Closest I've ever had to the pizza in Naples. Amazing.

Re: “What one near-fatal overdose can teach South Carolina about the need for new drug laws

Usual government over reach wasting money and time on task forces that do nothing but spend more money. MAKE THE BIG PHARMAS PAY FOR OD'S, TREATMENTS, AND OR DEATHS... the drive, motivation and release of all these senseless drugs on the street will go away real quick. All the motivation is to sell more, as there is no consequence to them, and only to the families that lose their children or spouses.

50,000 Americans died from overdose in 2015, 2/3 were from prescription drugs used incorrectly / illegally.

Re: “What one near-fatal overdose can teach South Carolina about the need for new drug laws

You don't want to discourage people from reporting someone who is in serious danger of dying. However I think in the making of a Good Samaritan law in regards to users calling 911 for users, there should be more done for them than law enforcement turning a blind eye. Confiscation of all drugs and paraphernalia with a trip to a clinic for a health check perhaps. People who are addicts and are under the influence of their poison of choice tend to not make good decisions, this good sam is a case in point. He goes to the trouble of hiding his acquaintance's syringe, etc. to protect him, when in fact it could have impeded diagnosis and treatment. The sad fact is, both men are ruining their lives.

I really agree with this article. One of the reasons we started GiftieApp.com was to allow restaurants to refer these requests our way.

Re: “Why the best year in South Carolina's filmmaking history might be its last good year

I can completely relate, as to how all of you involved in the film industry, feel . Turning back into time, mid 1990's , there were such awesome opportunities, and some lawmakers, then, challenged, and championed for the film industry to have a great life, within the arms of SC. Some, others, made some dumb mistakes and I have been sad since then.
Savannah College of Art and Design was spinning out upon avenues that SC could have/should have, and it made me -sick, that we would be seen to be- left behind.
I saw, then, the writing on the wall, of what would come from - no insight, and I thought, "HOW can this be" ! We have everything going for us, and WHY should we not be- 'out in front ' ??
Someone told me, "to have SC happen, it must be- by the people/for the people" .
I see, still, that this is true, more than ever and you all have the heart and soul driven drive, to cross that finish line- 1st!, - and I am one who hopes that you all, as SC film industry people, can unite, together, and drive those heart and soul felt dreams, slamdunk , into - reality .
I truly believe that you can.
You have more going for you, than you might realize, because, what I saw back then, still, exists, and so much more, now, today .
You have cards within your hands and you ,all, together, need to find a way to make them work for you.
Go and bring home the bacon, for yourselves, and, the people of SC.
You have the guts and gear!
and I have renewed hope!

Re: “Herb Silverman's newest essay collection suggests how we can be "good without God"

JAVSimson, you seem to be buying into the argumentum ad populum fallacy. The fact that lots of people throughout history were (and still are) superstitious is not evidence that gods are real. There is no evidence for the existence of any of the thousands of gods that people have manufactured to cover their ignorance, so there is no reason to believe.

There is as much evidence for the Tooth Fairy as there is for any god - i.e. none at all, and I'm sure you have no qualms about asserting that the Tooth Fairy doesn't exist. In fact, I suspect that you'd view an adult who professed belief in the Tooth Fairy to be delusional, despite the fact that you don't know for sure that she doesn't exist.

Why give a god more respect, when all the evidence shows that the likelihood of a god existing is infinitesimally small? Is it fear of the unknown? Fear of death? Hope for an afterlife? Because it's certainly not rational or honest to profess belief when all the evidence stands against the idea that gods are real.

Gods aren't real. Grow up!

Re: “Herb Silverman's newest essay collection suggests how we can be "good without God"

Sorry, Ian Brett Cooper, but I believe that religious agnosticism is the only honest position to take when talking about "God." Since the idea of God--or gods--seems to have been around since before human language was first recorded (in stone or bone), it's hard to know exactly what "It" (that idea) refers to. We cannot know whether or not God (or gods) exist, nor how It/they are manifested, which is the essence of agnosticism.
I'm sure that Herb Silverman's book would be a worthwhile read, regardless of your belief system.

Re: “The invisible damage done by Charleston's smoking ban

For the past few years I have had difficulty working out in yard, then in 2015 it got harder and harder to breathe. After many tests, it was a CT scan that showed COPD, emphysema and scarring in my lungs. I quit smoking 8 years ago but the damage has been done. I got to a point I couldn't catch my breath and was coughing so hard I thought the top of my head would blow off, nothing was really working to help my condition. Finally i started on COPD herbal formula i purchased from NewLife Herbal Clinic, i read alot of positive reviews from other patients who used the COPD herbal treatment. I used the herbal remedy for 7 weeks, its effects on COPD is amazing, all my symptoms gradually faded away, i breath very more freely now! (Visit www. newlifeherbalclinic. com ) I recommend this COPD herbal formula for all COPD/Emphysema sufferers

Re: “Charleston City Council gives final approval to new carriage horse heat standards

Well, when I first moved here from Manhattan, I kind of freaked when I saw those poor horses in this heat. In Manhattan, the horses by Central Park are ordered to be taken off the streets when in hits 90! And the sun is not as strong up there as it is down here. I did take a few rides here and spoke with the carriage riders and asked about how they treated the horses because I was very concerned about them. They were kind enough to explain how they rotated them and brought me to the stables and showed me how they cooled them off on a continuous basis. They get sprayed with cool water after each trip. The horses are worked for only 3 weeks at a time and then sent back up to a farm and hv 3 weeks off. However, I am glad they decided to do this new practice. Everyone had told me I would get used to the heat here. Sorry, I hv been here 9 years, and I still cannot deal with the heat here. I stay inside during the summer. It is the humidity that is the killer.

Caleb Alexander does not show up for a prepaid performance! We hired him for a birthday/family reunion and he disappointed everyone by not showing up. I don't know what he was thinking. He had no excuses and still has not returned my prepayment. Don't be disappointed, don't hire this guy!!

Re: “NIH cuts make me sick

They have theirs and are not worried about anyone else. They have the money to travel wherever they need and see whatever specialists they need to treat themselves, but to hell with those that depend on others for the same treatment. I am utterly disgusted with trump's lack of caring, among other things, of course. What these 'greedy old people' don't get is that this research may cure them one day by some, otherwise untested and un-researched, treatment for their conditions - morbid or otherwise. Their own lives are in the balance but they don't think beyond the end of their noses or bank accounts.

Re: “Charleston City Council gives final approval to new carriage horse heat standards

The paaaage of this cynical, cruel ordinance gives Charleston the dubious honor of enacting the HARSHEST temperature ordinance in the nation. The temperature gauge is located FOUR stories atop a hotel. Not where the horses work. No other City in the US requires FOUR readings.
As for the cost of the Ad, part of the Animal Society's mission is to speak out for animals when they see abuse. Surely the Counciman understands that. And while we are at it, ask the Councilman how much the City pays the Animal Society to accept stray animals off the streets of Charleston? Maybe there needs to be a course for Councilmen on City obligations met and unmet before remarks are hurled at public meetings.

Re: “Charleston City Council gives final approval to new carriage horse heat standards

To the "all those people hollering" guy: No one can address every animal situation in the world. It takes money, time and volunteers. I am a volunteer for animals at Charleston Animal Society. You can help, too, by volunteering. And you can, as an individual, make a formal complaint when you see animal neglect or abuse. It will definitely be addressed. "Saving one animal won't change the world, but it will change the world for that one animal." Do what you can to make a difference.

Re: “Charleston City Council gives final approval to new carriage horse heat standards

All these people hollering about what's best for the carriage horses just cracks me up! Why don't they holler about the fancy-pants show horses out at the big horse show on Seabrook Island every summer? Those horses come from all over & spend their days sweating bullets while they jump over huge fences at breakneck paces.
Let's not forget the cute little ponies being shown off by their cute little riders. The ponies are also sweating up a storm, as are the kids.
Now THERE'S a bunch of critters we should be looking into!
