The awesome English language

The rules for correct grammar usage are many. They, however, are equaled to or exceeded by the exceptions. No one believes me when I tell them I never write without a dictionary and thesaurus by my side; after all, I taught English for many years. One student asked me, "When are we going to do something else except grammar?" I am not sure I consoled her when I replied, "We will soon study literature and composition." She sighed with relief until I said, "However, grammar plays a part in both of these." I should have mentioned it is also a ...

American Party

History hasn't been kind to third-party movements in this country, but that's not deterring two South Carolinians -- one with Democratic roots and the other with a Republican background -- from trying to launch the American Party, which they contend can be a viable alternative to the two majority parties. Jim Rex, who was superintendent of education in this state, and Oscar Loveless, a physician who once ran for governor, think voters need another option. In light of the gridlock in which our Congress has become mired, that's not a bad idea. The odds are long against the success ...

It's time for us to expand our mindsets about the political situation in Washington. In a recent New York Times article, Russ Douthat said that politics is hard business and failure is normal enough, but that sensible people, "Republicans included," should have seen that shut down fever would blow up in the Party's face. Why? Because they had no method in place to deal with what could arguably be seen as basically a worthy objective.
