The White House mess

WASHINGTON -- Let's recap: if you like your insurance policy, you can keep it. No, wait. If you liked your policy, it was probably worthless anyway. Scratch that. If your junk policy was canceled and you still want it, you can keep it. Er, get it back.

‘Flexibility,’ or throwing the baby out with the bath water?

I've been doing this work for a long time, almost 39 years. I've seen probably every educational fad, movement, silver bullet, innovation, reform, program and change you can think of, and then some. The flavor of the month in South Carolina is elimination of minimum standards and quality control in the name of "flexibility." This "reform" comes up every so often as the grand solution to solve all of our problems. On the surface, it's not a bad concept. But because it's rarely done with some level of measure or common sense, it usually falls on ...

Payments deferred

Many of the most important occupations receive the smallest salaries. For example, policemen are notoriously underpaid, as are firefighters. Teachers, entrusted with children, the most valuable items for both the parents and the world, receive the least for the most. I remember my first salary to be $2,785 a year! In spite of the fact that I was certainly better looking, more energetic, idealistic and gullible enough to think all students wanted an education and bringing an "A" diploma and teaching certification, the payment was small in terms of money. However, little did I expect or anticipate that the ...

Obamacare’s gift to the GOP

WASHINGTON -- In spite of everything -- the GOP's internal scrimmages, the government shutdown, the party's transparent attempts to derail Obamacare -- Republicans keep getting second chances.

Celebrity blues

One of my friends was griping to me recently about "the problem with my generation." He's slightly older than me and enjoys lecturing me every now and again on the troubles of the youth of America today. He said the problem with my generation is that we believe everything we see on YouTube.

A sorry state of affairs

WASHINGTON -- President Obama is no lip-biting, tear-streaking, chin-trembling apologist.

Fixing our elections

In many places in South Carolina, we just finished with our local elections. And, as usual, we are now hearing folks talking about what's wrong with our election system.

Legality and laughter

Contrary to the opinion of most people, schools have always had to serve all types of people. In fact, I remember a lawyer and legislator who was appalled when I suggested that drivers' licenses be taken from young people who broke the law instead of having them pick up trash when their parents could not or, wisely, would not pay their fines.

A museum I’d want to be a part of

I may just have to look for part-time living accommodations back up in the Washington, D.C., area. Why in the world -- or, more precisely, why in the whole universe -- would I want to subject myself to living up there, even part-time?
