From Russia with envy

NEW YORK -- It is bracing, not to mention annoying, laughable and obnoxious, to hear a White House press secretary lectured by a Russian journalist about the parameters of free expression American-style.

Words that don't heal

WASHINGTON -- Sarah Palin feels victimized by critics who accuse her of helping create an angry political climate that led to the Tucson shootings, and she has a point. She chose a truly unfortunate way to make it, using the phrase "blood libel."

Taking a look back

I became somewhat nostalgic two weekends back. No, I wasn't flipping through photos of past loves or my travels in Europe. Or hitting up the Five Points bars stockpiled with sorority gals.

Tucson rampage wasn't about politics

The shooting in Tucson, Ariz., that killed six people, including a federal judge, and put many in the hospital, including U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, is a tragedy.

What's so bad about civility?

Just as it sometimes takes a scandal to engage Americans in a national conversation about sex, race or some other touchy topic, it sadly has taken a deranged gunman to launch us into a national argument about civility.

Proposed legislation impacting K-12 education

The beginning of a new year brings the start of many activities, including the opening of the 2011 session of the South Carolina General Assembly. Obviously, our legislators face more than even the usual level of challenges because of the $1 billion budget shortfall and the redrawing of legislative districts that will be done as a result of the 2010 census. As part of their deliberations, legislators will tackle a variety of issues related to K-12 education. I had an interesting time over the holidays reading the bills that were prefiled in December. Following are some proposed laws impacting K-12 ...

Westerns still have their fans

I'm not much of a movie-goer -- maybe one a year, or two at the most.

Cooperation

My first Saturday night in office started at 8:00PM in the training room at the Sheriff's Office. I joined Sheriff's Deputies, Camden Police Officers, a couple of 16-year-old minors and two of my captains for a briefing by a Sheriff's Office investigator. He briefed everyone on our operations for the night. We were going to target stores in Kershaw County that could legally sell beer just to see if they would sell to these minors who were working "undercover" for us. Later that night SLED agents would join us as we also targeted Kershaw County bars ...

Huck Finn stirs trouble again

Making good on a campaign promise, the Republican-dominated 112th House of Representatives opened with a reading of the Constitution. But they copped out of reading some of the most thought-provoking parts.

Better read than dead?

NEW YORK -- While sorting through the perennial lip-pursing tempest about a certain word in Mark Twain's "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" -- the "N-word," as we now say it -- I turned for inspiration to the master himself.

New year, new budget

Something I didn't do very well in 2010 was managing my family's personal finances.

Boomers, embrace your inner grouch

We baby boomers begin to turn 65 this year, which gives us a new excuse to be grumpy.

A scorned South Carolina hero

April 11, 2014 was a very important day in the history of South Carolina. Few people noticed that anything much happened – but I would argue that this was the day we as a state did two very important things.

The Colbert Report

WASHINGTON -- In selecting Stephen Colbert to replace David Letterman as host of the "Late Show," CBS has waged war on America's heartland -- or so proclaims that Palm Beach font of heartland mirth, Rush Limbaugh.

Diamonds are the ‘better gang’ now

Americans love their sports. We especially love baseball, basketball, football and hockey. We love the Super Bowl, March Madness, the Stanley Cup and World Series.

Focusing on finding the best healthcare outcomes

Recently, I attended the Congress on Healthcare Leadership presented by the American College of Healthcare Executives, and I was most impressed by one presentation: Building the New Healthcare Delivery System. In particular, I was struck by the fact that healthcare executives from across the country were focused almost exclusively on this new world of healthcare and its impact on how the organizations they lead are designed.

Beautiful in a different way

She was not a pretty woman in the days of her youth. Her lips were too thin, her forehead too high and her eyes so round that they seemed to bulge into the lens of the glasses she wore.

‘NEGU’

Life requires courage. Courage doesn't always roar like a lion. Sometimes courage is a quiet voice, unassuming in all its resilience and fortitude, the gentle giant among us, the self-effacing titan in our presence. Remember the line, or was it a show on television -- "kids say the darndest things?" For the moment, I'm going to change it to say, "Kids do insanely courageous things." I always find it an amazing occurrence when certain people or groups of people are put in our paths. They dissect our "straight" lines for reasons often unknown to us. Most of us just ...

Time again to grab from the mailbag

If you're glad spring is here and you're looking back on this winter as one of the worst ever, you're right. But if you want a few weather statistics that are really cruel, try these on for size:

The bigger they are…

I have been watching with great interest this week the news reports on the trial of former Chesterfield County Sheriff Sam Parker. As many of you know, I came here from Pageland in Chesterfield County in late December and when I first went to work there in early 2011, Parker was the sheriff. So, I knew Parker well through my work.

Southern charm

WASHINGTON -- After writing close to 3,000 columns, I've learned that people sometimes read what they're looking for, often as a result of a headline, rather than what I wrote.
