Even more than Corvairs, bicycles are unsafe at any speed. Bike lanes take away emergency parking for cars and offer no protection for cyclist. Given the mixture of college, tourist, graying, and teenage auto drivers in the Charleston area, you would almost have to be an idiot to ride along side of traffic on a bike lane. Perhaps this is the reason you see miles and miles of empty bike lanes when driving around the area. Deaths per in traffic bicycle miles must far exceed that of automobiles, and with all the media and bureaucratic delusions about the risk/benefits involved, the death toll is going to get even higher. You will hear NONE of the proponents of bike lanes talking about the safety issue and that may be because they really don't care. Or as mentioned, they are delusional.
Thanks by the way to the City Paper for providing a free forum on such issues since the Post and Courier has gone commerical with its online content. Would be nice of CCP covered more local news or perhaps an open comment venue where readers could post comments on any news topics read elsewhere.

This will be my second time visiting Middleton Gardens. I arranged transportation with Omega Transportation ( since you save 10% on a round trip and don't have to deal with the traffic!!!!!) I am truly looking forward to the rice planting demonstrations. And I know that the gardens are really beautiful this time of the year. I can't wait!!!!!!
I saw this last night and it was a fun show to see. As an added bonus, you can now park in the lot right across from the theatre for just $5. It is super convenient if you don't live downtown.
Thank you Susan!!

I have a LivingSocial deal that I'm unable to use for this awesome event. It's $50 and is admittance for 4 + a tailgating spot. If you'd like it email me at firstname.lastname@example.org Hopefully someone can take this off my hands.
I'd go if I thought there'd be a bevy of slave Leias floating about.
You couldn't pay me to go see this.
This was a poorly conceived bar crawl. It was $35 for a SELF-guided tour, which I could have done myself on any given weekend. They organizers provided a t-shirt, a beer passport that listed the participating restaurants and allowed 2 small samples per stop. What makes a sponsored bar crawl fun is that it is a group activity.
With the easy availability and diversity of beers available in this town, anyone can set up a happy hour pub crawl for much cheaper and not be limited to just participating bars.
Hey...Remember when I brought up the idea of doing a Charleston City Paper movie night in Marion Square and Noel told me it was a terrible idea and laughed at me for it? Yeah...that was a terrible idea....

The popular news anchors and high profile moguls (and talk show hosts) have the biggest microphones and make the smallest contributions to important news regarding a decadent & homicidal culture.

The event here says 10 a.m., but based on all other event information on their FB Page and in press releases, etc. it is actually at 6 p.m., with festivities starting at 4 p.m. I believe!
