Re: “Haley's trip highlights nation's economic failures

"Did I mention that she arrived three days early? I probably should not mention that, not that it is really the important thing to take away from all of this..."

But yet, you thought it was important enough to mention twice, snidely. Really?

Have you traveled to an Asian-Pacific country before? Even the most experienced travelers to China, Japan, Korea, etc. will tell you it takes at least 24-48 hours to get your bearings and shake off the jet lag (my family has made more than 2 dozen trips to China in the past 5 years, just in case you are questioning my experience).

Regardless of anyone's opinion of the trip, I want our officials on their best game when representing our state. It's better to spend a few dollars than fight jet lag because they flew in the night before.

Re: “Bicyclist killed by hit-and-run in West Ashley

While Fish Pimp has a few holes in his rhetoric, he is absolutely right about passing standing cars at a stoplight. It is illegal, and is a fantasic way to get injured by an opening car door. Patador- Stop doing it! But yes, you are much more visible and safe on the roadway.

Let's settle these petty arguments with a simple rule. Bicycles are VEHICLES. Human powered, but vehicles. If you can not, or would not do something in a car, you must not do it on a bike. That goes for riding with traffic, obeying traffic signals and laws, and staying OFF of sidewalks unless there is a dedicated multipurpose pathway (or in the case of a 35 MPH speed limit).

And remember, basic physics; cars will always win in a collision with a bike. Be sensible. If we don't educate fellow cyclists and learn to abide by the safety laws in place- we will see more accidents and further restrictions on riding a bicycle.

Safe riding.
