Re: “Sermet's provides James Islanders a comfortable dining outlet

Your lede is confusing as fuck. I think partly because its based on a large assumption and partly because of some funky logic/wording. "JI needs restaurants because residents don't want to drive downtown for better food." I understand the fact that you think we don't leave the island because of the added inconvenience, even with the assumption that the food is going to be better. It is inconvenient at times, but a lot of people genuinely enjoy dining here. Regardless, you're projecting an opinion that may not be shared by most of the people that live here, which definitely comes off as pretentious. Critique the food as much as you want, but at least try to show an attempt at understanding why patrons come to these restaurants instead of just assuming that we eat here because its a bitch to drive downtown.

Also, to elaborate on my point about logic/wording:
You're basically saying that we need more restaurants. And you know this because you see people eating here instead of DT because of added inconvenience. This does not really prove your point. This is simply some conjecture that you came up with. So yes, maybe we do need more quality establishments and also it could be true that people settle for less for convenience sake. Both points can be true but the latter does not prove the former.

I dunno, there could be something I missed but I've read that first paragraph at least 1738 times and it still confuses me.

No mention of the college-drug ring reported by Post and Courier in June on the surprising amount of guns found in the possession of other notable privileged caucasian males. That's a wicked way to make a statement, supply the drug-dealers with guns, supply them with their DRUGS, and then make them look like the bad-guys right? Oh, then cycle all the money back into slush-funds and salary-bonus's this 'State' (South Carolina) is in a 'State' of disrepair. We need some monitoring from the federal government here before things get out of hand, wouldn't you all agree?

Re: “Friendliest City or Racial Backwater?

@Pc Coker: Roof was certainly from Columbia but to say that he doesn't serve as a beacon of the white, racist, Southern redneck is only acceptable if you are looking for a stronger word than "beacon." Roof is the kind of guy you would think was a caricature if he wasn't so real, he ticks so many pathetic boxes of the stereotype.

But he represents a small fraction of us, maybe 10%, in a non-silent minority. Our problems with race, from education to criminal justice to economic opportunity are much more subtle and yet too normalized and widespread to make headlines.
