Re: “Confessions of a Southern Charm newbie: Ep 8

...just found out about this column from reading comments on Vulture about the RHONY show... apparently all posters were out of their ADD meds, because as soon as SC was mentioned in an aside, the thread was overtaken by excited SC fans, one of them a big fan of yours. This show kills and I'm a southerner myself, grew up in Savannah, GA, which has its own insular population of old-money, well-connected bluebloods. These people are raised to know which family names are connected with real fortunes, a world where children have stocks and trusts set aside for them at birth. So if someone who lives like Whitney says so-and-so "has money," you can bet they do.

Re: “Bronwen Dickey delves into the battle over pit bulls

There are no bad dogs just bad dog owners. Take any animal human or otherwise mistreat it, show it no love , beat it, force it to fight, encourage its aggression and its going to be mean and lash out at any perceived threat.
We should be able to euthanize abusers of any sort.

Re: “CCPL announces finalists for director position

Don't judge on recent past experience. These individuals are highly qualified library leaders. There are more commonalities among library users across the country than there are differences and learning the differences is important for success. Today's public libraries are all about literacy - basic, early childhood, digital, cultural, information, STEAM, workforce for ALL! Something needed throughout Charleston County! Something the County Council needs to earn and support! The community certainly supported it when we voted to tax ourselves to the tune of $108M to improve, upgrade and expand library facilities to deliver the 21st century services needed to be successful in our chaotic, changing local environment. We deserve a leader who can build a team and bring the staff along to achieve this. Charleston County deserves no less than any other community in SC or the U. S.

Remember kids, no one can run your local public library system like a professional from out of state.

Well done. Good to get confirmation that they did actually say/do what we thought but couldn't believe,

Re: “Confessions of a Southern Charm newbie: The Finale

Dustin,
I hope your editors appreciate what a gem you are, or should I say a jewel? 😀 I hope you will be assigned to write recaps for the "Southern Charm" reunions. Your writing is just genius! Thanks for the serious moments, as well as the witty ones.

Re: “Confessions of a Southern Charm newbie: The Finale

Many thanks from someone sworn to never become a slave to a cable provider for the superbly stylistic writing in "Confessions" that made it possible to "shep" (pardon the metaphor) my way through this entire salacious, semi-sweet, sordid, spiritually stirring, sublime season of Southern Charm without ever having to actually watch a single show.

Please make us all staggeringly happy by sadly announcing there will be a Season 4 and queuing up Firefall's "Cinderella" for poor Thomas.

I so much enjoyed reading your column. You are very funny and witty. I have been sending to my friends in Manhattan and Palm Springs, CA. It's been a great ride.

Dustin, I am going to miss your weekly wit and wisdom. Your "voice" lifted my spirits and had me laughing out loud with your thoughts about Southern Charm.

"...you’re only a phone call away from cheesy bread"! Ha.

I'll really miss your morning after commentaries. SC is the only reality show I watch. Think if you stopped writing about them, they may not be as interesting or less cringe worthy to watch. You're fun :)

Re: “The Sick of Stupid comedy tour takes on Southern stereotypes

"In a typical set on the Sick of Stupid tour, you'll probably hear Huff talk about the person who told him science has never done anything for anyone . . . while the two of them were sitting on an airplane."

"Cash says the point of this tour is to serve as an antithesis to shows like Blue Collar Comedy tour. 'It was wildly successful, and I respect that, but I think ***it serves to perpetuate negative Southern stereotypes,***' he says."

This is like that part of the Old Testament where one verse directly contradicts the previous one, yet it's still somehow the infallible word of God or something.
