Hey Moreduck. I'll buy the luggage if you agree to leave.

Re: “South Carolina government is built on secrecy and cynicism

South Carolina holds its 'long form birth certificate' to be the gold standard of identity proof for photographic voter identification. Yet S.C. refuses to address a blatant case of 'birth certificate fraud' comitted by officers of the court and state officials. They just ignore the fact that their fraud has been exposed, see, SC DHEC birth #139-84-037151.
I am lillycollette@bellsouth.net and I publicly attest to the truth of my statement.

Wow! You wrote 9 lines before you made your first racial comment. A new Moredock record for civility.

Re: “South Carolina government is built on secrecy and cynicism

Photo ID? Could be worst. Voters could have to pass a quiz to show they understand just what the candidates stand for. Too bad we don't have an independent candidate rating system to give voters a clue.

As to the secrecy, most of that is really a reflection of voter apathy. A lot of times people just don't take the time to get involved. Like on James Island where a very few voters gave police powers over the 12,000 citizens that were hijacked into the newly formed town to people who are not from around here. I hope they are forced to merge with the City of Charleston at an early date..

Re: “South Carolina government is built on secrecy and cynicism

Come on Will,can't you write one article and not blame everything on White folks? And why are you worried about a voting machine but not worried about who's doing the voting? We're in the 21 century. Shouldn't people be able to get a photo ID?

Re: “South Carolina government is built on secrecy and cynicism

Part of its problem is "the White population". Man,you're a riot. Really. I so look forward to your take on how EVERYTHING wrong is because of White folks. What's it like first thing in the morning and ya look in the mirror and see a WHITE GUY! "AYYYYY! I'm still White!" You're too much.Thanks for the chuckle.

I just chose to move here from Italy, and before that, California. You want to see bad government? Move to those places. At least you have a balanced budget here. This is paradise compared the predatory tax governments there.

Good summation. Question: If the people did know more things, would they care?

Re: “Mr. Potts & Me: The Power of Storytelling seeks to keep storytelling alive

It is currently available at www.amazon.com and www.eveningpostbooks.com. The book will be in stores in the next few weeks, and it is currently available in person at the Post and Courier offices at 134 Columbus St. in dowtown Charleston. Hope this helps.

Re: “Understanding violence in Charleston and in America

If Will's theory is correct, shouldn't the descendants of Holocaust survivors be some of the most violent people on earth?

Dear powers that be at the City Paper,
Please consider making Mat Catastrophe the regular liberal columnist for your publication. So far, his guest pieces have touched on a variety of topics. Since 9 out of 10 Will Moredock columns are about the same thing, wouldn't his work be better suited for publication on a monthly basis? A full page of your paper is too valuable to waste on a weekly rerun. This isn't what's meant by the term "newspaper recycling."

I look forward to reading this book in my ongoing attempt to understand a world which I can scarcely imagine. My thanks to Mr. Fordham for sharing his personal experiences with us, and to Mr. Moredock for bringing it to my attention.

Well written, Mr. Moredock. I sure wish I sat with my grandmother more often before she passed. I can only imagine the history that went to the grave with her four years ago. I'm so proud of you, Cousin Damon. Keep up the good work!

Re: “Mr. Potts & Me: The Power of Storytelling seeks to keep storytelling alive

Good job, Will. I'm glad you "get" what I was trying to do with this book. Incidentally, the "Old John" stories about slaves who outsmarted their masters were an underground phenomenon in black communites since the 1800s for obvious reasons. They were not given public exposure until Zora Neale Hurston's book"Mules and Men" (1935). They are largely forgotten today, but my Dad was of the last generation that told them, which I recalled him regaling them to his friends with vigor when I was a child.

Re: “Understanding violence in Charleston and in America

Respectfully Sir, You need to get yourself a little education on the legacies of black violence and their connections to slavery before you, as a white man, writes something like this based on the narrow perspective of public memorials left to commemorate the white planter class in rural South Carolina. I recommend Angela Davis and Michelle Alexander's writings to you if you are genuinely interested in understanding this history and the true legacies of violence they have unleashed on (not within) black communities today.
