No city is more inextricably linked to this country's quest for freedom than Boston. From an early age students learn about the Boston Tea Party, the Boston Massacre and all the other historic events that helped set the colonies on the road to freedom. So it was especially fitting Monday that the city showed that it's indeed "Boston Strong" by completing its famous marathon. Of course, the race came a year after bombers killed three and wounded hundreds during the running of this country's most storied 26.2-mile race.

It is hard to remember when Reid Buckley wasn't a part of my life, so prominent and life-altering a place he occupied the past 20 years or so. Not only was he a cherished friend but he also held the distinction of being the only person ever to fire me.

While I do fully agree with the literary force of genius that is Plath, if that had been my statement, I would have written it: "There must be quite a few things a hot bath or a long walk won't cure, but I don't know many of them."

Camden was at its finest last weekend when the Steeplechase Museum put on a very successful antique show bringing in dealers from seven states, buyers from as far away as Ohio and Alabama and visitors who stayed at our hotels, ate at our restaurants and supported what Camden has to offer. The antique show was held at the Rhame Arena that was transformed into a beautiful exhibition building. Everyone was impressed with what was done to a building that has been utterly neglected and is now is being cast aside for something newer that can't be used for events ...

It will come as no surprise to most Kershaw Countians that the so-called Washington "super committee" which is charged with coming up with a plan to rein in runaway deficits is not only failing to make progress but now has been witnessing back-and-forth sniping between its members. It's just the latest chapter in a rancorous debate between Republicans and Democrats in Washington, with the loser, of course, being the American taxpayer.
