A needle in a 60-year-old haystack

For many years on an almost daily basis I have visited the South Caroliniana Library to do research. A few months ago a library staff member inquired, "All right, Mr. Teal, what are you researching today?" I responded, "I'm looking for a 'needle in a haystack.'" That literally was true since I planned to scan four years of a newspaper to search for a single fact. Since that time the staff's standard question to me is, "which haystack do you want to examine today?"

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.
