Jan. 10 marked the first day of the 122nd session of the South Carolina General Assembly. Because this is the first year of a two-year session, we are off to a slow start in the South Carolina Senate.

And here lately, I’ve picked her up a few times. I’ve taken her to Charleston with me. I’ve taken her to… Read the rest
