Re: “After 37 years, Norm's has closed making way for Smith Street Pizza

What bs. My uncle never made hoagies it's called subs like the name Norms sub shop. This new place will never be like my uncles. What the new owners did was so dirty. Hell you even spelled HANF wrong. Our family is very hurt and disgusted. Norms name might be gone off the building but it will be forever in everyone's heart. By the way smith street pizza place your on Flippin Calhoun st. Your welcome

Re: “Combating drug-facilitated rape in Charleston

Thank you so much for publishing this story. I was drugged as a CofC freshman at a King Street bar. I was picked up by an ambulance and taken to the hospital (Charleston Memorial? I don't remember). The hospital wrote "extreme intoxication" on my file. They didn't check anything else, most notably my raised heart rate. I was sent home with a mark from the IV and nothing else.

Not only was the situation distressing and expensive but it stayed on my record for years. It made it difficult to get insurance because of my "substance abuse." I'm so glad that someone is paying attention to what's happening at downtown bars.

Re: “After 37 years, Norm's has closed making way for Smith Street Pizza

How horrible! Norman and Susie HANF live above the shop and you couldn't be bothered to interview the people that had the business for 37 years. It went "quietly" because the new owners told us they didn't want anyone to know they were taking over because they claimed they would keep everything the same. Disrespectful and dishonest people in there now! By the way, You spelled Norman and Susie's last name wrong. I am totally disgusted about how the new people have treated my family. oh and fyi 2000 isn't vintage... the pool table was removed in 2013 because we needed MORE seating not less. Shame on you for not interviewing the LOCALS that started the place and made it an icon.

Re: “After 37 years, Norm's has closed making way for Smith Street Pizza

Sad!! Tried their "hoagies" and it was plain disappointing!! Bread left a lot to be desired and the selection was just like any generic franchised sub place! The rolls and sandwiches that Norms provided were LOCALS favorites!! When will these transplants learn!! I love Normandy farms, but I don't want a freaking "French" baked roll on my AMERICAN style hoagie!! Bring back the true hoagie bread, bologna and variety! The locals may comeback as well! Sad day in the Lowcountry!

Re: “After 37 years, Norm's has closed making way for Smith Street Pizza

But why can't D'Al's have a broader menu up here in their own neighborhood (Cannonborough-Elliotborough)? Darn it if there weren't times that I wanted a good hoagie, or some wings -- like during the Super Bowl -- and none were to be found for delivery nearby or from a local business. I try to support my neighbors and local businesses, but they have to offer what we want.

Re: “Boeing workers may soon vote on decision to unionize

Sigh, we already went through this last round with Boeing. WTF is up Boeing with all the propaganda constantly once again to the general public? That TV ad is moronic. That P & C "opinion" piece yesterday by your P & C boot licking lackey was the biggest pile of horse shit yet. Just like last time, who are those BS ads aimed at? Are your employees sheeple that must be led? Have they no cognitive ability to make choices? Can you not bribe them with small raises? Perhaps you may want to consider paying them a little closer to what their Seattle counterparts make? Our cost of living is just as high as Seattle in Charleston (or it feels that way). The more Boeing squawks, squeaks and flops around the more we smell something bad. No ads on TV or in print and none of us would even notice y'all, except for when we pass you on our way to the airport. Most of us could give a good rats ass about your Union battle, keep it internal. Talk among yourselves and quit bothering the rest of us. We got our own problems.

Re: “The Break

Best Caf and small live music venue to open its doors to Charleston in 10 years, at least. Garrett is the very hard working owner that practices what he believes, and Heather, as well as many of the other employees, make this place more welcoming than most of the customers deserve.
These are great people doing a great thing, really..., because they just love it. I wish and hope nothing but the absolute best for all of them, as well as the business itself. I know I support them as often as possible and so should everyone else. This is the type of place that defines Charleston, the kind of place tourists imagine visiting and experiencing when they come to visit. The Caf is what it is without pomp or that aloof hipster entitlement.
They like good beverages, comfortable furniture and great music, and they want to share it all with you...just walk in and let them. You'll feel better for doing so because you will be better for doing so.

Re: “Attorneys for Michael Slager ask that his statements to investigators be excluded from federal trial

As we've said before, why are police investigative tactics suddenly bad when they are used against police?

Slager would make a fine addition to the Trump administration, not wanting people to use his own words against him. And mark my words, one of two things is going to happen. Either our lovely new AG is going to press on federal prosecutors to drop the case, or if he is eventually convicted, he will be pardoned.

Re: “Boeing workers may soon vote on decision to unionize

I think it's good for the workers' fight to be made public. If they are successful, maybe it will inspire and help other groups become engaged in collective bargaining. I understand unions are not popular here, but collective bargaining is more than just lazy people wanting more money for less work. It's about ensuring safe and ethical working conditions and protections against corporate intimidation and malfeasance in addition to compensating people in a more reasonable manner. If corporations like Boeing want to continue to be subsidized by the government and taxpayer for their operations and losses, they can afford to utilize more their profits on their worker's qualities of life, while still making millions and billions of dollars for themselves.

Re: “A letter from an Iranian American to Charleston

@Delana - why does he describe himself as half-Iranian, half-Latino instead of 100% pure-beef American? Because 100% pure-beef Americans in general don't let him forget it. "Immigrants are ruining this country. Muslims are ruining this country. Latinos are ruining this country. Sharia law! Jobs! Illegals!"
"Hey, I'm an immigrant, and a Muslim, and a Latino..."
"WHY WON'T YOU JUST ACCEPT BEING AN AMERICAN."

Put yourself in someone else's shoes. It isn't that hard.

Re: “A letter from an Iranian American to Charleston

"Since when did loving your country & being patriotic become so taboo"

There is nothing wrong with loving your country. There is a huge problem with being blind to its faults. The people who created this country were pretty clear on their thoughts regarding fear being used to strip away freedoms. And they established a very intricate system of checks and balances to make sure rights were preserved.

Our current administration seems to have no interest in, or doesn't understand that. Trump wants to rule by decree and try to silence and intimidate anyone who tells him no. We aren't even 100 days into the administration and how many things have already been proven that Trump and his advisers have lied about? They are constantly using fear and misinformation so people will easily surrender the rights you claim to love. That is not freedom. That is nothing to love or be patriotic about.

Re: “Boeing workers may soon vote on decision to unionize

While I appreciate Boeing's local presence (except for the free infrastructure and tax-exempt status), I have grown tired and weary of the constant barrage of tit-for-tat on the public airwaves. I, as a non-Boeing affiliated member of the public, would like to suggest we have one more vote; put to the public instead of the private yea/nay voters within the ranks of Boeing. I say we vote to ban public ads related to union voting. I, in no way, am affected by the vote except to have to deal with the unending onslaught of hateful ads. Boeing and the IAM need to keep their pleas WITHIN the walls of Boeing. VOTE ALREADY, STFU AND LEAVE THE PUBLIC OUT OF IT!
