Re: “The biggest name in celebrity hedgehogs, Lionel, lives right here in Charleston

African Pygmy Hedgehogs have never been wild animals in North America. If you don't provide for their every little specialized need, they won't prosper.

That being said, when your hedgehog is happy with you, they will engage in many behaviors that they would not consider back in Algeria. They come out in the daylight to run on their wheels, sit on your lap, or even stroll around the yard (under close supervision).

It also varies with the personality of the hog. Some are pretty undomesticated, and would stay curled up in a tight ball if you hauled them out in the daylight.

Not being argumentative--I know you are just being concerned. I just wanted to say, that hedgehog does not look like he is under duress. Some of them turn into little 'hams!'

Re: “President Trump: Those Boeing airplanes are made in North Charleston

Is this a joke? It's perfectly normal for someone from outside of an area to refer to the name of an entire metro area.

Re: “President Trump: Those Boeing airplanes are made in North Charleston

Kinda like when people from 'up north' refer to "The Carolinas" instead of North Carolina and South Carolina. Irritating, but not really a big deal. Move on now....

Perhaps you should ban advertisers that aren't technically in Charleston City in your Charleston City paper....

Re: “President Trump: Those Boeing airplanes are made in North Charleston

He could be referring to Charleston COUNTY in which both Charleston and North Charleston are located in. While he more than likely wasn't talking about the county, and while he is an idiot, stop trying to find things to nitpick...

Re: “President Trump: Those Boeing airplanes are made in North Charleston

Perhaps you should complain to CHARLESTON AIRPORT that it's also in North Charleston. *sigh*

Oh, the humanity! Fox News (tm) attacking fake news with, GASP! - responsible and candid journalism. I congratulate Shep Smith hosting "Bizzaro-World Fox News". Twilight Zone (tm) anyone?

Excellent, the secret service and fbi will be able to photograph the subversives for their files for use at a later date and time.

Lol. A bunch of whiney protesters. Do something productive instead of wasting everyone's time. All your protests do is make you look stupid.. Why do you want to see Trumps tax returns? What would it change? Nothing. We are all watching you.

Re: “The Agenda: Sanford and Paul taking lead on Obamacare replacement; Proposal for free tech school in S.C.

Interesting. NYT and AP both put a negative in their headlines (reject/ anti-unionization) NPR has an UNBIASED approach to headlines. Maybe we should reject all mainstream entertainment media and get our news from NPR. Maybe the loss of viewership will reduce the "click-bait" headlines and ensure accurate and unbiased reporting. But "click-bait" headlines get the clicks, so to speak, thus the dollars. Money first. Facts, meh. Money FIRST, SECOND and LAST! NPR doesn't have to bow to advertisers so that eliminates the need to play favorites with politics for the viewership ratings.

Re: “Boeing South Carolina workers vote against unionizing

I just wanted them to vote yes so the uninvolved public wouldn't be harassed with the irritating onslaught of smarmy pro/ con ads for yet another year. Rinse, spit, repeat.

I'm so glad the vote went the way it did. Unions have devolved into thuggery and South Carolina is a shining example of how well things can work without them.

Re: “How a flea market tortoise became man's best friend

Cold-blooded, warm-blooded, fur, feathers, fins, scales, shells, skin & insects, whatever, all non-human animals respond/react to pleasure & pain the same as the human animal. Aside from the diversity of life, we are all one on this planet.

Re: “Why don't we call white extremists terrorists?

Atrocities by whites are on the furthest end of a continuum which begins at its least violent with racism in textbooks, continues with the systematic racism of discrimination in employment (including employment compensation, "minimum wage jobs," in other words), through racism in arbitrary stops and arrests by police, higher incarceration rates of minorities, and on to the use of violent police tactics on protesters, and finally the brutality of the Klan and other racists. The latter is part of a SYSTEMATIC form of racist brutality which has been going on since the first African was brought in chains to these shores.
This continuum is subtle in that there is not hiatus between one form of racism and the next, so that in effect, it is hard to say where terrorism really begins, if by "terrorism" you mean the commonly accepted definition of the use of fear to achieve political ends. In practice, though, ALL of these forms reinforce each other, and so focussing a single incident and labeling it terrorism is difficult to do. Especially if your myopia makes it impossible to focus.
