Who in the Wiki-Age is a Journalist?

A new Senate bill to protect journalists has stirred up a hornet's nest of criticism over an old nagging question: who in the age of WikiLeaks is a "journalist"?

Civil War-time fare

If you were a Carolina lady in the 1850s, you would likely have a copy of the latest and most fashionable cookbook of the times -- The Carolina Housewife. The little book was written by "A Lady of Charleston" and published in 1847. The "Lady" was Sarah Rutledge, daughter of Edward Rutledge, a signer of the Declaration of Independence. The Camden Archives and Museum has an 1851 edition of the book in our collection. In preparation for the new exhibit, "Camden in the Civil War: The Home Front," I pulled it for exhibit along with quotes from Harriet DuBose Kershaw Lang ...

The treachery of naps

Have you ever had one of those nights where you cannot, no matter how you try, fall asleep? It's the most frustrating feeling to be sleepy and to know that with every minute you stay awake you're getting closer to the hour you have to get up and that you are cheating yourself out of precious sleep minutes?

‘Under the Dome’s’ Big Jim

I've always been a physically small person. As I'm sure many of you can imagine, that led to being bullied quite a bit as a younger person. In fact, I'd dare say that it wasn't until my sophomore year of college that most of the folks around me matured enough not to engage in such behavior.

Invisible Involvement and “Backpack Dumps”

With the beginning of a new school year, I often get asked how parents can help students to be successful in school. Over the years, my thoughts on this topic have evolved quite a bit. As a result, I have come to be a big proponent of what I call "invisible involvement."

Gun Rights

The issue of second amendment gun rights will be a major talking point in next year's national elections, following the recall in Colorado of two state legislators who had played a prominent role in passing gun restrictions in that state. Two senators, both Democrats, lost their seats when Republicans rose up against the new laws. And the results have prompted Democrats in Colorado to step back and assess their policies for the future.

Old Obama would question new war plans

President Barack Obama surprised many by deciding to turn to Congress for approval before he fires missiles at Syria, but his decision makes sense. When proposing military action that almost nobody wants to wage, it is best to find someone with whom to share the blame.

Employees, volunteers play important role at KH

One of the things about being a healthcare CEO is that you become the very visible face of the organization. In many cases, the public believes you are closely involved with everything that happens within the walls of the organization. Unfortunately, that does a great disservice to the hundreds of employees and volunteers and the difference they make in the lives of people every day. CEOs provide vision, leadership and support of the organization's mission, but it's everyday employees who execute that mission.
