I often say that when Archie speaks people listen. Again and again I hear Archie has been part of one's childhood, without Archie one's childhood would not be complete.
How does the Archie / Betty / Veronica love triangle fit into your feelings on feminism? I could not let your article go without bringing a few thoughts to light.
Betty is an all around capable, get-things-done person. She is everyone's model regardless of sex. Here at Archie we know our fans ( children & adults), be they digital subscribers, hard copy subscribers, or retail. We are proud to say we are genderless. Archie has been a brand propelled by readers worldwide, regardless of gender, beliefs, or personal preferences. All are not just welcome to the conversation, they are essential to it.
As for Veronica, I do not over look her perceived shallowness and indulgences, but she has my back. I entered the business world just 5 years ago, and quite naturally I was looking for mentors - even if they were fictional. Veronica has what I call the CIA in her - Confidence, Intelligence and Allure. Under the tutelage of her high power business tycoon father Hiram Lodge she performs well in the boardroom as well as the classroom.
Veronica and Betty have truly been trail blazers - not just for women, but for us all. They have taught us life long values. Archie, Betty, Veronica, and the rest of the population of Riverdale have endured in the hearts and minds of children of all ages because they continue to reflect the best in us. Archie and his friends and their families continue to bring a smile and an occasional tear to generation after
generation. I'm so very glad you took they time to pay a visit to my exhibit. As an Archie collector it reflects my passion and I'm proud to have it exhibited in libraries throughout the United States Thank you.

I've heard of this perfume. Good stuff.
Archie comics are some of the most enduring and best comics out there. And no, you don't have to be a kid to enjoy them. They even have a zombie themed off shoot series called the Afterlife With Archie which started in 2013. At Park Circle Comics we always have a good response when we get a new batch of Archie Comics in stock.

Rape is horrible, no one is questioning that, but why in the world would the Rolling Stone have to make up a bullshit story about it?
Fish pimp showing his incredible ability to not understand or listen to the facts if it does not fit the narrative that he is told to believe. In neither the Brown or Martin situation did the people who ended up pulling the trigger instigate a physical confrontation. In the Gardner case if he was not resisting arrest he would not have been physically brought down. The 12 year old Rice boy (5'7 and 195lbs, not very little) in Cleveland was told to put his hands up and instead pulled the BB gun (not a nerf gun) from his waistband and raised the gun, which looked like a real gun, towards the officer. To think that you can attack someone as happened with Martin and Brown, resist arrest as with Gardner or threaten an officer as with Rice and not expect some really bad consequences is foolish. All of these are tragic situations and there are people dead only because they chose to either break the law or to not listen to police.
Another rant by an activist Dilettante! As is customary here, an argument supported by unsupported personal experiences and hearsay. I do agree that sexual assault is endemic on our campuses and it's usually brushed under the rug, but dealing with it as Alison recommends seems disingenuous to me. For all the ranting and raving she does about making change, I would think she'd advocate fixing the problem. Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know... the deck's stacked against us, we don't have the power, the entrenched Administration won't budge, etc, etc, etc.
Be the advocate you paint yourself to be, hold their feet to the fire until they fix things. If you're going to condemn the status quo without trying to change it you're a hypocrite. Take the lead, force change and make it not only acceptable but favorable to report these crimes.
How to start? Instead of "Rape victims shouldn't report their assaults to campus police" Maybe a proper headline might have been " Why do the College of Charleston Campus Police condone rape?"
First, I have never been a fan of Nancy McGinley's, but in fairness to her two things must be considered: 1- Of all of the Supers that have worked for CCSD in the last 15 years only one has left on their own the rest have been fired primarily for not kowtowing to the petty politics of the School Board. Quite a pattern. 2- Before you compare McGinley's performance to projections, be sure that those projections were actually hers. From personal experience in being involved with setting performance plans for three different schools in a 10 year period I can tell you that a large part of the goals are set as minimum acceptable levels by higher-ups. To be absolutely fair, you must know if the projections were actually McGinley's or if they were forced upon her by the School Board or the State.
She was a version of the third option ("victim"): she was a scapegoat.
guess garage is the new buzz word in music
"Or, maybe blacks just commit more murders per capita? And maybe blacks are engaged in activities which result in lawful use of deadly force more often also? Maybe the two are even related?"
Yes, but if blacks are all violent criminals, why aren't more black on black shootings ruled justified homicides? The laws are inherently color blind but they are being applied in such a fashion that any black person who shoots another black person is probably a gang-banger and any white person who shoots a black person is justified because he had a reasonable fear that the black person might have been a gang-banger. It's a damned if you do, damned if you don't situation for black people.
The numbers start to get tricky when you factor in economic status and domestic violence, etc but I think we can agree that a >400% difference in justifiable homicide determinations between white on black shootings and black on black shootings is beyond what should be expected of an impartial judicial system.
"Fortunately for them the victims in the Martin and Brown situations are not the ones who ended up dead"
nofaith's notion of justice:
1. Get strapped
2. Approach a random black guy walking down the street in a hoodie or basketball shorts.
3. Pick a fight
4. Defend yourself with deadly force as soon as you start losing the fight (this fear is particularly heightened in people who are carrying guns. They fear that the gun they brought to the party might be taken away and used against them, so they act prematurely.)
5. Pretend like you are the victim to the investigators
6. Convince the grand jury (if it even goes that far) you are a coward that lost control of the situation and had no other choice to save yourself. Show pictures of some faint scratches on the back of your head or a red mark that is kind of puffy as proof your life was in danger.
You guys are smart people. I don't believe any of you would stand for this if it happened to your child. What if it was your son on the playground with his Nerf gun that was shot dead in the span of 1.5 seconds after the arrival of the police car on the scene to investigate? Or who was choked to death on the sidewalk by an officer performing a headlock that was specifically banned because it too often led to people choking to death? What if that was your child?
Kinsey, I actually agree with Robert Moss in his article. I actually love low brow food and cheap eats - when done right. I take huge pleasure in finding small places with incredible chefs doing everyday eats on the cheap all over the US and in Europe. Its like a hobby and at this point, a competition with a group of my friends. Forget the big dollar - big name restaurants, we get bored with it and have been to all of them, they open with a splash and rarely maintain momentum.
Pete Wells only appears snobby at times in print - its his job, he is pretty funny normally and not a gusher - something I like in a critic. Plus he lives in Brooklyn and his wife is a brilliant conversationalist - we adore her.
Christopher - God Help Us if Guy Fieri becomes the face of the Food Network. He can not cook...at all...ever. Hes simply a paid personality and lets face it, kinda creepy. As far as Ohio, well, thats just a Charleston thing we like to do. Oh, heres Guys New Menu for y'all. http://guysamericankitchenandbar.com/
If colleges are going to have athletics, pay them, but quit pretending that they are students.
