Howdy. We've moved from Cayce, but St. Elizabeth of South Rose Hill or Lizette de Waccamaw de Sud just don't do it for me.

Clinic Story--Washout

See Long Week, Longer Weekend, 2.

So, at 1 minute, 15 seconds into the story, there is a shot inside the church building being used for the clinic. The entire story became about layoffs at the plant--more about these folks as victims, not about anything being done to help them by state folks. Not one word.

To be fair, there was lots of talk about resilience, and that's good. I guess it doesn't have to be all about us...but how about being HONEST about what story you're here to get?!? Clinic coordinators and volunteers could have commented about on-going support for these folks...oh, well. At least we weren't blamed for the problem, like we were for the lead in the water story.
