Re: “Crust

We had such high hopes for this restaurant based on the CCP's write-up, especially since it said Crust has more than 20 beers on tap (http://www.charlestoncitypaper.com/Eat/archives/2013/02/11/crust-opens-tuesday-on-james-island). Well, they only have 6, and they are 6 pretty uninspired ones at that. The bottled beer selection wasn't much better. We started with the Bibb and beet salad, which was very good. The pizzas, however, were disappointing - quite blackened (we know, they're cooked in a wood-fire oven, but does that mean they have to be black?) and really not enough of the toppings. The crustacean 'za was better than the butternut one which had just the slightest smattering of vegetables on it - not enough to get past the "charcoal" taste. As I said, we had high hopes, but we won't be back. :-(

Re: “In this era of helicopter parenting, letting your children play is a crime

The sadder thing is what this leads to: kids who can't think for themselves or do just about anything independently. They don't know how to make decisions or assess risk. They either can't form their own opinions or, if they can, they don't trust them. This is the real tragedy of helicopter parenting.I have been a teacher for over 30 years and now believe that teaching critical thinking is more important than just about any content.

Re: “Charleston Pride moves downtown for its fourth year

"Rumbles from area churches"? "Hellfire and brimstone crowd"? Do you know that the local churches - including the Unitarian church, Circular, Unity, and others - are some of the most vocal supporters of the LGBT movement in this city? Each year, the UU church has a huge contingent in the Pride Parade. Please do not condemn with a broad stroke - exactly, I believe, what you are implying the "area churches" do.
