Both of the shrimp sandwiches here are fantastic, and they make some really fun condiments (sweet potato-garlic kimchi, sweet onion-mustard relish, etc.). I also like their green beans and their macaroni salad with pineapple and green chilies. I haven't been as impressed with their fries or chips so far (too soggy one time, too dry another), but I imagine they'll work out those kinks, soon, if they haven't already. This place is a great option on Johns Island.

This is such a sad case all around, and I'm inclined to agree that moving Veronica again is likely to make it even sadder. If she has considered Dusten Brown her father for two years, leaving him now could be very damaging for her. Still, I feel like it's not right to argue that the Capobiancos ought to give up their case now without at least acknowledging that Brown could/should have done the same thing two years ago. Taking a two-year old from the people she considers mom and dad is traumatizing, too; giving up his custody claim after the legal battles stretched into Veronica's second year would have been terrible for Brown, but better for his daughter (especially with the complete lack of a transition period between households). The law isn't a good reason to put a child through hell, but neither is biology.
I went tonight after reading your impressions and was really pleased! The vegetable stew was wonderful and my husband enjoyed the catfish. It seems like this could be a great neighborhood restaurant.
Wow, sunnymoon. I am disturbed by almost everything you said in your post, but here's the line I'll single out for comment: "Gay or not we all sin, gay just happens to be the one I don't want to hear about." Really? Hearing about same sex coupling bothers you more than hearing about murder, rape, child abuse, or other violent crimes? If that truly is the case, your sense of proportion is what seems "gross" to me.
On a less serious note, Deidre Schipani's restaurant reviews for the P&C are some of the worst I've read. Their content consistently is uninspiring, and she either ignores or doesn't know many basic rules of grammar. I often wonder where her copy editors are, and how hard it would be for me to snag her job. ;)
It seems to me that providing school lunches to needy children would be the kind of welfare policy that even the most conservative individual could support. It offers an opportunity to help children without giving their parents an opportunity to misuse the aid. Efficient, abuse-resistant help is the best kind our government can give. So why, of all the programs out there, pick on the school lunches?
