FEEDBACK: Hollings helped stir nation to confront hunger

FEEDBACK: Hollings helped stir nation to confront hunger

Herbert J. Hartsook: ‘Thank you for drawing attention to the continuing problem of hunger.  Years ago, state senator Isadore Lourie said that Senator Hollings “put a spotlight on that issue probably as the only man in the state at that time that could have done it. …  He had the prestige and the stature and a tremendous political following in the state.  I think through that mechanism and through the force of his dynamic personality, he was able to get the conscience of South Carolinians stirred up and concerned.””

FEEDBACK:   Two views of column on special elections

Agnes Pomata: “Encouraging an effective leader to step down because she is old could be considered ageism.  The fact that we have a number of revered men in Congress who are not being targeted or asked to step down makes me wonder if there is also sexism afloat.” Also in Feedback: Al Ray.

Ravenel

FEEDBACK: Good ole boys shot themselves in the foot

P.C. Coker, Charleston, S.C. | “Pug Ravenel was probably the only Charlestonian in the 20th Century that could have made it to the White House. With his charisma, Harvard education, Wall Street connections, and Southern roots; he should have been the one to win the Presidency in 1992.”

FEEDBACK: Dems need to show up for special elections

Agnes Pomato, Wadmalaw Island: “I agree wholeheartedly that this is the time for Democrats to win in South Carolina. Everything you listed is true. But one of the most important things is to make voters aware of the candidates and the dates. We have a special election coming up in the 5th Congressional District to fill Mick Mulvaney’s vacated House seat. “

FEEDBACK:  On the right way to do business

FEEDBACK: On the right way to do business

Michael Kaynard, Charleston: I didn’t grow up using tools, power or otherwise, and took up woodworking as my retirement hobby. As I got braver, I bought bigger and more dangerous pieces of equipment. One day as I was scanning Craigslist for tools, I saw a Ridgid 4510 heavy duty portable table saw. I bought it. I knew nothing about it and after using it found out I had a lot to learn. They are dangerous and sometimes boards can kick back at you. There is an anti-kickback pawl that the previous owner had removed. Duh.. How would I know?
