Where Obama should listen to Rand Paul: legal pot

As the nation's capital prepares to open its first legal medicinal marijuana dispensary and Sen. Rand Paul's call for legalization basks in bipartisan praise, it's time for President Barack Obama to clear the air around his own passive-aggressive position on pot.

Books offer real, alternate histories

Two books recently transported me to the past, one real, the other not. Both featured late President Richard Nixon, one prominently, the other not so much. They provided me with food for thought … of where we have been, where we are now and where we could be.

The Last Chronicle

I believe this to be the last entry in my insipid but genuine "chronicles of a college freshman". At least for now. In a way, I wish I could jot down a brief survival guide of sorts for other parents preparing to travel a similar road. But regrettably, we know that's not how it works. It's not a chapter in a spicy novel we can rush through but a scene in a play that must be acted out. It must be lived and felt. The first year of college ushers in difficult and, at times, heart-rending change for ...

A monument to reconciliation

CAMDEN S.C. -- It isn't often that one gets to hear both the strains of "Dixie" and an African drum concert in the same public square. Nor, usually, are statue unveilings the riveting stuff of storytelling.

Keynesian economics and gridlock

WASHINGTON -- The item was too delicious to resist: New York Times columnist Paul Krugman, he of the don't-worry, be-happy approach to the federal deficit, had been forced to declare personal bankruptcy. Except, it wasn't true.

Four Months In

Marvelous things are happening in Camden and Kershaw County. Yes, sometimes, we take two steps forward, one step back, but as every airline pilot knows, if a strong headwind takes us off-course, we get back on track and head for our destination, which in this case is a happy, prosperous City.

Slow down you crazy child

A few weeks ago I shared with the community my frustration with the stoplights around town. Since then I have received lots of feedback from locals who share my sentiments as well. However, there is one particular email that has really stuck with me for the past couple of weeks. In this particular email, the sender agreed with my frustrations and feelings regarding being trapped within my vehicle while waiting for a change of color but he also shared something else: "maybe it's just divine intervention for us all to slow down and reflect on how wonderful life is."

Not quite on the high board yet

WASHINGTON -- Listening to the Supreme Court hear arguments in the same-sex marriage cases was like watching a novice diver inch to the edge of the high board for the first time.

‘Travels’ of a Historical Document

On June 9, 2012 at a Civil War show in Columbia, S.C., I browsed along from one dealer table to the next searching for Civil War relics in my fields of interest. As I examined the items on the table of the Broadfoot Publishing Company, with much excitement and anticipation I opened a folder labeled, "Immortal Six Hundred -- original manuscript." When I realized I was examining a Lieut. William E. Johnson Jr. 1864 manuscript list of the Immortal Six Hundred, goose bumps arose on my arms.

The civil right of marriage equality

Growing up the way I did, I couldn't help but to learn the fundamental truth that we are all human beings with the fundamental rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. I've lived in too many places, and been counted as a minority enough times, not to realize that it's always wrong -- always -- to believe that anyone's claims to those fundamental rights are inferior to anyone else's.

Of trains, convertibles and not making plans

Lost among the daily news hoopla of the Great Recession, the housing comeback, the stock market run and the decline of the euro has been a bit of economic news that most people would probably find surprising:
