Re: “Crosby's Seafood Market will close on Aug. 25 after 37 years in business

Small business owners are being crushed by government regulations, Obamacare, the economy & overseas competition. Low information consumers are quick to judge their business decisions. The Crosby's and their partners have run a quality, ethical business for close to 30 years. They should be supported for unavoidable business decisions & not blamed. They were encroached upon by urban development. Enjoy the fruits of your labor & thanks for years of great seafood.

Re: “How to get into the Charleston music scene

This is getting exhausting. Read this article in its context, people. The Royal American is an awesome local venue. But ... THIS IS A STUDENT GUIDE. A short one at that, because we're not a blog with unlimited space - we're a costly print publication. And while Royal is great, they have no all-ages shows. And while the Music Hall is also one of my faves, underagers are more likely to be drawn to dives. This was written by a college student for college students, listing "some" not "all" venues. Anyone who thinks we don't support the Royal American and a ton of other great venues doesn't read our paper anyway. We recommend shows everywhere every single week. And yes we could have done nothing but list downtown venues, but then we'd do a disservice to places like the Hive that do all-ages shows all the time and are huge supporters of the underground, underage scene. If you're not a cheap dive bar that does all-ages shows, you should not expect to see yourself in a student guide.

Re: “How to get into the Charleston music scene

It seems like this is an article aimed at incoming CofC freshmen, mostly <21. The Royal American as far as I know is 21+, as are most of the bar venues in the city. Still, JWB's comment is gold.

I will say, though, that the advice to just talk to musicians is solid. I've been in a lot of bands and it feels good to connect to people, and musicians connect with other musicians so you'll get good intel on bands you haven't otherwise heard of.

Re: “Crosby's Seafood Market will close on Aug. 25 after 37 years in business

The ones throwing shade at them for selling you obviously don't understand how difficult it is to keep a small business going from the tax liabilities. I imagine if they could still be profitable and have the revenue stream needed they wouldn't be closing. It's their place and the decision was as well.

Re: “1970's Colossus: the Forbin Project is more relevant than ever

Colossus: The Forbin Project is perhaps my all-time favorite movie. I say this not because of the subtle and intricate yet fascinating and explosive good story you reveal in your interesting review, but because of the intelligence and power of Colossus and its ability to take control.

Artificial intelligence presently is growing rapidly and many smart people are concerned about the possible outcome so creatively and devastatingly portrayed in this film. So it is both timely and valuable that you have now uncovered and have again revealed Colossus because the story serves as an example of the way AI despite good intentions is a Pandora's box.

I'm not speaking out of fear for the future of humankind. The truth is quite the opposite. I work in artificial intelligence and I see it's the evolution of human intelligence. So I'm comfortable knowing the futures described in Colossus, Terminator, I,Robot and other films where the computer as you say "cause misery" is possible, highly probable, and will continue to be the subject of fascinating and fun films.

In fact, Colossus:The Forbin Project is so great a story that it is planned to be retold in an upcoming movie directed by the very talented Ron Howard. I'm enthusiastically looking forward to that big production and release because there are indications the script will include the entire Colossus trilogy!

You see, after Colossus takes over the world the story continues. Brilliant author D.F. Jones also gave us The Fall Of Colossus, and Colossus And The Crab to complete and dramatically end this amazing tale. Each of the titled paperbacks are still available online at Amazon and Ebay after a search of the author's name. I strongly suggest you obtain copies if your enjoyment of the film equals your curiosity to find out what happens at the end.

Yes, it is quite relavant. These days, I carry Colossus: the Forbin Project around with me all the time. I put it on my iPad and my iPhone so I can watch it anywhere and anytime to be deeply reminded of where AI and my work might be going. I think that first part of the story and that film is extraordinary so I'm glad your keen interest and your good work led you to it.

Re: “Charleston councilman argues alleged voting violation should kill West Ashley bike lane vote

Millions of dollars for a "temporary bike lane" !

Build a new bridge without obstructing traffic flow and connect bike lanes form South Windermere and Highway 61.

"It’s on a state road in the city and would be paid for with money from the county’s half-cent sales tax."

NO I-526, a NO vote on the sales tas referendum, NO bike lane

Re: “James Island sports a restaurant scene as quirky as its residents

I do love a good burger, but I go to The Lot for that. I also love a great steak. I go to The Lot for that. Seafood, same thing. Great wine, The Lot. It's my favorite restaurant on the island, hands down. Sure, I'm biased, but I do love The Lot and everything Chef Andy churns out. Plus, knowing the farmers that provide the food means a lot to me. I do look forward to trying Sermet's JI though, and Roadside Seafood is good when you want the fried seafood fix. I just wish they didn't use styrofoam for their takeout dishes.

Re: “Charleston councilman argues alleged voting violation should kill West Ashley bike lane vote

That's a stretch. I'm not for the bike lane at all, however...

The quoted section on the rules of order refer specifically to attendees of the meeting, in person, in the room. They do not in any way imply that the meeting cannot be attended via telephone. If they deem that the phone was an issue, then it's not Williams' vote that is at issue, it is the rest of the voters for violating the rules or order.
