  • In our effort to appease, we lose more than we gain

    Dr. Brooks Walker’s guest column, “Seek truth: Stop mob from ruling,” in the July 15 edition of The Lancaster News makes clear by illustrious examples his point that “facts have no place in a conversation based on emotion and assumption.”

    He further states, “Justice begins with the search for truth...” followed by more vivid illustrations showing that truth is not being sought by those who scream “no justice, no peace.”

    There can be no justice without truth. Lady Justice has always been depicted as blind.

  • No one has ever had the stage presence of Elvis Presley

    As far back as I can remember, Elvis was part of my life. It was a treat to go to the drive-in with the family and I clearly remember a night we saw three of his movies at the old Townview.

    For those too young to know, a drive-in is just like a DVD player for your car except the screen is huge and outside, you can only go at night, and mosquitos eat you alive in the summer.

    I just happened to be watching NBC in November of 1968 when Elvis exploded onto the screen in what is now called the “‘68 Comeback Special.”

  • S.C. education: Buckets, fires and computers

    Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire,” said the Irish poet William Butler Yeats.

    In South Carolina, we are spending far too much time trying to fill pails (often with holes in them) and not nearly enough time lighting fires. But the good news is that there is no better fire starter for young minds (or old ones for that matter) than a computer connected to the Internet.

    And therein lies a great hope for our state – and there are real reasons to be encouraged.
