Re: “New interactive map shows effects of sea level rise on Charleston

I really have to wonder: how much do you get paid to sit in your house with a google news alert set to some "hot button" topic and then you go flood the comments section on a story with said topic?

Looking at you, Steve and John and Andrew.

Re: “An illustrated guide to what happened the night of Denzel Curnell's death

Im white and i have been stopped because my car looked to nice for my age, whatever that means. I have been stopped while walking and been patted down, it was late i was wearing black and was all punk rocked out. I get it. What i didnt do was become unresponsive and i did not keep my hands in my pockets. If i had i would figure i would not have had a good time. People hate in cops until they need them. Its a hard and dangerous job nobody likes you and oh bye the way people shoot at you. Cops die or get shot from people acting the same way this kid did. Its not all race all the time sometimes its stupid people being stupid.

Adams is a FAKE Christian, and a danger to South Carolina and the whole country. Vote against him.

Re: “Sorry Mt. P, you're not a quaint coastal town, you're a sprawling suburb

Well darn it, Jill, because Long Island / New York is EXACTLY what we've been aiming for all these years. Also, the proliferation of the word "hubby", we definitely need more of that. We'll keep trying.

Re: “Sorry Mt. P, you're not a quaint coastal town, you're a sprawling suburb

Truth be told, most residents in Charleston realize that a large portion of the economic development in the Charleston area is in fact Tourism. This is why you see bumper stickers that say "Support Tourism because it supports you." Clearly, Chris has not realized this fact or he would not have used the success of Town Center as a dig towards Mount Pleasant. What really unsettles me is the fact that I see many make the comment that this place doesn't meet their standards for a great place to live. If that was the case, then why have you decided to come and live here? As a former resident that still holds strong ties to the area, I will say to you if you are looking to come for a less stressful vacation, we would be glad to take care of you. If you are, however looking to come and covert Charleston into Brooklyn, you may not be surprised if you are turned away. Have a good day, Ya'll:)

Being from the East End of LI, and hubby having grown up in Sag Harbor, never once have we considered Mt. P a quaint coastal town.

The 'Hub at Columbia' apartment building looks pretty cool and modern, vaguely like what the Cigar Factory would have been in the 2007 plan which never happened.

Re: “Scott Shor of Edmund's Oast reacts to Best New Restaurant nom from Bon Appetit

I don't know, Chris. This is not a normal direction for comment threads on restaurant puff pieces to go. This is headier than the comment thread about the Palestinian place in Tanger, where the Palestinian owner expressed some sympathy for dead family members in the restaurant review.

Thank you Mario for letting me know that liking non-macro beer is merely a manifestation of my seething paranoia about the rise of the coloreds. I had no idea that I was supporting a dying white supremacy movement with this IPA. I can't imagine that the "brutal repression vs. foodie-culture denial" is a false dichotomy. I mean, everything in this world is perfectly polarized, after all.

But on to more important things: Yes, Scott Shor looks like a total douchebag in that picture. I don't think that was what he was going for, but it is what it is.

Fantastic location and great vibe. I have gone to a couple of free events at this location and PBC has a great open air atmosphere.

Re: “U.S. House candidate Tom Adams comes out for same-sex marriage

I am so tired of Christians claiming that somehow marriage (a legal term referring to a state LICENSE issued in order to recognize two individuals a single entity for legal and economic purposes) is somehow biblical and synonymous with "matrimony." If it were, then wouldn't Christians also oppose marriages between opposite-sex Jews, Muslims, or atheists? Kudos to Tom Adams for being rational and reasonable and recognizing that the LAW should not discriminate as to which citizens are allowed to commingle their affairs. This has nothing to do with the "traditional definition of marriage," which in any event is thousands of years older than Christianity.

Just from a plainly Christian point of view, btw: does it not seem like a moral high-ground, conservative sort of value to recognize and promote monogamous relationships and affirm the stability of a monogamous relationship, to privilege it above promiscuity?

We'll get there one day - soon I hope. What is fair for one should be fair for everone under the laws of equal treatment.

Sheheen was a no-show at Charleston Pride last weekend because no one would introduce him from the podium. Several people were asked and all declined. People are finally catching on!

Re: “U.S. House candidate Tom Adams comes out for same-sex marriage

DOMA, which was law and which applied equally to everyone, defined marriage for federal purposes as being of one man and one woman.

Many state laws have defined marriage in the same manner and have applied that law equally to everyone in the state.

Redefiners of marriage don't care about equal application of the law. They only care about redefining the institution. Save the pretensions about equality for another day. They don't apply here.

Re: “U.S. House candidate Tom Adams comes out for same-sex marriage

Yes but a trademark license has to do with law which should apply equally to everyone, marriage as defined by a church has do to with religious beliefs that should only apply to those who are voluntary followers of that religion.

Re: “Proposed new bar ordinance promises more of the same

But the property values are increasing, not decreasing. While I know that there are unpleasant instances that happen as people travel through neighborhoods to either get to their car or their home if they were that bad the price of real estate purchases and rentals would not be steadily climbing as they are and have been for awhile. I wouldn't buy a house on the beach and expect that I would never have someone loud on the beach in front of my house at some point or that there would not be a stray piece of trash blown into my yard. Sucks but that is what happens when you live in a location that everyone else wants to visit.

and back to comment #1- arty, government does not erode freedom, rather the societal acceptance of the well-being of the whole is the trigger.
