Re: “Best reader suggestions for what we should call peninsula’s upper east side

Its the neck, always has been, always will be, at least to us from here. Don't give a rats ass what y'all want to "rename" it, we are still calling it the neck. I think I'm going to start randomly renaming stuff for no good reason too. Starting with the Market Street Area. Instead of Little Italy like NYC, it will now be known as Little Buckeye or maybe Little Toledo, how about Little Cincinnati?

Re: “Best reader suggestions for what we should call peninsula’s upper east side

For past 12 years i have heard older black folks in my neighborhood (North Central/ Huger Street....represent!) refer to this area as the the Neck. where is Murrays Meats? used to be on Rutledge where Jamals is located, but now it is up on the Neck. sometimes they say up the Neck instead of up on the neck, but regardless it is already the neck part of the Peninsula. I, too, am tired of the inventa a culture mentality pushing ut towards NoMo which is so 1980,s lamo, ya know. just my .02.

Re: “Gregory Forman on Law and the Sexless Marriage

It's called constructive abandonment and it can also be considered as cruel and inhumane treatment. Depending on the state constructive abandonment can be legitimately used as the basis for a fault divorce.

I have to agree with Ima, I never heard anyone outside of the city paper call it anything but "the neck".

"Journo Ron Aiken has stayed on reported of impropriety inside Richland County government since leaving the SC Policy Council's The Nerve and founding Quorum Columbia, uncovering new allegations that county recreation officials were selling moonshine and counterfeit electronics out of their government offices"
Perhaps, if the reporter doesn't understand sentence structure and grammar, we should hire an editor that does?

Keep it NOMO, or rename it Upchuck.

Re: “Best reader suggestions for what we should call peninsula’s upper east side

All of these suggestions are actually more contrived than the original premise. What about “Doucheborough”, or “ Northdouche”, or “Uppermorrisonashleycooperdouche”? You know, something more fitting for the consumerist, invent-a-culture aspect of the exercise?
