If ever there was a more telling example of media bias, and by implication, the bias of The Sun News it was the Nov 2 side by side headlines. The presumed election day losses for the Democratic party are explained by low turnout and “surly” voters who favor the GOP.
On the other side of the same page is the story of the Democrats focus on “grassroots and data.” How stupid must we surly voters be to vote against “grassroots and data.” How stupid must you think your readers are to not see the all too obvious slant to your stories. You make your bias simply too obvious. Needless to say, I no longer subscribe to The Sun News.
Golson actions show
strength of character
As a resident of North Myrtle Beach, as an educator, as a parent, as a person I feel we have a lot to be proud of in the young man, Everett Golson. He did what we hope every person, young or old, does when they make a mistake. Learn from it and move on.
We all covet success but it is from our mistakes we can learn the most. Kudos to you, Everett. You seem to be learning and getting better with every game. It takes a lifelong learner to make it in life.

SC voters make
I would like to acknowledge the recent election in South Carolina. I see that the voters were in agreement with the candidates. I must say it is baffling the voter support and full-throttle satisfaction and acceptance for South Carolina being No. 1 in domestic violence homicide, No. 5 in all around violent crime, rated 9th worst in poverty, 48th in annual state health ratings, 40th in social injustice, 48th in graduation rates and seventh in the top 10 states with the worst quality of life.
Moving on to what the voters supported: Gov. Nikki Haley defending the DCSS even after children died and one young female was placed with a male neighbor and raped repeatedly; failing to protect SC taxpayers from hacking, costing taxpayers millions to repair the data dump damage; roads, highways, bridges in shameful conditions, rejecting expanded Medicaid, leaving thousands of citizens without health care; South Carolina lost millions of dollars by that rejection plus all the health-related jobs that would have followed.
I will offer kudos to the winners and my sincere condolences to the losers — South Carolina and its citizens that deserve better.

Stance on border children
shows pro-life hypocrisy
Re: Aug. 25 letter from Jan Rhine, “How can those who love God turn their backs on border children?”
I agree 100 percent with your letter and you have exposed the pro-life people and how phony their argument is. They do not care at all about those who chose life, because if they did they would be for increasing SNAP benefits instead of cutting them.
They would be for expanding healthcare for all instead of refusing to except Medicaid expansion (paid for with our tax dollars). They demand that their supporters deny a woman's legal right to choose whether to give birth, even if it is not economically affordable.
We are mostly all immigrants — none of our ancestors were born here - unless you are native Americans.
