The ghosts of Benghazi

WASHINGTON -- We may never know exactly what happened in Benghazi the night Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans were killed, but it's becoming increasingly clear that our response was short of optimum.

Offseason moves will help Braves whip Washington

If the Atlanta Braves are going to capitalize on last season's success, they'll need two key ingredients in 2013. The first will be finding the offensive numbers to replace retired third baseman Chipper Jones. A clubhouse staple since he arrived on the scene in 1995, his 14 homers and .287 batting average in 2012 were obviously down numbers for the future Hall of Famer. However, for a team that ranked 21st in overall batting last season, any player with an average over .250 is considered a gift.

Military Monday - Feb. 11, 2012

6 February 1983: I board a greyhound bus to Fort Benning, Ga. I am on my way to Basic Training and Advanced Individual Training (AIT). Thirteen and half weeks later I graduate as an infantry soldier.

KershawHealth centennial marks a continued sacred trust

The celebration of KershawHealth's centennial year is an excellent time to take stock and focus for the future. As always, the starting point must be our mission -- providing excellent care for everyone in Kershaw County, a mission that has remained unchanged for 100 years. It is a sacred trust, passed down by generations of hospital and community leaders who made the kinds of decisions necessary to maintain and support that mission. It seems appropriate to reflect on some of those defining moments in our history and the ways in which they have shaped how we provide excellent care for ...

Family breakdown goes biracial

I know from past experience that I'm going to upset some folks by saying this, so brace yourselves: marriage is very important and beneficial to the raising of children, but there's little evidence that it fights crime.

Chief

His name is Richard, but we called him Chief. No, he was not a member of the police force nor was he a local Native American Tribal elder. He was, and is, a Chief Warrant Officer Four (CW4) in the Army, or "Chief" in the slang terminology of the military.

Ed Koch saved NYC

Ed Koch: abrasive, funny, inspirational, Mayor of New York 1978-1989. Friday morning, he passed away. His passing can mean little to many of us in Camden; but to us former New Yorkers, especially those of us who worked to alleviate the financial crisis and the deterioration of life in New York, it is a time for us to remember and honor him. I hope you will share this remembrance with me.

Drawing with dynamite

On my cartoons you can see I go by my last name, Ariail. If you read the letters to the editor in the papers that carry my work you'd find I go by a few other names as well. But that's how it should be. Editorial pages and editorial cartoons are forums for expressing opinions and different ideas that on occasion clash with those of the reader. Editorials and cartoons can inform the reader on issues of the day and hopefully, provoke thought and discussion. That's their primary role.
