Re: “We probably shouldn't be shocked that 18 downtown restaurants have closed so far this year

As much at risk financially in opening and running a restaurant are the purveyors around town who supply them. They know the health of a particular eatery's business model sometimes even before the restaurant knows it themselves just by looking at their accounts receivable columns.

Re: “The strange case of Leon Stavrinakis' Range Rover

It is becoming more obvious as the campaign rolls along that Stavrinakos has an incongruity problem with the image he wishes voters to believe and what he actually is. He is obviously a first class hypocrite for decrying in ads and in a press conference his opponent's sniping at his votoing record and then launching into the same behavior against his opponent in the runoff. This is the kind of political "experience" Stavrinakos' brings to the table and we sure as Hell don't need it in City Hall.

Re: “Charleston intersections are overrun with panhandlers

The police have said many of the sign bearers claiming to be veterans, homeless or pregnant are scammers. The best way to get them off the intersections is not to give them money.

Re: “An open letter to Academic Magnet students

As far as Mr Haire's open letter: I am reminded of the ancient caution not to confuse the brayings of an ass with the utterances of a philosopher. His excreances are truly pitiful and his cynical vitriol knows no boundaries.

Re: “A map of Charleston's gay history

Back in the early seventies when I had a catering company called "The Movable Feast," we did quite a lot of adult men gay receptions held at private homes in what is now called "The French Quarter," and around Ansonboro. All the events were black tie and other than the fact that they were all men, with several older committed couples, the events were just like any other downtown reception. Most of them came from prominent families and I recognized them at other receptions all over town. They appeared to be unconditionally well received. I think, contrary to the perceptions stemming from popular urban legends of Charleston's social insularity, that Charlestonians then were far less brittle and more forbearing than commonly depicted.
