Bump in the night

So the other day I'm making coffee when I hear something weird. It's this other-worldly voice, not really moaning, but not really articulating anything, either. As I had enjoyed the better part of a large bottle of Malbec the night before, I dimly wondered if I was having some sort of mild DTs.

'The basics'

From time to time, especially when the budget and the costs of education are being discussed, a community member will inevitably ask me why our schools do not spend more time on "the basics" -- the three Rs of "reading, 'riting, and 'rithmetic." These conversations always seem to harken back to the "good old days," when things seemed simpler and in retrospect, seemed to work better and were cheaper. Unfortunately, the "good old days" are more myth than reality. Even with the greater perceived emphasis on the "three Rs" in the past, U.S. census data indicates that in 1960 just ...

S.C. won’t be the next Ferguson

It is front page news all across the state and indeed nationwide -- a white policeman shot an unarmed black man in an incident at a filling station in Columbia. A dashboard camera in the police car captured much of what happen.
