Re: “What it means to choose a person over a lifestyle

I've had the pleasure of traveling across the US, Latin America, and Europe for business for the past 15 years. My girlfriend yearns for the day that we live in another country for a few years, but in my own way, I feel that I've seen enough of it to satisfy me. Everyone is different. Be yourself, challenge yourself, and question why you are envious of others, but don't ignore what makes you happy because you wonder why you are unlike others around you.

Re: “What it means to choose a person over a lifestyle

People do stuff like travel at different times of their lives - it's like having kids - some do it early some do it late and some don't have any - FB only shows the highlights

Thank you, Smoky Weiner! Thank you for honoring my dear Nik in this beautiful tribute. Nik would have been so very touched, as am I. He was a wonderful soulmate and even better husband. I am eternally grateful.

Your story is incredible. Your story telling is impeccable. I loved it. If it were a book it would be a page turner for sure. Thank you.

Re: “Calling bullshit on Charleston's friendliest city designation

After reading your article, I think your experience with unfriendly people in Charleston says more about you, than about Charlestonians.

Smoky, I remember you rising in the midst of all the greats that performed on Cumberland's stage and Charleston's music scene.
I too won't forget jamming with Nik and yourself for many nights..... it was magic to me .....

Re: “Calling bullshit on Charleston's friendliest city designation

I was born here 64 years ago. My roots go back to the 1690's. Charleston is a very friendly city. It always has been. Just do not make waves or look below the surface. Even with the influx of people from off this has not changed all that much. We welcome visitors with open arms, take their money and send them home with fond memories. But be a local of poor means and you will be ignored and forgotten. We had a big showing for Charleston Strong but a year later nothing has really changed. The poor are still poor. Minorities are largely ignored and what used to be local shops that were affordable has given way to specialty boutique shops and high end clothiers. The locals have long since given up on living in the city. They can no longer afford it. Gentrification is ruining the cities variety. But bless our hearts, we are sociable and friendly.

Re: “Calling bullshit on Charleston's friendliest city designation

I work in the tourism industry.
In the last two weeks of Auugust, most of the Southern States send their kids back to class for some reason that I have yet to understand.(We dont have snow days. We do have to pay the A/C bills for schools that open their doors in mid August.)
Anyway, we call the last 2 weeks of August NY season, because northerners are all that we have on the islands.
We dread this time of year. People are rude, impatient, whiney and condenscending. They look at manners as a weakness and a Southern accent as a sign of being uneducated.(By the way our country was founded at Jamestown, not Plymouth. So it's Y'ALL that have the accents not us.)
The difference of how people treat each other in various geographical regions of our country is dramatic and bias against all things Southern is alive and well. One of the VP's at Kiawah told me about the the islands in the 80's. He said they wanted the land and not the locals.
Maybe what your noticing is a tipping of the scale as more and more Notherers move here, there are fewer and fewer folks left that will say "Mornin" or hold a door, say parden or M'am, Just look at Raliegh, Charlotte or Atlanta, which Lewis Grizzard called a "Yankee Colony" Are we becoming a minority in our own hometown?

It would be such a shame if corruption and scandal is uncovered at MUSC. It's such a great hospital and does so much that's good for so many! It would just be sad....
