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: “The cash being raised in the mayor's race is insane

Nofaith that is a meaningless and stupid response, even for you. The fact that Mat does or does not vote changes the narrative not at all... in fact he didn't delve into political views that would normally separate you from him by whatever the limits of the scale in play are. If you mean that "more money in politics doesn't matter" then say so and resist the temptation to shoot the messenger.

The comparative spending among similarly-sized cities in similar situations is actually pretty surprising, if you ask me. Some people with money to spare have their eyes set on some down-the-road favors if you ask me. Woo hoo! Democracy inaction.

Re: “S.C. lawmaker proposes firing squad as death penalty option

The death penalty in this country is a travesty of justice, doled out capriciously and seemingly at random in some cases but not others. It doesn't bring the victims back, it has no effect on violent crime, and we have most assuredly executed innocent people. There is no going back from it.

That being said, if we are going to continue to employ it, I see no reason to hide behind the seeming cleanliness of lethal injection merely to assuage our guilt at a barbaric act. The firing squad is a violent, bloody, but quick death that doesn't hide its true nature. Lethal injection paralyzes the subject as they get to experience their own slow death in a way that looks to observers as peaceful and serene. "See, we're not the brutal killers, he's as docile as a lamb as he goes."

For the record, the guillotine was also developed to be more humane because that's a damn quick kill, messy though it may be. Who says that executioners shouldn't literally have blood on their hands? They're carrying out state-sponsored executions, after all.

Re: “The media, elected officials unite with big business to oppose unions

I feel like I heard Governor Haley speak in explicitly anti-union ads for Boeing. Like you said, that's been confirmed as well within her rights, I've just never heard an elected official be so extremely clear in such an anti-union advertisement.

Nothing should surprise me, though, because everything is at least a little bit different here.

Re: “The Fat Radish's Ben Towill will develop new hotel restaurant

Good burn, Kinsey, although it is interesting that you're criticizing his word choice as defamatory when he was actually advocating for diversity in our local kitchens. "Colored people, GASP! They are people of color, you dinosaur! I will now ignore the point of what you said!"

Re: “#SouthofBroadLivesMatter

Fish Pimp I'll make you a modest proposal that you should re-read this article to determine who exactly is being satirized.
