I will do better - promise


Today, I am disappointed with myself. Coming off a very active May 13 - not an unlucky day, by any stretch of the imagination - and working a seven-hour shift covering the Presbyterian College Commencement on May 14, I hit the wall.

The Author Has Died

Pat Conroy has died, and I must write.

It is so totally inconvenient. It's been a long week. I'm sitting here with a mug of tea that is guaranteed to put me to sleep. I should be in the other room watching Criminal Minds. I've just come back from a dinner with interesting people, brought together by an interesting situation, a place where Pat would love to hold court. I'm body and brain tired. I just HAVE TO put these few thoughts down on what passes for paper in these digital times we live in. Pat Conroy was my college commencement speaker.

Dancing with a memory

I came back to the newspaper business in 2011. For five years, I had been a teacher at Newberry High School. I almost went to Ninety Six, after finishing PACE, but a friend who was the assistant principal at NHS called to ask if I had signed a contract. I hadn’t - I became, instead, a Bulldog instructor.

Cruise on home, Ted

When Saturday is over and all the Republican know-it-alls go home, none will be more welcome to take the bus outta town than Ted Cruz. He has former governor turned App Trail hiker Mark Sanford campaigning for him and some Duck Dynasty guy campaigning for him in Saturday's First in the South Republican presidential preference primary. He had run a semi-respectable race - until Friday.
