Around 4:30, I clocked out and did about an hour of homework before class. I'm going to The Citadel to get my project management master's.  After a three-hour class, I figure I deserve to treat myself: I call it Classy Tuesday. I don't know how I picked Classy Tuesday. I guess because I go to class and then to classy places.

Citadel Notes: Goal-line fumble painful lesson for Isiaha Smith

Citadel fullback Isiaha Smith was rambling free, breaking loose from a tackler and heading toward the end zone.  A 54-yard touchdown would have been the highlight of the freshman's young career, and would have given his team an eight-point lead in the second quarter of Saturday's game at Western Carolina. But it all went bad in the blink of an eye.

A Few People Who Will Make You Smile

An email came across my desk last week that announces The Citadel’s new Dept. of Leadership Studies and M.S. Degree in Leadership. When I was coming through, The Citadel was not an option for most Black high school graduates, although a C.A. Brown grad, Charles Foster, was its first Black cadet.

I’m proud that Army Lt. Col. Santel H. Powell, a kid right off the Cooper Street block, is among the ranks of those who followed. Guys like Charleston dentist Larry Ferguson and White House staffer Clay Middleton also are among the unsung heroes from The Citadel.

Attorney Dwayne Green, who is representing Walpole, said Thursday afternoon that Walpole did not know about the "negative connotations" of his team's ritual of smashing watermelons. Watermelons are tied to racial stereotypes that were prevalent after the Civil War that, according to Citadel history professor Marcus Cox, perpetuated the idea that African-Americans were simple-minded and inferior.
