Awesome story. Thank you for sharing your gifts, Rodney and Stacy, and many blessings on those students who were open to receiving them.

Re: “Check out TEDxCharleston's first playlist

Mat, I can see what you're saying. The TedX stories are impossible... today I got a gorgeous earful from all of these privileged yuppies talking to a room full of other privileged people about how to fix the unprivileged people's problems. It's actually the coolest thing I've heard. I started 8 months ago and straight away was bangin' my head against the wall and punching myself in the dick at a rate of 71 punches per/hr. You could do this as well.

The above comment is more useful than most TED or TEDx talks.

Re: “New Theatre Charleston head to offer a fresh point of view

I'd like to quickly clarify that I was not the founder of Theatre Charleston. While I was the organization's first employee, it was founded by 5 Charleston area theatre organizations. -Emily Wilhoit

I drove by this yesterday and saw Pigs hanging from the front. Good to know that won't be a daily happening.

Re: “Who is Southern Charm's Whitney Sudler-Smith?

I like Whitney and I think he is great fun to watch. I am actually sad he moved back to L.A. I just find that to be sacrilegious being a true southerner myself. Whitney is smart and sweet and I just wish he would show that side of himself more often. He is someone I could easily be friends with in real life. He seems like my kind of humor totally. Without him the show would be boring. He brings more than the rest of them. I simply love hearing about (what he calls)his pretentious travels. His life is fascinating to me. He gets an A ++ in my book.

Re: “A.I., space exploration, and philosophy collide in new locally-made comic

I've read the first issue. Excellent stuff by any standard. I recommend. SC has two great science-fiction writers now (the other being William Gibson).

Re: “Bill Maher wages a one-man war on bad ideas

Bill Maher has spent his entire career publicly fellating himself and pretending to be the smartest guy in the room. Just because he and I both happen to be atheists that agree on some political issues, I'm not going to pretend he is worthy of calling himself a comedian or an intellectual.

Re: “Bill Maher wages a one-man war on bad ideas

I am an atheist. At one time, I did not care about how many people believed in god.
But I've started caring.
The reason? This country is becoming more and more "Radical" Christian. Listen to the GOP debates. Everyone of them had something to say about their beliefs in god. What do their personal beliefs have to do with the government job they were interviewing for? Would someone please remind these people that we have a separation of church and state. The Rads are not going to be happy until "Freedom of Religion" becomes "You MUST be Christian".
Our country will start resembling the Islamic countries the GOP is so frightened of.
As for Bill, at his base, he is a comedienne. As Mel Brooks explains in "History of the World Part 2", Bill is a stand up philosopher who coalesces the vapors of human experience into a viable and meaningful comprehension. In other words, a bullshit artist.
Why do we look upon our comediennes as Poly-Sci majors? All they do is look around at the world, see some of the stupidity of it and write a joke. Add to that, the more they upset people with their jokes, the more press they get.
Stop looking at Maher, Colbert, Madigan and others as having anymore smarts in the political arena than we do.

Re: “Bill Maher wages a one-man war on bad ideas

"If you got offended by his material, then you obviously must think your god is so weak he would be offended by such trivial jokes."

If you believe in 'god' as the bible is written, he's a petty, jealous child.

"but the liberal hatred for anything christian is hilarious."

No, we just prefer for Christians not to be given preferential economic treatment for their fairy tale beliefs.

Re: “Bill Maher wages a one-man war on bad ideas

lol - it appears that "churches should pay taxes" is becoming one of the liberal band wagon issues. I say go ahead, have them pay, but let them deduct every charitable thing that they do. I am not religious at all, in fact I am anything but, but the liberal hatred for anything christian is hilarious. The left wants tolerance but only for things they believe in, not for things that other people believe in.

Re: “Bill Maher wages a one-man war on bad ideas

This man speaks for many libs. I'm in accordance with him on most issues especially when he thinks churches should pay taxes. Since when are churches not for profit?

Re: “Bill Maher wages a one-man war on bad ideas

Agree completely chrishaire. Bill Maher's show has devolved into a let's take an extreme position or opposition against everything. He used to be funny, now he just seems bitter and pissed off at life in general and filled with personal hate towards anyone who dares to disagree with him. Except, bizarrely enough, Ann Coulter, never would have guessed that one.

John Oliver, on the other hand, takes controversial stories, delves into them, draws some reasonable conclusions and solutions to the problem that nearly all sensible people can agree on and is funny as shit doing it. And the whole bit with him drinking Bud Light Lime was one of the funniest things on TV. Ever.
