Re: “Shedding light on Charleston's homeless problem

Clarkie, you obviously are not a True Christian, as my husband and I are. We worship The Lord and live by The Bible. There are many stories of man eating lesser men and beasts, that is why they are here! They fall from Gods grace and that is their lot.

"Alas the cries of the drunkard were stilled by God as the followers placed him verily into the large heated cauldron and upon he they heaped many vegetables including carrot and corn. Let not him that eateth no man despise him that eateth of man; and let not him which eateth not man judge him that eateth man: for God hath received him." Romans 14:2

Leviticus 26:2
You shall eat the flesh of your sons, and you shall eat the flesh of your daughters.

Read your Bible Clarkie!

Re: “FCC Commissioner Mignon Clyburn is one of five people who will vote on Net Neutrality today

This is a DIRECT stab to the American Constitution and The People. These five leaders and Obama think they are ABOVE the Law?

Re: “I suck at busking

Ima, you got me. I was afraid of that - it's not that we don't have them it's just that I haven't seen them. I hope it stays that way.

Re: “The Agenda: Senator calls women "lesser cut of meat"; Biden coming to SC; CofC-USC season opener

Ahhh... Just want to point out that "Democratic Washington Governor John Kitzhaber" is actually "Democratic OREGON Governor John Kitzhaber"... Washington's governor is Jay Inslee. Pretty easy to look up.

Re: “A few thoughts on the Sgt. Jasper PUD parking spin

Suddenly, bicycle riding is NOT a viable means of transportation? Huh. Cause I thought all the support for bicycle lanes and "sharing the road" and closing down the bridge was about making it easier for poor people to get to work. I guess the support must be coming from douchebags in spandex who want the rest of society to fund their hobby. Who knew?

Isn't that right Mr. Seekings? Your choice appears to be hypocrite or pariah.

Re: “After seven years of sampling Charleston's finest fare, a critic bids adieu

Well, Bosox, why not both? I'm 90% more likely to dismiss online commenters writing about what they do not understand. "I don't like pickles." Well good for you, Yelp. "All waiters were rude." How is that even helpful? User-generated content sucks and is without value, for the most part. Professional critics are professional critics. Why the knee-jerk resentment for them?

Also, professional critics, I'm gonna need all of you to shut up about The Lot and Two Burroughs. Once they get crowded with Ohioans and suburban moms from Atlanta and Raleigh, there will be more top quality local secrets here.

FWIW, the current (and hopefully permanent) lull in attention to Charleston cuisine and "southern" cuisine is completely predictable. Over-hyped, over-done, it sucked the oxygen out of the room and its time in the spotlight is now passed.

Re: “Today's 'freezing rain' closings explained

Impoverished families living in cold climates are much more likely to spend money on cold weather gear than those living where the average temperature in the dead of winter is 60 degrees . It's sad that you need that explained to you.

Re: “Gypsy-punk band Gogol Bordello makes music that crosses borders

The most fun your gonna have at the Music Farm in a long time! Music and an experience that just doesn't come to our town very much.

With the glut of "americana" and whatever other crap passes for original music these days... They are a breath of fresh air.
Maybe they will even come back later this year when they r on the road with Flogging Molly.

Re: “A 30-restaurant trek revealed the city's best fried shrimp spots

shhhhhh michele... let everyone go to red drum and pay the ransom..
Okra is the only current place whose fried shrimp reminds me of home.

I'm really sorry you had a bad experience there brew, I've not had a bad meal since they opened. Plus i'm sure the family would take care of anything that you found upsetting or sub par.

"Allowing the FCC to regulate the web as a public utility...". Leave it to the so called progressives to ruin a good thing. Everyone should be against this.

Guess whats next after this.. ?

I agree John. We should totally allow Comcast, Time-Warner and others to monopolize and throttle the internet bandwidth on which we have all come to depend and have all paid for with incalculable public funds.

Re: “A few thoughts on the Sgt. Jasper PUD parking spin

the flaw to Mr. Parker's argument is that the housing costs will likely be too high for the average employee at MUSC or CofC. If anything, the low rents they just eliminated in the old Sgt. Jasper now forced people who perhaps lived there and worked downtown to move off the peninsula and drive to work.

Re: “A few thoughts on the Sgt. Jasper PUD parking spin

Great column today by Mr. Wooten. Although he did seem to drink the Beach Co. Kool-Aid; he did make a great point by mocking what could be built there with the current Limited Business Zoning. The neighborhood has a problem with 450 ppl living there, but what if, as Mr. Wooten states, a mini golf or strip mall were built there. You know, things legally allowed in the LB Zoning.

Re: “Today's 'freezing rain' closings explained

"Jaxx just gave all y'all the COLD hard facts on school closings here and why."

Haha ya those were some great facts.

Let's start with "children from less fortunate families without proper foul weather gear aren't left standing outside all morning waiting on a bus"

I guess there are no northern less fortunate families, all the poor have only huddled together here in the lowcountry! All those damn yankees have thick luxurious fur coats made from them animals they trapped!

We wouldnt want to fix the piss-poor road system and infrastructure, let's just close shit up when it is freezing rain outside!

"packing up all of your belongings, leaving behind all of your family and friends, and moving 800 miles south to escape the cold?"
WHat is the issue with that? Ever heard of moving for job re-location? Military retirement? Retirement? Nothing AlexM or I stated said anything about loving our previous locations any more than we love here. We just find it ridiculous that people cant drive when it rains outside or is slippery, majority of the rest of the country can why can't we here?

"You tough yankees sure know how to handle cold weather"
Grew up in it, worked in Alaska, and Norway while in the military, and hate everything about the cold. Hence why I am here. I am acclimated to the warmth and probably hate this weather as much as a born and bred local!

Re: “A few thoughts on the Sgt. Jasper PUD parking spin

There's more to the mix of residents in the "affected" areas than just the well-to-do, but certainly more well-to-do than not. Many have lived in the area for decades before million dollar homes were the norm. These are their life-long communities. That being said, your take on parking is correct. Those supposed new bikers won't find any bike lines to ride on. No access is going to be created for all of these biking folks. Where would you put bike lines when the streets are strewn with cars already and two cars cannot pass between them? Put in the same amount of apartment as existed before. Toss in a couple dozen expensive townhomes for profit and be done with it.

Re: “After seven years of sampling Charleston's finest fare, a critic bids adieu

"The friendly staff means well, and they don't intend offense when they remove the sticky knife from your appetizer plate and flop it onto the tablecloth. "
The words above summarize a reason that many people like myself avoid food critic reviews. Having been in the military for 20 years I had the opportunity to eat fantastic food all over the world and the majority of time it was in hole-in-the-wall places where you were not concerned so much about the decor, ambience,level of poshness, or even the service but what the damn food tastes like. I am all for eating local, and knowing what you are eating but statements like Ima's about understanding your food, give me a break. I agree with katzeye, everyone has a voice in food. Let's keep it simple, food is meant to taste good and bring people together. Would you rather take multiple reviews from everyday diners on websites like Urban spoon or listen to one critic who has a deep knowledge and understanding of the origin of rice pilaf?

Re: “A few thoughts on the Sgt. Jasper PUD parking spin

All of the people currently being priced out of the Sgt. Jasper and other similar locations on the peninsula are going to be moving in droves to places like Park Circle, pricing out the people currently living there without a hint of irony. The priced-out Park Circle people will move to Awendaw, pricing out those hillbillies (who will move into the dark recesses of Francis Marion Forest, living off bobcats and bootstraps). And then all of the people who moved to Awendaw will complain there is not enough infrastructure to support the influx of people, thus clamoring for more development, all the while complaining about all of these new people moving into Awendaw (people who are trying to escape the Beach Company's urban sprawl themselves) and the cycle will begin anew.

Re: “Cactus Car Wash

I read the other reviews, was hesitant to go, but did not feel like driving further to other locations, at a little bit lower price and less work to be done. I have neglected the interior of my car for a while now, and just wanted it cleaned. I went with the full detail package, so they would shampoo seats and flooring. I arrived, Met Eric, (Sales) and standing out in 34 degree weather, he could not BE more friendlier, or more courteous than he was. My car was taken into the wash, and just the exterior, upon departure was impressive. Will ( General Manager) started the vacuuming process, drying the vehicle and spent considerable time on the interior, with Quashawn and Anthony Assisting him. Anthony then took my vehicle off to be detailed on the interior. While waiting for the car, Will ( GM) continuously kept me updated on the work, and the timing, When I received my car, I was speechless. I was in a state of truly being amazed. we both (will and I) checked over the car, not a single spot on the exterior, they even went so far as to buff out two scratches on the door, that I had been unable to get out, and once I opened the door and looked inside, my true amazement was evident to the crew standing by. I felt like I received my car off the Showroom floor...It truly looked like it was a brand new vehicle.....GREAT JOB Will and crew.....
