Fifty years ago this week, then Federal Communications Chairman Newton Minow famously skewered the nation's daily television programming as "a vast wasteland." Today it is still largely a wasteland, in my view, because that's mostly what people want.

What bin Laden, Geronimo shared in common

Native American leaders are upset that Geronimo's name was used as code for Osama bin Laden. I respect their concern, but I don't think this particular reference is the insult that tribal leaders think it is.

bin Laden

A couple weeks after Navy commandoes killed al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden, Kershaw County residents are no doubt still celebrating with their countrymen his demise. Americans are by nature a compassionate people and not attuned to celebrating death; in this instance, it is justified in every way and a cause for joy, for bin Laden will endure in infamy as one of the most cold-hearted murderers the world has ever known.

Qualifications are basis for governor's appointments

I was very disappointed in your recent Noted and passed comments criticizing Gov. Haley for being insensitive in not making appointments to minorities in the proportions that you felt appropriate. I would have thought that you, as I, would have wanted her to choose the best available for the job regardless of the category into which they fell. Whether she did or not, only time will tell.

Medical marijuana

Both Democrats and Republicans in South Carolina will have advisory questions on their June primary ballots -- votes that will not be binding but are intended simply to provide some feeling for what Palmetto State residents are thinking about particular issues. As you would guess, such questions often revolve around issues particularly important to one party or another, and they're sometimes done to help provide leverage for the parties to push certain projects.

Gullible and guilty

Those of us who jump for joy when we hear that Governor Haley is deeply concerned about education and is planning to dedicate $160 million in new spending for education might consider, as we bow heads in hope and tenuous gratitude, that such concern on her part is coming awfully late but just in time for her possible re-election. Better late than never? Perhaps! But better earlier, for sure. The S.C. education budget has been reduced for the last three years by more than the proposed budget raises -- $110 million in her first year and $140 million stimulus money ...
