Re: “Mozzo

I've been there for breakfast just about monthly since they opened, and I love, love, love their bagel sandwiches and breakfast burritos. The portions are large, and they don't skimp on the more expensive parts of the recipe (lox, et cetera).

My only knock on them is that the ordering/service flow isn't logical and sometimes that means a while before your order is taken. But it is never really a "problem."

Overall: big fan.

Re: “Donald Trump wants to throw flag-burners in jail, but technically South Carolina has an old law that would do just that

@Truthrus: Hillary's bill protected flag burning in protest while criminalizing it in provocation. "Fighting words" are not protected speech. Points deducted for making it a bill, points deducted for making it a bill that is redundant, points awarded for protecting the right to protest. Trump's real problem statement is revocation of citizenship, which takes this from "ill advised" to "disastrous." Did Hillary include that in the SB she sponsored? Would you agree that Trump's idea is thus absolutely worse?

@Frank: I am a veteran and I have a deep and abiding belief in protection of unpopular speech, including burning the flag. My feelings are not what need protecting from the government, but instead peoples' right to express their grievances. So even if I was made to feel sick by seeing it, I feel sick about a lot of the protected speech that flies around this country.

Re: “Prepare for religious-based registrations under Trump

It is really difficult to believe all these things that Trump literally said on the record that Ali is riffing on. Right, guys?

I feel like Ali is being a bit racially myopic, though. The largest majority-Muslim nation on earth is not in the Middle East, nor North Africa. It is Indonesia! And since nuance is not a trait commonly associated with racial vigilantism, plus the fact that Indonesian use of common, family surnames is quite limited, that means a lot of East Asian people are going to have to move into the camps along with you. Just for a spell, of course. You know, until they get the system down and get all the kinks of the loyalty oaths and family background checks and whatnot.

It really seems like the job growth sector that President Donald J. Trump will really foster growth in is DHS. The incoming head of DHS explicitly stated that he visualizes imprisoning up to a million American citizens without trial by suspending habeas corpus and shipping them to GITMO or other offshore justice dispensaries. That's a jobs program, right there.

Re: “Details on the transfer of power from Joe Pasta to JohnKing Grill + Bar

A burger with fries for $8 while still ridiculous is well below the downtown market rate.

Ultimately it comes down to this: why aren't Charlestonians making un-fancy, reasonably-priced pub food a good business choice for restaurateurs? Volume begets deals.

Re: “Donald Trump wants to throw flag-burners in jail, but technically South Carolina has an old law that would do just that

I just hope that this rhetorical hand job was pleasing to its intended audience. Burning the flag in protest is protected speech as a matter of settled case law, but also revocation of citizenship is forbidden as a violation of the 8th Amendment as a matter of settled case law.

In unrelated news, Trump Org settled a fraud case with the state of NY for $25 million dollars, something that would normally flag a company as "never do business with these people again" under federal contracting practices. Welcome to Trump's America.

Re: “The search for solutions to the restaurant staffing crisis continues

The parking issue that WJH mentioned is nothing to scoff at. As a musician, I get to talk to the FOH and BOH staff after closing and the financial burden of parking costs, citations for expired meters, and the like cuts into wages very significantly. For workers that arrive at 4pm when the city is still full of day staff and leave at 10:30 all the way out to 3:00am, there isn't even a public option. The city absolutely must recognize that if it is going to balance the economy on server's trays, it needs to take some of the burden off their backs.
