Re: “20+ Charlestonians we miss the most

My fondest memory of Greenberg was seeing someone point out one Sunday morning to the chief that he was going the wrong way down Market St. His reply? "Call a fucking cop!" Yup, he was one of my role models.

Re: “Our top 20 all-time biggest Best of Charleston winners

my perennial beef for 20 years - I grew up in a Sicilian enclave in Upstate NY, lived and worked in the City and Long Island, and never saw "New York style pizza" until I came to Charleston. This sad excuse isn't like anything you'll actually find in NY. Try Giovanni's - it's the closest you'll find south of Lyndhurst.

Re: “20+ Charlestonians we miss the most

I forgot to mention egomaniac. By far the most unprofessional traffic stop by the most unprofessional police officer ever.
He should have been released from police force way before the screaming at the senile incident.
Greenberg was a disgrace to both the police force and the City of Charleston.

Re: “20+ Charlestonians we miss the most

Reuben Greenberg was a whacko and an asshole. Having been pulled over by him for no reason other than his entertainment once, I'm here to say that it is not a good idea to let someone with a gun, badge, and early onset alhzheimers run loose.
No telling what would have happened that night if a sheriff's deputy hadn't shown up.

Re: “Our 20 most beloved trolls

Solid list. But how are you gonna call William Hamilton a troll? That's just a legit good guy who cares about his fellow man and wants the best for them.

Should've kept him off the list and added yourself. After all, you did leave Kinsey Gidick in charge. Now that's trolling.

Re: “Our 20 most beloved trolls

Thank you for adding one more typo for the road. It has been a pleasure pointlessly arguing with the others on this page for years.

You lost many of the old regulars when you tried to force them to join Facebook, me included.
I only came back once I could use Google to sign in.

Re: “As sea levels rise, changes to the Low Battery will likely reverberate across the city

Climate science is best left to back-of-the-envelope figgerin' by uneducated laymen, and certainly not anything worth planning around. All the PhDs are full of sh*t; I mean, why would they even know the first thing about climate systems or science at all? Those eggheads think they're so smart; it is really elitist and condescending to look to them to explain all this. It is the streetwise bubba that we should be trusting. Also Sean Hannity, the $15M New York entertainer and not some East-coast media elite that leads the way.

Re: “As sea levels rise, changes to the Low Battery will likely reverberate across the city

"Sea levels rise" is more likely due to the increased amount of building and the associated concrete paving on the peninsula and surrounding area, which causes rain run off to empty quicker into the Cooper and the Ashley Rivers (rather than gradually as in the past when it soaked into the the ground). Not the melting of Arctic ice, which is made up for by the corresponding simultaneously growth of Antarctic sea ice.

Worse, they'll build up the battery area when the high tide comes in up by the bridge or even up through sewers. Good luck and here goes hundreds of millions in government waste.

Fake News for sure. There is no rising sea level and none expected. Check out the NASA stats if you need real data to correct your misinformed Libertard brainwashed BS.

Re: “If the Confederacy had won, slavery would have continued in the South

Perhaps the greatest problem with the arguing over the Civil War is that each person begins by applying 21st Century Morality, Worldview, Anthropology, and notions of social justice on a world that had not yet arrived there in most places. Slavery, while abhorrent, was common among most of the world's population; both white and non-white.

It seems that some people want to diminish the role of slavery in this nation's history including in leading to the Civil War to far; and others want to tear down everyone associated with this Nation's founding because of something they said or did; portraying them as no better than the worst of humanity. It is an effort in futility and does nothing to push forward the conversation.

Re: “Yoga is taking over Charleston on the DL

The Charleston yoga community is truly a wonderful & inclusive family of diverse people. The teachers I've had the pleasure of practicing with are consistent in their faithfulness to the roots of yoga & inspiring in the way they each bring their own personality to the practice!
