So I guess I'm a sucker. I saw the bad reviews and figured it couldn't be THAT bad. And if it was I thought it might be fun to see. It's exactly like the negative reviews say. Sorry. Make changes now, before it's too late!
And c'mon, the 5 star reviews from people who obviously are connected to the place (i.e. have only posted one review or 2 and the other was for the Sip in Mt. P.)? That's so 2007!
The Post and Courier has a better (more complete) version of the day's events. I think the real story here is the prosecutors behavior so far. It seems to me she is giving the jury every opportunity to cut Slager a break. At one point yesterday the judge objected to the defense questioning because Wilson either wouldn't or didn't understand that Savage was bullying the witness.
See, this is what you get when your only plan is "No." The Beach Company never should have wasted their time with a neighborhood association that had no direction or strong leadership.
This is the perfect time to ask, "Are you happy now?"
Matt, there's nothing wrong with being wealthy, period. But then come the real qualifiers (your living with yourself notion isn't one of them). There's nothing wrong with being wealthy as long as (a) you came by it honestly, (b) no-one was injured or taken advantage of in your acquiring said wealth and (c) you aren't ashamed of it (this is where Leon apparently slips up). Someone is bound to say "as long as you do good with your wealth," but that's not a legit qualifier for there being something "wrong" with your wealth. It would be great if you did good with your wealth and many wealthy Charlestonians do great things with their wealth indeed but it's their money to do with as they choose.
I have always liked Leon as a guy to say hello to in the back booth at Manny's but he does have an air of being connected to the old Charleston power structure that could go either way.
Charleston has notoriously bad protesters. Occupy Brittlebank was the high water mark of our inability to be impolite. I think the Social Justice Warriors of the Lowcountry should, indeed, learn to either go big or go home.
BTW, The funniest thing you'll ever see is a Charlestonian SJW at a New York protest. It's like a kid being allowed to drive daddy's car.
Double major in creative writing and African American Studies. So writing those signs will be the closest thing she'll ever have to a job in her field.
Kids really need to think about what they major in.
