The sign along the canal pointed, “To Fargo and all points south (if you know how).” It was a wise-crack reminder that this place the Indians called “The Land of Trembling Earth” is an ever-changing, confusing landscape. “It’s really easy to get disoriented out here…People disappear. You can get...
Seriously. I can’t remember being this busy in a really long time. There are those dear, still hard-working friends and relatives (yeah, my kids) who may sneer just a bit when they call and I can’t talk because I am playing canasta or mahjong. I’ve been where they are…I like where I am now. I do...
Hurricane season is here and the First Congressional District has a lot to be grateful for.

We traveled to the State House in Columbia with 10,000 teachers and supporters for the SC for Ed rally. It was incredible. The energy was...
Administration transparency My friends call me a news junkie. Not so anymore.
