stress to perform their jobs. They have been too mentally stressed to perform their duties and require at least a 2wk hiatus before they can work again.

I swear the softness of young America is a little scary. I would make a liberal comment which likely is warranted since 95% media are Libs, but c'mon, this is college paper. As I recall our Tiger Rag paper was a combo of news and TMZ type news. It was as much entertaining as anything, how could college paper be to mentally stressful. What would real life work be like in today's world? Oh, let me tell ya! Be happy if you have a job because I don't and my construction company has shut down.

I wish more media would go on a 2 week hiatus. Maybe we would be able to see how the election unfolds rather than hear what “ the experts” have to say.

I may be disremembering but when I was student in the mid-late 70s, The Tiger was nationally recognized, and we read it every week. It also had a coupon for 25 cent tacos, made for an inexpensive date night.


I covered & wrote Sports for The TiGER...

OK, the Gamecocks are soft, the sky is blue, sugar is sweet and water is wet. Do they have any other brilliant conclusions? We knew that when they got the game with the Tigers cancelled in the covid-19 schedules. Any burnouts there are likely more due to what they are smoking, snorting, shooting or otherwise abusing to hide from the reality that they are Gamecocks. It is almost understandable that the shamecocks would do that. Can we even imagine the nightmare of walking the halls there seeing these garnet chickens saying claws up. Can you imagine the shame of playing their home games on what has become the Clemson playoff practice field? Can we ever know the pain of knowing their program has managed just 1 conference title in their entire history?

Look on the good side.Many of these staff members will more than likely join other Liberal Media newspapers like "The State".

properties I want to flip. His name is Fernando IV. I asked him if they call him "Quatro", and he said,"No, they call me cochino". He said it meant "Piglet", which they started calling him when he was little because he was chubby! He is now a lean, handsome young man. But anyway, the point of this is that he said he was meeting me yesterday because he made his father take a day off. His father has worked 30 days straight. It seems that in this booming economy in our area at least, that they cannot find painters to work for them. Oh, and the minimum wage is not in play. He said, unskilled painters are asking $20 per hour....Maybe one of you builders can verify.

Verified. A buddy of mine owns a trucking operation and they cannot find guys that will stay drug free for 1k a week pay. Painters, carpenters, concrete, drywall...you name it; Excellent paying jobs and yet labor shortages due to no one wanting to work as skilled craftsmen.

It’s not just a tradesman problem.

I’ve tried to get some of my employees back to work (healthcare, doctorate level) that don’t want to come back yet. Had one a couple weeks ago tell me they had a 2 week vacation planned in about a month and would need that time off...He said “I’ll come back after my vacation. “ I said, “nope.” He’ll be the last one back if I bring him back at all. Tired of this BS.

He wrote an article in the Tiger about certain people getting preferred bb tickets (it was me). I was told about the article while out on Thursday night. Steve was up all night getting the newspaper out. When he got in Friday morning his room had been moved and rearranged on the front porch of our house.

writing columns for a 3rd-rate school newspaper has proven to be "too much". Wow. Poor little snowflakes.
