Dorchester County famously has some pretty cheap, and pretty loud, residents. They suggest better parks and libraries will lead to poorer roads, which is just not true. They argue the “better life” is not having new amenities. How do you figure?

Some South Carolina congressmen have a point: Democrats could have launched their inquiry into an intelligence agent’s whistleblower complaint about Trump without using the term “impeachment.” And probably should have.
