Re: “"You suck Ken Burger"

"Once again, I'm done with you." Whatever. You're an immature half-wit who can't even form a correctly punctuated sentence, but I bet you're good at slinging drinks. I should know better than to try and engage in thoughtful debate with a wall.

Re: “"You suck Ken Burger"

I didn't write that as a jab at you, jaxx. That was a quote I included from a friend (who actually sides with you) in reference to my friend's reaction to your comments about my original post. Not only do your comments come across as childish and petty to someone who disagrees with you (me, in case you can't keep up), they came across as "ignorant and hackish" to someone who believes just as you do. As you demonstrated with your astute posts in reaction to the article, you clearly have the reading comprehension level of an eighth grader. You're making it more and more apparent why the food and beverage industry chose you, even though you've probably deluded yourself into thinking you were the one doing the choosing. Based on everything you've said thus far, it's painfully obvious at how lacking you are in ability to do anything other than what you've "chosen."

Re: “"You suck Ken Burger"

I think it would be interesting to find out how many dissenters offering idiotic commentary in defense of food and bev are actually servers where they work. I'd be willing to bet that managers or executive chefs or anyone else in a higher up position in the industry has a very different perspective of what it's like to work in a restaurant. These folks are removed, or have forgotten, the every day demeaning reality of waiting tables, and if the managers, et al. actually ASKED their servers, probably very few would feel any differently than what's described in Burger's article. Those higher up, by the way, weren't even mentioned in the article, and it wasn't Burger's duty to include them. To say a writer has to include every point of view in a piece is ridiculous; they're under no such contract to shine a light on every person relevant to the topic written about. That's essentially the same as saying an article written about the debate over the Mark Clark Expressway has to include every quote from every idiot who attended the public hearing because every person must be included when the hearing is given coverage.

Re: “Ohioans have invaded the Lowcountry... and some folks wish they would leave

This article was an absolute farce, and the fact it's a cover story is utterly absurd. City Paper, are you really trying to convince me this asinine example of a waste of ink was the most interesting, relevant, or newsworthy story you could run this week? The opinions of two annoyingly stereotypical representatives of either group do nothing except further annoying stereotypes associated with both Ohioans and Charlestonians. Printing those opinions lends them legitimacy; given their content, it's obvious that to assume the general public is capable of objectivity, is assuming far too much. What is evidenced by this story, and by the only comment of any worth it contains, is the fact that Charleston's no intellectual playground. And no, I'm not from Ohio.
