When push comes to shove

WASHINGTON -- The shocking thing about Greg Gianforte's assault on a journalist isn't that he body-slammed and punched a reporter but that it took so long for the inevitable to occur.

Staying in bed

As I see it, because I've studied quite a bit on this, my day goes off the rails pretty much as soon as I get out of bed. Sometimes it is a kind day so I can get through a cup of coffee and morning news before things start a-changin' and my plans disappear like morning dew in the summer's heat.

Leapfrog progress for S.C.?

For hundreds of years, we in Western society have thought about things with a lineal and increment mind set. Progress -- in society, commerce, science, engineering, etc. -- was believed to be something that happens sequentially, usually slowly, with one step leading to another. This mindset is embedded in how we think about things and express ourselves "steady as she goes … one step at a time … the tortoise wins the race, etc."

The missing

Thursday marked a tragic sixth anniversary for the people of Saipan, the principal island of the U.S. Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI) where I lived during my high school years.

An orb, a sword and a slap

PALM BEACH, Fla. -- By now you're exhausted by all the head-swiveling news -- the terrorist slaughter in Manchester; the president's trip to Everywhere; and investigation upon investigation of the possible collusion with Russia, obstruction of justice, and liars by the dozen.

Pinto beans, cornbread and buttermilk

My sister said once that she doesn't really like pinto beans because when she was growing up, Mama cooked a pot three or four times a week.

Pine tree pests and their characteristics

The unofficial start of summer is upon us and with it will come months of high temperatures, periods of no rain and occasional storms accompanied by lightning. What do these things have in common with pine trees? Pine beetles.

Nimblewill

As the road twisted and turned while rising up through the elevation of the tree-smothered mountain, I slowed the car and looked at the place so dear to my family. A place where faith and calloused hands fought poverty and poverty gave birth to dreams and eventual escape. My ancestors sowed there so we could reap abundantly elsewhere.

Horses, history and a call for help

A Sunday afternoon sitting on the porch talking history, horses and dogs with Janson Cox was almost more than I could ask for. Mr. Cox is the former director of the S.C. Cotton Museum, a Citadel graduate and a Southern historian who has called Camden and Dragoon Farm home for many years now. As Mr. Cox's two Shetland Sheep dogs lay sleeping on either side of my chair, I listened raptly as he weaved historical anecdotes into our conversation. You can tell history is a passion -- and so is his love for the Carolina Marsh Tacky horse.

The future of Camden

Former elected officials, namely me, probably have no business writing columns about the city, but many people continue to imagine I can still address what they perceive as problems to be solved. Probably the hardest part of being the former Mayor is listening to residents (still) telling me the town is going to pot.

The forgotten fort

Camden is proud of her Revolutionary War heritage. The Battle of Camden and the Battle of Hobkirk Hill play pivotal roles in the history of the Southern Campaign of the Revolutionary War. But there was another engagement here between the Loyalists and the Patriots that we rarely talk about. The actions of one of its main characters focus on a larger issue of the Revolutionary War that those of us with Patriot bloodlines don't often think about -- why some American colonists chose to support the British rule rather than take on the Patriot cause.
