Making the moral case

Conservatives, beware: you can have reams of information, piles of studies and folders of charts at your fingertips. And you can still lose the debate.

Look for surprise winner at the Open

The phrase "expect the unexpected" should really become the new slogan for the PGA Tour. Fifteen different players have come home with victories in the last 15 major championships with nine of those being crowned major winners for the first time.

Local tokens

Tokens were small cardboard, brass, copper or aluminum items, usually in the shape of coins, which were issued by private enterprise ventures such as textile mills, merchants, etc. These items took the place of coins and were redeemable at the issuing entity. A study of these items reveals much about the history of S.C. and its counties.

On facts, lies and Sarah Palin

"The America I know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with Down Syndrome will have to stand in front of Obama's 'death panel' so his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of their 'level of productivity in society,' whether they are worthy of health care." --Sarah Palin, Aug. 7, 2009

The Citizens United and immigration decisions

As Independence Day approaches, I'm disheartened by two recent Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) decisions. Both were split decisions on how certain laws will be applied. (I'll save Thursday's healthcare decision another time.)

Helping Mr. Romney with his NAACP speech

Dear Mitt Romney: I was pleased to hear that you have accepted an invitation to speak in July before the 103rd convention of the NAACP in Houston. In anticipation of that event, I have taken the liberty of writing a speech for you. It's only a beginning, space limitations being what they are, but it should get you off to a solid start and you can take it from there. So, here it is:

The immigration question

Illegal immigration is a tricky topic. The Supreme Court ruled three of four parts of Arizona's controversial immigration law unconstitutional Monday. States with similar immigration laws, such as Alabama, know now what will and will not be allowed in the quest to enforce stricter immigration policies.

No more partying until dawn

"Early to bed and early to rise," said Benjamin Franklin, "makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise."

The union bailout

We all know how the Obama administration likes to portray the auto bailout: a generous infusion of money enabled the government to save General Motors and Chrysler. Jobs that would otherwise have disappeared were rescued by this taxpayer-funded largesse. It was expensive, but we had no choice.

The hitman on the mound

If Roger Clemens was great at throwing a fastball, he was even better at exuding smug masculinity … well, except maybe for those frosted tips that he sports.

Horse sense

WASHINGTON -- The punch line is at least as old as the eldest baby boomer: "I didn't get a pony."

Washday blues

Dirty clothes -- the constant, consistent chore -- is still one of the most odious banes for women. Jingles for commercial tout the truth that "mama keeps the house clean…," but what the woman must face every day is soiled linen! Most men's use of the same temperature for everything and their employment of the "smell test" – if it doesn't smell too bad, wear it again -- may explain the female's acceptance of the laundry chore. No matter the cause, the modern woman has no idea how different keeping presentable clothing was in earlier days.

The essentiality of journalism

In 2005 when their city drowned, the staff of the New Orleans Times-Picayune stayed in it longer than common sense and simple prudence would dictate. People who had lost homes, loved ones, and their city itself concentrated on gathering the news and putting it out. They finally left huddled in newspaper delivery trucks, water up to the headlights, decamping to Baton Rouge, 75 miles away, where they went right back to reporting the news.

Down to the wire

Often as summer officially begins, the General Assembly is wrapping up its business for the year. However, when legislators returned to Columbia on June 19 there were several important issues left to be addressed. During the week, progress was made on one major issue, another major issue died, and one still remains to be resolved.

Camden is the right place to be

At various points since joining the C-I, people have asked me whether I'd ever be interested in working for a larger newspaper or for a paper in a larger market.
