America loved Charles Buchinsky

A couple weeks ago I was watching an old western movie on television when a young actor caught my eye.

Gun rights and the risk of suicide

With lots of talk about gun rights, concealed weapon permits and school resource officers, it seems we've let one group that is also affected by gun ownership slip under the radar.

1776 and SC’s young radicals

A decent respect for our history and heritage demands that over the Fourth of July holidays we do more than just eat bar-b-que, watch fireworks or go fishing.

Is the R-word the new N-word?

A new poll suggests that Americans, including black Americans, tend to think blacks are more racist than whites or Hispanics. I don't think we are. We only sound like it sometimes.

A bullet through the heart

WASHINGTON -- In the annals of murder trials, few testimonies can rival the impact of slain teenager Trayvon Martin's mother Sybrina Fulton: "I heard my son screaming."

Red, the wonderful Black Lab

One Saturday, my neighbor came into my yard followed by a dog, about the size of a small cow, and carrying a small bag of dog chow. I paid little attention to her, but fixated on the animal that had one dead eye and a perpetually bent ear. He looked fearsome and immediately moved toward me, tail wagging, placing his muzzle on my bare leg. He looked like the Hound of the Baskervilles. Fate has many surprises. The neighbor volunteered in saving kennel dogs about to be put to sleep. She did not accept my refusal, so I became the ...

The Millennials

I recently received an article consisting of a list pinpointing how my generation is different than previous generations. The article was written by Jeff Janssen and within the article he referenced a book called Millennials Go to College by Neil Howe and William Strauss. The generation I am part of is commonly referred to as "the Millennials" and includes those born anywhere from 1980 to the present. The makers of the list came up with seven primary ways in which the millennial generation is significantly different. Those seven aspects were: special, sheltered, confident, team-oriented, conventional, pressured and achieving. The most ...

The sudden sainthood of Wendy Davis

WASHINGTON -- I like Texas state Sen. Wendy Davis. I admire her intelligence, chutzpah, tenacity and, to be perfectly honest, her enviable continence.

Protect this house

Celebrating Independence Day always covers a broad gamut of activities for Americans. Many of us observe the Fourth of July with fireworks, parades, barbecues, baseball games, trips to the beach, all the while proudly sporting the red, white, and blue. We will watch our children wave small American flags as the parade rolls by (on North Causeway Road, Pauley's Island!). On their faces, we'll see absolute naiveté as they move about almost as if in slow motion, oblivious to the world around them, worrisome only wondering what fun they'll have next, and realizing in a way their ...

‘Soapy’ death freed Skagway, Alaska

A very long time ago, I read James A. Michener's novel, Alaska. I was in a period where I thought it was neat to follow the "history" of a place from its earliest geological birth to wherever it was Michener happened to leave off. Alaksa was the last of his novels I ever read and vowed never to go back because -- as the Library Journal reviewed in 1988 -- the "final sections are trite, uneven and overloaded with stereotypes."

SIB: S.C. as global leader in government innovation

Even if you don't know what an SIB is, and few people do, this headline is surprising -- if not downright shocking. But it is true.

Brothers

A girl who does not have a brother never receives a thorough education. For example, when I saw that my brother never had to do odious chores such as cooking, washing dishes, ironing or whatever, I determined to do all I could to become a boy. My brother cooperated in many ways; for one, he said if I kissed my elbow, I would magically become male, this chore keeping me from following him around since he was my god. Also, he assured me, if I would be salt on a bird's tail, I could catch it with ease. Finding ...

Paula Deen’s menu: foot in mouth

You knew Paula Deen was in serious trouble when the celebrity chef turned for help to the Rev. Jesse Jackson. He's still the go-to guy for celebrities in dire need to patch things up after breeches of racial etiquette.
