Re: “For starters, let's allow bars to stay open until 2:30 a.m.

It is unclear to me why the bars have to close at all. New York required alcohol to stop being sold at 2 a.m., but the bars didn't have to close. At 6 a.m., the bars could start selling alcohol again. Those who pre-purchased beer, wine and alcohol before 2 a.m. continued drinking until 6 a.m. when they could again purchase their drink of choice. We left at 6:30 a.m. anyway because school started at 7. Actually, the school part wasn't true, but the rest was.

Re: “Dept. of Revenue hacking victims begin receiving emails

When will the IT management be departing? They were the ones responsible for security and who did not know enough to take steps to prevent it from happening. We need people in those positions that are capable of seeking solutions to unidentified problems.

Re: “Chief Mullen's anti-booze brigade strikes again

Given how much our city relies on tourism, I am amazed that we would treat anyone this way. Why not write a ticket? What does the law say about the handling problem? Why in the world would we allow stores to sell single containers of beer? I have been in a number of places where open containers that are not even camoflaged by a paper bag are perfectly legal, as long as the drinker's behavior doesn't degenerate into something else that is illegal. He was a guest in our city, the police arrested him for a buck crime, left his wife stranded at the restaurant and turned the whole ordeal that once again holds us (Charlestonians) up to ridicule of the nation. That must have really turned up the nation's desire to visit Charleston. Was the officer right? Probably, but his actions can never be justified as the correct way to have handled the situation. And the mayor defending the officer? Better he kept his mouth shut than draw a line over this heinous crime.
