With all the controversy over captivity and the growing opposition to confining animals to cages, concrete pools, in circuses and other forms of "entertainment"; Horse & carriage rides must be addressed as well. We had numerous incidents downtown last year and these carriage companies work these horses in temperatures above 90 degrees on a daily basis. It is a liability, it is abuse, it is a thing of the past. These carriages also add to the congestion and traffic problems downtown Charleston faces.
There is NO "appeal" or "charm" in seeing tired, extremely sad horses and burros pulling 8-12 people through the streets of downtown, gasping for a chance to breath fresh air and get AWAY from tailpipes, noise and unaware people! It is also a health issue with the urine and manure stench filling the air and spilling onto the pavement!
Time to END this and enter the 21st century! Retire these horses to GREEN, QUIET pastures!
WE ARE STILL AROUND!! CHECK US OUT!!
SMARTER BETTER FASTER STRONGER! ;)

I love the Raw Vegan Potlucks! They are a great way to learn new, healthful recipes, and I always leave feeling energetic, not stuffed. Here's a link to the event this month! http://www.meetup.com/Charleston-Veggie/ev…
Very funny show!

Mary Timony was in Wild Flag. White Flag was an early 80s group whose name was obviously cribbed from Black Flag - and the names of the members similarly took inspiration from some big name punk rock people of the day.
Yeah, i'm one of the members of this forum. As a designer of dresses from gbridal.com. I always need to search for inspirations everywhere, ESPECIALLY Forum like this one. I had good experience on meetup, to be honest.
This show has actually moved to the Terrace Theater on Maybank Highway!
