I think the comment was that when there is a sidewalk or pathway specifically for pedestrians/bikers, that it is safer than balancing on the white line forcing cars to swerve around that person. I think most of us understand road rules, but this one is common sense. I also enjoy riding my bike around but I am totally aware that I am not going to put my life on the line for some punk assed kid who is texting as they zoom by me.
Personally, I think this is becoming a huge issue in Mt. Pleasant. This area was one of the fastest growing cities in America during the boom. Now it looks like an open house convention. I was driven out of my home during one of the apartments turned condo events that became common place here. For people who wanted to rent, the options where dismal. I had a friend who moved from one complex because it was turning into condo's only to find out a month later, the one she moved to was also turning into condo's. Moving is expensive, disruptive and stressful. Lower income families need homes. Why not force the banks, who thrived on our bailouts, to provide a certain percentage of their property holdings to lower income families? Not for FREE, just reasonable! Instead, the empty condos and homes remain empty. Neighborhoods are loosing property value because of these abandoned homes. Make them give back!
Im thinking I should of gone out after all. Apparently, there was some show!
mrwhitsie - I can't compare the children I raised to the dogs I own. The comparison just doesn't work.
Daisy's Mom - I agree dogs are social creatures. We walk for an hour EVERY morning in a neighborhood full of other social creatures. Trust me they get their time in on the social scene.
I think it is about expectation. If I go to a dog park I expect to be around dogs. If I go to a hardware store I expect to see hammers. If I have dog hair allergies, as does my brother, I expect to be able to go buy a hammer without running into dogs. Simple. Just think of second hand smoke and the right to not be bombarded by someone else's desire. Consider the asthmatics who like to shop too. Just consider that your dog isn't as cute to everyone else as he is to you and give it a break.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE Boone Hall Farms! I have been a huge fan of the U-Pick offerings and I love to see parents with children taking the opportunity to educate their children about where our food comes from, it's priceless! I join my daughters for lunch at the restaurant, and have never had a disappointing meal.
