Nothing complex about
rights of fetus, mother
Re: Nov. 9 column by Issac Bailey, “Must believing in God mean believing in the GOP, too?”
Bailey recently stated that “not declaring allegiance to pro-life rhetoric means you are pro-death and for the slaughter of babies, not that you understand there’s a complexity in an issue that includes not just a developing fetus, but a living, breathing woman who also has rights.”
How absurd. Does Bailey’s non-allegiance to pro-life rhetoric mean that he is pro-death, so that he thinks, for instance, that anyone who contracts Ebola should die? I pray he doesn’t think that way. And, there is nothing complex regarding the issue of the rights of a developing fetus versus those of a living, breathing woman. There is no issue, in fact, because the science has proven that the developing fetus has a heart beat and is breathing, so he or she has the same rights as the living, breathing woman.

Marine thankful for
treatment at eatery
Being a Vietnam vet, I took advantage of the offer from Captain Georges Seafood House in Myrtle Beach, a free buffet and non-alcoholic drink to all vets on Veterans day. I have to send out major kudos to this restaurant for the respect and class that we were all subjected to.
From the Jr. ROTC greeting us at the door upon arrival, the attentiveness of the wait staff, the graciousness and appreciation of the ladies in the gift shop right thru to being given a small American flag on our exit, they all contributed to making this a special night. There are many times in the last 50 years where I have been proud to be a Marine, and tonight at Captain Georges was one of them. God bless this restaurant for their patriotism.
Re: Nov. 14 letter from Daniel Griffin, “Maybe they could move strip clubs to Atlantic Beach”
I assume one of an editor’s duties is to determine what is fit to print. To include the article by Mr. Griffin suggesting that strip clubs and other adult entertainment sites plus girls “on the corner” presently found in other parts of Myrtle Beach be moved to Atlantic Beach to boost that town’s attendance is shameful.
Is the writer of this article implying that the present Myrtle Beach adult sites are presently frequented primarily by Atlantic Beach (black) residents? I would suggest Mr. Griffin drive by some of these sites in N. Myrtle Beach. He would find the patrons are of a much paler complexion as are most of the arrest pictures of the “corner” girls he alluded to.
Based on the facts, perhaps the sites should stay where they are to bolster the annual attendance of the Harley bikers.
