Re: “Best News For Horses

Charleston is weird. The natives bitch and moan constantly about tourists and the influx of outsiders moving here. Yet say one negative thing about the carriage industry that is primarily supported by said tourists and transplants, and the natives flip out. There is no consistency of thought. Which probably explains a lot about our city's current identity crisis.

Re: “Best News For Horses

The Devil is in the Details. The lowering of the temperature requires FOUR readings before the animals are allowed off the steamy asphalt. Add to that the thermometer located FOUR stories atop a hotel where cool breezes blow. That makes Charleston's new temperature law the HARSHEST IN THE NATION. No kudos deserved here!

Not sure who T. Rav is, but it is really easy to renounce your U.S. Citizenship. For example, check out this book: http://glr.com/80ae

Re: “Best Urban Planning Decision for Traffic Jams

That may be one hell of a long sentence, but it's hardly inaccurate.

Nice touch with the cookie baking comment, though. Crawl out from under your rock much?

It could be worse, they could of consulted with Mt. P and had a few traffic circles thrown in the mix.

Re: “Best Urban Planning Decision for Traffic Jams

Well Ms. Curry may know how to use three syllable words like 'clusterfuck' and she might know how to bake cookies but she doesn't know a damn thing about city planning or urban design. Other than that, it was totally inaccurate. Great job. Sorry you had to miss so many classes in journalism school.

Re: “Best Candidate Whose Brother is a Superstar Comedian

Oh, hey. Her positions are up now. http://colbertbuschforcongress.com/issues/

And I'm totally taking credit for that until they deny that it was because of my column.

And even then, I'm taking credit for it.

Re: “Best Protest Flag

It took me eight months to figure out what that flag represented, but I did it all on my own.

Re: “Best Political Surprise

That fucker's ghostwriter writes for this joint, too.

He's a helmet as well. He's really going down with the Tea Party Ship.

Sucks to be wrong.

Which brings me to this point: if the Hell that Jim DeMint purports to believe in exists, then I hope he burns in it.

Re: “Best Future Congressman

yes too many jerks are Limboss wannabees, feeling totally entitled to unlimited sex or blaming women "objects" for saying no to their demands... this is the verbal facade to rapists, battering domestic "partners" and those who'd force a woman to stay pregnant with such jerk progeny

Re: “Best Future Congressman

What a pick -- right in the middle of the Limbaugh blow-up. I suppose he'd fit right in with all the GOP pols who preach purity and get caught with their pants down.

Re: “Best Charlestonian to Defriend

Editor alert: Correct usage in this case is "Have you ever swum...."

I agree with bill e. Grampa Joe may be getting on in years, but until a viable candidate can step forward who has a reasonable chance of accomplishing even a quarter of what Mayor Riley has for this city, I'm sticking with him.

Re: “Best Charlestonian to Defriend

maybe about time to let someone else try their hand at being mayor. it would be nice to see what just one other mayor would do, since he's been in what, 34 or so years?
however in the last 15 years, there as been a radical improvement to the downtown area, places i can go without immediate threat to my well-being, so i guess he can't be all bad.
