Art Oflistening... I think you may be running into some unintentional irony.

Re: “Lobster Roll Call: The best decapod deals in town

Sweeny's on Johns Island has a great New England Lobster Roll on their menu for $19. I believe they also get their split top rolls shipped from up north as well. Makes this New Yorker happy.

Re: “Why did Denzel Curnell have four extra rounds?

Sorry sir, search and seizure rights for whom? the police on any given person. hell no. that is not the way ensure gun safety. That sir, is the start of the POLICE STATE!!! End of privacy. no one knows what he was doing with the gun, so you cannot speculate on what he was going to do with it. maybe he has a concealed gun permit? but the fact of the matter is as citizens we are supposed to have alienable rights. when the police can use stop and frisk tactics, and can profile people, we are and more so a certain demographic lives under a burgeoning police state, and an ever increasing militarizing one at that. So No, you are Definitely deeply missing the point if you think search and seizure is part of a free society.....

Re: “Lobster Roll Call: The best decapod deals in town

Your math makes my head hurt. If you need 1/3rd lb of meat and a 2lb lobsta yields 1/2 lb, why crack another?

Also a 2lb lobster yields 8 oz of meat, not 32.

2 lobsters would have enough meat for 3 rolls.

30 bucks for 2 lobsters/ 3= 10$ meat per delicious roll

Re: “Why did Denzel Curnell have four extra rounds?

The fact that he had a fully loaded weapon with spare ammunition is a relatively strong suggestion that he may have planned to do something that required more bullets than one, yes.

That is a very good way to start a conversation or argument over our American gun culture and our unnecessary lack of firearm regulation.

It does not confirm or support the argument in favor of a police state. Search and seizure rights are integral to the foundation of a free society. What you believe is good for the goose will eventually be good for the gander, and then it will be too late.

Re: “Jerusalem Mart & Deli brings the flavors of Palestine to North Charleston

Lynnar,

Let me ask you this: Should this man not grieve because a relative was burned alive? Is that what you are suggesting? The owner or Jerusalem Mart does not speak for all Palestinians and he certainly doesn't speak for those who committed any of the crimes and atrocities you mention or refer to. He's a fellow American who believes that the two sides can find peace if they only look "in our hearts." What is so objectionable about that?

This is a complicated situation with horrible acts committed by both sides, and I say that as someone who condemns the United State's own policy of drone strikes and general warmongering.

I have personally visited Jerusalem Mart and found one of the co-owners to be a kind and generous man, and I will gladly go again. America is, or at least it should be, a place were we can put our differences aside, a place where people of differing cultures and races can come together and live as one free people.

Re: “Jerusalem Mart & Deli brings the flavors of Palestine to North Charleston

I totally agree with lynnar's post. This was a food article and you brought in politics without doing your fact finding job as a reporter. You should know better, but it's freedom of the press. Media bias is what this is and you fed into it. How truly pathetic. I too will tell all my friends and contacts to NOT patronize this man's store/restaurant.

Re: “A chat with "Drunk History" creator Derek Waters inside a van outside The Royal American

Jaxx, your overreaction to some relatively innocuous internet hyperbole is saying as much about you as his overstatement says about him. At this point I wouldn't want to hear a story from you, either, and that's not how the oral history you're putting such an outsized value on is supposed to work.

Re: “Jerusalem Mart & Deli brings the flavors of Palestine to North Charleston

You hv a huge Jewish population here in Charleston. Granted you have freedom of the press. But to write making Israel the villians and terrorists by burning that Palestinian teenager is outrageous!!!! How dare you write such a slanted point of view in a food article!!!!! You had no place in putting this man 's point of view of the Israeli/ Palestinian conflict that is going on! And you not putting in that what started the whole thing was three innocent Israeli ( one American)!were kidnapped and torchured and killed! I hv a friend who lives in Tel Aviv and those boys were shot in the head 10 times! And the owner omits that His people rejoiced in the streets when they found the dead boys. Had no desire to find who killed them. But of course we know. Did the Israeli's rejoice when they found the Palestinian teenager? No! And the Arabs that live in Israel, have the right to vote. They live prosperous lives. This man is lying thru his teeth. He is lucky they live in Israel. The Palestinians voted in Hamas as soon as Israel left Gaza. I resent that you included this mans point of view. There is no way I would step foot in this mans store and I will post on FB and tell the Jewish community not to give this man business. There are also many, many non Jews who are huge supporters of Israel, and I am sure they will not step foot in this mans shop. You did a huge injustice by writing this kind of article.

Re: “A chat with "Drunk History" creator Derek Waters inside a van outside The Royal American

I don't know if I'd go so far as to say it's stronger here haha. New Englanders can be downright vicious about the native vs local vs transplant vs tourist thing as opposed to the kind of pretentious irritability you find here.

Course then again I'm older now and less inclined to broadcast my "outsider" status as if that made ME part of an exclusive club of my own.

We all want to be special and belong to something, after all. I guess I've lived in enough places for long enough to see that someone wanting respect for the "accomplishment" of having been born somewhere nice is always going to be disappointed with what he gets - while worldliness never beats nativism in an argument over who is perceived to have experience and knowledge, as well.

Re: “A chat with "Drunk History" creator Derek Waters inside a van outside The Royal American

Are you seriously calling me out for "name calling" when I initially posted 6 benign words and you called me a bitter asshole and ignorant? That's what led to my second post directed at you. And what you've done is confirm my assumption.

You've met enough locals in 5 years to come to a conclusion about most of them? My god do you not see yourself for what you are?

Why would I share a story with an asshole like you? And to my point, why would anyone? Any native, of any place, wouldn't give a presumptuous dick like you the time of day. You could learn so much more about any locale's history by engaging it's natives in constructive conversation rather than assuming you know more than everyone because you read the book or took a tour.

Your loss.

Re: “167 Raw serves up plenty of seafood, but more importantly hearty lobstah rolls

I can't wait to try this place. I hope the lobster roll is worth the money. I was really hoping to see the butter version someone had mentioned before. Sounds like they went for the regular version.

Re: “A chat with "Drunk History" creator Derek Waters inside a van outside The Royal American

"If it makes any difference, this pride of place stuff isn't specific to Charleston - same arguments happen from Cape Cod to San Franscisco. It's really more about being proud to be an exclusive member of something than anything particular about that "something." It's a human impulse, and maybe if both sides can recognize that we can both just relax and enjoy Charleston for being the city both sides want to live in."

Very true, but it is stronger in Charleston. But it seems to come from a select mostly white, upper-middle class group. At least they are the most vocal. Personally, I tell people I meet that I am from Mt Pleasant, but was born and raised in WV. I pay taxes here, own a home here, and work here, so I am as local as you can get from that standpoint. I am not, however, a "native."
