Re: “Thank you for my beautiful life

It was sad and inspiring to read your story. I am so sorry to hear of a good soul being taken too soon. Best wishes to you and your family always.

Re: “The Agenda: SC helps boo Cruz from stage; Lee Atwater's widow on Trump; I-526 off half-cent tax list

Getting tired of being 'half-cented' to death. We seem to keep building projects we cannot afford to maintain.

Re: “Online survey seeks public input on plastic bags in Charleston

Did we not get rid of paper bags and start using plastic because we wanted to save the trees? Now we want to get rid of the plastic to save the turtles, and, what, go back to killing the trees? Make up your minds.

Re: “Why we're switching to Facebook-verified member accounts

The summary of what happened at the P&C website is accurate. I expect more or less the same here.

The comments section at CCP is my favorite part also, and the main reason for that is the anonymity. People say what they really think. There are some mean-spirited and lower-intelligence people who can't discuss things without resulting to personal insults, it's true - but for the most part it's lively and informative and civil.

When someone can do an internet search in a second and find out where I live (Chas County Property Records), where I work (LinkedIn, a must in my job role), etc - no thanks. Too many nutjobs out there and I value privacy as much as possible.

Also, y'all might find out that I actually dropped out The Citadel 1 hour and 14 minutes into my knob year in Aug 1991, thus failing to actually become a member of the The Citadel c/o 1995, and then, even worse, went to the College of Charleston. Such shame would be unbearable, as I am sure you can understand!

Edit - and yet here we are, still commenting as before with our nefarious usernames...?

Re: “Why we're switching to Facebook-verified member accounts

Comment board is the only i reason I read the CCP. Not anymore, I'm bowing out. Im not even going to check back and see if it has actual changed to FB. I hate Facebook. Kinda sucks CCP wont be around much longer, I like to get local music news. See ya Ron Liberte, you wacky butthole.

Re: “Why we're switching to Facebook-verified member accounts

I'll say this one more thing before I am cut off. I am gay and my boss is a hard-lined christian who has been quite vocal about his feelings. If I expose myself by commenting with my real name, I likely will lose my career and life-line. I know this seems unfair, but that is the reality in today's world. I can be fired, denied a job, denied housing, kicked out of my housing, denied loans, etc. because of whom I love, so I will NOT risk my life over CCPs censure-ship. There are more reasons to remain anonymous than to just be a troll!

Re: “Thank you for my beautiful life

I don't know if you'll read this but if you do a stranger from across the country sends you love and comfort. My dad has a brain tumor like yours. I'm so scared about what the future holds but your honesty, bravery and transparency through this has given me comfort. No words can express the grief I feel for you, and your daughter. I share in your pain. Much love and God bless.

Re: “This is Charleston's opportunity to lead by example — once again

Dwayne....I'm sorry you have to read this nonsense. So much negativeness. My son, who is a neurologist & a white american lived in the Charleston area for 6 years and now lives out of state. He followed this tragedy online. When we spoke the weekend after, we spoke about the words of forgiveness from the black clergy just hours after, their repeal of so called "activists" and the human chain formed across the Ravenel Bridge, his words were "That's Charleston and that's why it's such a special place"

Re: “Local Black Lives Matter organizer arrested at North Charleston City Hall

Ben...pretty simple solution. But somehow no one in the N Chs community nor minority communities across our country are using this common sense attitude. Just listen to any large city police scanners and you will hear for yourself. The folks calling police for help are black reporting crimes committed by other black folks.

Re: “Thank you for my beautiful life

I do not know you. I do not consider you family, friend, lover or such. I do consider you someone I wish I knew. I do wish that whatever time you have left is spent smiling, laughing, kissing, hugging and thanking all those close to you who have lifted you up in someway. Tonight we added you to my son's prayer. He asked who you were-I said "The Princess's Mother". He said I wish I could have met her. I said "Me Too". Until we meet for the first time in Heaven-Please take care.

Re: “Thank you for my beautiful life

Mrs. Alison, I did not know you, but your words are so deeply moving. Your article speaks so plainly, yet it depicts the saga of human experience with such raw, tender, bittersweet emotion. The resolute dignity you show in the face of fear and desperation is so powerful, so inspiring - befitting of someone who has fought against the odds her whole life for her causes. Even this close to the end, you painstakingly fought against your sickness and wrote this article. It couldn't silence you; you are a beacon that will not waver, will not be bowed by even the adversity that ends you.

I hope your daughter can read this article and learn who you were as a person. I hope that through the stories of those that knew you, and through your archived work, she can grow up knowing and admiring her brave mother, even without you there. May she have your strength to get her through.

As a young woman, I thank you.

Re: “Local Black Lives Matter organizer arrested at North Charleston City Hall

Duncan, thats some ignorant and racist stuff man. You are a hypocrite and racist. All right entitled to everyone under the same law. This problem has many interwoven traits of culteral stigma, discrimination and civil rights. But at the same time, there needs to be a better way for the BLM members to get their point accross rather than conduct themselves in the same loud and brash manner that some even in their own community would call "nig***ish." Simple minded people like Dunk'in Duncan should re-educate themselves of how we have arrived at this point. All Lives Matter.

Re: “Thank you for my beautiful life

Allison please,please don't give up. I've written a book title "Stress and Depression",The Real Culprits. Theory is all cancers comes from these, because they compromise the immune system greatly. They are not the same,but they work in harmony too overwhelm the system. Stress is a short term dilemma,and is subject to abate on it's,but if it doesn't, then depression sets in.This becomes the medium by which abnormal cells proliferate. Fear makes cancer cells grow. Long story short, there are things you can do.Laughter,touch,happiness produces a very powerful chemical that will put cancer in remission.Please,please lets try this.There is more too my theory,but space is limited. Just don't give up. Start walking and going places, where you see people doing funny things,just hang in there. Have the faith of a mustard seed in me. I'm a first time writer and the book is on hold, until I can find, preferable, someone who has won prizes that will lead them toward "The Noble Prize in Physiology and Medicine, like the Lasker Prize,Breakthrough Prize in Life Sciences, Tang Prize,etc. I need someone to partner with me on making a medication I have in mind based on my theory noted above. A person who has won the award or someone on the edge of winning would be an ideal person. They would see my theory immediately once I explained it in detail. Mean while hang in there,don't give up.We can live much longer and happier than we are doing in our country. No one should be dying like we are,90-110 isn't no age. Good health and living long is a mind set. The Fins are dying like flies,because they suffer from depression. Darkness maybe a factor,but it doesn't have to be their coffin. Good luck in the endeavors pointed out too you.
