Re: “Dirty Billy's Hats opens on Church Street this Saturday

Glad to see a quality store coming to Charleston instead of more tacky and tourist orientated junk stores and over priced coffee shops.

Re: “Charleston City Council gives final approval to new carriage horse heat standards

The paaaage of this cynical, cruel ordinance gives Charleston the dubious honor of enacting the HARSHEST temperature ordinance in the nation. The temperature gauge is located FOUR stories atop a hotel. Not where the horses work. No other City in the US requires FOUR readings.
As for the cost of the Ad, part of the Animal Society's mission is to speak out for animals when they see abuse. Surely the Counciman understands that. And while we are at it, ask the Councilman how much the City pays the Animal Society to accept stray animals off the streets of Charleston? Maybe there needs to be a course for Councilmen on City obligations met and unmet before remarks are hurled at public meetings.

Re: “Charleston City Council gives final approval to new carriage horse heat standards

To the "all those people hollering" guy: No one can address every animal situation in the world. It takes money, time and volunteers. I am a volunteer for animals at Charleston Animal Society. You can help, too, by volunteering. And you can, as an individual, make a formal complaint when you see animal neglect or abuse. It will definitely be addressed. "Saving one animal won't change the world, but it will change the world for that one animal." Do what you can to make a difference.

Re: “Charleston City Council gives final approval to new carriage horse heat standards

All these people hollering about what's best for the carriage horses just cracks me up! Why don't they holler about the fancy-pants show horses out at the big horse show on Seabrook Island every summer? Those horses come from all over & spend their days sweating bullets while they jump over huge fences at breakneck paces.
Let's not forget the cute little ponies being shown off by their cute little riders. The ponies are also sweating up a storm, as are the kids.
Now THERE'S a bunch of critters we should be looking into!

Re: “Dirty Billy's Hats opens on Church Street this Saturday

As a frequent customer to the Gettysburg store when I am in town, I can't think of a better addition to downtown Charleston. Hats are practical, hats are personal and hats are fun. I am looking forward to getting something from the new store.

Re: “Herb Silverman's newest essay collection suggests how we can be "good without God"

There has never been a valid figure for non believers and there never will be for valid reasons. (like decapitation or flaying for heretics and apostates) A goal for humanists is to find fellow men and women of like mind.

Re: “Why the best year in South Carolina's filmmaking history might be its last good year

Excellent work, Ms. Spitz, in shedding light on this charged subject in your debut story for CCP. Your writing is refreshing, insightful, and appears to be carefully researched. I have followed your work from your previous engagement with Willamette Week in Portland, Oregon. Great to have young writers with substance, style, and class. Brava!

Congrats to Michael Campina for his outstanding photography -

Re: “Here are the 30 soft-shell crabs a Charleston man ate in two weeks

Left off the best place of all. I will now begrudgingly share it with y'all because I already got all of mine, cleaned them and froze them, all 60 of them. Livingston's Bulls Bay Seafood in McClellanville. Pay the same price that the restaurants do, 4 bucks a crab, don't matter if y'all the big time famous chef or the small time crab eater. I do this every year. I love the Livingston family. Simple Carolina Softshells: Get em alive, bring a cooler, home they go, cut off their mean little mugs, clean em good, blot dry. Wrap in wax paper, them aluminum foil, pop in freezer. When ready, defrost, egg wash, light flour, saut, on to soft white bread and a little of the classic, elegant, condiment found in every good Southern chef's fridge - Dukes, no need for any extra bullshit on these babies. Why ruin a good thing. I'll be eating these in June with the first tomatoes and straight through the summer.

Re: “Why the best year in South Carolina's filmmaking history might be its last good year

I sure hope they smarten up and get us on par with Georgia and No. Carolina and do it quickly. There are a lot of us here whose lives depend on it. I too am in the industry and would love to see more work here for everyone. This is a non brainer. Great incentives, more jobs more revenue it really is that simple.
It brings more goodness than not.

Re: “Herb Silverman's newest essay collection suggests how we can be "good without God"

"I'm agnostic. I'm one of those wishy-washy irreligious folks who doesn't quite want to claim the title of "atheist.""

Okay, so if you aren't an atheist, which god do you believe in? Because agnosticism doesn't address the issue of faith - it's about knowledge, and EVERYONE is agnostic, whether they adopt the label or not, because it's impossible to know everything about anything.

You either believe in a god, or you don't. There is no wishy-washy middle ground.
