SC 2014: Are you better off…?

As the calendar turns to an election year here in South Carolina, all the usual political suspects are starting to offer up all the usual political rhetoric to try to win your vote, with one side telling you that our state's current economic forecast is cloudy with a chance of Armageddon, and the other insisting that prosperity, or at least whatever passes for it these days, is right around the corner.

Sherman’s war on S.C. civilians

Prior to invading South Carolina, Sherman stated his intentions in a communication with General Grant. "I do sincerely believe that the whole United States, north and south, would rejoice to have this army turned loose on South Carolina, to devastate that state in the manner we have done in Georgia…."

Healthcare industry blues for 2014?

As I spelled out near the end of last month, the biggest local story of 2013 was KershawHealth. As faithful readers know, as the healthcare organization celebrated its centennial, it became further bogged down by losses caused primarily by external factors. Those factors include continuing shifts -- thanks to the economic fallout of the last few years -- from inpatient to outpatient volumes, cuts in governmental and commercial reimbursements and South Carolina's decision not to expand Medicaid.

The way she was

The way she was was a long way from what she became. I can't help thinking about how life veers so far away from the beginning of the journey and how the destination can vary drastically from where it all started.

The insufferable whistleblower

WASHINGTON -- Time has not deflated Edward Snowden's messianic sense of self-importance. Nor has living in an actual police state given the National Security Agency whistleblower any greater appreciation of the actual freedoms that Americans enjoy.

New year, new leaf

As the memories of Christmas fade behind us and we enter a new year, it is time once again to reflect on the past year and look forward to the year ahead.

Murph on...

Like many Americans, I continue to be amazed at the tremendous valor and humility of our military past and present fighting and protecting the very freedoms we welcome everyday. I never want to take their selfless service for granted. Since 9/11, our armed forces have been fighting what some would describe as the impossible -- the Global War on Terror -- including the recent conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. They train and train then train some more. They answer the call of duty from their commander in chief swiftly and without hesitation. Most will tell you they are simply doing their ...

2014 ... a/k/a the best year yet

I have a great feeling that 2014 is going to be a great year. I'm not the type to trash on an entire year, and I also try to find the good in situations, but what the heck, 2013 -- why were you kinda lame?

Happy New Year!

We begin 2014 with renewed hope and energy -- and the usual complications at every turn.

Thanks for the memories

WASHINGTON -- The year-end review required of all columnists inevitably brings us to the mailbag and a few clarifications.

Exotic lands

Being married to my husband was never boring! During the past 30 years, he planned trips for us to England, Ireland, Scotland, Australia, France, Switzerland, Italy, Russia, Mexico, Argentina, Greece and other usual tourist spots. Each of these had many fond and not-so-fond memories. Few, however, exceeded China, where I heard a young man tell me he had seen me in Playboy Magazine and want to show me to his mother at his home; Egypt, where a policeman insisted I give him my name so, when I disappeared, my family could hear of my loss, and one man insisted on ...

A light look back and forward

Isn't that a great cartoon by Ariail up there? I love how Baby New Year's coming in on a drone, taking a selfie as Old Man 2013 looks on incredulously. It's inspiring, even ... at least to someone who needs to write an end-of-the-year column.

Resolutely carrying on

For those of you who are faithful to this column, you will, no doubt, recall that last year I made brand new resolutions. I tossed out the old ones that I had failed at repeatedly and trudged ahead to new ones, optimistically believing that success was mine for the taking.

Morgan: Not the Fed

Watching this year's presidential campaign has been interesting, to say the least. There's obviously a lot of pent-up citizen anger about "Washington" and ...
