Letters to the Editor

Issues in Afghanistan looking vaguely familiar

After reading the front-page story about dysfunctional governance in Afghanistan, with its nepotism and cronyism, I noticed right next to it an article about our wonderful downtown Beaufort parking system. Here we have three organizations acting as bosses of the new system, all of whom receive part of the take. And, surprise, there are problems. Ironic, isn't it?

Then I flipped to the opinion page and read the editorial about a new nepotism policy in the school district. Beaufort and Afghanistan. Small world.
