Re: “The frightening truth about Millennials

"Los Super Saturn" sounds like he can't adapt and is taking it out on the younger generation because he envies their ability to utilize the tools of the modern work environment, namely iPhones and social media.

When I am in my 60s and the next generation is taking over I am promising myself right now to never become like the grouchy old fogeys who b*tch and moan about Millennials.

Re: “The Agenda: Medical professionals "terrified" over abortion ban; HIV rates high among SC gay men

Why don't they just put in pay toilets? $1.00 cash to get in, $1.50 credit, or whatever price point makes sense, and the proceeds pay for the space, the maintenance, cleaning and disinfection. This is a tourist city; let's stop pretending that people never need to go to the restroom while walking around our beautiful city for hours on end, and also that it is necessarily reasonable to expect people to put in an order at a restaurant just to answer nature's call.

Re: “S.C. senators push for transgender bathroom restrictions for Berkeley students

Has anyone asked a single trans* teen if they're likely to shower nude? I don't remember a single one of my peers removing their swim clothes to rinse off or disrobing completely after gym class to shower. Sure, it's going to be a different scenario once the situation becomes intramural sports, but by that time awareness of the trans* person's situation would be disclosed.

In other words, point out a public school, with a transgender child, with enough funds to conduct a full gym class, that requires students to have a shower; also point me to the sports team which uses school shower facilities and isn't aware of a trans* person on said team.

With that out of the way, consider this: Because of the unique physiology of the transgender student, every single one of them will use a toilet stall for their necessary. Anyone "faking it" for perverted reasons is going to be forced into a very obvious position in order to attempt their felony.

Re: “In the Jukebox: The Mason Dixon Band

While I suppose lead guitarist JR might understandably be somewhat miffed about not being included in this article about the MDB CD release, what everyone reading it should know is that no one in the band with the exception of possibly the singer Roddy Akers knew anything about the write up or ever spoke to the author Patrick McGinn. It sounds like EdistoBOY is casting blame on the Clayton brothers for stealing the spotlight when neither had any knowledge of or participation in the review. The brothers contribute in equal parts to complete a solid, hard working five piece band that somehow manages to find ways to play popular songs that normally require much more instrumentation and production. EdistoBOY cannot be that much of a musician since had he ever checked the effects pedals onstage at an MDB show he would discover only electronic tuners (necessary to keep the guitars in tune), an acoustic guitar simulator (essential for transitioning to a contrasting acoustic sound when changing guitars between particular songs is not possible), and a rotating speaker effect (for creating a fuller sound on certain songs normally requiring a keyboard player) which may explain the "organ" sound lildynamite notices. As a matter of fact, JR McLeod is actually the one making more use of effects pedals (overdrive, chorus, tremolo, compressor, etc.) in this band. Seeing many MDB shows, one could never say that the rhythm player Keith Clayton ever tried to get in the way of or battle it out with the lead player. He just plays his parts and pretty much stays in his own corner, occasionally swapping to an acoustic guitar when necessary - something else apparently EdistoBOY must have missed while having a smoke outside. Roddy is a great entertainer and keeps the crowd involved, but the most experienced and professional member of the group is definitely the drummer Kevin Clayton. It is his playing style that keeps Mason Dixon from becoming "another rag-tag country band" like HOMES refers to above. Phillip is such a genuine nice guy and one of those bass players who does what bass players are supposed to do by carrying the set list of songs along without drawing that much attention to himself. Unfortunately his talent as a multi-instrumentalist and vocalist does not get utilized onstage as much as it should because of his bass playing demands. On the CD, you can definitely detect his contributions though. Speaking of the CD, there are no rhythm guitar or drumming mistakes on it, proving that the Clayton brothers are not the issue keeping JR, Phillip, and Roddy from "perfecting their music". On the other hand, there are several noticeable vocal, lead guitar, and bass trip ups so edistoBOY may want to listen more closely and reconsider which players "understand what real music is all about" the most. Having seen the more recent incarnation of the Mason Dixon Band that includes only the original singer Roddy and none of the lineup that actually recorded the music on this CD, it is quite evident who is responsible for "changing things" and having to "start all over again" - likely the result of lead-singer-ego-syndrome. This time though the change went a bit too far and what was once a popular honky tonk crowd pleasing band making country music "plain and simple" with a splash of southern rock for fun seems to have become just another sterile sounding group playing pretty much the same old rock and roll songs all the other bands in town play with a country song thrown in here and there for good measure.

As the saying goes, Republicans want the government out of your life until they don't. This whole bathroom debate is this months distraction from the real problems. It's acting as the dividing rod to yet once again pit Democrates vs Republicans and keep the real powers that be in charge.

'Now an incredibly small percentage of the population is causing millions of dollars and hours to be devoted to their personal causes.'

You're blaming the wrong group.

The christian conservative is the instigator in these instances by trying to 'protect' people from a nonexistent menace.

Re: “S.C. senators push for transgender bathroom restrictions for Berkeley students

Now the transgenders want us to refer to them as "Zees", or something like that. "How are you, Zee George", just sounds silly. The only word that comes to mind when I think "Z" is zit. Yeah, that's the ticket!

Last year this problem did not exist. Those who thought they were the opposite sex just went about their ways and did not bother anyone. If they "suffered" they did it in silence. Now an incredibly small percentage of the population is causing millions of dollars and hours to be devoted to their personal causes. I went to college with someone who was in the process of "changing". He announced his intentions to the entire class of 100+ nursing students to see how they would react. No one really cared, and we were there to learn, not judge. Maybe it was the maturity of the group, but he did just fine in school, was an active member of the group, was incredibly smart, and graduated with honors. His actions never became an issue with us. From what I understand, he made the physical change when he could afford it later on. I wish him/her well and know he/she will be rich and well rounded in later years. I only wish that the rest of this newly announced "transitionals" would shut up and leave us alone.

Ray. When you were in school, did you ever attend an "English composition" class? Or how about third grade simple English? When folks fail to use any sort of punctuation, they either are incredible stupid, or they don't want anyone to try and wade through their rants. You choose either one.
