Re: “A tale of two site plans

Great article Jason! Sottiel really gets Savannah and the 90* rotation is a great idea for the police station that was supposed to be completed in April of this year! Keep the pressure on and we'll get this town to work better!

Re: “Shout at the Devil

I am giving a testimony of how i become rich and famous today i was deeply strangled up by poverty and i had no body to help me, and also i search for help from different corners but to no avail i see people around me getting rich but to me i was so ashamed of my self so i met a man on my way he was very rich and he was a doctor so he told me something, that if i would like to join the illuminati brotherhood, and i think over it though out the day so the next day i looked up and i keep repeating what he said to me, and i make up my mind to join the illuminati, today i am so proud of myself, because i am a great man today, well know in the world, rich, famous so if you are also interested to join the illuminati, you have to email: churchofdevilinitiationcenter@gmail.com call or whatsapp +2347056024545 join the illuminati and enjoy good life with you and your generation.

Re: “Ogeechee Meat Market: Old-school butchers bring new-breed operation to Savannah

They dont sell stock, which is really the litmus test for a butcher. And it's not a "whole animal" butcher. They are okay but really not so amazing. Price is good here, but for those of that want true, top quality, it's not relevant.

After watching the same FL drivers heading bCk south, being rude to the power company trucks, supply trucks, etc, they got their karma. Bunch of a-holes.

Re: “Editor's Note: Hurricane Irma Report Card

Jim, what are your thoughts on Chatham County announcing that some residents will be forced to pay a fee of $131 to assist with cleanup costs?

http://wsav.com/2017/07/14/chatham-county-…

Seems to me like this is an arbitrary tax on those who were already most affected by the storm. One that feels like it should be illegal, if it isn't already.

Any opinions?

Re: “16-year-old shot, killed

Are "random shootings" included in the official number of Savannah murders or are they special exemptions like the July 4th City Market Unpleasantness? Just wondering...

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: “Reader: Confederate monuments will come down 'over my dead body'

Wow interesting reading. Is Neil for Real. That slogan would look good on a placard or on a sign in front of a church. I think an addition to the Classifieds section Connectsavannah.com might be just the answer. "Monuments for sale cheap"

Re: “Best Lawyer

With different laws governing almost everything that we do in our daily lives, it has become almost inevitable that each of us would need to hire the services of a lawyer or an attorney. From as simple scenario to a big and controversial one, hiring a lawyer like http://www.pagesjaunes.fr/pros/05241146 to assist you is a must if it involves the law.

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!

Re: “A tale of two site plans

This is progress? And at what cost? Some residents are at "risk" of being "priced-out". Mixed income housing? Forget about it! As it looks via the drawings, City's Central Precinct building could pass as a fort. Once more with feeling, the city is getting gutted like a fish.

Neil,

OK Butter Cup even if you are not a racist why would you want a monument for second place? Fold the dumb flag up and put it in museum do the same with racist monuments!

Re: “Reader: Confederate monuments will come down 'over my dead body'

I am certain that many can speak more eloquently than I as to why the statues should come down. Certainly, I'd be hard pressed to find someone to speak LESS eloquently than ol' Neil as to why they should stay. Wow am I glad I moved out of the landings!!!! This letter sure makes the landings club seem like a welcoming place...

If folks want to be willfully ignorant of the facts surrounding the Confederacy than that is on them. But for the rest of us who choose to live in the 21st century, it's time for the statues to come down. If GA law (and whoa, there are some doozies) prohibits removal then at the very least we can expand the story to show the cruel lie that The Lost Cause is built on. Now some like our friend Neil will be quite upset that dignity is given to other experiences. To them I say, human dignity is not a zero sum game.

But what do I know? I'm just a pansy snowflake.
