Re: “What does the conversation on climate change look like under President Trump?

The weather predictors for Hurricane Matthew couldn't even get it right a day before it came to Charleston but we're suppose to destroy our economy and throw people out of carbon creating jobs while ruining their lives because corrupt, politically motivated "scientists" and their flawed models says so?

Sorry, I don't believe it, neither do I believe in Santa and the Easter bunny.

Re: “What does the conversation on climate change look like under President Trump?

Thank you so much for writing this. I'm terribly worried about what will happen now with the selfish will of Donald Trump at the helm. I pray the rest of the world can continue to fight climate change without us as i'm quite certain we won't be participating. It's a very sad day for those who love and want to preserve the earth for generations to come. To Trump supporters, If we don't save this beautiful world, your coal mining job won't really matter.

Re: “What does the conversation on climate change look like under President Trump?

The founders got it right. ALL states deserve consideration when electing the president. Were we to move to using the popular vote only, a candidate could campaign in the ten largest metro areas of the country ONLY with no regard whatsoever for the entirety of the rest of America and win.

Re: “What does the conversation on climate change look like under President Trump?

Which Trump supporter was not born to a woman, married a woman, has a daughter or a sense of justice regarding sexual assault. By no means a HRC supporter but as a man cannot understand looking the other way regarding a crime against a woman.

Re: “What does the conversation on climate change look like under President Trump?

No matter who the president was to be; Hillary or Trump, the issue with East Bay and other Charleston streets, is a municipal issue, not a national one. Whenever you live in a city that is essentially below sea level, flooding will be a problem. The street level is actually much higher now than it was when the city was founded. Take a tour of the Exchange bldg (Where George Washington once spent the night) and get to the warehouse level that used to be open for deliveries, and note that it is now below street level.

So you live "on a street carved out of a coastal forest in the early 1970s" and you still get the print edition of the daily paper. Please do not lecture me.

Re: “Meet some of the makers at this Saturday's Buy Local Block Party

The $10 is a fundraiser for a non profit group - something Connelly completely forgot to mention-oops. They should've mentioned this and told y'all a little bit about this fantastic group, whose own Jamee Haley won the 2016 South Carolina Ambassador for Economic Development. This group is really trying to do something for our small business owners. Instead of lamenting the loss of all our small Mom and Pop businesses we should all be turning out in droves for this event. Do your Holiday shopping early, get it done this weekend. Also of utmost importance to me....will The Cake Farmer be there? Just look at that cake.... a work of art and those pies.....

Re: “What does the conversation on climate change look like under President Trump?

Off topic but......At least we know that a hair more than 50% of the American voting population is not deplorable - HRC carried the popular vote with the electoral college thingy snatching the Presidency away. This is a sad commentary when bigotry and divisiveness wins out over love, inclusiveness, dignity and sanity. Get ready all non-bigots for they are coming after us. Welcome to the Divided States of America!

Re: “Competency evaluation delays trial of Dylann Roof

I have trouble calling Dylan Roof a Christian. Someone willing to walk into a house of God and kill 9 people is obviously not Christian. I would bet that most White Christians would be right up there with you in saying he deserved the death penalty for his crime, should the court give him that sentence.

No legit benefit to killing this person? I have yet to see a convicted murderer who has been executed go out and kill another person afterward. It may not be a deterrent, but it stops the behavior.

It is too costly? The cost is due to the legal wrangling that goes on the entire time the criminal is on death row. The actual cost of the execution is not much at all. However, consider that many who have had their death sentence drop, still serve their lives behind bars. A persons best chance of exoneration is while they are on death row, not while sitting in jail for life. Once off death row, their case is generally forgotten (hence the lower cost).

We get it wrong too often? The rate of wrongful conviction is something like .027% While 1 wrongful execution is terrible, it does not nullify the punishment being appropriate for those who deserve it. Estimates of wrongful execution range from .027% to 4.1% Looking at the highest value, this amounts to about 75 wrongful executions since 1973 or 1.6 per year. The assumption that the executed was ENTIRELY innocent, is untrue, as many supposedly 'innocent' people have been in and out of prison their entire lives. Further, many 'experts' have reviewed execution cases and deemed them innocent without benefit of an actual official review of the case in the hopes of supporting their view of executions being wrong (essentially a jury of 1), and usually despite the convicted having several times being convicted of the same crime prior to the actual execution being carrier out by a jury of 12.

Re: “DeSano Pizza Bakery shutters Stuart Street location indefinitely

Well dang! We recently went there after having it at the airport. I thought it was the best pizza in Charleston! They do need a better location, though.

If you want us to buy local why charge us to get in this event. I could spend that $ on a local vendor at the event.

Re: “Belle Du Seigneur

Perhaps Jonatha Rhys has been much better of an actor
in others movies. However, I felt he played his role with
sentiment and a passion for the character. If we go by
the author, it is true that he touched other issues, on art,literature, etc.etc. and Love per se was not his main subject.
But the movie was made anyway and Jonathan did his very best to identify himself with the character. On the other hand Vodianova was not the right choice. I give the
movie 5 stars~ carmen chacon

Re: “The Charleston restaurant staffing crisis has reached DEFCON 1

I moved to the west coast where servers are paid as much as 12.50 an hour plus tips (most places here 100% tip share) There are just as many worthy restaurants here, they balance with the food trucks and the pop ups, but you know why? Because servers and other F&B workers make livable wages. They stay put in the restaurant that fits them. It really is a pretty great set-up. I wish Charleston would understand the value of that.

Re: “The Charleston restaurant staffing crisis has reached DEFCON 1

I have always felt servers should at least be paid minimum wage. TIPS should never have become 'mandatory' for a server to make enough to survive on. Charge me for the food, and if the service warrants it, I will tip.

Is this more in the city or rural/outlying areas of charleston? How would you get good "city servers" out there?

Re: “Go to events where everyone won't look like you

Is the author saying white folks need to hang out with black folks more often? How about a River Dogs game, or a high school sports event? The 4th of July Celebration at Riverfront Park in North Charleston is an event that has all ethnicities cheek to jowl having a grand time together. How about the Coastal Carolina Fair? (Probably too low brow for the author) or the Holiday Parade down King Street? Everyone comes out and everyone comes together for these events. I don't get the author's point. A bit preachy and a bit elitist IMHO.
