Rodney Welch, Elgin, S.C.: “So very good to hear the Senator’s voice again. He remains irreplaceable. I well remember as a reporter in Camden asking him about the Sam Donaldson incident and him saying ‘He asks about my Korean suit and I asked about his Oriental rug.'”
Katherine DuV. Beard, Camden: “Read that had Donald Trump taken the $1 million his father gave him and invested it in low-cost Index funds, it would have been a better investment than his business ventures. The same could be said of the Retirement System Investment Commission (RSIC). “
St. Claire Nettles, Landrum, S.C.: “Mr. Williams should be removed from this position. He represents all that is wrong with people who feel entitled to break the rules of a civilized society. I hope someone will find out who put him on the board and how do the citizens of this state and graduates of the university hasten his removal?”
Dan Ruck, Taylors, S.C.: I agree, Hillary could win South Carolina. She is aiming to crush the Republican Party, not just beat Trump. And that is what she absolutely will have to do if she doesn’t want four years like Obama has had, especially lately. Also, a letter by S.C. Rep. Bill Herbkersman, R-Bluffton.
Dale M. Rhodes, Richmond, Va.: “I don’t think you’ll find anybody who has ever had anything to do with State budget work who truthfully thinks the “holiday” is a good idea.”
Rachel Covington, East Windsor, N.J.: The following is my response to the article written by Andy Brack. The innovative writer brilliantly spoke truth to power. “Trump’s rise rooted in S.C. politics from 50 years ago” was indeed the best food for thought since apple pie for taste.
JoAnne Day, Columbia: “What I would really like to see South Carolina aim for now is automatic voter registration at the state Department of Motor Vehicles and other public service agencies, such as currently happens in states such as Oregon. There is also a bill being proposed for this to happen nationally.” Also: A letter rebutting Andy Brack’s column on “The recoil of hope.”
David G. Ellison, Greenville: “People will come and go, but until our representatives think statewide rather than provincially and putting re-election above all else, we won’t see the radical change that we need: to rein in our unfunded pension liability; to have judges appointed on the federal model versus by legislator-lawyers who practice in front of them; and to enact tax reform that will super-charge economic growth.” Click for two more letters.
