Never name anything you're going to eat

It's kind of interesting the way we perceive our animals, especially pets, these days.

Dealing with online music overload

An interesting personal statistic (one I didn't realize until a few days ago): I have been out of the radio broadcasting business for longer than I was in it. I actually passed that landmark more than a year ago. I worked at radio stations, on and off, for 14 years, ending in the summer of 1995. That was 16 years ago. Where has the time gone?

Look what we've 'Made in Taiwan'

As I write this column, my plane is taking off from Taiwan's Taoyuan Airport to bring me back home. It was a special visit to Taiwan -- one that helped put so many earlier visits into a larger perspective.

Being offended at being offended

Geez, we have become the most easily offended, quick-to-demand-an-apology, can't-take-a-joke society, maybe in the history of the world, even including Marco Polo, Julius Caesar, Richard Nixon and Steve Spurrier.

Obama's lonely presidency

News media depict presidencies as long-running soap operas. The story doesn't end, but it goes through changes.

‘Flash mob politics,’ from both sides now

They're mad -- mad as hell! -- and they're taking their anger to the streets.

School 'historians'

On Feb. 4, 1904, the Camden Chronicle and the Wateree Messenger were joined by a third newspaper in Camden, the People, whose editor was J. A. Shrock. In his first issue editor Shrock introduced a serial feature, "Graded School Compositions," which appeared in almost every issue until late May 1904. Shrock explained, "The editor was unfortunate … to secure only a limited education, and feels the keenest interest in assisting others who were more fortunate than himself."

The Fan

Dark clouds have been lifted, giving way to blue (and white and orange and black and garnet) skies -- football season is back. For this, fans of every age and team color are grateful. And with immense pride and bliss, they don the jersey of their beloved team; their team that will go all the way this season. At least that's what we, the fans, want to believe; it's what we hold on to year after year as if "it" was the winning lottery ticket; a victorious season in our clutches. Fans want to believe this is the moment ...

A scorned South Carolina hero

April 11, 2014 was a very important day in the history of South Carolina. Few people noticed that anything much happened – but I would argue that this was the day we as a state did two very important things.

The Colbert Report

WASHINGTON -- In selecting Stephen Colbert to replace David Letterman as host of the "Late Show," CBS has waged war on America's heartland -- or so proclaims that Palm Beach font of heartland mirth, Rush Limbaugh.

Focusing on finding the best healthcare outcomes

Recently, I attended the Congress on Healthcare Leadership presented by the American College of Healthcare Executives, and I was most impressed by one presentation: Building the New Healthcare Delivery System. In particular, I was struck by the fact that healthcare executives from across the country were focused almost exclusively on this new world of healthcare and its impact on how the organizations they lead are designed.

Beautiful in a different way

She was not a pretty woman in the days of her youth. Her lips were too thin, her forehead too high and her eyes so round that they seemed to bulge into the lens of the glasses she wore.

‘NEGU’

Life requires courage. Courage doesn't always roar like a lion. Sometimes courage is a quiet voice, unassuming in all its resilience and fortitude, the gentle giant among us, the self-effacing titan in our presence. Remember the line, or was it a show on television -- "kids say the darndest things?" For the moment, I'm going to change it to say, "Kids do insanely courageous things." I always find it an amazing occurrence when certain people or groups of people are put in our paths. They dissect our "straight" lines for reasons often unknown to us. Most of us just ...

Time again to grab from the mailbag

If you're glad spring is here and you're looking back on this winter as one of the worst ever, you're right. But if you want a few weather statistics that are really cruel, try these on for size:

The bigger they are…

I have been watching with great interest this week the news reports on the trial of former Chesterfield County Sheriff Sam Parker. As many of you know, I came here from Pageland in Chesterfield County in late December and when I first went to work there in early 2011, Parker was the sheriff. So, I knew Parker well through my work.

Southern charm

WASHINGTON -- After writing close to 3,000 columns, I've learned that people sometimes read what they're looking for, often as a result of a headline, rather than what I wrote.
