Re: “A Second Sunday guide to King Street architecture

It's nice that Evan Thompson is retailing information that could easily be gathered from Buildings of Charleston, the Tour Guide Manual, or even the public library's website. It would be better if he would report on the Preservation Society's doings. They had a day-long "Holy City Initiative." How did that go? What progress on Seven to Save? Will there be a Preservation Progress in my lifetime?

Re: “Charleston, meet your City Council candidates

Fran Clasby doesn't understand the concept of representative government. His neighborhood association voted to oppose the Hampton Park bikelane; he personally got up a petition in favor, then he reminded city council he was the neighborhood assoc president when he presented the petition.

Re: “Nancy Mace: Term limits are the only way to stop the ruling elitists

The US Senate depends on the seniority system. Everything from office assignments to committee memberships is based on seniority - length of time in office. How would you propose reorganizing the Senate if term limits were in effect?

Re: “Charleston needs more contemporary buildings

To JA Liberatos, verbosity is not a virtue. If you can't say it succinctly, you can't say it. Remember that 99.9% of people who interact with any building do so on a physical & visual level. They can't know your opinions and they certainly don't care about them. Brevity is the soul of wit. A picture is worth 1000 words. 140-character tweets can bring down empires. In other words, STFU.

Re: “Charleston needs more contemporary buildings

Nice work, Ms. Power. BAR aborted for lack of quorum.
Posting a selfie is always a bad idea.
"City officials thought they had found a solution by calling former board member and architect Whitney Powers to fill in as an alternate member, but they later learned that Powers already had penned an essay in favor of the Clemson project."
