"liberal pass time" - are you talking about football? Maybe the fourth quarter when you are way behind?
Or did you mean "pastime" (an activity that someone does regularly for enjoyment rather than work; a hobby)?
While it's nice that CBS is here and using some local folks, I think that they have forgotten that this is Charleston, not LA, and the locals that they are hiring as extras are not, in general, professional extras who are trying to break into the business, but local people with actual real jobs and families. Asking for (for example, as happened last week) consecutive "days" (nights) of 12-14 hours (with the shoot ending at 6 AM, on one of them) is simply abusing the good will of the locals. By the time they get to the last episodes they may (and probably should) have trouble filling the courtroom.
So, does this mean that the Bivens boys will only be mentioned every other week now that they are moving out of town?
Maybe they can post a Bevins Blog from Chicago?
I was astonished this week when I learned that Summerville's Regal Cinemas Movies @ Azalea Square 16 has complained to the New York Metropolitan Opera (hereafter the MET) concerning the showings of the MET operas at the Charleston County Public Library, and in fact has pressured the MET to have the Library discontinue the live screenings. I can assure you that neither I nor my family will ever set foot in that particular theatre again, and I will discourage everyone I know from doing so, as well. Additionally, you can be sure that the corporate headquarters of Regal Cinemas will be contacted, and if my research determines that this is a corporate policy of Regal Cinemas, and not merely the doings of a local manager of the Movies @ Azalea Square 16, then that prohibition against attendance will extend to the entire Regal Cinemas chain.
Perhaps the CP could follow up on this story with the manager of the theatre, who thus far I have been unable to reach on the phone.
