No, I am much happier with Charleston McRib-free days.
Thank you for a thought provoking and touching story. This disease impacts people all over the Lowcountry as well. Not to detract from the fine efforts of Mr. Coon, but would it have been possible to make mention of the local efforts being done to help combat this disease? The 8th annual Band Together for ALS fundraiser concert is happening tomorrow Saturday, October 25th 6-11 pm at The Brick House Kitchen on Folly Road.
I thank the Charleston City Paper for their efforts in previous years to help promote this great cause and although there is a blurb on page 79 among the music listings, some of us don't get to the back half of the city paper until Sunday morning.
Interested parties can make donations and purchase tickets at www.bandtogetherforALS.com and visit the event facebook page to see the various items donated for a raffle. At the time of this post the tally so far is $5,735 raised toward the event goal of raising $20,000. I encourage anyone so inclined to visit the website and plan on coming out tomorrow for a great cause and great music from local artists, many of whom are previous winners or in the running for this year's City Paper Music Awards.
Cherny is actively seeking funding... for a total of $680 dollars so he can print up yard signs. Yes, $680. He is not asking for money for TV ads, he is not asking for PAC support. Anyone here care to help out?
Amanda, congratulations on knowing everything and everyone at your tender age. Come speak to me in a dozen years and we'll see how you feel. All snark aside, congratulations on your early graduation and watch out for burnout.
Most of the people I know complaining about this are the 30-40 somethings who work hard all week and like to blow off a little steam on the weekends. The remainder are F&B folks who get off work at 11 and would like to have a meal after midnight at a restaurant without a drive-thru lane.
To FairGayme, I really should know better than to feed the trolls but here goes. I'll assume you have never had a chance to sit down and talk with Dwayne. He has been active in local politics for years, and has been consistent in his calling for the old guard to be replaced. We have done a lot worse than Dwayne for at least the last 2 terms.
