Thought for tomorrow

When I was a younger man, I believed that progress was inevitable -- that the world would be better tomorrow and better still the day after. The thunder of war, the stench of concentration camps, the mushroom cloud of the atomic bomb are, however, not conducive to optimism. All our tomorrows for years to come will be clouded by the threat of a terrible holocaust.

Buck up for safety

Everyone have a pleasant Thanksgiving and safe travels? No underwear bombers? Good, glad to hear it. Now, say your thanks to the sleepless Transportation Security Administration administrator John Pistole and his agency.

The new heresy

NEW YORK -- In a political culture where moderation is the new heresy, centrism is fast becoming the new black.

Glad I'm not flying for the holidays

To fly or not to fly, that is the question.

Attention, Deficit Disorder

Battle lines are being drawn as the White House and Congress prepare for a big showdown in the spring over a question that troubles a lot of households these days: how to manage the nation's credit card.

'Modern Bride'

WASHINGTON -- I've been wallowing in exit polls and poring over debt- reduction plans, so perhaps you'll forgive a brief walk on the low-brow side.

Season of giving means many things

With Thanksgiving Day only hours behind us -- which I'm guessing is the equivalent of a decade in "shopping years" -- the Christmas holiday season is officially underway.

Maybe elites can make marriage cool again

It's hard to figure us Yanks out, my British friends say. We still go simply gaga over royal weddings like the upcoming nuptials of Prince William and Kate Middleton. Yet we historically rejected royalty -- and increasingly we're even rejecting marriage.

These things for which I'm thankful

During this holiday season, I'm thankful for:

In no particular order ... Gaga, coffee, Brooks

Yeah, yeah, I know it doesn't take too much mental capacity to conjure up what you're thankful for and put it down on paper. But, frankly, I don't care if it's a cop-out column. Here's my 2010 Thank List, in no order at all:

A scan too far

NEW YORK -- In the accelerating debate about airport pat-downs that feel like a clumsy third date and body scans that border on Peeping Tom shows, it's hard to find a sane place to land.

Now more than ever ... shop locally

As the Christmas shopping season approaches, we should all be reminded of just how important shopping at home really is. Studies show that money spent at independently owned local businesses stays in a community, multiplying as it circulates.

The only sure cure for 'Obamacare'

Ask any 10 voters what motivated them to go to the polls, and you'll probably get 10 different answers. Taxes, unemployment, government spending -- Americans had a lot on their minds as they approached the ballot box.

Driving therapy

Music has the power to influence. It has the power to evoke deep thoughts, which ultimately lead to a flow of emotions and feelings. Driving paired with music seems to increase that flow of emotions. Maybe it is the sometimes calm rhythmic movement that the steady turn of the wheels creates that appeal to the mind and body. I make a 45 to 50 minute drive to and from work five days a week, so I get plenty of time to daydream, think and devise plans of action for any situation that is heavy on my mind. No one is ...

More on S.C. snakes

Though the calendar has now been flipped to the month of September and autumn is right around the corner, here in South Carolina it is still very much summer according to the thermometer. Days are getting shorter, but lower temperatures don't usually make it to South Carolina to signal the end of summer until well into October. Birds have begun their annual migrations south, but the heat and humidity that still lingers continues to keep snakes very active. Being exothermic, or cold-blooded as I was taught in elementary school, snakes take environmental warmth and warm themselves to activate processes ...

Mark Sanford’s ongoing saga with himself

WASHINGTON -- As a South Carolinian, it befalls me to examine the peculiarities afflicting our former governor and now-congressman Mark Sanford, who, contrary to decorum and taste, continues to demand attention.

What the president said

Last week, I called for going after ISIL (or ISIS or IS, the Islamic State as it wants to call itself now), in full force. Admittedly, I wasn't very specific about that. Some may have thought I meant "boots on the ground," as opposed to only the air strikes the U.S. has already participated in.

Marilyn’s place:

Around this time of year I get the hankering to head for the hills -- the North Carolina mountains, actually -- and this year the itch is coming on pretty heavily.

‘Your hometown newspaper’

It's been said, with some degree of accuracy, the newspaper business is dying. At the Chronicle-Independent we're inclined to disagree with that, at least when it comes to this paper, and I'll tell you why. Let me assure you, it's not because it's where we work and where our paychecks come from, although we do honestly appreciate it. It's because we simply are the only source our readers have for the news that really matters to them on a local, personal level.
