Re: “39 Rue De Jean

I don't get it. Why the complaints? This is not a fine dining place. It is a wonderful classic French dinner bistro; The kind I like to drop into in Paris. We are regulars, usually eating a salad frisee with goat cheese and Moules Frites. They also are known for their Suchi (a bit of a surprise). It can get noisy around end of work, hookup time and the service can be terrible on any of the holidays due to over demand and decreased staff, but it hasn't stopped me from going. If you want elegant and pretty food, go elsewhere and pay considerably more. Here time it well and eat well.

Re: “MSNBC's Joy Ann Reid talked U.S. presidency, CofC presidency at Thursday night panel

Two Schools in SC have racial distributions that reflect the State. I taught at Winthrop, one of those schools and it is, at least, as well regarded as the CofC. That ratio was achieved, not through quotas, but by making the school a hospitable environment for all students. As to the qualifications of students, my grade distributions certainly did not correlate with race. Your implication that African-American students are less qualified than White students is a familiar racist trope. Which is shocking coming from a fellow Jewish New Yorker.

On the other hand, to the point above, the CofC has a large Jewish student cohort, for the same reason. Both the City and the College reflect a welcoming attitude.

Re: “Citadel president denounces "abhorrent racist statements" posted on social media

I was trying to think of what might be a proper punishment for this. Walking it off or suspension would simply lead him to justify his hatred. The fact that the word came so easy to his lips and so publicly reveals deep seated racial attitudes. I would rather see punishment for change than punishment for revenge. Is suggest looking at approaches used to change members of alt-right groups.
