Re: “THE GOOD FIGHT ‌ The Last Lynching

Let it be known that Willie Earl was accused NOT convicted.

You wanna know who I couldn't give a damn about? White people in general. How they fix their faces to talk about how some white people have been killed by Black thugs. Well, that's what thugs do - let's talk all the good white church folk that killed and terrorize innocent Black folk for no other reason than they were Black. But white folk need these false equivalence so their guilt doesn't eat them alive or so they may keep solid food down. Please. Read a history book on Amerikan history then we can talk about who the real animals are.

Re: “Confessions of a Southern Charm Newbie: We can all just get along

I just passed Thomas's house the other night ( driving) and it is up for sale...hmmm.I agree, thought, Kathryn should at least get joint custody. She is young. She loves those children. Thomas is a mess. So is Shep. He will end up like Thomas. And he only wants Chelsea, because Austen is into her. As soon as Austen is out of the picture, Shep will lose interest. Shep is so easy to read.

Re: “Confessions of a Southern Charm Newbie: We can all just get along

Thomas needs to grow up and get his life in order. He should see a therapist not fight for custody of the children. This is a man who's children live in the guest house with the Nanny. All his filming with the children seems fake and he always looks hung over. At least Kathryn is clean and sober. Thomas is not fooling anyone but Thomas.

Re: “Local municipalities should choose which heroes they honor

"Opinions are like belly buttons. We all have them, and they are all different." Thank you, Mr. Greene, for expressing your opinions on Memorial Day. Consider reading the news more carefully, and you will find that New Orleans has left their Confederate Monuments out by dumps and City Vehicle Depots, not in museums. Consider studying American History a little more closely, and you might find your opinions changing.

Yes, our "Civil War" was anything but civil. The Union Army buried their dead on the battlefields when they could not ship them home. They made no attempts to bury Confederate dead, much like the English at the Battle of Culloden. This was why cities and towns all across the South erected monuments to "Our Fallen Sons -" so their families would have a place to mourn and remember their loved ones. The statues of the generals in both North and South came later.

Yes, a part of our community has been held back, put down and not heard from for too long. Yes, ALL Charlestonians' opinions should be heard in polite discourse. And, yes, our history needs to be remembered, ALL of it, lest we forget.

Re: “The Agenda: Chamber leader miffed by Trump-Germany comments; Cops now taught not to shoot into cars

Trump, BMW is a German company that manufacturers domestic product that also exports back to Germany. Unlike you and ALL of your manufacturing which occurs overseas and ALL of your domestically sold products are IMPORTED. What part of dumbass don't you understand? I just answered my own question - none, since he's a dumbass.

Re: “The Agenda: Chamber leader miffed by Trump-Germany comments; Cops now taught not to shoot into cars

childish name calling by the schoolyard bully. Europe should withdraw from Nato and setup something that excludes the Americans. Yankee go home is a good thing, the US can stop using Nato to fuel their war machine and weapons sales. Tax payers can get some relief. The US should look after the US and stop sticking their nose is everyone's business and making citizens pay for wars that only the Oligarch's benefit from. Us stupid citizens get stuck with the bill. Where is the moral hazard, when the rich guys stuff their pockets and then hand the bill to the poor guys to pay! Republican and such a menace to the world and the US. G.Bush just about finished the US, trump will complete the job.

Re: “Spoleto’s premiere of 'Farnace' brings a cinematic scale to the theater

I attended Farnace last night at the Dock St Theater, my first opera since moving to Charleston two years ago. I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised by the production which featured fantastic singing, powerful dramatic acting, and exciting theatrical stage elements. I applaud Spoleto for constructing such quality performing arts in this awesome small city.

However, I do have some level of frustration with the production that I wish to share. The director, Garry Hynes, made a major gender change to the opera that seemed overly gratuitous, political, and quite honestly, not necessary. In my opinion, Ms. Hynes took too much poetic license with the love interest between Selinda and Gilade which I'm sure might have made Vivaldi take pause. Gilade, who is a captain of the Roman army, is a cast as a women in this production. She and Selina become lovers who eventually save Farnace, Tamiri, their son and bring peace and harmony back to Rome.

Regretfully, this is not the story and was literally an unnecessary adulteration of a classic that has been around for nearly 300 years. Gilade is a man (hero) and Selinda (heroine) is a woman. Major difference...hero is thus deleted and replaced by two heroines. OK...

Other than what felt like a needless LGBT agenda being forced upon us, the production was truly very good, entertaining, and quite enjoyable. Well worth attending!

Re: “The Agenda: CNN fires back at Duncan over retraction claim; McMaster praises Germans, Trump calls them "very bad"

Duncan, You should only lie when YOU are the only one who can ferret out the truth, which is NEVER. At this point, I believe if a rethug said the earth was spherical and rotates on an axis, while circling the sun; the earth would go flat, stop spinning and tumble into the sun while we all burned into a vapor.
