Re: “Lessons from the history of America's secret police

Glad to know that you and only you know what Comey was referring to, as no other publication has put forth this theory. As for admitting to a mistake, I don't recall Obama ever admitting to one either, but credit taking he was excellent at.

Re: “Confessions of a Southern Charm Newbie: Boxcutter on a Silver Platter

I love your columns! I do watch the show, but I look forward to your recaps just as much, if not more, than the actual episodes. I think your column is perfection--everything from your homages to film/music/literature to your effort to pinpoint a theme for each episode, even though it's clear that the Bravo producers themselves do not put that much thought into the show. Even your photo captions are hilarious. Don't let the opinion of one person muffle your zaniness. I literally laugh out loud when I read your writing, and I think a lot of other people do too.

Your column is FANTASTIC. It's better than watching the show.

Re: “The Charleston RiverDogs expertly trolled Tim Tebow all weekend

We were at the Sunday game and almost everyone in the stands took pictures and cheered everytime he was at bat. Sounds like whoever wrote the article is trying to stir up trouble. They even did a video tribute to him on Sunday and thanked him for coming out. From what I saw even riverdogs fans enjoyed having him here. We surely wouldn't have gone this weekend if he hadn't been in town. If he was harrassed I'd like to be the first to apologize. That's not the way we do things in Charleston.

Re: “Strawless Summer challenges Charleston bars and restaurants to give up plastic straws

What blows my mind is how few bars/restaurants actually throw all those bottles and cans in a recycling can instead of the trash when it seems like just about the easiest damn thing to do.

Re: “The Charleston RiverDogs expertly trolled Tim Tebow all weekend

"Expertly"? Does charlestoncitypaper.com have middle school boys running their editorial process, because that's the only group I could imagine who would label such low-class antics as "expert." I guess we can look forward to seeing words like "doody" and "fart" acclaimed as profound word choices from you guys.

We're using a 1934 law to govern technology invented in the last ~20 years. Smart.

Re: “The Charleston RiverDogs expertly trolled Tim Tebow all weekend

Really? Light hearted fun is what you're going to bitch about. Making fun and joking around is different. Paul please take the stick out of your ass and see they were having fun. I figured adults didn't get a booboo lip because of little jokes.

Re: “Strawless Summer challenges Charleston bars and restaurants to give up plastic straws

Here is my issue. Too often servers, bartenders and others are holding the glass / cup etc by the top / rim. I DON'T want to drink from a place where someone just had their hand. Just this weekend I watched our server grab two glass and hold them at the top as they filled them with our drinks. When the server got to the table I refused both glasses and asked for clean. I watched this happen again and again I refused and when asked what was wrong I explained. The server had an attitude for the next 15 minutes and being concerned about what may have been happening to our food we got up and left...

Re: “The Charleston RiverDogs expertly trolled Tim Tebow all weekend

The fans "troll" Tim Tebow just by showing up for games they would not otherwise attend so "troll" away. I'm sure TT doesn't mind the attention.

I only pulled up this because I heard of your unsportsman.like conduct at these games. Not sure who wrote this newspaper story, but.I'm gonna go ahead and advise you to polish up that resume.

Re: “Stella's is a gift from the Greek gods

Spot on review, but the critic overlooked one of the more fantastic features of Stellas, unlike most upscale foodie places here in town, it won't break your budget.

Re: “Dylann Roof didn't win, but did we?

Hey Tom, thanks for the reply.

You mention that Germany took down the Nazi flag immediately. Well, we gave them no choice. The occupying forces made it law, and that law remains to this day. While we did not go as far as banning it, we can continue to fly the flag for WHATEVER reason they choose to display it. White Supremacy may be one reason some do so. It certainly is not why I do so.

I support the flags removal from over the statehouse. The only flag that should fly there is the state flag and above it, the American flag. Over a monument was an acceptable place to display it, so I did not support its removal from that location. The entire flag issue was a terrible distraction from the AME shooting. Something that I feel could have waited so that the two issues were not connected in the minds of South Carolinians.

I think you conclusion that the FBI failed to order the ATF to confiscate the shooters illegally purchased firearm is a bit of a stretch. More likely, the FBI was lazy and simply did not care enough to pursue it until AFTER it was used in a shooting. Suddenly it mattered a great deal.

Re: “The Charleston RiverDogs expertly trolled Tim Tebow all weekend

Tim Tebow playing in Charleston that weekend...brought WAY MORE FANS (and money) to the home team...than they would have drawn/earned if Tebow didnt play for Columbia. Yet, they want to troll him?

All the teams in that Class A League should be KISSING Tebow's behind...because without him playing for Columbia....those teams ARE NOT making money hand over fist on days Tebow plays!

People mock him..but in A World of 'producing results' (i.e. MAKING MONEY)....Tebow is a money making draw! Fans want to pay to see him play (regardless of the reason/reasons).

I find it hypocritical that the very people making fun of Tebow...have NO PROBLEM with going to the bank making cash deposits after a game Tebow played in! Look at the numbers of fans who come to games Tebow plays in..vs....non-Tebow games! Bottom line...people are DUMB (always have been, always will be)!

Re: “Confessions of a Southern Charm Newbie: Ain’t that Tuff Enuff

Oh one more thing! For Landen's dad. I am free to work on your real estate venture. Hell. I will even pitch a tent and stay on the property 24/7 for a couple of thousand dollars ( yes. His exact words.Not too proud to say I know this.)
I can even send my resume digitally as well as on paper which, besides the whole bloodline thing, I think makes me a much better candidate
