That is why if you want the most excellent taco, you need to go to Taco Boy on Folly Beach.
“$7.25? Ain't nobody can live that like,” Maria said. Maria, you should learn to speak proper English and maybe, just maybe, you'll graduate from McDonald's and get a better paying job. Until then be happy with your $7.25 and yes, I'll take fries with that.
And to the person yelling, “My baby needs clothes", you have no business having babies if you can't afford to clothe them and if you're working at McDonald's for $7.25 an hour the answer is no, you can't afford to clothe them.
Why are cops assholes?
I haven't been there in years but I imagine
I like that.
Just wait until you have a family member falsely accused of something and they hold that person in jail until they can coerce a guilty plea out of them. You will change your mind about their "get a conviction no matter what" attitude, whether they have the right person in jail or not. It is sickening! I don't trust law enforcement any further than I can throw them for they are power-hungry for the most part.
The street sweeping is 100% profit driven. $45 tickets, twice a week per district. They write about $30,000 a month worth of tickets just for street sweeping. Do the math!
lol $15 an hour... a graphic designer with a 4 year degree makes $12 to start, a secretary starts with $10, a receptionist with computer skills $12, a sub teacher $14. These people are funny... why would anyone go to college at all then?
Scratch is DEFINITELY worse than Taco Boy! The menu is a schizophrenic, confusing mess and the tacos are even worse. The hardest part is that they sound like they're going to be so good... And then they're not. At all.
“If you don't want minimum wage, go to school.”
How about taking some of that fine money and making some signs that say "No parking of bicycles except in bike corrals"? How about tourists, who fund this city? This is another way the stupid police dept. and the city have found to make lots of money on fines. How about if I just moved to Charleston? I agree with the law, but you have to let folks know about it every day, not just on the TV or social media. Old folks don't use the social media like the kids do.
The city recently expanded their areas of street sweeping. We received no less than three paper notices and the city also put up signs along the street. I did not see this on the news, nor on Facebook. Building a couple additional bicycle parking areas is not sufficient notice.
Not everyone has access to a TV to watch the news. I know that I watch TV for one hour a week to watch a specific show, and the only time I am on the internet is to do school work and catch up with friends. Without Mellow Mushroom posting this article and a friend "sharing" it on facebook, I would not have known this existed. Posting signs is not difficult.
Georgetown is a port that would KILL for the kind of business that would come with a busy cruise terminal, if Charleston's "too good" for such riff-raff. Send it on up. Would do another area of the state some good.
Maura: Thank you for your well thought out comments to my article. I've been on The Fantasy 5 times. And, since you've brought that inaccurate assumption that I'm too big of a snob to go on the Fantasy, I am not. However, you did a glowing portrayal of just how wonderful Charleston is. And, frankly, I'm embarrassed that you would not connect my sentiments as being directed at the fact that we have the worst ship in their fleet docked in the Best City for Tourism in America because we can't get our act together and attract more classy ships. Your arguments, while well presented and thoughtful, proved my points exactly. Thanks!
hahaha thats a great question. editor?
With 2 degrees in architecture, it is disappointing that the author hasn't looked more deeply into the construction methods and design of this proposal. She might be surprised by what isn't so obvious from the renderings...
'homogenization, abstraction, and standardization' is not quite how I would think one would describe curving structural concrete walls? It seems like this author is describing the bland Neo-colonial type buildings of the last couple decades seen all over the country. These buildings have been a disservice to the quality of historic structures in our city, and a blight on the perception of contemporary design. These ugly ducklings bring nothing to the conversation in terms of design style or sustainability, and are in sharp contrast to this proposal. A quick glance across George St in the picture above shows a building that is a more deserving recipient of this article; oddly enough it would have a smoother ride through the BAR and public discourse if built today.
Unfortunately this article reads more like a rant then a sensical discussion of the proposed project. Even her descriptions of her education credentials seem contrived.
lol - why did your other posts get removed?
The law was all over the news so people not knowing about it is their own fault. On the other hand, if the law is to prevent bikes from falling over and blocking the sidewalk why not just have that be the law? You can lock your bike to a tree or lamp post but if it falls over it will be picked up, confiscated and you will have to pay a fine.
"I don't know what else we could have done..." You could have posted signs. When I was in college I was studying, working and spending time with friends. No news watching. I can't imagine this didn't occur to them.
