Re: “What to do when the population grows and housing options shrink

What would Charleston be like if the old South's economy hadn't been built on a system that couldn't last? What would it be like if it had developed rapidly and consistently over its long history as the founding fathers surely envisioned? It would be a mega-city. Where would the people live then? Ridgeville would be like outer-Queens, New York. There would be a commuter train. Affordable housing units on the peninsula would be few and far between for the average Joe, as they are in Manhattan. Cities tend to be that way, but successful metros develop in a way that those living outside the center have amenities within walking distance. Our leaders need to quit talking and start requiring communities to be built the right way, with complete connectivity via frequent bus service, wide bike lanes, and commuter rail ASAP.

Re: “Charleston could learn a lot from downtown Greenville

The "Capital City" closes blocks of Main Street every Saturday morning for Soda City Farmers Market. And it blocks it off for the Jam Room Music Festival, the Latin-American Festival, Gay PRIDE, and the New Year's Eve Party.

Re: “The latest plan to outlaw gay-marriage is asinine

I'm beginning to think that legislators and others who won't live and let live and move on would hook up with the same sex themselves if the Bible didn't say not to.
