Do we really think that if the white author depicted an African American female "super hero" punching Donald Trump it would've been more warmly welcomed? If anything, it seems that the whole concept should've been replaced with a more tasteful one.
It's about time...all of this flooding is really taking a toll on the quality of life in West Ashley.

This is a nice rendering, but Jaxx is clearly correct that this has to be a two lane solution to be effective. I'd like to take for granted that our leaders have fully conceived this idea, but we deserve to have it spelled out in detail so we don't all look back on it shaking our heads... especially those most affected.
Thanks brewengineer. I understand your feelings on the issue and it seems that very well may be the case. As a startup owner myself, I see the need for diversity on the Peninsula just as the Mayor and Councilmen do, but I do not see the connection between that need for diversity and the "take it or leave it" demands that the "unnamed high-tech startups" that Chris Haire wrote about. Shouldn't this be a non-issue for other types of businesses wanting to move to the area? It doesn't seem like these are very progressive tech-start ups at least. Very interesting that they would even want to be in the downtown part of a city... I've always applauded Mayor Riley on his work in Charleston and I don't doubt his intentions but it would be nice if they offered a little bit more transparency given the controversial nature of the ordinance - ESPECIALLY when they do something so drastic as to pass a temporary banning new business licenses (despite receiving 1,500 emails in protest).
