Saying goodbye to a friend

I've used my column to express various opinions, ideas and experiences I've had. I've used it as a way to make others smile or laugh and a way to share my passion for various aspects of life. Today, I use it in a more somber way, to remember the life of a friend who was recently lost.

We in S.C. are generous -- aren’t we?

We in South Carolina like to think of ourselves as caring and generous people -- willing to give our time and money to help our fellow man. This is how we see ourselves.

State chamber’s on the wrong side of almost everything

What's the difference between the terms "pro-free market" and "pro-business?" The former refers to policies that limit or remove government interference in economic activity: low taxes, fewer regulations, the absence of government subsidies, etc. The term "pro-business," by contrast, can mean almost anything. For the state Chamber of Commerce -- as well as a number of local chambers -- it usually means more government spending; government interference in education and healthcare; and wealth redistributions from taxpayers to favored businesses.

I dream of an airport museum

Recently, I took my sons on what we called the Cahn All-Boys 2014 Spring Break to see my father in Upper Marlboro, Md., about 30 minutes from downtown Washington, D.C.

Men of war

We had a funeral at church the other day which was not unusual. Rodney laid his work aside and came to direct the choir. That, too, was not unusual. I sang in the choir. Now that was very unusual.

Butterflies are free

As I have written here at least once before, only to be proven wrong, Spring is finally here. I really hope I am right this time, but I guess we're never completely immune in April to a cold front coming through that would bring a rainy day or two and then the drop in temperature that always follows. But, let's keep the optimism up and say, with faith, that Spring really is here to stay.

Sticking up for the Pine tree

Nothing quite marks spring here in South Carolina like the blooming of daffodils and dogwoods, the fluttering of robins and the release of the pine pollen. Each spring as I walk my dog through the woods during the height of pine pollen release, my footsteps stir the airy spores and coat my shoes. Is it annoying? You betcha. But you know this is the natural order of things and one of Mother Nature's most basic processes, reproduction.
