Noble: Andy Griffith is stopping progress in South Carolina
Placeholder Image
OK, the headline got your attention, so now hopefully you will read the whole column -- and no, it’s not technically true. Andy Griffith died in 2012 and he was from North Carolina, not South Carolina. But today, too many South Carolina politicians are holding back progress because they have the “Mayberry mindset” -- they believe we should go back to Mayberry of the Andy Griffith Show of the 1950s -- and they pursue short sighted, narrow policies they think will somehow take us back to these “good old days.”
