Re: “Ep. 4 Recap: We’ve cracked the Reckless formula

It's a VERY important part of any show set in the South's "formula" to show that's it hot, humid, sticky, etc.

Because, it's always like that here and never anywhere else.

I think Matlock started it?

Re: “City to propose 3-year ban on bars

I admit, I've not made closing time downtown in years. So, I've got no dog in this fight (though I used to walk out of bars on Sat morning when the sun was up, before there was a closing time!).

So, as an observer, this is fascinating to watch. The general, theoretical goal seems good - of course a mix of different types of business is desired.

The realities in terms of business economics and the city's methodologies seem all dicked up, though!

Re: “Vincent Sheheen campaign manager: Candidate non-committal about gay marriage ruling

Our friends should understand our party's platform without candidates in problematic areas being forced to energize the most virulent voter bases of their opponents.
Certainly they should understand exactly what the platform of the only other possible winner will be.

Steeeeee-rike Twoooooooo Mayor Joe.
Is waiting 3 years really a plan? You know you can give out liquor licenses every year you just don't have to give out 20.

Wow, when I went to a Rainbows game circa 1987 I had NO IDEA how gay they were! Closeted baseball.

Re: “Talking with a historian about Charleston's episode of "Drunk History"

Just watched it. On the Watties Waring skit the flags in the courtroom were for NC and the USA. WTF.....the SC flag isn't that hard to find. Every jag off from Ladson has a flag sticker on their cooler and truck.
And the drunks. Were they even local? John Polk the carriage driving drunkard would have been the best selection.
On a scale of 0 to TRav this episode was a 3.

Re: “Vincent Sheheen campaign manager: Candidate non-committal about gay marriage ruling

The most reliable Democratic voters are African Americans. If they mobilize, Sheheen has a chance.
And guess what? The Democrats least likely to accept homosexuality are African Americans. It's a terrible dilemma. As a Democrat this sort of thing discourages me from engaging in the process. I'd love to see some adults and high-paid party politicians step up and talk about this disconnect.

Re: “Appeals court ruling could bring gay marriage to S.C.

Brewengineer,

Anyone that has read the Old Testament knows that marriage predated the birth of Christ. If you'd educate yourself, you'd be less prone to making ignorant comments.

Re: “Vincent Sheheen campaign manager: Candidate non-committal about gay marriage ruling

He's appealing to a Republican base, while ignoring his own. No confidence in being a Democrat? Then, why pretend?

Re: “City to propose 3-year ban on bars

Seriously, what's the difference between the re-zoning thing and this moratorium??? Why was the F&B crowd against the initial attempt but is ok with this? It's just re-wording the initial plan-except now F&B is ok with it??? WTF

This is not public planning. This is disaster relief.

Re: “Tom Ervin does what Sheheen, Haley won't — welcomes gay marriage ruling

I am liking Tom for his common sense approach. He is a born again Christian who does not let his personal religious beliefs overshadow the constitutional rights of others. At last, a SC politician living in the 20th century. I will also be voting for him because he will finally rid us of the moronic common core standards.

Re: “City to propose 3-year ban on bars

First for the writer to start with being a DEM. The city of Charleston Government like the Mayor and Council are DEM'S! REPUBLICANS would not vote to have a limit on hours to do business and your comment about your politics in the beginning of this article was not needed except to say conservatives are doing this when that is not the case.
