All hands on deck

Among journalists, there are those stories that show you what you're made of. They challenge you, maybe even drive you crazy as you try to figure out just what the heck is going on. But they also teach you, not just about the craft of journalism, but about yourself.

A learning experience

Many teachers think they are the only ones offering education from their pinnacle of supremacy. I, however, know that this is not true. A wise educator learns much more from his pupils than they derive from him. Certainly, on occasion, my mouth has fallen open in delight, shock, or amazement from my assigned individuals.

Ethics and elections

A lot has happened in South Carolina since the State Integrity Investigation ranked our state among the most at risk for corruption. In March I wrote about this report, some efforts that had been made, and some bills that I had filed to improve our ethics laws. Here is an update.

Akin’s ‘legitimate’ pain

It always amuses me when conservatives, who rail relentlessly against "political correctness" when it comes from the left, turn against one of their own like Rep. Todd Akin for saying what he really means.

Obama vs. Romney: meanest campaign ever?

Is this the nastiest presidential campaign ever? That's a toughie. Past campaigns have set the bar so low that, to quote a senior advisor to Mitt Romney, "I don't think a world champion limbo dancer could get any lower."
