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 ...

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 ...

Romney/Ryan: Who, me?

TAMPA, Fla. -- Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan have one big problem that must have Barack Obama walking on air: They're running against themselves.

Offseason changes should lead to intriguing NFL season

Kicking off the start of the NFL regular season tonight, the New York Giants will be trying to avoid a fate that hasn't befallen an NFC team in five years. If the Giants don't make the playoffs, they will be the first team in the conference since Chicago in 2007 to play in the Super Bowl and miss the postseason the following year.

'A Loving Heart and Caring Hands'

On a memorable day for them in 1920, Luke and Ella Catoe McLaughlin welcomed their fourth child and only daughter, Annie B., into the world. The McLaughlins then lived on their farm in the Sandy Grove area of the greater Cassatt community. Cassatt was their post office.

Decoding Romney’s odd humor

Mitt Romney probably should not try to joke about President Barack Obama's birth certificate. It's potentially offensive and, worse, he's not very good at it.

All hands on deck

Among journalists, there are those stories that show you what you're made of. They challenge you, maybe even drive you crazy as you try to figure out just what the heck is going on. But they also teach you, not just about the craft of journalism, but about yourself.

Corporate tax returns should be public

Tax inversions. Double Irish with a Dutch sandwich. Spinning off tangible assets into real estate investment trusts. Son-of-BOSS shelters.

Pride and humility

It has become somewhat of an art for me, that of studying Southern culture and deciphering what makes us different from others as well as downright peculiar among ourselves.

The storytellers of Dillon County

Our family has spent many a pleasant summer day with several families from the Dillon area and the experience is always enjoyable and the manner in which they address their friends, neighbors and kinfolk is like taking a step back in the "Old South." Everyone seems to have a prefix or you are a tourist just stopping by.

There is no longer any doubt that America still has a long way to go before it can say that it has grown beyond the prejudices and fear and tragic cycle of action and reaction when it comes to relations between blacks and whites.

Mob mentality

I have admitted in this column many times that I have become a "grumpy old man." Well, folks, here I go again. I often blame technology and the instant sharing of news and opinions on many of society's ills, and that's what I'm doing again today.

How to grow grass under a tree

I have many colleagues who are of the turf persuasion and we have come to an understanding to agree to disagree. I think grass is a weed, they think a tree is a weed -- in nature the two aren't meant to meet. This is why only grass grows on the Great Plains and only trees grow in the forest. But since we aren't on the Plains or in the forest, we try and get plants to co-exist in arranged landscape designs we like to see.
