The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on Tuesday proposed updates to its Cross-State Air Pollution Rule in response to a recent decision by the D.C. Circuit Court.
With unrivaled antebellum architecture and a long, winding history that underlies its genteel charm, Charleston is a modern-day mecca for art, music, and food. It is a microcosm of Southern culture and history.
Noted travel writer and novelist Paul Theroux's new book, Deep South, brings very mixed reactions. On more than one occasion, I wondered, "Where does this guy get off saying that?" And I grab the book and want to hurl it through the window.
Recent attempts to justify the horrific violence against black women and girls has me again returning to Sojourner Truth's question: "Ain't I a woman?" As a society we have to set a standard without compromises: Adult men should not beat, hit, pull the hair of or slam to the ground women and girls.
Police in schools and treating African-American and Latino students as criminals is not a uniquely South Carolina phenomenon. Since 1998, security guards in New York City schools are a division of the police department.
