Britain's tabloid scandal sounds familiar

Sometimes justice is hard to take

As much as I tried to avoid being drawn in by the reality-TV drama known as the Casey Anthony trial, I was jerked alert by its conclusion, the most controversial murder acquittal since that of O.J. Simpson.

Debt talks a case of politics, not principle

Most people are taught early on that they will not always get what they want in life. It's a lesson gained through personal experience, taught in schools, preached in churches and even the title of one of my favorite songs by the Rolling Stones," You Can't Always Get What You Want."

An illusory 'peace dividend'

For most of us, it's the season of sun, sand and backyard barbecues. But the U.S. Conference of Mayors seems to think it's Christmas.

The just-no-vote crowd

Washington -- A debt crisis is a terrible thing to waste in a presidential election season, and Democrats and Republicans alike are responding on cue.

Veto session reveals differences

A response -- Author Chris Crutcher

I've been informed that my book, "Angry Management," has been removed from your summer reading list because a concerned parent, Douglas Berry, brought the "number of expletives" in the text to the attention of your district's Director of Communications.

Some scandals won't sit still

It's hard for a social commentator to keep up with all of the legal, moral and political lessons offered up by the still-unfolding Dominique Strauss-Kahn sex mess. But the most important is this: Don't rush to judgment.

Obama's uncommon scold

An MSNBC commentator is in the doghouse over a mildly obscene on-air criticism of President Barack Obama. Fair enough. But, to me his language was less obscene than his suggestion that Obama was getting a too uppity with GOP budget negotiators.

Justice for Caylee in mother's hands now

I'm not God, so there's no way I can sit here and unequivocally say that I know Casey Anthony murdered her 2-year-old daughter back in 2008. No one really knows that, aside from Casey Anthony, little Caylee Anthony and God.

Colbert proves campaign laws a joke

Comedian and S.C. native Stephen Colbert has gained national fame from his unique brand of political humor on his Comedy Central TV show "The Colbert Report." His satirist style, however, sometimes crosses over from behind the television screen to the realities of American politics. One of Colbert's most notable forays into politics came in 2008 after he decided to run for president, but only in the S.C. primary. Colbert's intentions were to half-jokingly run as a "favorite son" of the state on both the Republican and Democratic platforms, but he eventually dropped out of the race.

Phillips: A Merry Christmas to all

I am a big believer in everyone's right to think and feel however they choose to. It's really what makes us all American and, to make it even broader, it's what makes us all human. If I don't happen to agree with your point of view, I still respect your right to have that point of view.

Camden Archives and Museum celebrates its centennial

One hundred years ago, in 1915, 1314 Broad St. was a construction site. Excavators and bricklayers, carpenters and heating contractors were busy at their task of building Camden's first city library. It had been an arduous journey getting to that point. That journey began in 1914, as best we can reckon, at a lecture to the Kershaw County Teachers Institute. In all of the factors leading up to the acquisition and completion of the Camden Public Library there is one constant: Sarah "Sadie" Kennedy Von Tresckow.

Owens: Year in review

To say that 2014 has had its ups and downs would be an understatement. Honestly, I don't know what words or phrases I would use to describe how my 2014 played out. It wasn't the worst year ever, but it definitely wasn't the greatest.

The loss of parents and their wisdom

There are few who cannot say truthfully that they miss their parents after death has laid claim to those loved ones. The parents who taught us, scolded us and, at times, annoyed us are never forgotten, never put away on a shelf to be remembered no more.
