No stranger to Huntington

Now reintroducing Ed Conroy to the butterfly-shaped building that is Cam Henderson Center.  If you're a forty-something-or-older Marshall grad, a faint bell may be ringing over that name - it might be because he played for The Citadel from 1985-89, when the Thundering Herd was a perennial Southern Conference contender.

Citadel Col. Harvey Dick — tough but fair

Former cadets say Col. Harvey Dick, The Citadel's long-serving assistant commandant of cadets, was a complicated man who could hand out a tough punishment, then turn around and quietly slip a financially struggling student some money for a school ring.
Dick, a Charleston native who graduated from The Citadel in 1953, died Saturday after a short but tough battle with cancer. He was 84.

Mardi Gras (scroll down)

On Saturday, there is a special treat. It's not exactly art, but it is definitely a performance. If you have never been to a Mardi Gras Ball, this is your chance.  This year, Capt. Brian Brennan, a 2006 Citadel cadet and Army veteran, will be honored as King Charles II, and Mount Pleasant businesswoman Susan Marlowe will be crowned the new Queen Catherine of Braganza.

In 2008, Brennan was severely injured while on patrol in Afghanistan. Brennan survived, but as a double amputee. Now that he is home, Brennan is leading a fight with the "Brennan Stands Alone Foundation," which assists fellow soldiers and disabled veterans of any age who have been injured in the line of duty.

Protect cyclists (letter to the editor by former Citadel library director)

If Charleston County does not begin to protect bike riders we are going to have tragic accidents. I am passed by cars on a regular basis in 35 mile an hour zones that are doing at least 50 mph.  Your support for more bike lanes, protection of bike riders and protection of our College of Charleston and Citadel students is much appreciated.

The age-old rhetorical and theological question, "Why do bad things happen to good people?" seems to be finding itself answered more and more with, "So that good people can make bad laws."

He has mismanaged our economy, weakened our military, and apologized for America around the world. In October, I spoke at The Citadel, where patriotism is a passion. The spirit of sacrifice I found there, the love of our country and everything we stand for, only reinforces my belief that we need change in Washington, D.C., and change in the White House. I want America to be respected around the world. I want to return America to the path of greatness and I know how to bring us where we need to go.

Is Newt Gingrich's surge for real? (Cit poli sci professor Scott Buchanan interviewed)

Scott Buchanan, Executive Director of the Citadel Symposium on Southern Politics, says that at this point Gingrich is indeed the likeliest option to take down Romney, although it's still an uphill battle.  "If anybody could do it it would be Newt Gingrich, I would think," he said. "According to most of the people watching the debate, he did better than anybody else did. If he follows that with a similar performance, he might come close to Romney. But if you got a double-digit lead five days in from the primaries, you gotta convince a lot of people to change their minds."

Coincientally, I'm blogging this from the site of the original Citadel, now a mid-priced hotel, after the earlier version was, ah, undone somewhat post-1865. It was cadets from The Citadel that fired the first shots of the Civil War at Fort Sumter.

Who will fire the first shots tonight, tortured Civil War metaphor here?

Actually the cadets sounded a little "barbershop" there.

Sometimes you will hear them not-so-nicely referred to as 'country club Republicans.' But conservatives who are more worried about economic issues tend to be more upper-middle-class."

And Scott Buchanan, professor of political science at The Citadel, says “The biggest thing I’ve noticed over the last six months is that Romney never breaks above 25 percent...

East-West Shrine Game 2012: First Day Practice Report

“Try Again Tomorrow” Award—Kevin Hardy (WR, Citadel) and Tyler Hansen (QB Colorado): When Kevin Hardy caught the ball in the East practices, it was with his body. The rest of the time, he managed to drop, slap, fight and punch a lot of very catchable balls. Hardy has some nice upside as a hardworking slot receiver, but he needs to calm down and let the game come to him.

To listen to Romney is to believe they are vast. In his only major foreign policy speech of the campaign at the Citadel in South Carolina, Romney offered a stark disparity between what a foreign policy under President Romney would look like as opposed to that of President Obama, "I will not surrender America's role in the world. This is very simple: If you do not want America to be the strongest nation on Earth, I am not your president. You have that president today."

I suggest teaching underage children exactly what this coach did, as well as camp counselors at The Citadel, Catholic priests, pastors in other churches and probably hundreds more people we trust with our children.
