I only recently learned of it as a byproduct of reading up on the Murdaugh situation down in Hampton County, SC.
I do agree that the blogger is anything but an arms-length independent reporter presenting stories in a fair & balanced manner...
...but it doesn't change the facts that (a) the financial package given to a multi-billionaire who doesn't need to money is now a serious political hot potato in the State of SC, and (b) said package is already off the rails from a financial perspective.
It's a real story...
First off, and from the bottom of my heart, thank you for your service. Three guys on my block at home never came back. I never forget them.
I’m from Ventura, born in a small agricultural town 15 minutes away. Future Farmers of America meets Surf City, lots of orchards and flowers. Santa Barbara is close by, attracted all the big name artists and groups to perform in caravans, which meant multiple artists performing in one concert. First come, first serve. Saw the Doors, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Eric Clapton with Cream, Blind Faith, Derek and the Dominos, Delaney Bonnie and Friends, just a few off the top of my head. Wish I had kept those psychedelic posters! I got my ticket for free most of the time because I didn’t/don’t drink, never used drugs. Later I got to see SRV, Sting and the Blues Festival at the SB Bowl.
once I got to USC, you can imagine the clubs and concerts I got to see...including jazz greats like Miles Davis, Dexter Gordon and many of the Latin artists like Mongo Santa Maria, Celia Cruz, and flamenco greats like Carlos Montoya and Segovia. Those were great times. Even got to see my idol, George Harrison in a recording studio with Ringo Starr - and friends. George smiled and said “hello”, first time in my life I was speechless!
