Re: “What Charleston can learn from Burlington, Vt.'s exciting example

Thank goodness somebody committed the "ultimate faux pas." This southern not-invented-here arrogance will be our undoing. I say let's go to school on Vermont's farm-to-table experience. We'll all eat better.

Re: “David Boatwright sizes up the South for City Gallery show

What Ghiberti did for Florence, Boatwright does for Charleston. Simply wonderful!

Re: “Herb Silverman champions atheism with wit and warmth

When is the last time anyone asked if you believed in God? Never? Same here. I don't feel unsafe because I don't go to church. No one cares. Making the world safe for nonbelievers? Or gaining more spear chuckers for the cult of Herb. This latest campaign is pure narcissism and has nothing to do with peace and justice. I wish Herb almighty would give it a rest already.

Re: “Age divides the small crowd at Occupy Charleston

Chris Haire writing about older people who don't stay overnight: "You may as well be writing a rant on the internet."
Seriously? Like Haire does for the CP?

Haire quipped about MLK running out to catch a movie during the Birmingham sit-ins. MLK was only 34 during Birmingham. During Montgomery, he was a babe of 26.

So, yes, the young usually do the heavy lifting. During Vietnam, they drafted men from ages 19-25. But you know the generals weren't 19.

Your alarming prejudice against "old white people" may be socially acceptable at the CP but it should not be. It's ugly and childish. Sadly, it's also self-revealing.

Re: “Age divides the small crowd at Occupy Charleston

Revolutions are mostly a young person's game. Of course. You can't run from the water canons very well when the knee needs replacing. But young people have much to learn from those who participated in antiwar protests or marched on Washington. So I think it's a beautiful thing when older folks go out to encourage the young guns even if their arthritis causes them to go home early. Chris, open your heart and mind to the possibility of a life of generosity of spirit. That is what you witnessed. That is not depressing.
