It's a good thing society was never threatened with violence before internet warnings existed.
Oh man, what a battle. Elitist and self-entitled property owners vs. soulless and heartless corporation. Whoever wins, we all lose. Although I hear there is still some reasonably priced tent space up on Azalea Drive.

"A House budget committee approved a proposal to borrow $500 million"
Remember how conservatives love to say a household budget must be balanced, therefore so should the state's/country's?
The Chicken Coup
Truth 1, in defense of Kelly Rae Smith's release of the news of the Beck show, almost all major concert announcements have a specific release timing request by the promoter as to when the show is to be officially announced to the general public. Thus, the major local media outlets released the information at the same time (which you can easily see across the media landscape if you do a basic search). In fact, even Beck's own website didn't have the show listed as of the time of Kelly's post. No legitimate media outlet is going to risk getting taken off a the press release list by a promoter by releasing info prematurely. So your claim that it was announced everywhere "two days ago" seems absolutely baseless. So before you attack someone's integrity, why don't you get a clue on how the system works.
Has anyone looked at how much the state has put into other state colleges compared to SCSU? Why do we need 7 branches of USC? I am not making any apologies for SCSU, but it is pretty difficult to compete for students (particularly white students with no particular affinity for an HBCU) or dollars when the state is making a four-year college degree available much closer to home. On top of this, every county has at least one community college. Why would people contribute to an old state institution in Orangeburg when they can keep their talents and dollars close to home?
If you got your head out of your smart phone, Vijar, and went outside; you would have been better informed. I was on the street when the Popo went flying down calhoun
I guess if you like mono-chromatic, it's okay. Doesn't come across as warm and inviting; hope it is just the pictures!
"this shit's as white as wilco"
redblood, I've read a number of your posts, too, and you continually prove you're an under-educated racist idiot
Because that was absolutely a legitimate policy discussion which we should and could realistically implement.
Ah, Mat. Pretensions of serious thought, demonstrations of detachment from the real world.
this shit's as white as wilco
lynnar, shouldn't somebody who constantly wears their NYC upbringing and visits to Italy like a medal of honor at least come close to spelling Pane e Vino correctly? That said, the slide in quality at Ile Cortile Del Re over the years has been unfortunate and pretty dramatic. There are way too many incredible restaurants in this town to go back to a place after you get burned. Service has always been good in my experiences, so I'm sure their employees will be fine.
@PhilipChin: Good God man. Are you saying that you believe that all homeless people are alcoholics or addicts? I hope you're just trolling. Otherwise I have to assume you are either a heartless person or have led a sheltered life.
The view you seem to hold is one that many people believe so that they can feel better about the homeless. If homeless people deserve what they got then it's easier to avoid feeling bad about them.
I work with the area homeless at two of our local hospitals. I didn't plan to, it's just worked out that way. What I've learned, believe it or not, is that while about half are mentally ill or substance abusers (or both), about half of them are neither but have faced a perfect storm of what you might call bad luck. And yes, it is possible to have no family to fall back on. The story of these otherwise "normal" people typically involves catastrophic circumstances (an illness, a lost job while carrying too much debt, etc.) followed by months or years of trying to keep their heads above water. The loss of income, loss of a phone number, loss of transportation, loss of a place to keep your stuff, finally make it too hard to keep trying.
As far as the mentally ill homeless, their families have usually grown tired of their behavior and cut them loose. The mentally ill are hard to be around, hard to support, because, well, they are mentally ill and act crazy sometimes. Being mentally ill is not the same as being an addict. You can't blame a person for being mentally ill the same way you can for being an addict.
I guess what I want is for people to realize that this is not a clear cut situation. Some homeless are that way because of destructive choices they made but very many aren't. Some compassion is warranted and feeling bad about some homeless people is ok and doesn't make you a gullible liberal. (or whatever you're afraid you'll be if you care about others).
I'm pretty sure the panhandlers Wooten and Green referred to are the millennials I see wearing Timberland boots and Northface jackets and playing on their smartphones in between red lights, not the folks profiled in this story.
"...as long as I get to stand by the pile and decide who gets what."
Ah, conservatives. Small government talk, authoritarian action.
This was a bad renovation.
Quite bland, which isn't suited to the space as bland/neutral palettes are better for opening up a space, but the room is designed to be cozy.
The bar looks less welcoming (it appears it was changed from wood to stone).
It does little for the space, removes warmth, and character.
I hate plenty of people that look like me. In fact most people I hate do look like me. I just don't like someone just because they don't look like me. That's a very dangerous road to like someone because they don't look like you. So if this was a white school should I hate it because they look like me. Ima you are out of your friggin mind, I have seen your post before. Maybe we should raise your taxes to pay for this piss performing school with no way to be viable. Ima is a racist toward white people. And Mario, you are also a racist, who would bite the hand that feeds him. If having jobs, paying taxes, and low crime rates is acting like an animal, sign me up.
