Re: “Proposed changes could increase workforce housing requirements in Charleston

Property owners and developers seem to be pretty upset about this. You know, the people that don't have to commute over an hour each way downtown and spend 10-20% of their wages on parking alone? "Kick the can down the road a while and see what happens then," they seem to be saying. What open disdain for the working-class (read: not bums, miscreants, or any other humans-as-blight boogeymen that strike such fear into the wealthy) that power this service-industry city!

Re: “How not to depict Trump-wave feminism

Okay so the cover-heroine is white and blonde, and that's an honest hit. However: "highly sexualized, with proportions that could confound even the doll makers at Mattel" leaves me confused. No pinched-hourglass figure, no over-rounded bottom, no video-game breasts... she's even wearing full-length sleeves and pants, and the pants aren't just colored legs! And as CityDweller pointed out: Trump looks like that image in his wildest fever dreams alone, which based on a variety of data points is his general mindset.

The cape, however? Has no one ever heard of Edna Mode?

Re: “Has Trump kickstarted a new wave of feminist activism?

He might not have started a feminist wave but he sure should start a South Carolina taxpayer backlash. Take a look
