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

Since the author does not know when to use "then" versus "than," I quit reading the article.

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

Mario Delgado must be on acid or something, or maybe commented on the wrong article.

As for Edmund's Oast, they deserve all the success in the world. Scott and Rich have been innovators in the Charleston beer business for years, and a lot of places have been able to succeed based on the hard work of people like them and the owners of Coast Brewing. It wasn't that long ago that liquor was only in mini-bottles, and ABV was capped at the level of everyday domestics. That didn't just change on its own.

Every experience at the restaurant has been top notch, and Scott is in there running plates, checking on customers, talking shop, and everything else that a great restaurant owner does. Kudos and good luck to them for Best Restaurant of the Year.

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

They have the franchise because either through working there or investing there they paid for it.

Re: “A lack of parking is causing problems for Boulevard residents and those nearby

They are getting rented and quickly so obviously the rent rate they are asking for is not too astronomical yet.

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

You missed and proved my point at the same time. You can't bring yourself to believe that there is a possibility that climate change is not created by man and you use as the basis of your belief that only studies that have shown that is the case can count as valid. And, I am not saying that it is a correct or incorrect belief, just that the people who believe it refuse to look at anything that questions that belief as a valid point of view, just like the young earther crowd does. That has nothing to do with the two crowds having similar beliefs, just similar logic structures to personally validate those beliefs.

It is recent enough in history that it can probably found out but I wonder how many papers were put out that Darwin's theories were incorrect at the time? Quantity of dissension is not necessarily a good evaluation of the quality of the dissension. Oh, and here is a link to a bunch of articles but I am pretty sure you poo pooed on them before because: a - you and other 'believers' refuse to believe there is another side and b - I have looked at this link sometime recently because it is a different color. http://www.populartechnology.net/2009/10/p…

I do tend to agree with Native Ink, however, on the fact that we should be worrying about how to mitigate issues associated with climate change that are actually occurring and that there is no sense in doing things that we know are not going to have positive results long term. But we do not need to make drastic changes in response to the alarmists who's predictions have not been coming true (refer to artrogue's short list above) and are making these predictions based on a belief that it can only be man causing these changes when there are dissenting opinions on such a massively broad subject.

The city paper is a joke. You brought back treyvon martin's picture to your cover in a desperate grab for viewers. Wish there was any good local literature to read. Hater.

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

I strongly suspect that those who are lobbing insults regarding the cost associated with living in Mt. P are those who are also most jealous they can't afford to live here. For those who do live here and are so unhappy there are numerous avenues of exit. Please feel free to use one and go back to wherever you feel is so much better!

Re: “Who’s flying mysterious aircraft over Mt. Pleasant and Daniel Island?

"I don't know, I was told there was an actual plane that nearly crashed on 526 Tuesday afternoon."

That could have been it. It was really close to the Don Holt bridge.

Re: “A lack of parking is causing problems for Boulevard residents and those nearby

Of course the debacle of a 'needed housing' development got pushed through with limited parking - it's The Beach Company for God's Sake - they get whatever they want. Satisfying a 'need' for rental housing and charging astronomical rents are what The Boulevard project is ALL about - $1200 - $1400/ month for an EFFICIENCY apartment is ridiculous! Its all about Beach Company making their $'s .

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

"I find Science Daily to be on the warmist side as far as GW is concerned. I'm not knocking their entire website."

No, they are just one of the better popsci news sources out there. The fact that they have a lot of studies posted about global climate change is simply due to the fact that there are so many research projects looking at it right now.


"Climate change and young earthers are cut from the same cloth"

nofaith, just when I think you use some logic in your posts, you completely let me down. Climate change denial is where rational discussions are lost. Look at the deniers, almost always hard core religious. Personally, I come from petroleum and automotive industries. Do you think I would just blindly follow the side that could threaten my livelihood some day? I don't want there to be human cause climate change. I spent years on the side that said there is nothing to worry about. Then, scientists kept producing more and more studies showing that we are changing our ecosystem in a negative way. Feel free to show me all the peer reviewed studies showing we have not affected global climate trends. I am very open and always enjoy seeing new evidence. The problem I have found, is that for every 1 study showing no link to human interference, there are 100 showing we have done damage. I am not here to argue that we can fix what we have started, either. However, that doesn't mean we shouldn't try.

Re: “Eating insects could solve the problem of food sustainability, but can Charleston chefs make it fashionable?

I have no problem with eating these, but I do have a problem with this alarmist crap coming from a group that has created many of our problems to begin with. No gmo, no meat, we should live on nothing but fruits and berries and kale, divert our grain stock to our gas tanks (at high cost and reduced efficiency). Plus we've heard this story before over and over, we can't feed everyone, according to various sources we should have run out of food and starved multiple times over the last century. In short, I trust these people about as far as I can throw Barney Frank with one hand.

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

Who's hijacking the thread besides you?

1. Nice ad hominem attack.
2. Nice change of subject to a non-related topic like tobacco.
3. Nice try.

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

@Josh Hamblin
You proved my point. At this point, people need to be talking about the effects of climate change, but people like you hijack every conversation.

It's like 40 years ago when people were trying to figure out ways to reduce smoking but there was always some pro-tobacco, anti-science loser screaming over everybody that smoking doesn't cause cancer.

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

Not so sure what your racist beliefs have to do with a restaurant.

Their nod in the press is well deserved. I have had an excellent experience every time I have been there. The food and their specialty cocktails are excellent and creative and the service I have gotten has been nothing short of fantastic. In the rare case where they made an error it was all hands on deck to make sure it got resolved as soon and as professionally as possible.

I don't know Mr. Shor personally but I have seen him in action at the restaurant and he is very efficient, personable and professional.

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

Climate change and young earthers are cut from the same cloth, just from different extremes. Both have plenty of scientists and pseudo scientists that will cherry pick or manipulate evidence to make it fit the outcome that they desire. No matter what amount of contrary evidence you show them they will never, EVER reconsider their position or be able to have a rational discussion about it.

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

It seems to me, from reading all these various columns and their comments, that the King St. area in question belongs to, is for the benefit of, and under total oversight and administration by the F & B people. Now, how does that work and how did they get the franchise?
