It’s the most wonderful time….of the year!

       No, I’m not signing holiday songs right now.  I’m thinking politics.  I love this time of the year for South Carolina.  I love having two-dozen Democratic Presidential hopefuls passing through the Palmetto State spreading their message for the 2020 campaign.  See, doesn’t matter how you look at things politically—this is great for…

Summer in our Palmetto State….Kev Musings

Lots of controversy surrounding NY Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.  She’s brought tremendous energy to young progressives around the country.  She’s a force with a lot of young Democrats.  Her detractors call her names and think she’s an idiot.  She is not an idiot.  She’s very street-smart.  She’s not terribly well-learned on history or economics however and…

Free college? Wipe out student loans? Seriously?

      Let’s give some credit where credit is due—I like when Presidential candidates float plans and ideas.  Some are great—some are terrible.  I always appreciate substance over fluff.  Policy ideas are always a plus when you’re running for office. I’ve heard nothing from the majority of the Democratic candidates who are running.  Very…

For example—…

Say it! Say it! I dare you!

     It’s that time of the year….holiday season!  Or, dare I say it— it’s almost Christmas.  WOW!  Did you just say Christmas?  Yeah, a bad word to some people these days.  Can’t say that–might offend those who celebrate Hanukkah or Kwanzaa or Festivis.  Let me make this clear.  I’m Jewish.  I celebrate Hanukkah and that’s all. …

Pain and resilience

What’s it like when it comes to being a Jewish member of the media in Columbia, South Carolina?  It’s not really a big deal—except when something heinous like the massacre at a synagogue in Pittsburgh takes place—a synagogue that just so happens to share a name with one in our local community.  Oh, and one…
