Bing Crosby, Marilyn Monroe and Tony Bennett are on the long list of performers who have covered the jazz standard “I’m Thru with Love.” But the songwriter, Charleston native Joseph “Fud” Livingston, hasn’t received much recognition. Now, more than 100 years after his birth, the local legend is getting some well-deserved attention, thanks in part to a notable local relative...Livingston — whose nickname came from a sister mispronouncing the word brother as “fudder” growing up — got his start as a student at The Citadel. But his education was short lived and he followed his older brother Walter “Toots” into the professional jazz world.

3. Politicians are in “Crisis,” Not the Ordinary American

Reading or listening to the mass media, it would be easy to assume that America is gripped in a major national crisis due to the words and deeds of Donald Trump in the White House. Democrats stonewall Congressional legislation and dream of impeaching Trump out of the presidency. The Republicans are in panic mode that they will lose their majorities in the House and the Senate in 2018 because Donald Trump is eating away at their credibility and legitimacy to get anything done in terms of ObamaCare, and tax and regulatory reform.

1. Citadel cadets score low on a critical-thinking exam. But there's reason to be skeptical about their results.

By any number of measures, a Citadel pedigree is a worthwhile investment. Cadets graduate from The Citadel at a higher rate than the national average. Citadel alumni outearn their peers from nearly every institution in the state. Graduates of the South's premier military college go on to medical school and law school and travel abroad on Fulbright Scholarships. Nearly a third of every class commissions as officers in the U.S. military. The Citadel's powerful alumni network is the stuff of legends. But according to at least one measure, cadets appear to stumble: On a standardized test of their critical-thinking skills, Citadel seniors have consistently performed far worse than students at the vast majority colleges that administer the exam.

9e. Nick Buoniconti shines light on CTE

The personal toll of having been a team member of the Miami Dolphins during the 1972 “Perfect Season” is proving to be a heavy one — that is, if the cognitive problems some players are suffering in later life is to blame on the tackles and the concussions sustained on the field...Buoniconti’s case is especially poignant because football has obviously been a double-edged sword in his life: The game gave him a privileged life but also left his son paralyzed. At 19, Marc Buoniconti, a Citadel football player, sustained a spinal-cord injury making a tackle. Now, the senior Buoniconti says he is facing mental deterioration for similar acts committed in the name of football.

Stan McChrystal told The Citadel's Class of 2016. For that, The Citadel covered the cost of his lodging that night: $176.66. The Citadel did the same for leading military historian Col. Cole C. Kingseed when he spoke to the school's Graduate College that same year. But for him, the military college covered both his airfare and his lodging, for a combined cost of $1,364.74. As college graduation season gets underway in South Carolina, listen to the speaker at the lectern but know this: The seemingly free advice they are giving is not totally free.
