July 2007: The month in review

After things seemed to slow down last month, as the Legislature went home and summer began, I thought things were going to slow down here in the Blogland as well. But no such luck ... your participation via visits and comments was some of the most active I've ever seen!

This month saw some very bad news, especially with the loss of Walter Whetsell's son Austin. Our thoughts and prayers remain with Walter and his family as they continue to recover from their loss. The ongoing campaigns for the State Senate special election in Berkeley County and my mock campaign for State Treasurer also stimulated a lot of reading and discussion.

As always, the month in review looks at those postings that turned you, the readers, on more than the other postings. It's the time of month where we look at what you think and what you say, and it's always interesting to see what's on your mind. This month's volume of comments was the highest ever seen around here, and we appreciate that you shared so much this month.

Here's the ten most-read postings of the month:

1) Austin Whetsell and the Whetsell family - 7/2
2) Goodbye Thomas - 7/24
3) Capps announces bid for State Treasurer - 7/30
4) Who could be - or should be - South Carolina's next Treasurer - 7/26
5) Shirley Hinson for the Senate - Do it tomorrow - 7/2
6) Attack mailing seeks to create false criminal associations - 7/4
7) GOP troubles = Democratic opportunities? - 7/18
