Justice denied

"I am innocent," Troy Davis declared moments before he was to be executed for the killing of a security officer in Savannah, Ga., in 1991. How many times have we heard these words? Most of the inmates in jails and prisons across America would confess their innocence of a crime. And some may actually be. But what makes Troy Davis' claim different? Is it because his case has drawn national and international attention? Is it because his cause has the support of Pope Benedict XVI, former president of the United States Jimmy Carter, the president of the NAACP, Benjamin Jealous ...

Let’s seize this golden opportunity

My wife and I moved here four years ago. I moved back home, and in her words, she moved home for the very first time. We noticed others doing the same, both then and still now. Just yesterday I received a call from a classmate who had finally landed a job close enough to allow him to live in Camden. I've often pondered this anomaly. What is it that so often brings people back? Many reasons come to mind: the people, the incredible sense of community, the horse races, the beautiful parks, the "walkable" streets, and the safety provided ...

Retro TV revisits birth of ‘culture war’

Do AMC's "Mad Men," ABC's "Pan Am," NBC's "The Playboy Club" and BBC America's "The Hour" exploit society's barely suppressed appetite for a more sexist, racist and conservative era? Fear not. The underlying message in these depictions of the bad old days is clear: We should be better than that now, even when we aren't.

Why a Y now?

I, like many others, have listened, watched and read about this YMCA/sports complex. It all started with a real estate listing on 1/7/2011, a contract on 2/7/2011 and a closing date later in March. Wow! That was a fast real estate transaction. Discontent and suspicions started then and have continued. Shortly after the closing, there was talk of a possible YMCA partnering with Columbia. Now I am not here to oppose a Y. My children learned to swim at the Y, my husband was president of the board and was even instrumental in obtaining the ...
