Re: “What's next after South Carolina's butt-ugly win

Overall a good analysis, and I agree that we have got to get another playmaker. And consistency at QB - last week, 4 (FOUR!) different Gamecocks took snaps in the game, not including holders on kicks. Your 295-124 points stat is a bit misleading, though. I get the point you were making about running up the score, but only one of those games was against a Power-5 opponent. Anyway, I'll be there tomorrow night sandstormin' and hoping for a good showing!

Re: “Weekend Roundup: Red, white, and blue hue

On this Fourth, I'd like to share the name of one of my favorite Patriots.
James Forten. I never learned of him in any school classroom. Which is a shame.
Maybe if people like the young racist killer had been taught this in school,
lives could have been saved. This country was built by all races.
I urge anyone, who has never heard of him to google him and learn his great American story and what he worked to do for us all.

He was born free in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
After his father died, James Forten started working at age seven to help out his mother and sister, first as a chimney sweep and then as a grocery-store clerk.
By age nine, Forten left school to work full-time. He used his early experience at work as a measuring stick for the rest of his career and life.
At the age of 14, during the Revolutionary War, Forten served on the privateer Royal Louis, captained by Captain Stephen Decatur, Sr. Upon the ship's capture by British forces, Forten's friendship with the son of the British captain who had captured the Royal Louis,Captain John Beazley, enabled him to be treated as a regular prisoner of war rather than being forced into slavery. He could have excepted freedom if he joined the British.
He was sent to the English prison ship HMS Jersey, moored in Wallabout Bay, (later the site of the Brooklyn Navy Yard). When the American Revolution began, the British used her as a prison ship for captured Continental Army soldiers, making her infamous due to the harsh conditions in which the prisoners were kept. Thousands of men were crammed below decks where there was no natural light or fresh air and few provisions for the sick and hungry. Political tensions only made the prisoners' days worse, with brutal mistreatment by the British guards becoming fairly common. As many as eight corpses a day were buried from the Jersey alone before the British surrendered at Yorktown on 19 October 1781.
James Forten was fortunate; he was able to survive seven months before he was freed in a prisoner exchange. He walked from Brooklyn to Philadelphia to his mother and sister.
His story is far from over at that point..but today, On july 4th, I wanted to post about him and reflect how he fought for our begining nation and could have excepted Freedom from the British at any point. England offered freedom to any freedman or slave who would come and join their side in the war.

This man gave it all for the place of his birth.

Re: “Freeloaders: Save your dollars

I don't think the first Friday stroll is free wine is it? Lots of the galleries on Broad serve non-alcoholic beverages only, except for during the main art walks in May/March/etc. Do you know of specific locations serving wine? Thanks!
