About F'in TIME! More schools should get a spine and report the realted crimes (rape, etc) that go hand in hand with this binge drinking...in minors!
Yes buy your bugspray. Lateral thought.
Admissions are too high when they can't even guarantee enough housing for 1/3 of the student body.
Elliotborough's been worse than usual, too. The past few weeks I've seen superbowl-weekend levels of day drinking.
Good luck with keeping admissions high.the only reason people seem to come is to party.
Cannonborough has become almost unlivable during the past few weeks and CofC is responding to the complaints in the appropriate way. Students have been passed out on the sidewalks and carted off in ambulances. Parties of THREE HUNDRED have been reported to the cops on Monday nights. Day drinking has been shut down over and over and the police can barely keep up. I commend the administration for doing the right thing.
LOL! Good luck with that.
Has this ever happened before?
We need for Congress to ante up the money to nip this in the bud. We have been financially ignoring public health in this country and the good people in health departments and the CDC are hanging on by their fingernails to protect us. We have Zika, Dengue and Chikungunya virus in the wings to cause a disaster. (Apparently we don't worry about the epidemic in Puerto Rico). The US needs to get serious about this and appropriate the money CDC and the NIAID need to manage these with 21st century tactics before its too late. But I guess we can always finger point when catastrophe hits.
Everyone was run out of tent city. Some given bus tickets. The rest of us...still in the same situation. They just pushed everyone into North Charleston. No longer the city's problem. I don't know one person that was actually housed.
Don't believe it - Charleston's not friendly enough to be a party town.
Only a mere nod after beating out FSU? Bruh, we won, top 15, lets party.
No surprise here on Graham and his "warming" to a tyrant, who is becoming more of a "sheep in wolf's clothing" second-by-second. You know the mantra....support the GOP candidate "tooth and nail" even though he is really standing for the LACK of freedoms, not unlike TSARs of bygone eras.
The GOP states they support freedoms, but their definition doesn't include freedoms for everyone, but only freedoms that support control over certain people's lives:
"Freedom FROM women's rights", "Freedom FROM immigrants", "Freedom FROM the LGBT community", "Freedom FROM pluralism" (reason USA was founded in the first place), "Freedom FROM the poor and needy" and finally, "Freedom FOR personal and corporate greed". The GOP embraces the straight, rich, caucasian (Hello out there...the GOP is using minorities along with poor and less informed supporters to collect their bounty), christian male that helps to feather their political and financial nests.
Opposite of the spectrum is the "Love thy neighbor" (Jesus' words, not mine) type of freedom supporter.
"Freedom FOR women's rights", "Freedom FOR immigrants", "Freedom FOR the LGBT community", "Freedom FOR pluralism" (reason USA was founded in the first place), "Freedom FOR the poor and needy" and finally, "Freedom FROM personal and corporate greed".
It would be such a shame if corruption and scandal is uncovered at MUSC. It's such a great hospital and does so much that's good for so many! It would just be sad....
Its the neck, always has been, always will be, at least to us from here. Don't give a rats ass what y'all want to "rename" it, we are still calling it the neck. I think I'm going to start randomly renaming stuff for no good reason too. Starting with the Market Street Area. Instead of Little Italy like NYC, it will now be known as Little Buckeye or maybe Little Toledo, how about Little Cincinnati?
For past 12 years i have heard older black folks in my neighborhood (North Central/ Huger Street....represent!) refer to this area as the the Neck. where is Murrays Meats? used to be on Rutledge where Jamals is located, but now it is up on the Neck. sometimes they say up the Neck instead of up on the neck, but regardless it is already the neck part of the Peninsula. I, too, am tired of the inventa a culture mentality pushing ut towards NoMo which is so 1980,s lamo, ya know. just my .02.
I have to agree with Ima, I never heard anyone outside of the city paper call it anything but "the neck".
Fixed, thanks. Good to hear from you again today, Ima!
"Journo Ron Aiken has stayed on reported of impropriety inside Richland County government since leaving the SC Policy Council's The Nerve and founding Quorum Columbia, uncovering new allegations that county recreation officials were selling moonshine and counterfeit electronics out of their government offices"
Perhaps, if the reporter doesn't understand sentence structure and grammar, we should hire an editor that does?
Doucheborough seems proper. :)
Keep it NOMO, or rename it Upchuck.
