Campaign Coverage, Where Art Thou?

I don't think it's too early to complain about the Newsless Courier's lack of coverage of local and state elections.

Fairly soon I expect I'll see comments in the paper about voter apathy. Well, why not? Who knows his or her local candidates? Who knows where they stand on ANY issues? What ever happened to the Charleston County school board race? Is it possible that our congressmen are up for reelection as they are in the rest of the country?

The P & C seems to be doing its level best to minimize coverage and/or stick it on the back pages of the paper. Why shouldn't Scarborough's character be questioned over his behavior? Why would accusations about Ravenel the younger be buried in the back pages?

They don't want you to take an interest in the elections.

Where are our intrepid reporters? Assigned to shootings, wrecks, and fires, I guess.

Cool picture to go with this article. Is it Photoshopped?

By the way, it is Absalom, Absalom! by William Faulkner. Check your spelling in your bio.
