The book is described on Amazon as a profile Washington power players who have tried to navigate the raucousness and political upheaval DC has seen in the last several years.

    Yo, this is a pretty wild video out of Charleston County, South Carolina, and it tells you a whole lot about what police officers are faced with on a daily basis. This may seem like your everyday traffic stop — the car being pulled over for swerving — however, the man in the passenger seat is a convicted felon, and officers spoke with him for about five minutes before asking him to get out of the vehicle. Here's what happened when they did that (I'm going to warn you that while you don't see blood, the perp gets smoked in...

    A gay man has sued a West Virginia party store claiming a worker branded him a 'f****t' and chased him bare-chested for trying to return a 'gender-fluid' Halloween outfit. Trevor Anderson, from Charleston in West Virginia, says he remains a shell of himself following the October 2021 incident at his local Spirit party store. Anderson claims he has turned to cigarettes to cope with the stress, and says boyfriend Jonathan Pereira has threatened to dump him over the marked change in his behavior. The drama began after Anderson purchased a plaid mini-skirt and a belly shirt for his Halloween costume,...

    Families in the 2015 Charleston, S.C., church massacre have settled with the Department of Justice (DOJ) for some $88 million over a faulty gun background check that allowed to the shooter to buy the firearm he used, the two sides announced Thursday. The DOJ said in a statement that it settled with the 14 plaintiffs in the case, awarding between $6 million to $7.5 million for each of the nine people killed and $5 million for each survivor. The survivors and family members first alleged in 2016 that FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Checks System (NICS) failed to prevent the...

They did not want the vaccine....

    One of the big COVID-19 mysteries is why some people suffer severe illness, while others experience mild colds. Research about reactive T cells produced during infection with other beta coronaviruses — which could explain a level of mitigating immunity for some people — has appeared in journals. Age certainly seems to be a significant risk factor. However, nothing to date explained all differences or provided any insight into which patients may suffer from severe disease.Now researchers at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) have found a specific and sensitive biomarker that may provide more insight:In a new retrospective study,...

    In 1760, Charleston, in what is now South Carolina, faced what was to become known as the Great Small Pox Epidemic. In a city of 8,000 people, most of whom had no immunity, smallpox spread during the early months of 1760. The Charlestonians' response was superior to the modern world's response to COVID. Most importantly, Charlestonians did not overreact, although smallpox posed a more serious threat than COVID. While COVID, on average, kills 2% of those who are infected, with the elderly and people with comorbidities at the greatest risk, smallpox killed 33% of those infected, regardless of age or...
