Dude, let it go.
My editor says that he didn't know this was a rough version of the story. Of course, I trust his judgment as to what goes in the paper and he obviously saw it fit to print.
The line about cobras in the jungle paraphrased Geshe-la's own words from an extensive interview. I'm amazed by what he's achieved after everything he went through.
This was a rough version of the article that I sent to my editor to take a look at before I cleaned it up. Next thing I knew, it was in print. I hope you enjoyed this glimpse of an in-progress story.
I commend and support Tpoygal, I could be a fan, but Nick Smith, the author - not so much. Nick, this is not a 10th Grade essay assignment. Yeah, set the mood, but come on!. I got to the line about "hearing the cobras" as he was put by his parents into a tent in the "moonlit jungle," re-read it twice, yeah, it says here he heard cobras in the moonlight, and threw the paper into the trash can. After crap like that, all I could here was the gentle hissing of a little more of City Paper's credibility leaving the building.
Geshe-la is truly an inspiration. His demeanor and wisdom brightens many a persons' day, and we could all learn alot from him.
Wow. What an amazing article. I really want to go visit. I never even knew there was a Tibetan Society in Charleston. Thank you for this article. What an inspiration.
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.

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.
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?
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
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
The City Paper----angry white men spewing venom
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!
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...
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.
Back to the era of the robber barons!
