicators. Some of them, of course, don't have much validity. But the latest one, in which only five states are ranked lower than South Carolina in susceptibility to political corruption, is particularly unnerving because it's one that could be avoided with a modicum of care from legislators.

C-I in step with mainstream media

As with much of the mainstream media, your edition March 9 is a poster child for what is wrong with the mainstream media and possibly a plausible explanation as to why printed media has fallen onto hard times. A previous editorial by Martin Cahn wherein he rather pompously pronounced that his opinion -- he is a journalist whatever that is -- is vastly superior to the great unwashed's opinion. A fair presumption would be those that are not "journalists."
