The burden of entitlement

These figures are staggering:

Remember

The men sat directly across from each other in the small bay of the dual prop aircraft over eastern Afghanistan, the only sound, the drone of the propellers, the only light, the red filtered lenses often used at night. They were all Middle Eastern, all the same build, all wore similar clothing. Other than these similarities, the differences were stark. Three of the men wore black hoods, completely covering their heads. They could not see Khalil although he was a mere three to four feet across from them. They were strapped to the inside wall of the plane and could ...

Is a college degree worth it?

Newsweek's cover issue poses the question on many American's minds: is a college degree worth the investment?

Both parties go to extremes

CHARLOTTE -- At a time when the two parties usually reach out to grab every swing voter they can woo, this year's conventions were unusually obsessed with firing up the base -- the loyal voters in each party who are most likely to show up on Election Day.

Summer performance seals Serena’s supremacy

Oh, what a difference a year makes. The last time tennis fans saw Serena Williams in the U.S. Open final, she was having an emotional tirade at the expense of a chair umpire. Now, 12 months later, she's the queen of New York, fighting her way back from a disastrous second set in Sunday's championship to nab her 15th grand slam title.

The drawbacks of being young

When people ask me if I would not like to be young again --- specifically to be a teenager, I am sure they have forgotten the age. Also, when they ask me how I tolerated teaching that age, I know they are mistaken. One person even told me what a waste of time my occupation had been! Being a teenager is one of the most difficult yet rewarding times of a person's life. The effort to become independent is so hard. When my mother became annoyed when anyone called me "pretty" and coupled it with the compliment about her grandchild ...

Michelle's valentine to men

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- There's no point trying to find something wrong with Michelle Obama's speech to the Democratic National Convention. It was perfection.

Better off today? Don’t ask

(This column was released for publication prior to President Barack Obama's speech Thursday night at the Democratic National Convention .)

Core measures ensure quality patient care

Our patients pay KershawHealth an enormous compliment every time they entrust us with their care. Why? Because they expect they will receive excellent clinical care here, no matter what their need – and we work hard every day to ensure they do.

A stone, a leaf, an empty chair

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Much ponderous, chin-stroking analysis has followed the Republican National Convention's un-highlight -- the 10-minute monologue by the erstwhile Dirty Harry/Blondie/Rowdy Yates when Clint Eastwood conversed with an empty chair.

The two wives’ speeches

I'm going to leave comparisons between President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney's acceptance speeches to the big gun pundits. Instead, I believe this was the year of the wives when it came to the Democratic and Republican conventions: Michelle Obama and Ann Romney.

Loss

Loss is a difficult part of life. It's connected to us like our skin. It's unavoidable; it's constant; it's never mistaken in the hearts that feel it. And just as skin reveals time passed, loss leaves a mark on our strength and shakes our very core. It follows no schedule. Loss has neither good nor bad timing, as we are unable to make that judgment. It can be swift and random; it can be slow and methodical. It comes in many forms. Loss can be as impalpable as a dream not reached or as tangible as ...

The investigation in the reporting

Kershaw County Sheriff Jim Matthews offered me an investigator position at the Kershaw County Sheriff's Office last week.

Team Romney’s war against facts

TAMPA -- It's hard to tell who had a looser grip on reality as the Republican National Convention wrapped up -- Clint Eastwood or Mitt Romney's spin doctors.

Rarely a winner

Entering contests has never been something I liked to consider. I know only too well my limitations. My mother, for example, would often look at me, shake her head, and say, "I don't know what I am going to do if you don't keep growing!" I had often thought the same thing and needed no reminder. My older brother spent a good deal of his time instructing me in my homeliness and stupidity. Not having the traits of beauty or family connections, I grew up well aware of my drawbacks and too wise to draw attention to myself ...
