Re: “Confederate flag defender Chris Corley, facing domestic violence and gun charges, called for leaders with morals

From the comments left alone we can tell the Charleston paper is nothing but a leftist propaganda rag.

Re: “10 Charleston restaurant trends that need to end with 2016

First of all I have never have been, or will go to Starbucks! Secondly, if it weren't for tourism, we would only have about 25% of the restaurants we have. The local Charlestonians are fickle. Thry support a new restsurant for 6 months, then run the other way. It is a cut throat business, and the turnover is high. I agree that empolyee salaries are rediculously low, and need to change. I fail to criticise an industry that has to depend on the whs of tourists in order to survive. It takes real courage!

Re: “Mayor Tecklenburg's honeymoon period is over

Mr Greene should also note that under Riley and his "successful" pro tourism and affordable housing policies the amount of African Americans living downtown has gone from around 28,000 to less than 8,000. How is your so called most "liveable city" working for them? Is that how the racial divide is "narrowed"?

How is Riley's massive expansion and annexation without any significant infrastructure or cycling path planning helping those spending hours in traffic on Folly Road, Savannah Highway, and River Road? Does Mr Green ever drive in this city?

How is putting a cruise terminal for a polluting cruise line in deep downtown going to help liveablity downtown? How successful was the Riley administration in running a safe and modern fire department? as far as waterfront access why is it that the City Marina is now a private Marina without access to the general public?

I think Mr Green should try to be honest about Riley's if he wants to be considered objective when he criticizes the new mayor, but yet I have never seen Mr Green write a single word that was not agenda driven.

It's "rein" in, like with a horse. "Reign" refers to what royalty does.

Re: “Mayor Tecklenburg's honeymoon period is over

The two most notable promises of his campaign, to enact a hotel moratorium and to oppose the construction of the proposed Sergeant Jasper, ended with a whimper. For me, the current explosion of hotels on the peninsula confirms a one term mayor.

Re: “10 Charleston restaurant trends that need to end with 2016

I eat my leftovers! and I would gladly buy a caramel frappuccino from a local shop if they offer it. I also like the option to dine out while taking my dog for a walk. Why should I take my dog all the way back home, just to go back out again?

Re: “10 Charleston restaurant trends that need to end with 2016

How about numbering these if you're going to title the article 10 trends....

As for food waste, that concern is basically 99% out the door, just check a restaurant or grocers dumpster... so if there's even a remote chance you or someone is going to eat it, take it, the difference isn't going to solve any hunger problems.

...speaking of bill retrieving canines, how about folks chill with their dogs altogether while dining out, you don't see anyone bringing their cat, marmot or cockatoo out to sip Moscow mules do ya?

Oh and good luck closing Starbucks..

Re: “10 Charleston restaurant trends that need to end with 2016

I take and eat the hell out of my leftover food. I do accept that I'm not normal in that regard.

A legit request: which black-owned Gullah restaurants on the Peninsula provide the alternative suggested? I've only ever been to Gullah Cuisine in MtP and that closed.

If the food scene here seems merely "good," might I suggest Mr. Cohen take a trip to just about any other small-to-medium-sized city in this country and report back? I travel to enough of them to know that the fact that we still have non-chain restaurants in spades puts us in the 1% category.

So... many... chains.

There was a time when Peninsula was orgasmic, the lump crap salad with fried green tomatoes, in the beginning with Bob Carter. But not more, I agree with the above comments.

Let's see...engaging in racist, sexist, violent behavior with a very deluded perception of morality. Are we sure he's just not auditioning for a position in the Trump administration?

Domestic violence is a deadly issue in SC. This man should not hold office as an elected representative of the people. He needs to resign immediately or be impeached.

I was depressed many years and defeated that depression by my faith in Jesus and prayer. Ever since I have had no suicide thoughts. And no depression.

Re: “A musician's case against the $5 cover charge

If you can't afford to pay a $10 cover to see a live band, then go to a bar that has a jukebox and stuff dollar bills into all night. You can then listen to all your favorite songs without paying a cover.
