Re: “The Agenda: CofC coach on thin ice; T-Rav announces campaign; NYT writer floats Riley as 'most loved'

I like old Joe most of the time, hes kinda funny and a real polished pro politician hand shaking baby kisser, but this midnight closing for some, but not all, or maybe all down the road, or maybe just selective bars but not hotels, or maybe just certain areas, or no newbies, is one of the most idiotic plans in Charleston's History of idiotic planning.

Re: “The Agenda: City cracks down on downtown rentals; Is Charleston fossil largest bird ever?

Pretty obvious the 'Pelagornis sandersi' did not become extinct due to over-hunting. So why did they disappear? Climate change?

Re: “Mayor Riley's interesting letter to the editor regarding Denzel Curnell shooting

John Monroe Branch murdered by a Des Moines Iowa police officer on a dead end street firing all his bullets from his VW RABBIT patrol car THE pistol SHOTS into the body of an unarmed man.... GIVING cops a license to kill African Americans is enshrined since the founding of the Citadel.... the modus operendi is clear, invent lies about the character of the dead victim & the murderous cops stay free of prison where more belong instead of continued wearing of police uniforms with pay.

Re: “There is still hope for new CofC leader Glenn McConnell

When the College of Charleston new President burns his Confederate uniform and begins to tell the truth about sandlappers who raped black women to sell their babies and begins to show leadership for civil rights instead of his racist Strom Thurmond traditions, then I'd let my daughter transfer from a real university to the CofC @AtheistVet Larry Carter Center exiled in Auburn, NY @Greens926_1750

Re: “Filmmakers indicted in Sarah Jones train fatality

Most parents are going to file a lawsuit if negligence led to their daughters death. Everyone knows train tracks are dangerous, and every film crew knows they need permission for every location. They don't sneak around like that and never should have had an assistant out on the bridge like that.

Re: “There is still hope for new CofC leader Glenn McConnell

So Laurin, if a CEO spoke in favor of gay marriage, and the employees/shareholders/BoD of his employer didn't agree and fired him as a result - that would be fine and just the free market at work, right? No harm, no foul?

Preach it Brewengineer! Amen Pronghorn. The God Squad is the typical self appointed direct line to God cause they're special group. Judgemental twits with no idea of real charity or compassion for their fellow man. Sorta like the footloose movie except beer. Hahahahahaha, where is Kevin Bacon when we need him.

Re: “The Agenda: CofC coach on thin ice; T-Rav announces campaign; NYT writer floats Riley as 'most loved'

If it is such a small subset then why is there an issue with letting them work and have fun until two in the morning? I have yet to meet anyone with any knowledge of what happens downtown that thinks that closing the bars and trying to end the nightlife scene in Charleston is a good idea. And if you think that is not the eventual goal you can meet me with cash for the bridge you surely will want to purchase.

Maybe it is a small subset, I don't know because it was unilaterally decided by Mayor Reilly. No vote, no presentation to the community, including the business people it affects the most, just bring it out of nowhere and spring it on everyone. If this is something that they think the community wants why not bring it up to everyone? Yes, the F&B people are the ones who are directly affected but the loss of a vibrant night life cascades through an entire community, especially an urban/tourist/college one.

But when you look at things like the thirty people who work at Charleston Beer Works who will be losing their jobs that makes a difference. And all of the other jobs that would have been created from the growth that is happening down town. But I guess you will go ahead and hire them to do something making the same kind of money that they made in the past as or at least supplement the loss of income for all of the F&B staff who's pay checks will be a lot lighter.

And I guess I can also expect you to cough up the money (or at least vote for the City to do so) to compensate the property and business owners for the loss in value of their investment.

Yeah, that's what I thought.

Re: “The Agenda: CofC coach on thin ice; T-Rav announces campaign; NYT writer floats Riley as 'most loved'

again, nofaith, no brain. Asking a minor subset of a subset of the population is not representative of general opinion, but obviously from recent comments nofaith believes his beliefs are those of the majority. Charleston ego-centricity at it's finest.

I would suggest that Mr. Bruni interview a few of the late night F&B employees and future bar owners who Riley is trying to run out of town to see just how popular he is.

He is a great guy and in a much better situation. CSU firing him shows just how shallow they are. This is what political correctness looks like from the other direction.

Re: “Charleston ranked #1 by Travel+Leisure readers, again

How many of you have at one point in your life said to yourself that you would love to visit Kyoto? I love our city and the food & bev scene that is the primary force behind its lofty rankings in most polls, but lets take it down a notch. We are not the greatest city in the world. If you really take this poll seriously, let me know how your trip to Kyoto went...

Re: “Charleston ranked #1 by Travel+Leisure readers, again

Yeah, JD, just ignore my points about industry and jobs. Also, my main point that it has nothing to do with a ranking in Travel and Leisure.

"What I'm not surprised about is that the comments mostly discuss topics not related to the article."

Not surprising at all. Completely unrelated statistics, presented in a manner that even loses sight of any real conclusion.


"I wish all these people that want Charleston to grow into some huge, sprawling city would just move to a big city now and get it over with."

Agreed. We should start a fund to help these people move to their large cities. Personally, I am hoping the growth in this area starts to die off. I just doubt that will happen.

Fuck that God Squad school that fired him. He's in a better situation now. Fact.
