GOP: Choose wisely or reap the whirlwind

WASHINGTON -- The Cliven Bundy spectacle in Nevada has provided a Wild West backdrop for our hottest political issues as we gallop toward the midterm elections.

Saying goodbye to a friend

I've used my column to express various opinions, ideas and experiences I've had. I've used it as a way to make others smile or laugh and a way to share my passion for various aspects of life. Today, I use it in a more somber way, to remember the life of a friend who was recently lost.

We in S.C. are generous -- aren’t we?

We in South Carolina like to think of ourselves as caring and generous people -- willing to give our time and money to help our fellow man. This is how we see ourselves.

State chamber’s on the wrong side of almost everything

What's the difference between the terms "pro-free market" and "pro-business?" The former refers to policies that limit or remove government interference in economic activity: low taxes, fewer regulations, the absence of government subsidies, etc. The term "pro-business," by contrast, can mean almost anything. For the state Chamber of Commerce -- as well as a number of local chambers -- it usually means more government spending; government interference in education and healthcare; and wealth redistributions from taxpayers to favored businesses.

I dream of an airport museum

Recently, I took my sons on what we called the Cahn All-Boys 2014 Spring Break to see my father in Upper Marlboro, Md., about 30 minutes from downtown Washington, D.C.

Men of war

We had a funeral at church the other day which was not unusual. Rodney laid his work aside and came to direct the choir. That, too, was not unusual. I sang in the choir. Now that was very unusual.

N.C. and S.C.: How do we compare?

I have always had a thing about North Carolina. Simply put, I don't like them.

Butterflies are free

As I have written here at least once before, only to be proven wrong, Spring is finally here. I really hope I am right this time, but I guess we're never completely immune in April to a cold front coming through that would bring a rainy day or two and then the drop in temperature that always follows. But, let's keep the optimism up and say, with faith, that Spring really is here to stay.

Grandmother Hillary

A simple phone call

It was a simple phone call, out of the blue, from someone I'd known years before.

Sticking up for the Pine tree

Nothing quite marks spring here in South Carolina like the blooming of daffodils and dogwoods, the fluttering of robins and the release of the pine pollen. Each spring as I walk my dog through the woods during the height of pine pollen release, my footsteps stir the airy spores and coat my shoes. Is it annoying? You betcha. But you know this is the natural order of things and one of Mother Nature's most basic processes, reproduction.

Got Putin, yet?

WASHINGTON -- The new "agreement" between Russia, the U.S. and our allies is exactly what the former KGB agent ordered.

Just keep walking

Sylvia Plath said, in her autobiographical novel The Bell Jar, "There must be quite a few things a hot bath won't cure, but I don't know many of them." While I do fully agree with the literary force of genius that is Plath, if that had been my statement, I would have written it: "There must be quite a few things a hot bath or a long walk won't cure, but I don't know many of them."

Giving Back

Recently, I was listening to a talk radio host railing about how public schools "no longer teach values." This issue seems to be a mantra of sorts for some folks in the media, many of whom I suspect haven't been anywhere near a public school in years. As someone who is in public schools every day, I can't for the life of me figure out what this view is based on. I know it's not based on reality.
