Re: “The 20 politicians who hate us

Hate is a strong word Chris, but having been around many of these elected officials myself during the time in question i.e. the last 20 years, your memory serves you well. And you're damn right about Riley he went dessert with that dead bodies and anecdote during the I-526 debate. That was enjoyable.

Re: “Hank Williams Jr. is irritated with me

I also "interviewed" Bocephus, and had an identical experience.

Re: “Eminent domain is a dangerous weapon for Charleston leaders to wield

Enjoyed your thoughts and well-reasoned piece on an issue that is now and will forever be half-hidden by the shroud of subjectivity. A municipality's use of eminent domain as a means to alter the landscape or facility in the name of "the public good," begs subjectivity, as one person's public good is another's detriment. I felt distracted by the comparison of Mayor Teckleburg with President Trump, for the obvious reasons and one I feel isn't so obvious I suppose.

In the case of both the Mayor and the President, they were elected fairly by a set and understood democratic process (tongue in cheek in the direction of Moscow notwithstanding). hat I'm saying is that you're damn right when you say "placing something as powerful as eminent domain in the realm of ambiguity puts great faith in the character of elected officials," but that's the very nature of our democracy, and why each of us should take our civic duty to do our best to elect the right people with a measure of gravity.

I'll close with one more thing your thought-provoking piece stirred in my memory. Though it wasn't technically achieved through the use of eminent domain, I'd be remiss not to remind you that a property at which you and I both love and spend a great deal of our time at might never have been without a Mayor deciding he knew best for the community. Should he never have carrot-and-sticked his way into seeing part of the Dill Plantation the James Island County Park might never have been. That land was originally deeded to a series of civic organizations but ended up in the hands of Charleston County after a Mayor Riley-conceived three-way agreement consolidated the many parts of the land as one, for the County to run, for the public good.

That said, enjoyed your article!

Re: “S.C. senators push for transgender bathroom restrictions for Berkeley students

Ray, I'm just thankful that by ignoring any semblance of grammatical structure, by discarding punctuation outright you have insulated my throbbing brain from understanding your point.
