Great commentary! I think I would rather have you produce the storylines on the show. You have hit it ( and with my flavor of wit) like a nail on it's head. -Yo

Re: “Confessions of a Southern Charm Newbie: Season 4 Premiere

Ugh...Landon...At what point will "Southern Charm" realize she's a freaking poser and gold-digger, and her "crew" will dump her like last year's Lilly Pulitzer??? She's awful. Bit "everywhere she goes, everything is paid for", and don't forget - she hangs with "billionaires, not millionaires". Spoiled and phoney brat.

Re: “Confessions of a Southern Charm Newbie: Season 4 Premiere

If Thomas marries Landon, he'll be taking a chance all right.
There are serious emotional and mental issues and her recent past that doesn't require much digging.
It really is not surprising considering how gleefully she imparts her misery on others.
There's more to this story!

Please do not cover this show. These are awful people, and the show will exploit this beautiful city. Jersey Shore was a disaster for us, please learn from NJ's error.

Re: “Herb Silverman's newest essay collection suggests how we can be "good without God"

For anything to be real, it must be composed of atoms and neutrons and such - physical matter, that is. Gods can ONLY be imagined - and feared where Christianity is concerned.

As is so often the case, the people who would most profit from reading this book are the last people on Earth who will do so.

Re: “Herb Silverman's newest essay collection suggests how we can be "good without God"

Yes, Ron, I have read that joke before. I sure wish there would be more common ground. But many Christians are prejudiced against atheists, thinking that since an atheist is not obeying any God, he or she must be more immoral than Christians. Many would not even vote for an atheist for President, or even other offices. Though some atheists are so extreme, they think all religions are dangerous. Meanwhile in the land of my birth, which is now the Czech Republic, atheists are frequently getting elected, no problem, after all only about 20% of Czechs are still Christian. And the murder rate in the Czech Republic is much lower than here in America. True, there is more corruption in the Czech Republic, but that is because it is a poorer country than America. In general, the poorer the country, the more corruption there, because the salaries are lower, so more temptation.

Lots of common ground to be found between Christians and Atheists - they don't believe in 99% of the same gods.

Re: “Herb Silverman's newest essay collection suggests how we can be "good without God"

Ian, gods could be real. Just because I haven't seen one, and you haven't seen one, does not prove that the likelihood of a god existing is infinitely small. And if there is an afterlife, and if it is better than this life, that would be great. I would love to meet my dead relatives again, or my dead dog too.

Re: “Why the best year in South Carolina's filmmaking history might be its last good year

I can completely relate, as to how all of you involved in the film industry, feel . Turning back into time, mid 1990's , there were such awesome opportunities, and some lawmakers, then, challenged, and championed for the film industry to have a great life, within the arms of SC. Some, others, made some dumb mistakes and I have been sad since then.
Savannah College of Art and Design was spinning out upon avenues that SC could have/should have, and it made me -sick, that we would be seen to be- left behind.
I saw, then, the writing on the wall, of what would come from - no insight, and I thought, "HOW can this be" ! We have everything going for us, and WHY should we not be- 'out in front ' ??
Someone told me, "to have SC happen, it must be- by the people/for the people" .
I see, still, that this is true, more than ever and you all have the heart and soul driven drive, to cross that finish line- 1st!, - and I am one who hopes that you all, as SC film industry people, can unite, together, and drive those heart and soul felt dreams, slamdunk , into - reality .
I truly believe that you can.
You have more going for you, than you might realize, because, what I saw back then, still, exists, and so much more, now, today .
You have cards within your hands and you ,all, together, need to find a way to make them work for you.
Go and bring home the bacon, for yourselves, and, the people of SC.
You have the guts and gear!
and I have renewed hope!

Re: “Herb Silverman's newest essay collection suggests how we can be "good without God"

JAVSimson, you seem to be buying into the argumentum ad populum fallacy. The fact that lots of people throughout history were (and still are) superstitious is not evidence that gods are real. There is no evidence for the existence of any of the thousands of gods that people have manufactured to cover their ignorance, so there is no reason to believe.

There is as much evidence for the Tooth Fairy as there is for any god - i.e. none at all, and I'm sure you have no qualms about asserting that the Tooth Fairy doesn't exist. In fact, I suspect that you'd view an adult who professed belief in the Tooth Fairy to be delusional, despite the fact that you don't know for sure that she doesn't exist.

Why give a god more respect, when all the evidence shows that the likelihood of a god existing is infinitesimally small? Is it fear of the unknown? Fear of death? Hope for an afterlife? Because it's certainly not rational or honest to profess belief when all the evidence stands against the idea that gods are real.

Gods aren't real. Grow up!

Re: “Herb Silverman's newest essay collection suggests how we can be "good without God"

Sorry, Ian Brett Cooper, but I believe that religious agnosticism is the only honest position to take when talking about "God." Since the idea of God--or gods--seems to have been around since before human language was first recorded (in stone or bone), it's hard to know exactly what "It" (that idea) refers to. We cannot know whether or not God (or gods) exist, nor how It/they are manifested, which is the essence of agnosticism.
I'm sure that Herb Silverman's book would be a worthwhile read, regardless of your belief system.

Re: “Peeking behind the curtain with Charleston's illusionists

Caleb Alexander does not show up for a prepaid performance! We hired him for a birthday/family reunion and he disappointed everyone by not showing up. I don't know what he was thinking. He had no excuses and still has not returned my prepayment. Don't be disappointed, don't hire this guy!!
