What is legitimate rape, Mr. Akin?

Rep. Todd Akin made some frankly repulsive comments this week about rape and the female body. The U.S. Senate contender responded with the following after he was asked about his ideas on abortion on a Missouri TV station:

Moment of Nature -- Aug. 24, 2012

This job affords me the luxury of being outside, which I love. During these past two years, I've had the opportunity to observe and capture many moments of nature up close as I prune young trees, perform tree exams and/or water our newly planted trees. The Chronicle-Independent has graciously allowed me to begin sharing my various nature experiences and knowledge of trees with you. It is my hope that your knowledge be enriched by the many wonders right here in our fair city.

All roads lead to Rome

"Under a democratical government, the citizens exercise the powers of sovereignty; and those powers will be first abased, and afterwards lost, if they are committed to an unwieldy multitude."

Not in the rule book

College classes endeavor to give aspiring teachers guides to help them prepare for the classroom. Such instructions are helpful, but they do not address the unusual behavior of people. Age does not necessarily matter, unless you consider teenagers and adults have more experience.

The 24-7 school district

I've been doing this work for a pretty long time. The coming school year will be my 38th, which probably qualifies me for "dinosaur status." A lot has changed in education since I walked into my first classroom in 1975. One of the most significant areas of change has been the way in which schools and school districts interact and communicate with families and the general public.

Food-stamp folly

Do you know what Maryland gives its welfare recipients so they can access cash and food benefits? An "Independence Card."

Paul Ryan's magical thinking

Among other "awesome news" about Paul Ryan, as my son would call it, we have learned that Mitt Romney's running mate was voted prom king and "biggest brown noser" by his high school classmates. Obviously, he was destined for success in politics.

Baron of the Piney Woods a facinating Camden native

It all began with a letter penned in 1953. By then the writer was 70 years old and he was answering an inquiry from Judge Allison P. DuBose of Camden. The letter from Inman F. Eldredge (1883-1963) was in the Camden Archives and Museum's vertical file on the Hobkirk Inn. I was working on the Camden Gardens exhibit and the Hobkirk Inn was one of the gardens in the exhibit -- so I "found" Inman on the way to looking for other things. His father and mother owned and operated the Hobkirk Inn during the heyday of the "Winter Colony ...

Romney’s ‘welfare queen’

Boring white-guy derangement syndrome

WASHINGTON -- One is hard-pressed to top silliness this political season but a strong contender would be recent speculation about Mitt Romney's likely running mate and the benighted "boring white guy (BWG)."

Teenage pranks

The news recently carried the information that some schools in Kershaw County would be delayed by two hours. The reason was vandalism of school buses. I am certain many individuals self-righteously thought or said, "We would never have done such a thing." Remembering just a few activities might give new insight.

Among contenders, Ryan made most sense

Mitt Romney's selection of Paul Ryan as his running mate could mean the White House will have its first VP from the U.S. House of Representatives in 80 years. In fact, only four sitting members of the House have even been on a Democratic or Republican ticket since 1900.

Onward Christian ‘Teavangelicals’
