Simon Baruch’s Reminiscences of a Confederate Surgeon

After the death of Dr. Yates Snowden, long time history professor at the University of South Carolina, his papers were placed in the South Caroliniana Library. After being accessioned, they were given a general description for the card catalog. Pamphlets and other publications were removed and given an individual card catalog description.

Supreme Court gets it wrong again

It seems like every year, I have to write a story about how the U.S. Supreme Court is continuing to make campaign finances worse and worse. In 2010, it was the court's Citizens United decision. In 2012, the court's refusal to even reconsider the Citizens United case. In 2013, I wrote about the arguments made in McCutcheon vs. Federal Election Commission (FEC).

Democrats acting desperately

WASHINGTON -- H.L. Mencken gets a workout in election years when voters are reminded by pundits of the curmudgeon's observation that no one ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American public.

Bring on the spring

In the spring a young man's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of … fishing! With apologies to poet Alfred Lord Tennyson, at this point in my life I think I'd rather feel a tug on my fishing line than on my heart strings. Cynical? No doubt, but at least I'm honest.

The road diet

Council and staff have as their primary goal economic development. We want greater prosperity for the business community. We are intent on creating jobs.

Why fake is sometimes OK

When it comes to tanning, fake is OK with me. Wait, let me clarify, fake in the sense of spray tan or self-tanners, not tanning bed fake. I think one realization I've come to over the years is that skin care is absolutely essential as I grow older. This includes moisturizing daily and always wearing sunscreen.

Fifty minus one and counting

In 362 days, I will be 50 years old. That means I am already three days into my 50th year of life. In other words, Friday was my 49th birthday.

Merging and purging

For years, I blamed it on those richly royal blue suede high heel pumps. The ones with the ridiculously tall, spiked heel and absurdly pointed toe. I was 22 when I bought them, 36 when I donated them to the Salvation Army.

Let’s fill up ‘The Cup’

Frosts and Freezes not over, oh my!

To say these past few months have been cold is an understatement and while my northern roots have relished getting my wool sweaters out of the cedar chest, our trees and other plants have not had the ability to bundle up for warmth. No matter how you slice it, our woody friends have been exposed to dramatically cold temperatures this winter and even though spring is officially here, we have yet to see how Mother Nature's wintery touch has affected (or may still affect) all things green.

Dershowitz & Starr: A matter of principle

WASHINGTON -- When it comes to tackling complicated legal issues, one would be hard-pressed to conjure a less likely partnership than Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz and Baylor University President Ken Starr.

The über-wealthy and their toys
