Re: “Does Chief Mullen want to close all bars at 12? ‘Absolutely no’

The police can give these drunks a ride home, not a ride to jail. Great way tohandle public intoxication.pu

Re: “South Carolina's top five American revolutionaries

There are so many things wrong with this list. Not only the facts, but the personalities. Charles Pinckney didn't have a thing to do with elements of the Pinckney Draft landing in the Constitution. Charles Pinckney was a young and pompous poseur at that time , disdained by the old wise men running the Convention. John Rutledge, Edwards brother, is responsible for that. He headed up the Committee of Detail that identified common elements in the thirteen different proposals on the table at the Constitutional Convention and hashed out a document that everyone could disagree about. That document was the framework for the Constitution as we have it today, making him a framer of the United States Constitution, and it was he who incorporated the Pinckney Draft. He was also President of South Carolina from independence declared on March 26, 1776 and , with a blip in 1779, later Governor who lead the government in exile during the British Occupation. What about Christopher Gadsden? He was a Brigadier General during the Revolution , a delegate to the Stamp Act Congress, he developed a friendship and correspondence with Sam Adams of Massachusetts. As leader of the Liberty Boys, it was Gadsden who coordinated the end of Royal Rule and the Rise of the new Republic of SC. (See J Rutledge). He was advocating an end to colonial rule in the 1760s, a voice in the wilderness at that time. His yellow flag with the rattlesnake has been taken up by the Tea Party Movement. I could go on. Ms Slater, next time you are called on t create a list like this , consult the experts.

Re: “Diving into the legendary Wreck on Shem Creek

I went to the Wreck for the first time in May, and it was pretty good. But if you want good local seafood at a very reasonable price you can't go wrong with Easterby's on Hwy 61.

Re: “James Islander's I-526 documentary looks at impact on properties, habitats

Every single person that was in this film knew that I-526 was coming to a neighborhood near them. As a Savannah Hwy resident near the city, I have watched traffic get just plain stupid over the last 40 years. These people destroy the natural environment buying their new tract houses out on Johns Island and now they are worried about the spoiling the natural environment. Personally, my natural environment has been subject to their idling exhaust as they commute back and forth way too long, and its way past time to move forward with this worthy project.

Re: “Rocky D busts out racist impression in salute to black Confederate

So whats racist about this? Sounds like he stated facts. Was it racist because he's talking about Black Confederates? Not PC to mention their existence?
Still, there are questions to answer. Was this guy a slave? Did he serve of his own free will?
