Someone should let the author know Locklear's is still open, it is on the pier.
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.
After taking 8 paragraphs blasting our James Island eateries and the people who live here, only the last paragraph praised Sean Mendes for his two restaurants. I appreciate the last paragraph and the rest is garbage, stay the hell downtown!
We lit a candle http://www.fieldofcandles.com/Candle/Profile/54468 for Alison. LightACandle in her memory, too, or at least share this one.
Beautifully said. We lit a candle http://www.fieldofcandles.com/Candle/Profile/54468 for Alison. Light a candle for her, too.
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?
Where's Battery Park?
For the granmommy who has spent many a night sleeping on your couch watching the silent sandwich caper unfold, this was especially poignant.
Rest in power, Alison. Such a loss.
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!
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 think you mean 2am sammies.
I've never had an issue with bathroom access down there. You know how many fountains the SOBers have in their yards?
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!
Let's see...... Leon's: attitude, poor service, $12....
Betty's: super friendly, lightening service, $7 for a damn good sandwich, gee, which do I choose?
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!

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
