Re: “Watch Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton square off in the first 2016 presidential debate

ok, I'll give you that. Apparently "1 of" may mean 1 of 1000. My "their" was just referring to wording in the column. My point was: who exactly is
"they", I feel that is relevant. If "They" refers to a Yahoo columnist, that holds a lot different weight than the League of Women Voters, for example.

Re: “Watch Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton square off in the first 2016 presidential debate

Doesn't everything depend on what "their" definition is of whatever word you want to parse?

Not that it matters, but they did say "one of," which, in the company of the other things you mentioned, would indeed make it "one of" those things.

Anyway, I think I heard it from some NBC host, but my attention was flipping between the TV and Infowars on my laptop, so there was probably some hyperbole somewhere. (Depending on your definition.)

Re: “Charleston County Council calls for further study of West Ashley bike lane

I have a solution i will place flying pigs at either side of the bridge equipped with golden harnesses and bike riders can attach themselves to those pigs and be flown across the bridge. I just need council approval for a corn cob per trip payment for the pigs.
Im sure this will be approved as quickly as the bike lane.

Re: “Watch Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton square off in the first 2016 presidential debate

Who exactly is calling it " one of the biggest political events of modern political history"? And what is "their" definition of "modern history" - since 2008? I would consider a Black man elected President much bigger, or a presidential election being decided by a State Elections Committee's definition of a properly punched punch-card ballot, or half a dozen other events to be much bigger political events over the last, say, two dozen years. But then again, I forgot nothing important happened before Millenials.

to bad for the KAS they have been perfecting self entitled preppy party boy standards for decades. Such sound leadership in drinking and debauchery will be missed.

Re: “The Price is Right is coming to North Charleston

Having gone before, if you're curious to the format of the game here, the traveling show runs a little differently. Just so you know it is not a full blown version of what's on tv. They've created a more digitalized version. It's still plenty fun and they call a lot of people down to give lots of people a taste but just don't expect what you see on tv.

Re: “White nationalist group member joins Dorchester County GOP leadership

His group has ties to Dylan Roof. We should host an intervention for him regarding his oxygen habit.

a "world of pain" threatened and then never defined. pointing out the obvious is not journalism. only thing painful here is the editing.

Re: “If Charleston doesn't get real about social diversity it's going to feel a world of pain

We have an opportunity for Burke to become this high school, and there are many people already working to that end. As with any change, there are several different visions of what Burke should become. If we can get through these conversations with our shared goal in mind, we can move forward and make some big and positive changes in the lives of downtown families!

Re: “If Charleston doesn't get real about social diversity it's going to feel a world of pain

Fixing our downtown schools will be a huge help. Lifelong friendships, shared experiences, and perceptions start there. The city has recently revamped the downtown elementary schools, and there's now good diversity in them because white families with young kids aren't leaving downtown when their kids become school age. The next task - and it's a big one - is creating an academically successful and racially diverse high school with a strong athletics program. When I think back to my high school days, sports and clubs offered a chance to practice, play, travel, develop friendships with, and meet the families of people of different races. We were literally on the same team. There are no options for this to happen downtown today (aside from Buist, which is extremely hard to get I to). This challenge is a critical one to solve to bring Charleston's downtown residents together. Parents can't meet different parents of the downtown school soccer team or tennis team if one doesn't exist.

Re: “International African-American Museum to go before architectural review board next week

I'm not a fan of the design at all. This place deserves something grander than a warehouse on stilts. Charleston is overflowing with beautiful buildings, can we not have the same for this soon to be world class museum?

Re: “If Charleston doesn't get real about social diversity it's going to feel a world of pain

My friends from church here in the England sent their daughter to Charleston for a studies 3 years ago. She came back after less than a year. The reason? She could stomach the covert racist attitudes and covert practices of her fellow WHITE colleagues. In case I'm not clear SHE IS WHITE. What she reported home was distressing. Shame on you Charleston. It's 2016 not 1816!

Re: “If Charleston doesn't get real about social diversity it's going to feel a world of pain

My mother grew up in a part of downtown that was mostly white in the 50's. Then it became mostly black by the 70's (without fanfare, complaint or social justice warrior mobilization).

Now it's some sort of holocaust because it's becoming mostly white again?

All of the above happened as a function of Americans choosing where they wanted to live and selling / buying private property.

Randall, we're not censoring you. The page was probably cached and the comment just didn't load in when you checked back.
