    All I can say is how despicable it is to read the postings of Beck's detractors. This has nothing to do with his politics, or anything of the sort, he is on this project an American helping out other American's in this time of need. Something we should all do these days.

    But sadly, any mention of Beck, or anyone that opposes the hard left these days brings this bitter vitriol to the forefront. Tell me libs, what is it that you just can't say good for him, and wonderful for the Murphy Theater? No, you have to pull out the Sol Allensky handbook and attack him mindlessly. You should be ashamed of yourselves.

    Well he is the new leader of Al-Qaeda, so obviously this theatre is just a front for a terrorist cell.

    Jealousy breeds contempt, it seems from the posts in here. Rock on, haters... rock on.

    Nearly five months after Glenn Beck visited Wilmington and helped give local businesses a much needed cash infusion, the popular talk-show host is pulling out his wallet to help the theater that hosted him.

    Beck and his wife, Tania, recently sent a check for $51,000 to the Murphy Theatre to help repair its aging infrastructure — a five-project undertaking which is expected to cost more than $500,000.

    “I literally started crying,” said Murphy board member Leslie Keller when recalling the phone conversation she had with Beck’s representative. Keller had called to ask if Beck and his production team would donate $5,500 to the theater’s fund-raising campaign. Instead, Beck offered $40,000. “You can imagine how blown away we were.”

    But that $40,000 grew into $51,000 when the final proceeds were tallied from a home sale that Beck hosted in the run-up to his “America’s First Christmas” event in December 2010.......
    This must be in addition to money he donated to local charities back in Feb.

    There aren't any posts criticising him for his donations, I congratulate him for doing it, however, I don't see how his donations are any more important than those of any other celebrity, nor do they mitigate the fact that he is a conspiratorial nut, or that I'll take any opportunity to poke fun of anyone. A charitable act doesn't mean they're suddenly immune from criticism.

    I am just making a mockery of bitherism and all the right wing conspiracy theories I have heard about Obama...

    Oh, and btw... a lot of people thought you were defending birtherism, not attacking it with the same anger. Hypocrisy noted.

    Did I just not say it sincere enough J-mac?

    Is it a reading comprehension problem or do you purposefully get things wrong? Just curious...
