Alison, this is after the fact...to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. I hope to catch up with you in heaven.You have had a great life and wonderful with words. May you witness God's continious blessings on your family while you watch on in spirit.

Very Respectfully,
Dr. Karlene Ferron

Re: “The South's intentional ignorance encourages groups like the Secessionist Party

The traitors were brought back into the fold, for better or worse, with a perpetual chip on their shoulder which has been passed down to morons with access to the internet.

Re: “The South's intentional ignorance encourages groups like the Secessionist Party

Treason, you say? How many were convicted and executed for that crime in relation to the 1860 secession? Surely it must have been hundreds, or thousands?

Re: “Online campaign raises money to buy Quintin Washington new equipment

Hire Quintin. Or post his videos and pay for the rights. His interviews are wonderful. Follow him. I love how Quintin continues to prove that it's not the camera but the person behind it. Quintin is a great journalist and Charleston is lucky to have him. I hope more will seek out his work.

Can't love this anymore. Thank you Dustin for your well written story about Q - and whoever pitch this story as a cover deserves free hugs forever!

Re: “Thank you for my beautiful life

It's been four years since I left Charleston. This still broke open my chest like a cleaver.
Alison was my teacher, mentor, role model and friend. I spent a year living across the street from her. Whenever I would see her and Maybelle outside it brightened my day.
Thank you, Alison, for living extraordinarily and leaving us an immense legacy. You were one of my first heroes. Rest in power.

Yes, Cid. Assholes come from all walks of life. Treason supporters, however, are more niche.

I've never had an issue with bathroom access down there. You know how many fountains the SOBers have in their yards?

Re: “Alison Piepmeier, CofC professor and writer, dies after long battle with brain cancer

I first met Alison during the #FightForCofC movement. I've always swam against the tide, fought for what I believed in, worked in politics, etc. I originally went to USC as a cheerleader, and served in the US Navy. I still have that intense and stubborn pride to this day for both. I didn't have that for CofC when I moved back to Charleston to pursue a teaching degree... Until that movement... Until I met people like Alison. She had this glow about her. She exuded rays of positivity, and more. All of this even while battling this battle and battling another on the side. I am very saddened that we have lost such an amazing human being, but then again, I have a bit of happiness in knowing that the pain for her is gone. Rest in peace Alison! We'll see you again soon!

Re: “Alison Piepmeier, CofC professor and writer, dies after long battle with brain cancer

A huge loss for us all and a real lesson to me of how to live a life worth living. We are promised only the breath we are breathing now... Not five minutes or five days on. I think Alison understood that and lived that way: doing the things she needed to do and saying the things she needed to say. A tearful farewell and a prayer of thanksgiving for the life she lived and the love she gave!

Re: “Alison Piepmeier, CofC professor and writer, dies after long battle with brain cancer

While I didn't agree with many of Alison's beliefs, I have always respected her willingness to stand up and fight for causes she believed in. My full sympathy to her family and friends, and also to the rest of us because too often these days people are only willing to whine and complain about things. We need more Alisons with the balls to fight for everyone else

Re: “Where are the guards for the rest of the city's public restrooms?

I see both sides of the argument for public restrooms. Yes, since we're luring thousands of tourists here we should accommodate them, but, on the other hand, since the vast majority of the Tourist District is private residential is it fair to ask residents to welcome a view of public restrooms from their front porch?
As for the column, to suggest that the guard is placed there to placate SOB residents is asinine. Any serious person knows the potential horror-stories every school faces these days. Any credibility I was willing to give the columnist was wiped away by this Chris Haire attempt at smart-assery.

Re: “Where are the guards for the rest of the city's public restrooms?

It is hard to believe that after decades of Charleston doing a figurative full-court press on tourism promotion that we're still scratching our heads on the issue of restrooms. It isn't a problem that demands bleeding-edge innovation and mountains of design and testing, after all. I'm glad that people have taken up this issue seriously.

Re: “Stegelin: Bias all the way down

Trump "cusses" Gold Star families, American prisoners of war, American Generals, foreign heads of state a President has to work with, reminds 2A wackos they have violent remedies to stop Clinton (like is still alleged for Obama even after 7+ years in office) from 'taking away' their guns, legal and illegal Mexicans, Muslims, Black's who want to stop being hunted down and shot or jailed like animals, the 1st Amendment of the Constitution, encourages followers to violence and claims he'd like to "punch' dissenters at his rallies and speakers at the Democratic Nat'l Convention 'in the face", lies about Ted Cruz and his dad (the Kennedy Killer!), the Supreme Court, a respected American judge who happens to be of Hispanic descent, 50 former National Intelligence leaders, calls the Electoral System rigged, screws thousands of small and medium sized businesses out of $millions declaring bankruptcy 4 times while making $millions in profits, hires illegals to work his casinos, lies constantly, lies constantly, lies constantly, still accuses Obama of not being a US citizen (Birther, ha ha ha!) and a Muslim, dismisses the Speaker of his own Party and any GOP Senator and Congressperson who can't support his racism and misogyny, praises 2 tyrannical foreign Dictators who jail and execute dissenters, thinks women serve the nation best while on their knees making men happy, invites a foreign government to hack the computers of the leading Presidential candidates opposition Party, doesn't know Russia INVADED Crimea ... and the list goes on, BUT ...

The Clinton's stole furniture so Hillary is unfit for office!

HRC has been accused and investigated how many times (20, 30, 40?) and never been charged with any crimes. But yea, accusations prove beyond a doubt Hillary is a liar. I bet your wife cheats on you, so she must be a tramp, right? Or is that a Trump?

P.S. The House committee on government reform, led by Republican congressman Dan Burton, issued a report in 2002 that elucidated the many faults with the record-keeping processes for gifts and recommended reforms – and two items the Clintons turned in were actually returned to them in the end.

P.P.S. How many multi-million dollar GOP witch hunts, conspiracy theories, and false accusations will it take before Cheeto releases his tax returns? Yea, the rules don't apply to Cheeto. Cheeto Jesus come to save yo ass, Bro, so he gets a pass!

Re: “Stegelin: Bias all the way down

Trump cusses when he stubs his toe, and its all over the media. Meanwhile:

Wikileaks states that the DNC staffer mysteriously killed was the leak who released the emails saying they sabotaged Sanders. Very little coverage.

More emails that Hillary says never existed, released. Very little coverage.

Father of the Orlando killer seen at Hillary conference. Very little coverage.

Have we all forgotten 'Travelgate', 'Sniper fire in Bosnia', 'White house theft of $190,000', 'Whitewater scandal', 'Clinton Foundation Scandal', and the 'Tyson foods scandal'? Yeah, very little coverage.

But , no bias, I'm sure of it.
