I'm proud of most parts of South Carolina and Clemson, but realistic enough to understand the shortcomings. If you don't recognize the problems, you can never fix them. #### Riley started a good thing by increasing teacher pay and starting to fix the schools. Carroll continued that and then brought in a lot of high-value industry, but almost all of the governors since have dropped the ball.
It's not directly connected, but it's frustrating to see all of the storefronts now that say "payday loans," "title loans," etc. I see sharks taking advantage of poor people when I go to SC for visits and nobody doing anything about it.
