Happy Whatever Day

Singles Awareness Day (SAD) is coming up in about two weeks and for those of us who currently recognize this day … because we're single … preparatory tactics are now underway. Yes, Feb. 14 is right around the corner. Don't believe me? Visit any drug store and tell me if you aren't bombarded with pink, glittery, sparkly, heart-shaped, Teddy-beared, floral explosions of commercially motivated depictions of love.

A really different State of the Union speech

If none of this makes sense, my apologies -- I'm writing this in a Type A Flu-induced fugue. Also, please know that I did not watch, read or listen to the president's State of the Union speech the other night. Yes, I voted for Mr. Obama, twice, but I realized something as I began seeing dribs and drabs about the speech online: while the specifics may be different from year to year, we've heard most of what is contained in such speeches, decade after decade, regardless of who's in the Oval Office.

The diminishing returns of a college education

President Obama is correct in wanting to make higher education more affordable and accessible, but Americans would also be correct in wondering just what they're paying for.

The rules of the road

Sometimes I think I'm becoming the typical "grumpy old man." There are some things that bother me much more than in my younger years. But there's something that has bothered me since my teens and that's people who simply don't know how to drive. Believe me, there are many of them out there.

A few moments worth taking

When I arrived at work Monday morning, I found a sticky note message on my desk from my boss that reminded me to turn off my space heater when leaving work. Apparently I had left it running when I left on Friday. Upon reading that, my stomach literally felt like the bottom fell out … you know the feeling of being on an amusement park ride and taking a sudden drop. That's what I felt.

Gov. Haley’s strange relationship with Common Core

South Carolina politicians are masters at promising one thing and doing the opposite. From ethics reform to restructuring, they promise the moon and deliver exactly nothing. How do they get away with it? By assuming that the public won't dig any deeper than a post on Facebook. Gov. Nikki Haley, for example, posted this on her Facebook page: "We have been trying to repeal Common Core since 2011 when we came into office. Whether its [sic] education, healthcare, or any aspect of government, we will fight to keep all standards state based, not federal." She then linked to a ...

Being independent

Back years ago when Mama was widowed, it became suddenly and shockingly clear that she wasn't completely capable of being on her own. This was news to us because she had always stepped up and did whatever it took to look after our family. She was quite ingenious and hard working.

Music vs. TV for attention span

As a connoisseur of both music and television, I've noticed some interesting trends during the last few years. Like many things, such trends can be considered good or bad. On the good side are the abilities to tailor entertainment experiences to our own preferences and defer listening or viewing experiences to meet our busy schedules.
