Re: “It's time to give up the carriage tour gimmick

I attended Miss Mason's School at 1 Meeting Street in 1965 and 1966. I will never forget the appropriately named Mr Wagner who was schlepping Charleston visitors by horse and carriage from South Battery at the foot of Meeting Street as he had been for years..

Re: “Charleston: The No. 1 city in the world for white people

Charleston is unaccustomed to and hates black people who defy stereotypes and know their rights as human beings. Charleston government, retailers, and grocery store managers use law enforcement to regulate segregation not enforce law. If black people in Charleston were to dine out, play tennis, surf at the beaches, go to the theaters and art gallerieses, shop at upscale organic grocers, and own and operate local events and newspapers such CCP, then Charleston would find a way to (and already does find ways to) segregate black people from those so called "white Charleston activities". Black people in Charleston weave sweet grass baskets because that is what Charleston segregates them to do. Charleston mandates that black people stay in their place as a silent beholden underclass. A commenter on this thread wrote "I grew up in West Ashley where blacks and whites lived side by side and went to school together. I remember as a child I didn't have enough money to buy something and a white man paid the difference. I've met many kind,caring and friendly white people". Well, segregation in schools is in fact illegal, a person can be racist and still give spare change to a needy black child, and it is humane, not remarkable, for human beings no matter what color they are to be kind and friendly people.

Alex Sanders holds the record for claimed birthplaces. Just ask him.

Re: “Rep. Chris Corley suspended from office after indictment on felony domestic violence and gun charges

Will he continue to serve, or be replaced with another GOP member?

Re: “Confederate flag defender Chris Corley, facing domestic violence and gun charges, called for leaders with morals

Of course I condemn violent criminal behavior like this, any normal person would. It's not a left / right thing.

"But only one political party consistently makes an effort to be hypocritical in telling other people how to live their lives while engaging in the behaviors they publicly claim to abhor."

I'm not as hung up on this party thing as you are. I see low-quality people of all political persuasions doing what you described. We've got plenty around.

Re: “Mayor Tecklenburg's honeymoon period is over

As John Tecklenburg begins his second year as Mayor, Dwayne Green's question, "Where do we go from here?," is a timely and fair one. In racial relations, the Mayor has the opportunity to make progress that's often been promised -- well before Tecklenburg took office -- but not delivered. The Illumination Project for better police-community relations was inaugurated under former mayor Riley's administration, but Tecklenburg can be instrumental in making this undertaking an action program that delivers results. As one part of IP, Police Chief Mullen is leading the way in the Charleston Police Department building a first-class, interactive website that really engages the community. We need much more data and other information about crime and prevention, and the website should be the place for the local citizenry to find everthing and use it to help develop solutions that make police and community true partners. If Tecklenburg can make the Illumination Project an action program that delivers results, he'll have gone a long way to answering Dwayne Green's New Year question.

Re: “Confederate flag defender Chris Corley, facing domestic violence and gun charges, called for leaders with morals

Way to really condemn this asshole, Cid. Domestic violence is not partisan. But only one political party consistently makes an effort to be hypocritical in telling other people how to live their lives while engaging in the behaviors they publicly claim to abhor.

It's not left or right, it's just the criminal justice system doing what it's supposed to do. If he's convicted then I hope he's punished severely.

Whenever you expose the obvious hypocrisy of a rethuglican, they start screaming "leftist rag". So I guess any "rags" that report FACTS are "leftist". So facts are "leftist" and "fake" is "right"? NOW it all makes sense!

He just seems to want to return to a time when America was great.

Jeeze Mr. Hammond, are you saying that you agree that Mr. Corley's behavior? That punching a woman in the face, pointing a gun at her and threatening her to kill her, plus allegedly cheating, is acceptable and people that don't agree are leftist? What reason do you have to try to disparage this paper? I hope you would not punch a women in the face or threaten to kill someone with that gun in your picture. Mr. Corley does not sound like a good person to me.

Re: “It's time to give up the carriage tour gimmick

"As an animal lover, I don't think horses should be used as a nostalgic practice to schlep tourists around our city for money."

Oh really? Then I guess you prefer the alternative of caring for, housing, feeding, and healing expensive horses.....the glue factory.

Re: “We owe the hospitality industry more than parking tickets

Here's a hint, genius. Park in places where it's legal and you won't get a ticket.

Works for the rest of us when we're downtown.

Re: “The Agenda: Mulvaney investments hedging against dollar?; Roof getting another competency test; Bowl time

Domestic abuse against women is the second most popular sport in the state after college football. It's really no surprise that the yokels in Aiken County are shuffling their feet on this. Just like Charleston has a brand to protect, so does Deliverance country.
