Re: “Will Charleston complete its vision of a bike-friendly peninsula?

In a few years, as your city becomes more enlightened, we'll need extra bike racks outside of the new "coffee shops" (as the city of Amsterdam likes to call them), used for medical purposes only, of course.

Plus, I guess we'll need to establish bike DUI laws, and, if you have your bike license suspended, you can just drive your car. So, it'll work itself out.

Gevrey - Bike valet will be considered one of those "green" jobs you've heard so much about.

Re: “Will Charleston complete its vision of a bike-friendly peninsula?

Greg - Life must be pretty good for you. By your world view, our government encouraging bike-riding should somehow be high on all of our agendas. And, illustrating your dedication to the cause, you've written a painfully long article to support it.

This is our future in America. Some busy-body wants to make life inconvenient for the majority to further their environmentalist dogma or to simply impose their personal preference. So, a commuter from Daniel Island has to pass by dozens of empty bike racks on their way to find an increasingly-rare parking space. And, as always, there is no consideration for the impacts to business or any other factor with which us ADULTS have to concern ourselves. Typical.

Re: “Columbia has finally elected an African-American mayor. When will Charleston?

I find it fascinating that the writer champions "substance to triumph over rhetoric," yet the entire article is about a person with a particular skin tone becoming mayor. Is that "substance," or is that shallow and racist? Unfortunately, the white-guilt vote may have been expended on Obama, the undoubted king of "rhetoric" over "substance."

Also, isn't it ironic that a phrase like "One Columbia" is credited for Benjamin winning the election, but this article is about how important it is for Charleston to have a black mayor? Isn't that a big disingenuous? If you truly believed in the concept of "One Charleston," it really wouldn't matter what their race was, would it? But, it does matter to this writer, and so spare us the empty "rhetoric" about "coming together" and "a city that works for everyone." Have the guts to simply say you want a black guy for mayor.
