It’s probably safe to say that Carrie Trebil is the most die-hard Clemson fan I’ve ever known.
(Mary Margaret McCaskill is a close, close second).
Being that I bleed the garnet and black for which my alma mater is known, Carrie’s hatred of the Gamecocks should be reason enough for me to not really care for her.
But, unfortunately, she’s kind of one of my favorite people. Sure, we’ve had disagreements over the years, I guess.

Gov. Henry McMaster has signed a law allowing South Carolinians to obtain a driver’s license that meets federal identification requirements for boarding a plane or getting onto a military base.
The law, passed 100-3 in the House and 40-0 in the Senate, reverses a decade-old law forbidding the state from complying with the federal REAL ID Act, which Congress passed in reaction to the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks.
