Re: “Under The Sea

An excellently written and very well researched piece of consciousness raising journalism! It vividly brings home the urgency of the need for circumspect, preventive ACTION. It is amazing that immense fortunes are suddenly being made available to lubricate the gears of our failing financial System, and sickening Economy, whereas even a fraction of this wealth has been deemed too much to spend on preventing the collapse of or ecosystem and natural world, which after all IS the ONLY home we ALL share and hitherto have been able to count on inhabiting till our physical deaths, even while and after our private homes got repossessed ,burnt down or fall into ruin. Perhaps we need to reevaluate our priorities: What matters more: competitive success, monetary profit, luxury ,prestige,and socioeconomic upward mobility? Or the survival of the human race and our beloved fellow earth creatures, in a healthy, beautiful ,congenial and stable environment worth living in?
What matters more : profit or life?
If there is any doubt at all, ask people who have experienced a natural catastrophe or war.

I have visited Charleston often and traveled extensively and internationally. I reached the conclusion that Charleston is one of the most impressively beautiful and charming coastal cities in the world. Even if it should be too late to reverse the damage done to our home planet now, it would still be most worth while to invest all the money , ingenuity, and manpower possible to at least slow down the decay and premature demise of our human habitat, and to delay the destruction of such a splendid and vital city as Charleston STILL is!.

Re: “A member of the Citadel Gay and Lesbian Alliance speaks out

A very touching and eloquent report revealing the painful conflict ridden ordeal of good , capable and caring human beings, who have had to run the gauntlet for no other reason than NOT being AVERAGE. The thought of being denied the love, comfort , inspiration and bliss of a passionate, fulfilled ,safe and harmless love life, especially during the' Sturm und Drang ' physical intensity of young adulthood, makes me VERY sad. This is a tragedy which should come to an official and permanent end. Perhaps the military establishment could chose to acknowledge the reported fact that homosexual conduct and love was quite acceptable in both the Greek as well as the Roman Military Forces.
