Romney's hidden NAACP audience

Political speeches have applause lines and "boo" lines. Which reaction do you think Mitt Romney expected when he promised the 103rd convention of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People that, if elected president, he would get rid of "Obamacare?"

Trolling for boos

WASHINGTON -- We're still a few weeks from summer's dog days and the conventions, and already feral rabidity has set in. Add to the long list of psycho-political syndromes the "Romney Derangement Syndrome."

The president's punching bag

There's no doubting Mitt Romney when it comes to job creation. Even President Obama's supporters have patted him on the back for it. Unfortunately for the Republican nominee, the devil is in the details.

Teenage employment

Many teenagers are desperately seeking employment in these times. I joined them many years ago: in fact, I began work at age 11 and was furious when the "powers that be" decided every person under the age of sixteen had to have a doctor certify that the individual was not harming his health. I made the astronomical sum of a dollar a day at the dime store (98 cents when taxes were removed) and hated the thought of having to have the two dollar test to keep my job. My duties included everything from clerking to all types of housekeeping ...

Weeding out phony warriors

Bragging about military honors you didn't receive is despicable yet still constitutional, says the Supreme Court. I agree. But help is on the way for those who want to weed out the fakers, if Congress can put aside its own battles long enough.

Kershaw County Teacher Forum:

Not long after I got here five years ago, several teachers came to meet with me to talk about Teacher Forum. At the time, I was picturing this to be the Kershaw County version of some sort of a Teacher Advisory Committee. I was very wrong. The Kershaw County Teacher Forum is so much more. It is a group that really promotes the development of teacher leaders who are ready to help take on tough issues and problems in their own schools, within the District and beyond. It is a model of teacher leadership that needs to be replicated across ...

Parker spot-on with Rainey column

Kathleen Parker, who lives part of the time in Camden, and I probably don't see eye-to-eye on everything, certainly not in the political arena. That's OK; diversity of views is what makes the world go around for me.

Not an easy ride at school

A recent study released by a Washington think tank says school is too easy for most kids in the United States, failing to challenge them and leaving them bored.

Camden's Rainey: words vs. deeds

CAMDEN -- South Carolina politics never fails to amuse -- and bemuse.

A call for courage

When we Americans celebrate the Fourth of July, what word comes readily to mind? Freedom -- and rightly so. But you can't have freedom without other virtues.

Sending in the drones

Congress is hotly debating media leaks about President Barack Obama's "kill list" of terrorists to be targeted by unmanned drones. They should be debating the drone policy itself.

Returning to the Land of Oz

If you've heard the rumors that Disney and former Spider-Man movie director Sam Raimi are making a "prequel" to The Wizard of Oz, you heard right. It'll even star Raimi's Spider-Man co-star James Franco. It's all about how the humbug carny man (Franco) got swept to the the land of Oz and became the great and wonderful Wizard.

The legend of Lloyd Seay

Their histories, accurate and complete, are lost to time and buried with them and those who knew them. I wish I knew more for their stories would read like a page-turning novel.

Star Trek ... in the news!

OK, OK, yes I'm talking Star Trek again, but hang on, this is really more about newspapers than Star Trek. All right, maybe 50-50.

Not lost, just seeing the sights

In 1964, the World's Fair was in New York City. I was 6 years old and went with my parents and older sister to the fair. New York City seemed like a different world to a little boy from Dexter, Mo., but it was all good. We rode on subway trains, we had cheeseburgers in a diner where the staff had funny accents and rode the Staten Island Ferry and saw the Statue of Liberty. I saw a billboard that had the Marlboro man blowing smoke out of his mouth. We were living it up.

51 days in a car with boys

The hand that rocks the ballot box

In their denouncements of the Supreme Court's Hobby Lobby ruling, Hillary Clinton and other Democrats have been accused of pandering to single women -- the so-called "Beyoncé voter" demographic, as one Fox News commentator sniggered.

S.C., immigration and ‘Us vs. Them’

First things first: every nation must secure and control its borders. This is not political rhetoric or an ideological judgment but a simple geo-political fact.
