Why can we not get a quote from a local legislator that disagrees with Mr. Grooms?
dp4, apparently, members of our regressive and bigoted legislature. The response of this senator is particularly telling (and disgusting) in a quote from the Post and Courier:
"State Sen. Larry Grooms, R-Charleston, an outspoken opponent of "Fun Home" being selected for the freshman reading program, said that he has heard about the play and believes it is a direct response to the House's decision to cut funds due to the college's controversial summer reading choice.
That "protest" move is not wise, Grooms said, and he plans to bring it up as the Senate debates this year's budget.
"If lessons weren't learned over there, the Senate may speak a little bit louder than the House. There would be a number of members in the Senate that would have a great interest in fixing the deficiencies at the College of Charleston," Grooms said.
He declined to say specifically what action or cuts he had planned."
SC politicians have no shame. This is a blatant threat of retribution. The idea that this neanderthal was even elected to office is a sad reflection on the state of SC. And, of course, I would doubt very much that our new fearless leader would lift a finger to defend the institution he claims to love so much.
As long as incoming freshmen aren't expected or required to attend who cares.
^^^What they said! Good one Mat.
Suck on this, right-wing theater-goers.
$15/head to see a Tony-award winning actor in a Pullitzer-nominated production? That is a steal.
That was true even "the first couple of years"
Fashion Week is so lame, went the first couple of years but now its really old. Compared to real cities fashion weeks/ its totally ametuer and a joke.
Great idea. Great name, too. I'll submit something soon, a new short story titled "The Sixth Man."
What about prosetry?
Couple things to note, please. Mark Pointer was the founder of Undefined and we co-edited it for a year or so. Also of important note -- Fall Lines is a partnership between Richland Library, USC Press, One Columbia, Muddy Ford Press, and Jasper Magazine. Thanks!
Lee is hysterical, the cat t, the scarf, the hair cut, everything....funny as it gets! I would like to see the "hipster" review everything I purchase from now on or he could just cruise around dt saying things to people like "I see fashion doesn't mean much to you" . The scooter on the Ravenel in that outfit! That took nerves of steel. His review on the camera is really factual and actually correct, the outfit and the interviews just made the point crystal clear to all the haters. Great video, great review.
Brilliant, funny + educational = I watched the whole video and I'm not even in the market for a camera! Lee & Patrick are brilliant. Love the pipe...
the mason jar coffee..
I heard him diss SC on Pandora's comic station. Played to the stereotypes. Typical. Not interested.
Only singles left in upper deck!
Thanks brandy! It was working the day after I posted that, all good.
ETimmonsP: Hope this helps.
