Re: “Travesty at the Yacht Club

Love your article. I'm member of old-time "aristocracy" which has founded and belonged to a yacht club since 1853, and I have lived in Charleston, but I believe in the principle "from those who have much to those who have little."

Re: “Why Mt. Pleasant is called Mt. Pleasant (Hint: Get ready to blush)

All but one link (the dictionary link) is dead. How about some valid sources that Mount Pleasant was actually named for that? This is BS.

Re: “Why South Carolina needs more of the North's best doughy export, Dunkin' Donuts

I grew up on Dunkin'. After I was introduced to Krispy by a neighbor soon after I moved to Charleston, I have never looked back.
I had 2 dogs on daily meds. Even they would only take their pills surrounded by a piece of hlazed donut. Once I could fund them nowhere. Even the bakery on Savannah Hwy had sold the last dozen. I returned home with glazed crullers. The dogs spit them out- too cakey.
Krispy Kreme is THE best!!!

Re: “Why South Carolina needs more of the North's best doughy export, Dunkin' Donuts

@Priscilla, for the express shops they typically have a large kitchen that provides all their area stores with fresh, hot donuts every morning. they're not delivered frozen to any of the shops. this would destroy the yeast and they wouldn't rise properly.

Re: “The Agenda: Drone likely dropped wire cutters to aid prison escape; State won't send voter data, but SCGOP will

The Party of Smaller Government strikes again. Is anyone surprised the SCGOP would comply with this? Bootlickers from top to bottom. Imagine if Hillary were president and tried to pull a stunt like this.

Please take yourself and terrible Dunkin' Donuts back to where you came from. That place is awful and a perfect example of bland s**t food from yankeeland.

Maybe the voter info should be sold for 50k in instead of $2500

Re: “I am a racist and proud of it

He says he never called anyone these names, he doesn't say he's never used them. As for Paula Deen, let's see, Bill Maher, John Mayer and others say nicer, but they get a pass. Damn liberal racists

Re: “Lindsey Graham calls Trump tweet 'beneath the office,' Tim Scott tells president not to be distracted

At least he puts out great points, while you just act as a typical liberal, can't beat them, than denigrate them. And you call Trump a bully, Tupper?

Wow. DJ's not paddling with all oars as it appears he is a "Scotter" in "Bizarro World" - and divisive himself. Let the white and elite gods think and rule the world. FNC strikes again.

Re: “Best Acupuncturist

Chad is awesome. I can come there worried or upset about something. In an hour with combined acupuncture and meditation, I leave completely mellowed out. Thanks God there is a place I can go for homeopathic care and afford on a limited budget, sliding scale basis. These folks provide a rare community service. I am so pleased to find them in Charleston...and the results are irrefutable. I love this place!

If I were jaded and pessimistic I might say that offering a restauranteur free good PR for cutting his overhead is reason enough to join the campaign, but I'm not

Re: “Philando, Folly, and Flags

As a person descended from both Mexican and Native American ancestry, could the author explain to me why I couldn't use his same twisted argument to advocate for the elimination of the current U.S. flag?

Re: “Charleston firefighters relocated once again due to bedbugs in West Ashley station

What no one has mentioned is that firefighters encountering bedbugs at the station have probably inadvertently carried them home, thus creating a circle of re-infestation.

Re: “Why South Carolina needs more of the North's best doughy export, Dunkin' Donuts

Priscilla, the next time you visit a Dunkin Donuts(probably your first) take a peek through the kitchen door and notice the baking materials.
As for Krispy Kreme, I suppose they're not bad if what you like is a handful of Crisco dipped in processed white sugar.

Re: “UPDATE: 70+ Charleston restaurants have signed on to the Strawless Summer Challenge

Just an observation and a question, if you combine the number of plastics straws used at all the fast food restaurants and gas station markets with fountain drinks in the area, wouldn't they overwhelm by the thousands those used at all these local places listed? Was there any attempt to approach those type of establishments to get them to participate or is this just another case of virtue signalling?
