Re: “Peeking behind the curtain with Charleston's illusionists

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

There has never been a valid figure for non believers and there never will be for valid reasons. (like decapitation or flaying for heretics and apostates) A goal for humanists is to find fellow men and women of like mind.

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

Excellent work, Ms. Spitz, in shedding light on this charged subject in your debut story for CCP. Your writing is refreshing, insightful, and appears to be carefully researched. I have followed your work from your previous engagement with Willamette Week in Portland, Oregon. Great to have young writers with substance, style, and class. Brava!

Congrats to Michael Campina for his outstanding photography -

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

I sure hope they smarten up and get us on par with Georgia and No. Carolina and do it quickly. There are a lot of us here whose lives depend on it. I too am in the industry and would love to see more work here for everyone. This is a non brainer. Great incentives, more jobs more revenue it really is that simple.
It brings more goodness than not.

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

"I'm agnostic. I'm one of those wishy-washy irreligious folks who doesn't quite want to claim the title of "atheist.""

Okay, so if you aren't an atheist, which god do you believe in? Because agnosticism doesn't address the issue of faith - it's about knowledge, and EVERYONE is agnostic, whether they adopt the label or not, because it's impossible to know everything about anything.

You either believe in a god, or you don't. There is no wishy-washy middle ground.

Re: “Ode to the Carmike James Island 8 movie theater

I think this was the last theater in town that you could go to for under $10. What a shame to lose this hidden gem.

Re: “Stephen King adaptation Mr. Mercedes filming downtown in Wagener Terrace

When I read that Anton Yelchin had signed on for the title role, I bought the book with the intent of finishing it before the show aired. On June 19th, 2016, I threw the book in the trash.

While I wish the cast and crew well in this project, I won't be watching it.

Re: “Mr. Mercedes spotted shooting at Little Jack's Wednesday

Anton Yelchin died last year in a freak accident. I don't think he is actually going to be in this. It's going to this guy.... http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/mr-mercedes-anton-yelchin-replaced-938203
