Bad comment #2 in a row. Expect another glowing review from someone who has never posted on CCP imminently.

Re: “Constantly asking restaurants to give freebies to charities has got to stop

As someone who knows - I was in retail management for 30 years - this is not something effecting just the restaurant industry. I would bet that in my 30 years I never saw a month go by without at least 2 or 3 requests for donations. If you have a successful-appearing business this happens to everyone. So , I guess my question is, does the columnist really think this only happens to restaurants or are they somehow a more "special" case?

Re: “When Charleston County Council codes of conduct act as chains

Oh, I get it. Cigarettes are taboo now, so foul language will make us cool.

Re: “Charleston City Council approves lower heat limits for carriage horses

"I dont know if yall remember last summer and you can blame it on whatever you want but I believe the climate is changing on this planet and its getting hotter, said Mayor John Tecklenburg. We need to be sensitive to the temperature to the horses and their working conditions."
OK, the climate is getting hotter. So the horses are losing heat tolerance because the temperatures are rising? I'll bet 98 degrees this Summer effects the horses exactly the same as it has for the last 20 years.
Apparently the Mayor thinks that horses handle the same temperatures differently from before if the average temperature rises. Mayor, whether the industry needs stricter regulations or not may need consideration, but your comment in relation to the argument is just plain stupid
