At home with the Houstons

He's a former football player and current head coach at The Citadel. There are plenty of accolades that come with Mike Houston, including a career record of 19-2 in the conference and a runner up finish in Division II last season.  The Citadel is hoping their new head football coach is a home run hire. No matter the field for Houston, it's the same goal: molding boys into men. That's no more evident than in the back yard of his Charleston home with his family.

Citadel on Al Jazeera (Conversation with Mayor Joe Riley '64)

Here's a excerpt from the interview." ...The streets from bustling with activity when i was a child was almost dead. Many of the commercial buildings were deteriorating before your eyes. Reporter: the product of an old charleston family, a graduate of the citadel, the city's military academy. He had a brief career in law before becoming a somewhat unlikely candidate for the times. You're a white guy from an old family in the city. You were a native. There were others, afric african-americans, women, why were you the right man? Well, that was for the voters to determine. I had been to the legislature in a very young age, and i gravitated towards working on progressive issues, and working on the challenges so the african-american leadership in the white business leadership saw in me somebody who could unify the city."

Mideast needs a Marshall Plan (by Citadel professor)

It is hard for us in the West to understand how a 17th century disagreement among believers regarding leadership succession could cause so much human carnage through 14 centuries of Middle Eastern history. In 1921, Winston Churchill, aware of the thicket into which he had entered in calling for the Cairo Conference, lamented being drawn into its talons. Nevertheless, the Middle East whose creation he presided over is largely still with us.
