Letter: Presidential transition needed to protect America

The election is over, and President Trump lost

That transition process should include briefings for President-Elect Biden  on national security and on the federal response to the pandemic, among other issues. President Trump is blocking those briefings.

The losers here are the American people.

In Bluffton everyone loves a good lie, with a twist of fabrication

In Bluffton everyone loves a good lie, with a twist of fabrication and a bit of exaggeration told by someone who can pull it off successfully. 

Bluffton Anthology is not a book about Bluffton lies or Bluffton hearsay.  

All the stories really happened. Some are remembered correctly and some are remembered as we wished they happened. 

It took seven years but we checked the facts and got everything right – at least we think we so. The big question we ask ourselves would this book pass the Chuck Hilty, Dick Jordan and Sam Dilller test?
