Will, welcome back. Your commentary has truly been missed in these ever so dry pages these days.
One item of major importance that is often neglected in these articles of the abysmal quality of education in South Carolina-the state's historical tendency to deliberately undereducate the masses in order to keep a supply of permanently cheap labor, which also explains its nonprogressive attitude toward unions and other items that would benefit the populace.
Jack, are you familiar with Tavis Smiley and Dr. Cornel West? They are both leftists who speak out against President Obama and this issue of the drones, as well as Melissa Perry of MSNBC and Bob (BA) Avakian of the ultra-extreme leftist Revolutionary Communist Party of America.
"If Batman and Superman were truly heroes, they'd dedicate themselves to thwarting the crimes that go on behind closed doors — crimes like spousal abuse and child molestation "and the true dangers out on the streets — drunk drivers, texters, and reckless assholes. More importantly, they'd make sure that the hungry are fed, the homeless have shelter, and the downtrodden are given a helping hand. They have the resources and power to do these things, but they don't."
Excuse me, but in Superman #1 (1939, not the famous Action Comics #1 of 1938), Supe is seen socking it to a wife beater and foiling a lynching. In that same issue, he stops a dunk train engineer from causing an accident. In one of the next three issues, he rescued an orphan from being abused by a crooked caretaker.
