My Brain on NASCAR - June 14, 2016

This week I'd like to say a few words about a guy no one has ever referred to -- in my presence, anyway -- as their favorite driver. No one has ever spent half an hour gushing to me about his charitable endeavors, which for the record supports health care, education, career training and rehabilitation. No one has bored me by rehashing the hilarity of his sitcom cameo appearances (which never happened). A lot of words fly around in reference to this guy, but very few of them are positive.

Joseph: I think I can, I think I can

Are we willing to accept what we can't change in our lives? Or, in certain circumstances, is it we assume we can't change something therefore we stop trying? Perhaps somewhere in the space between believing we can't and thinking we can't is the place we know we can. What would we be willing to do or how far would we be willing to go if we knew or believed we could change the outcome?

Matthews: Public safety in Kershaw County is at risk

Last month, a Cassatt couple woke up to a man standing over them with a sawed-off shotgun. He robbed them before fleeing. Days earlier he stuck his sawed-off shotgun in the face of a female clerk at an east Camden convenience store and robbed her. In April, he forced his way into a Camden home where he made a woman, with her kids, drive him to an ATM to get money. He threatened to shoot one of her children if she refused.

Cahn: We’ve always been a great nation

I write this not so much in repudiation of Kathleen Parker's column today -- she makes a number of excellent points, some of which I've made in the past, actually -- but more of an answer to her unspoken question: Why don't we act like we're a great nation anymore?"
