Westboro Bozos Spewing Hate in Charleston, WV, April 10, 2010

Wackos from the Westboro Baptist Church of Topeka, Kansas, came to West Virginia to spread their virulent anti-gay, anti-Semitic, anti-coal-miner, anti-American, anti-anything-remotely-human message. Here they regurgitate their wretched rhetoric in front of Temple Israel, a Reform Congregation in Charleston, and are met by a throng of angry but peace-loving, mostly non-Jewish, counter-protesters.

UC Building 82 Implosion – South Charleston, WV – March 28, 2009

“Nat bad. Nat bad at’all.” – Quote from 2001 Three Rivers Stadium Implosion The old Union Carbide Building 82, which was donated to the University of Charleston, was imploded to free up the site’s acreage. It was a common site seen from I-64 when driving past South Charleston. The skyline will definitely be different, but hopefully it will be a sign of progress. The 6.8-acre site will be sold by the University of Charleston. (Pay no attention to the commentating onlookers.
