Romney's hidden NAACP audience

Political speeches have applause lines and "boo" lines. Which reaction do you think Mitt Romney expected when he promised the 103rd convention of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People that, if elected president, he would get rid of "Obamacare?"

Teenage employment

Many teenagers are desperately seeking employment in these times. I joined them many years ago: in fact, I began work at age 11 and was furious when the "powers that be" decided every person under the age of sixteen had to have a doctor certify that the individual was not harming his health.

My duties included everything from clerking to all types of housekeeping ...

Parker spot-on with Rainey column

Kathleen Parker, who lives part of the time in Camden, and I probably don't see eye-to-eye on everything, certainly not in the political arena. That's OK; diversity of views is what makes the world go around for me.

Camden's Rainey: words vs. deeds

CAMDEN -- South Carolina politics never fails to amuse -- and bemuse.

A call for courage

When we Americans celebrate the Fourth of July, what word comes readily to mind? Freedom -- and rightly so. But you can't have freedom without other virtues.

Sending in the drones

Congress is hotly debating media leaks about President Barack Obama's "kill list" of terrorists to be targeted by unmanned drones. They should be debating the drone policy itself.

Murder is a strong word and truth be known it's not really what happens (unfortunately) when a crape myrtle, a Southern signature tree is topped, but it has become a familiar vernacular amongst plant people. If crape myrtles did in fact die when they were butchered, then the practice would stop.
