Re: “The history of Porgy and Bess is the history of modern Charleston

I fail to see how you could write a complete article involving the history of Porgy and Bess in Charleston without mentioning the story of Samuel Smalls, the disabled beggar whose arrest story in the Charleston News and Courier of March 25, 1924 inspired DuBose Heyward to write "Porgy and Bess" in the first place.

Re: “Bridge shutdown protest fails to materialize

Shame on these bogus "protestors" (?) and their rogue "leaders" (?). These wolf-crying frauds should be locked up for yelling fire in a crowded theater during this potentially tense time. This is a slap in the face to all of the decent Charestonians who sincerely want this case to proceed in a dignified and decent fashon and who are legitimately fighting for freedom and not for foolishness.

Re: “Kwadjo Campell: I Support Glenn McConnell

Okay, reality check time. I spoke to Mr. Campbell about all this and here are the facts. He is now in the education field with no intention to return to political office so he had nothing to gain from this endorsement. All Mr. Campbell did was express a personal opinion that was controversial and unpopular among large segments of his community. However, it sometimes requires far more conviction to speak an unpopular opinion to one's friends than to speak against one's opponents when it is popular to do so.

Re: “The League of Women Voters champions ethics reform in Columbia

Will, welcome back. Your commentary has truly been missed in these ever so dry pages these days.

Re: “Why are Florida schools moving forward and ours falling behind?

One item of major importance that is often neglected in these articles of the abysmal quality of education in South Carolina-the state's historical tendency to deliberately undereducate the masses in order to keep a supply of permanently cheap labor, which also explains its nonprogressive attitude toward unions and other items that would benefit the populace.
