Re: “Thank you for my beautiful life

Thank you for sharing your life with us, Alison! Tracy Moore has shared your columns with friends here in California, and they're always amazing. Sending you, Maybelle, and your family all of the beauty, peace, and love I can muster. Your razor-sharp analysis, your kindness, and your generosity all endure.

Re: “Thank you for my beautiful life

Alison, It has been years since we have seen each other but I have read several of your blog entries. I came to know about them through Curtis Young's post on Facebook. Each made me smile and tear up at the same time. This column was the same experience. I smiled when you mentioned your mom and it brought back memories of your family at church (and seeing you all walk together to church). I know your daughter will be so proud to say that you are her mom. I am proud to say that I know you. Many prayers for you, Maybelle, Brian and all your family

Re: “West Ashley bike lane narrowly survives City Council vote

The study actually did monitor traffic volume on the James Island connector. It found the following: "The traffic volumes and magnitude of morning peak hour traffic on the James Island Connector were more consistent across the three periods evaluated, which indicates that there was not a shift of traffic from the Legare Bridge to the James Island Connector Bridge in order to avoid the lane closure."

The complete study is available here:

Re: “This is Charleston's opportunity to lead by example — once again

Wow!
"I am not offended, that's for weaklings."
along with smirking condescension, hey, just add "If you don't understand. I'll scream a little louder" and you've got the Citadel trifecta.

Re: “Cool off with beer news Revelry and Holy City, plus Ghost Monkey and Two Blokes openings

Pronghorn, this story isn't being buried at all. It exists on our site as any other story does. As each new Cuisine story is published, it bumps another story down the list of stories all of which are organized by publish date and time.

Hi Alison, Said a prayer for you at Ralph's donuts. First time back in Cookeville in 7 years. As you say, until we meet again.

Re: “Cool off with beer news Revelry and Holy City, plus Ghost Monkey and Two Blokes openings

Silence, and hoping that with time this matter will go away, appear to be the tactics of Mr. Sean Fleming, et al. at Revelry Brewing. It's apparent that they've wholly appropriated a local culture for their financial gain without giving back to said culture. Shameful, to say the least.

My boycott extends to all your brews, and I plan to tell any and everyone why they shouldn't buy your products. Unless, of course, you take the advice from Jaxx's comment.

Meanwhile, Charleston City Paper continues to bury this story. Shameful as well.

Re: “West Ashley bike lane narrowly survives City Council vote

Hey kids, just read on governing.com that of all 50 states SC is 4th in per-capita bicyclist deaths over the last three years. So here's our chance for Charleston to make us #1 in another category!

Uh-oh.

Get ready for the comments to be closed for no good reason at all.

Re: “West Ashley bike lane narrowly survives City Council vote

Unfortunately, in this case, I believe that somebody will die. That bridge isn't very safe in morning rush-hour traffic in a car, much less a bike.

Re: “West Ashley bike lane narrowly survives City Council vote

They didn't due a study on the traffic onto the Connector during this trial period. It was backed up all the way to Harbor View Rd every weekday, because drivers on Folly Road avoided the traffic going towards the Ashley Bridge. There are 300 new apartments right where they want to make it one lane. REALLY?

Re: “Charleston can't handle an influx of new residents

LOL assigning party politics to our local government.

In the lowcountry there are developers, and everyone else--and our local governing bodies are inundated with developers that care not for anyone else's opinion.

Re: “Thank you for my beautiful life

Your beautiful daughter was in some dance classes with my girl. I remember briefly meeting you and, I must say, you had the most fantastic bumper stickers that absolutely cracked me up and made me thankful for kickass feminists. Your bond with your little girl was so touching to witness and your words have me thunderstruck today. I don't claim to know you other than in passing, but I wish you a most peaceful journey in the coming weeks. And know that even in a brief encounter of meeting you and reading your story here, you've changed my life for the better.

Re: “New York Times' recent story "36 Hours In Charleston" was largely written in 2013

Susan, why " or maybe a story on how the president is enabling the violence against cops in our country"? A literate person not here specifically to push a political agenda would know why not - food writers write about food

Re: “Cool off with beer news Revelry and Holy City, plus Ghost Monkey and Two Blokes openings

While you were working on the recipe, brewing, marketing, and canning of the beer, you should have made time to come up with a plan for compensating the culture you're using to market your beer.

There's still time. Let us know if/when you get the horse in front of the cart on this one.

Re: “What to do when there are no more treatment options left

Alison, Thanks for your brave writing during this horrible time in your life. When my mom was at your stage, I wish I had videoed every conversation so I can see her and hear her voice again. I wish I had her thoughts and statements kooky from the cancer preserved, because some of the misstatements were damn funny. You are a smart, thoughtful person, and we are honored to have experienced your thoughts.
