LETTERS:  Proud of Bright, Horne

LETTERS: Proud of Bright, Horne

Hurrah for [state Rep.] Jenny Horne! She expressed the frustration what many of us white South Carolinians descended from slave owners felt about the flag flying on the Statehouse grounds. We are able, unlike those representatives who voted to keep the flag flying, to feel the pain our African American sisters and brothers have felt living under what has become a symbol of hate.

LETTER:  Love your South Carolina photos

LETTER: Love your South Carolina photos

For the past several years, I have admired and enjoyed the southern photos in your reports. As a visual artist and art teacher, your photos are inspiration for me to do drawing studies in my sketchbook.

LETTER: Time to furl the flag

LETTER: Time to furl the flag

Excellent piece (above) on the confluence of events that helped South Carolinians — and hopefully a lot more people who treated old South enthusiasts like their dotty Uncle Fred but let them get away with their delusions by ignoring them — to begin folding the flag.

LETTERS: Column on reaction to church shooting helped

LETTERS: A modest proposal

As we end the legislative session with the prime piece of business — roads — unfinished, let’s give some thought about how we might pay for road repairs in a way that is fair to taxpayers and drivers, most (but not all) of whom are the same people.

LETTERS: Exceptionalism column sparks thoughts on America

LETTERS: Exceptionalism column sparks thoughts on America

I have always had mixed feelings about American Exceptionalism. While I know we generally believe in it, I have never been able to decide if we actually were exceptional. Many of the French that I know lead rather productive happy lives. Perhaps we have been blessed with a country that had so much natural richness it was just easier for us to possess wealth and be exceptional than it was and is for the more densely populated developed world.
