This is really thin. In fact it's thin bordering BS as some of the other commenters have called out. Case in point, "pouring money" into water and sewage infrastructure really doesn't convince me that the city's history was steeped in "progressive politics". What was the alternative, keeping the 'ol outhouse around. I'd make the same type of case against all your other points here. No one in Charleston did anything out of the ordinary in terms of what the rest of the country was doing or going through. In fact show me one activist or "influential leader" here and I'll show you ten in another state. Reform, innovation, infrastructure, and development move at a snails pace in this city. It always has. Even to this day I think the powers that be, call them the old guard if you want, prefer to go backwards in time…too busy admiring their lovely patina to actually do anything all shiny and innovative.
I thought the AC usage in the summer would have far outweighed the usage for heat on one cold day. I mean it's only 20 degrees out and SCE&G is implementing rolling blackout like we are in a third world country short on energy. What a joke. That doesn't speak much of the infrastructure here.
