Re: “Lawyer Andy Savage enlisted to help with investigation of Melongate investigation

Yep, doing this pro bono should get him plenty of other ambulances to chase. Fortunately most reasonable people have gotten over the fact that it was kids smashing a piece of fruit after winning a football game and not anything to do with race.

The guy always trying to solicit business from the City Paper's Blotter section is definitely the person we need to bring legitimacy to this issue.

Re: “The Agenda: T-Rav's complicated relationship status; S.C.'s safe incumbents; Change after Harrell

'College of Charleston President Glenn McConnell has yet to move into the school's presidents house on Glebe St. because of water intrusion that was discovered when ex-Pres. George Benson was moving out."

You would think a bootstrappy Republican like McConnell would be able to do his own house repairs of waiting for a government subsidiary to fix it on the taxpayers' dime.

Re: “Two shootings in four months on residential Hassell Street

So why isn't the NAACP up there in force trying to help figure out why black folks are getting killed in this neighborhood?

Re: “Rep. Mark Sanford faces a radical write-in opponent in November

Actually the right wing is more concerned with helping the poor and common man because increasing taxes disproportionately hurts people with more limited resources. It is through opportunity and growth that people achieve, not by increasing the amount of people on food stamps. The biggest problem is that liberals, by nature, are greedy and envious of other people's success so they feel a need to punish and steal other people's earnings. They are unable to understand that leaving money in the pockets of the people who earned it is better than confiscating it and giving it to people who don't earn it.

Re: “Meet your 2014 school board candidates

If they want my vote, then they, and/or their advisors, should know that I can be courted at the Folly Road Huddle House™.

It's called grassroots voter outreach.

Re: “Chris Robinson on Lowcountry living, Deadheads, and fleeing corporate rock

I always felt that the Black Crowes had a tremendous amount of potential that they didn't QUITE fulfill.

"Shake Your Money Maker" backs this assertion up; that was early in their career, and gave us glimpses of where they could have taken their unique brand of Southern Rock.

I don't know; they kind of got caught up in the Hollywood scene (Kate Hudson, etc.), and maybe (more) drugs would've been a better path toward genuine musical focus and development. I think this is especially true for them.

They had the raw skills and talent to go a long way toward becoming a seminal group.

Really bummed the CRB was cancelled, I hope he plays a smaller venue down here, or just pops in somewhere.

Re: “A look at S.C. front pages the day after Harrell pleads guilty, resigns

Yeah you can get it for that, but you have to show up at like 7:00am on the nose and wade through racks of slightly stained baby clothing, incredibly ugly vases and and oddly huge amount of used shoes, considering they're all coming from the one woman putting on the Yard Sale. IMHO: not worth it just for cheap flooring.

Re: “Disgruntled Yik Yak users are pissed at the Post and Courier for writing about them

Why would the P&C share traffic about organizing a riot based on social media chatter but not level murder accusations against a named individual based on the same? Hmmm... let me put on my thinking cap about that one. Oh, yeah! Libel. That silly thing.

Re: “Condé Nast names Charleston No. 1 U.S. city for fourth year in a row

"Brewengineer,
Firstly, your language s*cks.
Otherwise I generally agree with you except for your take on Italian.
....don't where where you've been or where you come from, but I have to question your standards"

What the f*ck is wrong with my f*cking language? You should f*cking realize you are f*cking reading the motherf*cking Charleston city paper. F*ck. :)

I don't need to name three, as Bacco in Mt P has mastered authentic Italian. My standards come from living in Piedmont for 3 months, then returning about 10 times over the course of 3 years. I have been through Torino, Cavllermaggiore, Bra, Barolo, Sauze d'Oulx, Genoa, Milano, La Spezia, and Cinque Terre (hiked the whole thing). I think I have enough experience to distinguish authentic from Americanized Italian cuisine. Chef Michael at Bacco has prepared Ligurian dishes a few times, after it was requested by some regular diners. They were all spot on and reminded me of my travels in Italy. His hand made pasta is always cooked to a perfect al dente level, which is something other Italian restaurants seem to miss. I have never had a bad meal there, and would highly recommend it to anyone seeking out the best Charleston has to offer.

Re: “Condé Nast names Charleston No. 1 U.S. city for fourth year in a row

Visitors in pretty much any place in the world don't go to the poor, run down places. Well, most of the time - I've heard there are favela tours in Sao Paulo, for instance, but I didn't try it myself.

This is a vote from readers of a travel magazine / website. It's not about where to live.

Re: “Meet your 2014 school board candidates

Businesses have finite resources (well, at least the ones not eligible for Uncle Sugar bailouts) and have to plan carefully to maximize the resources available, both human and capital. People in businesses need to perform well, and are measured to that effect.

That's what schools need, obviously. That's what government needs too.

Where is info about the West Ashley incumbent Tripp Wiles? I understand the Charleston Chamber of Commerce endorsed him.

And yet, another photo of some woman (rather than the more interesting subject in the background). Surely there are other things for you to photograph than random women?
