Re: “Stranger Things and the fears and freedoms of the 1980s

The Reagan Administration was a nightmare. It's a good thing America learned its lesson and stopped electing celebrities with dementia to be in charge of the country. We might be in real trouble otherwise. Could you imagine?

Re: “Independent filmmaker explores the complex life of Denmark Vesey in 'Vesey's Resitance'

Because it would ruin such a prominent Charleston story, very little attention is given to correspondence filed in the State archives in Columbia between Rutledges and Middletons, Charleston's two most politically prominent families, that talks about framing Vesey for an insurrection to make an example.

Re: “'The Book of Mormon' takes vulgarity and hilarity on the road

If you're easily offended, see a different show. If you can handle vulgarity with your guffaws, this show is brilliant. Smart, funny and wildly entertaining. The music is catchy and the lyrics are hilarious and clever right from the first scene's "Hello"! The character development is strong and the show skillfully takes the audience through enough of a rudimentary explanation of the beginnings of Mormonism to make the jokes make sense, even to those unfamiliar with the religion. The Book of Mormon is truly a musical masterpiece, but it's worth noting again, not for the easily offended... PS. My 78 year old father loved it too. - Just sayin'

Re: “Charleston comedian Jeremy McLellan is crushing it in Pakistan

I like to think that Jeremy has the dismissal by Gellar printed out and framed because being the antithesis of what that woman believes is a great ideal to reach for any person with a functioning heart and brain.

I'm sorry he had creative differences with TEDx. He would have been a great addition to their lineup. Hearing things that make you uncomfortable isn't always bad.

Re: “How to Paint the Folly Boat

I moved down here from Long Island, New York in "78. In '81, I went fishing with my neighbor, down towards Folly, off of the docks at what is currently Crosby's, on Folly Road. In a deep water chute eastward of Crosby's, along the highway, were 2 or 3 lifeboats, and a couple other derelicts. One I noticed, was a propeller type, driven by a crank that ran the length of the boat. I believe the Folly Boat was one of these. Don't know what happened to the rest. Always wondered what ship they were salvaged from.

Re: “Artists locate missing work following City Paper story on Rebekah Jacob Gallery

As another artist ( photographer) who was represented by RJG from her first gallery on lower King Street until 54 Broad Street ( when I finally had to go and remove all of my images that I could find), I am so glad to see that the City Paper has done this excellent job of busting her cover. I have lost to her inventory around 17 images; of the ones that I removed from her space, four were rendered useless by careless damage. I can only say that the artists who were involved with her were trusting that she ran a legitimate art gallery, but who on earth really knew that she herself was an artist of a different sort--as in con artist.
One can only hope that justice will prevail- I was under the impression that her malicious, unrepentant behavior against so many in this small city would have consequences. This is my understanding of the law. Let's hope that she will lose the space on John Street soon, and perhaps relocate to Latin America.

Re: “The Artful Dodger

Wow, I have known Rebekah Jacob as a acquaintance for years, living downtown, and had heard a thing or two here and there through the grapevine, but never gave it much thought. My opinion of her just plummeted. I dont know how she can continue in this town, after this article and people researching her court cases, which I never knew of, and I'm pretty plugged in. You can bet everyone will now know to avoid her. My guess is she packs up and does her form of business in a new town bc being a lifelong downtowner, she has no future here anymore having done this to people in this town.

Re: “The Artful Dodger

Great article, well written, highlighting what appears to be the JoAnn the scammer of the Charleston Gallery world. "What were their Expectations in general"? Imma gonna take a wild crazy guess here and say to get paid in a timely fashion for work sold by the gallery as per their contract. Go figure. I love Tim Hussey and his work and applaud his decision to pull his work out. I am surprised he waited as long as he did to do so. He has such good manners. If you can buy directly from any Artist, do so, putting 100 % of the proceeds in their pockets and no money in the pockets of JoAnn.

Re: “The Artful Dodger

A lot of people in town are saying the journalist was honorable by not putting up the numerous mugshots in the article, and I have to agree.
