I think Mr. Kearney presents an intellectually logical and appealing argument. It parallels the notion that "if men could get pregnant there would be an abortion clinic on every corner". Those of us who love equal justice find his argument superficially attractive but since we are blessed with the skill of critical thinking, we know that more guns will only lead to more killing for no good reason. I say disarm the general populace and leave the gun toting to the police and the military where it belongs. (With strong civilian oversight, of course!) Now, I shall wait patiently for the wrath of the NRA to descend upon my head...
Anybody wonder why SC was targeted? Could it be that our backwardness in keeping up with the times has rendered all the taxpayers vulnerable financially? Why didn't the SCDOR encrypt our personal data? Can you sue state gov't for putting us at risk? I'd love to have answers to these questions...
Arty - I hardly know where to begin with your nastiness! Let's start with your complete disregard of the "green" movement. I sold my car back to the dealer so that I could contribute to the clean air movement-a small gesture, to be sure, unless I motivate more people to do the same. My bike is not a "toy" or an indulgence. The people I see biking to work are not indulging a whim either. They need a way to get to work, period. And, by the way, they and I are in much better physical shape than the average American. That's a valuable side benefit of trying to save the planet. Change is here, Arty, step aside or you'll have tire tracks up your back!!!
I have been pining for many years for the appearance of macarons in my environs, as I've enjoyed them in Paris, Zurich (where they were called "Luxembourgs") and in Greenwich, CT. They were superb in all locations and now Charleston is also blessed!!! Forgive my exuberance - I am completely thrilled...By the way, the recipe can be located on Epicurious.com but using the correct technique is another story. Bonne chance!
Congratulations, Mr. Quinn, for your highly evolved sense of justice and your courage to help those so desperately in need of belonging. You are most definitely a "point of light" in Charleston and you make me proud to live here!
