Marie is a comedienne, actress, improvisor,  singer, hostess with the mostest, and all around really lovely, funny, sweet person.  She and her husband Christopher Gregson host a BIG Oscar costume party every year.  You may recognize Marie from behind the scenes as production manager on Charlie's episode of Dish it Out!  We are really looking forward to having her join us.  Check out Marie's YouTube channel & her website!

As always, we want to hear from you as well!  Please let us know what were your favorites in this stellar group of movies last year.  Here is a list of all the nominees

Is there someone who should have been nominated, but wasn't? What was YOUR favorite movie? Do you have an opinion about the controversy with the lack of people of color being nominated?  What do you think of Chris Rock as the host?

"Here's a Thought with Charles Shaughnessy" Thursday, February 18th, 2016

Here is the link to the Video from today's show, Thursday February 18th's HERE'S A THOUGHT with Charles Shaughnessy & Janelle

IF you want to give your comments or questions to Charlie, please post them here in the blog in the comments section & they may be included in this weeks show! He will NOT be taking phone calls this week, so if you want your voice to make a difference, please post your comments or questions here!

Here are some of the current United States events that might be discussed!

1.   The death of Supreme Court Judge Antonin Scalia on February 13th and the Constitutional impact. President Obama confirms he will be nominating a replacement, as is his right, and the Republicans vehemently object.  Where do you stand on this issue?

2.  The Republican debate on February 13th which was probably the most aggressive and cutthroat Republican primary debate yet.  Did you watch it?  Do you have an opinion on the way they behaved toward each other or what was said and fought about? Do you think the debates are a useful look at the candidates or a sideshow horror?

3. CNN announced it will have back to back Republican Town Halls hosted by Anderson Cooper on Wednesday & Thursday nights this coming week where the candidates will be answering questions from the voters before they go to the polls on Saturday, the 20th. Carson, Cruz & Rubio will be in Greenville on Wednesday. Trump, Bush & Kasich will be in Columbia Thursday.

4.  The Porter Ranch Gas leak in Southern California, the toxic water in Flint Michigan. Who takes responsibility, how should this be regulated and is a punishment in order? 

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts about any of the news events of the week, that have been mentioned, or still might happen between now and Thursday, so we invite you to participate here!
