An old narrative that never dies

Hollywood's version of Harper Lee's brilliant novel "To Kill a Mockingbird" turns 50 this year, which offers President Barack Obama a rare opportunity. For once, he can venture, however cautiously, near the touchy topics of race and justice without risking too much of a political backlash.

Sad, but true, but changing

Earlier this week I said to my co-workers, "I don't know how people stay married for so long; I get tired of people after a few months." They laughed, I laughed; it's sad, but true.

Sensibilities of Griffin, Luck should ensure future success

"A bust; talented but extremely disappointing; annually and incredibly overweight" -- those aren't the words you want to hear when you've just paid a guy nearly $40 million to be your new quarterback.

The quirky English language

English varies greatly from state to state and location to location. It varies when talking with friends or when speaking before an audience. Some of it is almost unintelligible for the novice, such as Gullah. The Southern drawl differs from the Yankee vernacular. Rarely does the person speaking recognize the difference for himself. For example, the Australians told me how charming my accent was. When I returned the compliment, some other tourists from the north said, "You really told them off, having no idea I could have said the same to them. When traveling, I have been mistaken for English ...

The judicial activism wars

WASHINGTON -- Last week I chided President Obama for his remarks on the Supreme Court and the role of "unelected" judges. The president, wisely, has since chosen to clarify his statement, and express his (correct) view -- that courts should be hesitant to overturn acts of Congress -- in a much more appropriate way. Now there's an example of problematic behavior coming from the judicial branch, with a federal appeals court going out of its way to pick a fight with the president. Talk about judicial activism -- this is a judicial temper tantrum.

Life lessons from sad lotto winners

Feeling blue about losing $656 million Mega Millions jackpot lottery? Cheer up. Behind the lottery frenzy and hoopla, I've seen enough miserable winners over the years to conclude this: If you're not prepared to handle the pitfalls that follow a sudden windfall, you're probably better off without it.

The take-way from offender story

Today, we're publishing the second half of my two-part in-depth look at how the Kershaw County Sheriff's Office (KCSO) manages our county's portion of the South Carolina sex offender registry. I have to start by thanking Beverly Brevard for talking to me about the process.

The planes that didn’t crash

Most of us are familiar with the antiquated adage of "no news is good news" or its cohort, "bad news travels fast." With the former, the absence of information to the contrary justifies continued optimism. Bad news is usually associated with more urgent matters; matters we are inclined to transfer more quickly to one another. Good news is boring, right? News is defined one way as "matter that is newsworthy." Newsworthy is defined as "interesting enough to the general public to warrant reporting." If we really think about it, good news rarely fits the definition of "news" because it is ...

Obamacare faces the Supremes

Obamacare faced a tough crowd at the Supreme Court. But those tough, probing questions from Justice Anthony Kennedy, the court's key swing voter, give defenders of the Affordable Care Act reasons to have hope.

Caring for our battlefields of history

American soldiers on both sides never dreamed of airplanes in their combat when the battle of Camden was fought on August 16, 1780 at Gum Swamp. Yet, just a few weeks ago, I led the commanders and staff of much of the 9th (Ninth) Air Force and its fighter squadrons across our battlefield to study the terrain and tactics. What would today's Air Force Major General Lawrence Wells and his colonels care about a 232-year-old Revolutionary War battle? Simple question with a solid answer, of which many of our local citizens may not be aware. Technology, armaments, and accoutrements ...
