Marine motorcycle deaths top their Iraq combat fatalities

QUANTICO, Virginia (CNN) -- Motorcycle accidents have killed more Marines in the past 12 months than enemy fire in Iraq, a rate that's so alarming it has prompted top brass to call a meeting to address the issue, officials say.  Despite crashes, Gunnery Sgt. Art Tucker rides a sport motorcycle. "I enjoy it. ... It relaxes me," he says.  Twenty-five Marines have died in motorcycle crashes since last November -- all but one of them involving sport bikes that can reach speeds of well over 100 mph, according to Marine officials. In that same period, 20 Marines have been killed in action in Iraq.

A voyage of discovery

Doc just got a longer profile. The beams of more than 200 individual sonars fired by College of Charleston students swept north from Doc's Rocks, an undersea outcropping named for their teacher, Leslie Sautter, and found that the terraced ledge just doesn't quit. It keeps running at least 11 miles from the six-mile stretch where it was first mapped in 2006, and splits out from the Continental Shelf as a narrow ridge of a shoal.

Sparky Woods and Elon highlight midseason awards

Some of our state colleges hit the halfway point of the football season last week, and some got there this week. But the time is always right for midseason awards, so here we go.

Two years ago, we had the female VMI cheerleader who put a Citadel cadet in a headlock during a sideline fracas.

The Citadel will present a live web cast of Friday's ring ceremony beginning at 1 p.m. Go to www.citadel.edu for a link to the live webcast. Sixty years ago, cadet Melvyn Sandler picked up his 1949 Citadel Class ring while the Korean War loomed on the horizon. Classmate James DeVane got his ring at the same time, but as a much older veteran student. He'd already seen fighting in World War II and served 105 days as a German prisoner of war. This week, The Citadel's Class of 2009 will get their rings — complete with melted bits of the coveted 10 karat gold bands DeVane and Sandler earned long ago. ...

Shenanigan with Princeton: Ole Citadel beats the band and wins ball game, too

Pumpkins are OK, cooler weather feels good, but true autumn ecstasy comes from one source only: football. Eager guys, their egos exploding, and their wives swarm to the gridirons every Saturday. There, the machos can get drunk on old buddies and old bragging while they watch the muscular youngsters swat, batter, crush and maul each other.  And sometimes the show is better than that. Recently, while many O-burgers spectated, The Citadel got into an all-day feud with the Ivy League Princeton (University) Tigers. It kicked off in the morning. ...

More sleep is bunk ('97 - letter to the editor)

Any change at The Citadel often receives harsh criticism from cadets and graduates who hold tradition in high regard. Sometimes the criticism is grounded. Other times, it is merely the ranting of someone upset that current cadets are getting off easy. I dislike any sentence that begins "back in the old corps," as cadets from each era face their own challenges that those from different periods don't understand.  ...

Scenes from a baseball boom

Again, the Atlanta Braves are not in the playoffs and don't bother waiting 'til next year. But aside from one of the few Smoltzless Octobers in your recent lifetime and Clemson missing the NCAA Tournament for the first time in 22 years, the 2008 season was full of highlights for players and teams with Palmetto State and Lowcountry ties.  By the numbers:

Home runs hit by former Citadel star Dallas McPherson while playing for the triple-A Albuquerque Isotopes. McPherson led all minor leaguers in homers and earned a promotion to the Florida Marlins.

The members of the 75th were not allowed entrance to The Citadel grounds for the parade. The reason given was that a VIP was present and for security reasons, tour groups were not allowed on campus. ...

Apology for band (letter to the editor)

I feel I speak for the Princeton alumni community in extending a sincere apology for our band's behavior while guests of The Citadel recently. Our band has long been notorious for irreverent nonsense. To those of us who have suffered this immaturity for years, it is boring at best. To a host school, it is a pompous insult. The antics of our band is in no fashion representative of the majority of Princeton students, its football team or its alumni. ...

Yankee (Ask Elsa column)

Q: I don't understand why The Post and Courier continues to allow the term "Yankee" to be used in letters to the editor and other sections of your paper. It is obviously being used as a pejorative. If somebody wrote a letter to the editor complaining about "N..." music played by the Citadel, I'm sure it would never have been published. You folks continue to foster this idea that the word is used "all in fun". Well, it's not. It's used as a slur and it's about time you faced up to it.

A: There is no question that some people use "Yankee" as a slur. Some people also use "Democrat" that way or "Republican" or "politically correct." Had the reference been gratuitous and clearly insulting, the editor might have omitted it.

The recent letters which have used "Yankee" have referred specifically to martial music played by the Union (Yankee) troops during the Civil War. It is akin to referring to the Rebel yell.
