Re: “THRIVE DIRECTORY

Verbena salon I wouldnt suggest unless youre looking for a disaster. The owner is horribly rude, unprofessional and ignorant. The stylist that did my hair was unqualified and there was no responsiblity taken. Also beware of hidden charges, poor attitudes, and an overall exhausting experience. This salon puts Aveda to shame.

Re: “ADDICTION ‌ The Real Thing

Coke disolves your bones. Regards, Douglas

High Fructose Corn Syrup in Coke.

Inhibits copper metabolism. Copper deficiency leads to defects in the connective tissues and arteries, and bone fragility. As one chiropractor observed, “the bodies of the children I see today are mush.” The culprit is the modern diet high in fructose and low in copper containing foods, resulting in inadequate formation of elastin and collagen, the proteins that help hold our bodies together.

Re: “A hands-on experiment to see if Four Loko is truly a threat to mankind

HenryMiller,

It's right there next to the edicts concerning fluorescent light bulbs, airbags, salt, sugar, SUV's, trans fats, tobacco products, motorcycle helmets, red meat, handguns, fireworks, charcoal grilling, All Terrain Vehicles and toilet tank capacities.

Look at the paragraph which follows the amendment titled, "Things the Federal Government can Compel you to Purchase".

Seriously, which poses a greater threat to all of us, our own foolishness, or the federal government's regulations to save us from ourselves?

Re: “A hands-on experiment to see if Four Loko is truly a threat to mankind

Four Loko is certainly no threat to mankind, but the FDA certainly is a threat to freedom. Where in he Constitution is the federal government given the right to tell us what we may or may not ingest, inject, or inhale into our own bodies?

The hype is crazy. It's not the makers fault. Folks can just add their vodka to the many energy drinks available. At least with 4 loko the amount is consistent.

People binge drink all over the world. Caffeine seems a lot tamer than a lot of other things people consume during wild nights of illicit partying. RIP 4 LOKO

Re: “A hands-on experiment to see if Four Loko is truly a threat to mankind

Maybe if our country decided to embrace alcohol as many other cultures do, and were to teach our children at an earlier age to respect the effects of alcohol, drinks of this nature would not come about as people would learn to respect taste and quality when it comes to their drinks. Instead we have a culture that frowns upon an activity the entire world partakes in and we have college kids with no idea how to consume alcohol, partaking in binge drinking and obsessing over such drinks as four loko. In what other countries would people be so foolish to even consider drinking these drinks?? I rest my case with this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rfqhrYth-dI

Will Folks find a publisher yet for his spellbinding tell-all? Nope. And credible organizations are not exactly lining up to print it.

More biased garbage from the City Paper? Shocker! You don't even need to read it to know that....I just happened to catch the title of the "article" and the "writers" name, as I was crumpling it up to start a fire in the fireplace. Thanks for the free kindling!

Re: “Despite Haley's historic election, the future is the past. Really.

factoryconnection,

We didn't stereotype all smokers, just those who have to pick between cigs and strippers (and they're likely happy we've highlighted their plight).

And, if you made it to the end, you'd see we really are hoping for the best from the Haley administration. We're just expecting the worst.

A Republican New Idea: Why not have the poor children of South Carolina become street beggers like in Haley's native country? They can languish on the sidewalks with horrid medical conditions they cannot afford to have treated and you can just step over them on the way to your Mercedes...

Re: “Despite Haley's historic election, the future is the past. Really.

Would this be considered a news article or opinion piece? If the former, congratulations on completing your Fox News Bachelor's of Infotainment degree Greg. If the latter, well it was still a bit too much opinion and slam. You stereotyped smokers, you brought up (several times) the tired campaign allegations, you talked about Sanford's affair again. I had to re-check the by-line to see if this was actually by Will Moredock. I guess you have to write something to fill the pages.

I still mock those that started calling Obama the worst president in history the day he was elected. This article is basically doing the same thing about Haley as Governor.

As one who works in industry I would say that Mexicans are just more people, you can compete with them.
It's the machines that have eliminated most of the good paying jobs. You can't compete with them, and they can't be deported.

Re: “Despite Haley's historic election, the future is the past. Really.

Scapegoating powerless groups like illegal immigrants is such a classic distraction technique. Newsflash: the reason that there's so few decent jobs and wages are depressed isn't Mexicans. Look a little closer to home (and a little higher on the economic ladder).

Re: “So I’m Marrying a Reenactor

What a beautiful article about a topic I'm barely aware of even though I've attended a couple of events at North Augusta's (SC) Living History Park. 2010's "Beneath the Crown" and "Colonial Times" created a deep desire to capture the spirit and color of these events and other similar events. DSLR camera in hand I've stalked the best images and I will find my way to sharing my vision with others, like the ninety percent of the re-enactors I photographed and met who are passionatly and intellectually tuned to their love of history.

Re: “Ambidextrous pitcher Pat Venditte really is the man in the mirror

In Thomas Boswell's book "The Heart of the Order" he has a chapter entitled "Shortstop: Don Mattingly" in which he describes Mattingly, a left hander, playing shortstop during batting practice and "firing clean, accurate, right handed pegs to first base." Mattingly also distinguished himself by playing second base and third base on a number of occasions, almost unheard of in the majors for a left hander.
