Re: “See ya ‘round, Savannah

Nice "farewell" article. I'm sure we will see you around Savannah if you come to events on the calendar that tickle your fancy. Finding your niche and changing it from time to time constitutes a lifetime well spent.

Thank you Jessica for documenting our local civil ( and sometimes not so) society so eloquently over the past few years, and good luck!

Re: “The high points of Savannah’s new weed ordinance proposal

It's a good idea.
Except for me and countless other people that have had the proverbial book thrown at them!!!
4.5 grams of pot got me 10 1/2 months in Chatham county jail and 5 year's of probation and almost 4 grand in fees and fines.
So fogive me if I say too little too late.

Re: “How to not be a creep at work

Many HR departments are on the side of management, not employees. Very dicey to report anything to them without backlash. Best to do it as a group to back each one up with their allegations.

Re: “What Would Mother Mathilda Do?

It would be a great idea to include Mother Matilda's park etc. on tours of Savannah. As a matter fact, Susie King Taylor and her husband opened a school for black children after the Civil War at the corner of what is now Oglethorpe and E. Broad. The cost was $1 per month. In the same area are homes that once were used as "secret schools" after an 1818 law was passed that neither slaves NOR free people of color could be taught.

Re: “Eating the enemy

I used to have lion fish in my office aquarium and fed then live goldfish. Very exciting - except for the goldfish. I had no knowledge of th
e lion fish's dark side and now that I do I will look for it on the menu wherever I go. Lion fish sushi doesn't sound like a bad idea.

Re: “Rename this bridge: Now is the time of reckoning

I would suggest that those in the press, and citizens across Savannah and Chatham County just start CALLING it the "Savannah Bridge." Even if the name is officially changed, we must stop CALLING it the Talmadge Bridge .... and that habit will be hard to break, and I predict there will be steps outlined to do this at some point.

In the meantime, we need to get on with this change of habit. We actually have the "power" to change the name ourselves. And if discussion comes up in the confusion, then we have the opportunity to illuminate Talmadge's actual racist beliefs. History and education .... let's not ignore an opportunity that might not come again for some of us.

Re: “Rename this bridge: Now is the time of reckoning

Yamacraw Bridge. A people whose leaders were instrumental in the founding of the state, a neighborhood where the bridge touches down in Savannah, and the name of the bluff where Oglethorpe landed. Name it "Yamacraw", and open the newly renamed bridge with a performance of "Yamekraw" by James P. Johnson, a piece for jazz piano and orchestra that is named for the old Yamacraw neighborhood. "Savannah Bridge" is boring and safe. "Yamacraw Bridge" is everything.

Re: “Rename this bridge: Now is the time of reckoning

I am amazed that anyone would take the position that the bridge is aptly named. There isn't even the romanticism of the false "Lost Cause" narrative associated with the name. Who can argue in favor of the current name??? It is high time the name is changed and any citizen of moral character would support that change.

"He was a sweaty, suspender-snapping bully with a bullhorn." A fantastic line!
