Re: “Dylann Roof requests new attorneys, declaring appeal team his biological enemies

Dylann Roof is the inevitable byproduct of the "Fox News phenomenon."

Roof and his murderous hatred are the direct consequences of a fake news source that created an environment in which Caucasian hate, anger, resentment, privilege and pettiness could grow, flourish and produce both the vile Presidency of Trump and the ascension of white supremacists in the Republican Party and America.

Dylann Roof is, in essence, the poster child of Fox News. They made him possible. They empowered him.

Re: “Complaints of Irma-related price gouging in South Carolina center on inflated gas and water prices

Charging $4 for a bottle of water during a storm will get you arrested, but charging you $20 for a Tylenol tablet after a car accident is just fine?

Re: “How one Park Circle neighborhood has avoided a potentially messy situation with the poop emoji

Amanda Hollinger took a serious and perhaps volatile situation and turned it into something great, only because she knew how to take care of a situation peacefully.
She used compassion and common sense.Thank you Amanda.

Re: “The Agenda: That's a big ship; Mt. P. planning group gets political spin; Justices visit S.C.

Point of order: the Panama Canal was not widened; an entirely new set of locks was built which allows post-panamax-size vessels to pass. The rest is as it was save for possibly some dredging.

Re: “Dual bond proposals look to increase Charleston’s affordable housing stock

ya like this was ever a choice. How are we gonna double in population yet ebay street floods after a light shower? It would be cheaper to fix the issue once now than to forever constantly have to pay city workers to direct traffic during storms. Good job yall! This problem needed to finally be resolved.

Re: “The Agenda: County offers $33M to settle lawsuit with Trump group; Graham plan puts states in charge of health care

I don't think Lindsay Graham is going to do anything about the ACA except make excuses.

Re: “The Agenda: County offers $33M to settle lawsuit with Trump group; Graham plan puts states in charge of health care

Its interesting how the story of the old Naval Hospital gets spun. It was sold to North Charleston for 2 million, and then it was sold by the city to a private concern for 5 million, netting the city a 3 million dollar profit. No one's complaining about the city being greedy. The county sold the Charleston Center for 17 million to the hospital. No one's griping about greed. The county let a 25 year contract for 29.5 million which would lease the renovated Naval hospital for office space-this would be paid by the county. The county reneged on that contract and now must pay the developer 33 million in a settlement, and because Don Jr. is in the mix its called greedy, and bilking the taxpayer. But the taxpayers would have been paying the lease one way or another except now they don't get anything for their money thanks to the county's mishandling of all of this.

Re: “The Agenda: Thousands still without power; Alito to speak at USC Law; Should we have evacuated?

Localhutch, I don't know if my apartment office would permit me to have a generator in my apartment. And I have read somewhere that generators should not be run indoors, it can be dangerous. So when a hurricane is coming, I normally evacuate to some hotel far from Charleston. Thankfully I can afford it, so I don't have to go to a shelter, like the poor people. I hope hurricane Jose won't decide to come here.

Re: “If you wade through floodwaters, you're risking exposure to human waste, bacteria, and other nasty stuff

I thought I had my own private island in the Atlantic Ocean here on James Island for a while. But from the smell of things now, apparently I was up dung river.

Re: “If you wade through floodwaters, you're risking exposure to human waste, bacteria, and other nasty stuff

Well, the residual water, and poop water, still is in the lawns and shallow pools in the area. Didn't anyone see the "reverse flow" of the manhole covers in the Market area? There is DEFINITELY sewage in that water spewing out of the ground. Our ancient sewer system has more leaks than a rice cooker basket. Open wounds might just pick up that flesh-eating bacteria that has no cure, and you'll lose those limbs that were soaking in potty water.....and then your life. Is it worth it? Oh, and did you wipe your face with that hand that was in the water? GROSS!

Re: “The Agenda: Thousands still without power; Alito to speak at USC Law; Should we have evacuated?

Except for those fools who still don't have a generator and a supply of gas to run them. Why anyone would live in "hurricane alley" as most of us do, and not have a basic generator, at least one small window A/C unit and supplies to feed yourself for at least 7 days, is just living a dream. And if you live in a flood zone, be ready to LEAVE, and not have to be rescued out your living room window by a boat. At least go to a shelter so you don't use up good resources for the truly emergent folks. And go to the shelter with your own food and water, a blow up mattress, sheets and pillow cases...etc.

I think the Governor handled the situation well, its always a judgment call, and not an enviable one at that. At least everyone has all their emergency supplies in place for Jose.
