While I appreciate Boeing's local presence (except for the free infrastructure and tax-exempt status), I have grown tired and weary of the constant barrage of tit-for-tat on the public airwaves. I, as a non-Boeing affiliated member of the public, would like to suggest we have one more vote; put to the public instead of the private yea/nay voters within the ranks of Boeing. I say we vote to ban public ads related to union voting. I, in no way, am affected by the vote except to have to deal with the unending onslaught of hateful ads. Boeing and the IAM need to keep their pleas WITHIN the walls of Boeing. VOTE ALREADY, STFU AND LEAVE THE PUBLIC OUT OF IT!
Thank You, I was unaware of this incident. While many will say not much has changed, I see articles like this and realize we have come a long way, though steps can still be taken to bring even greater equality. Racism exists on both sides, however, and we need to stop judging on the color of a persons skin, and instead judge each other based on the actions of the individual.
The allegations against Sessions were debunked long ago except for those who use the word racism ad nauseam.
Your hit and run trolling has gotten old and repetitive. Session is now you're attorney general, deal with it.
Sessions was considered too racist to be a judge in the freaking 80s. Think about that for a minute. And he had the support of Strom Thurmond. Think about that as well. Then again, if his supporters had the ability to think, he probably wouldn't be our new Attorney General.
"400 apartments at the old BiLo site and none of them affordable housing because affordable housing is a major priority, just not in my neighborhood, dammit"
These apartments are still affordable. It's just that the people who can afford them are more in tune with The Brand.
For 15 or 20 years our state has not funded its roads like N.C. and Ga. have. As a result our roads are the worst in the U.S. Now our governor wants federal funds to bail out the legislature. Unbelievable!
Fits right in with the other architecture in the neighborhood. It would probably fit better on Broad St. by the Peoples Building, a very similar eyesore.
Vito, stick to the industrial real estate you're familiar with, you're clueless when it comes to historical values.
Yep, the article was changed after a couple of comments, so I guess that says. "low-budget smartass"
I wonder how long it would have taken without the "G" hint...
And as far as a Supercompressor survey, that makes it almost as scientifically accurate as Yelp or Mashable

Everyone in the country overwhelmingly loves our state flag, because it looks like a Jimmy Buffett song.
Thanks to Brian Hicks,The Post and Courier
Too big a development with no infrastructure in place. Typical of the Beach Company pushing their desires, with their threatening tones, on to the citizens of the City. I don't support it!
Dear Tim Scott,
As a voter in your district, I urged you to vote against Betsy DeVos but you did not heed my plea. I know she has many years of caring for education but she is clearly ill-equipped and, by your own admission, has no experience that would qualify her for such an important position. Her education level is a BA in Business and Political Science, with nothing to support her abilities as an educational administrator of, not a local school district, but the entire nation of school districts.
Our local school Superintendent, Dr. Gerrita Postlewait, is woefully more qualified to serve in this post since she has a Doctorate in Education and years of experience in the educational field. Additionally, our previous Superintendent, also was a Doctor, Doctor Nancy McGinley. It is odd that our local school district requirements for Superintendent are so much higher than that of the Education Secretary.
And did you think that vouchers will hurt the poor educationally. The students that will use the vouchers are the ones whose families can afford (usually white you should be ashamed) to transport their children to schools without the benefit of public bussing. The students whose parents cannot afford to take off work and transport their child to the school of their choice will remain in the failing and shrinking schools. We need to FIX the schools, not run from the failing ones cure the disease, not treat the symptom.
So the education opportunities will continue to be limited by how much one can afford. Patently unfair. But you and your family has yours and youre covered so the poor can just pull themselves up by their bootstraps, right?
I used to support the GOP, but it was the GOP of yesteryear. Todays GOP is shameful.
Looks great. Love the concept. Will be a terrific improvement to the city.
The article was changed. Earlier, in place of that, it said "crescent moon."
All Moultrie, the creator of the flag, described it as was a "crescent."
He mentions the gorget in this piece. Don't y'all even read something before you start criticizing?
And for those of you baffled by Cid, the answer starts with "G"
btw, Cid, stopped in at Palmetto Moon at Citadel Mall when they first opened their corporate hq in the Mall and asked the significance of their name, I was told in a very condescending tone by the person in charge that, of course, it was all about the state flag.
Terrific, Cincinnati office park cica 1988
City seals (which is all this flag is) are pretty obscure and hard to get fired up about.
You should at least know, though, that we don't have a moon on our state flag.
I once said about Chris Haire: "Smartass isn't cute, smartass isn't clever, smartass is just smartass. But at least Haire knew the facts he was spoofing and could give a coherent explanation. Dustin, do you have any knowledge what the symbols on the flag historically represent, or are you just a low-budget smartass?
Who came up with the brunch / 1920's Soviet worker party flag? All it's missing is a hammer and a sickle, lol
