Re: “Orange Crush: Justice is slow but inexorable

Nice RACIST article Orlando. Totally unbiased,, hahaaa.
I supposed you never thought that the Orange Crush attendees have EARNED the reception they get.
I have talked to tons of people that visited from out of town to Tybee and were never informed that these people planned to come and trash the beach and surrounding areas, and then leave it to volunteers to clean up after their mess, not to mention ruining a weekend at Tybee for tons of tourists that could find nothing about this drunk and drug-fest online.

But don't let THAT stop you from writing your little slanted Racist article.

Re: “Editor's Note: The truth about local media!

It is mostly dying because people are tired of OPINION and no real unbiased news. The media these days, both TV and newspapers are nothing more than a total bashing of our great President Trump,, PERIOD....

They're too dense that they don't care if they go bankrupt or not,, they will continue to ride the ship down because they refuse to allow ANY opinion but their own liberal agenda.

I keep getting calls for free or hugely discounted subscription to the SMN paper,, and I just laugh and tell them that you couldn't PAY ME to get the slanted OPINION rag.

Re: “The remarkable bipartisan consensus against offshore drilling

Might be possible to delay offshore drilling, but if Uncle Sam digs in his heels, it will happen. And oil platforms are just a drop in the bucket (no pun intended!) when
you think about the ongoing terrible damage the Fukushima meltdown does every day to all the oceans.

Re: “Editor's Note: The truth about local media!

Newspapers and all print media are slowly dying. Young people aren't interested. They all have computers and portable "devices" that yield all the information they want. And though the American people are the most dumbed-down in the world, even they are rapidly losing faith and interest in the liars, spinners, and cover-up artists in the electronic media.

Overall, a good column with which I largely agree, but I'm going to have to take umbrage at the above statement, which essentially amounts to the very same brand of self-defeating cynicism that has caused political discord in the community in the first place.

We cannot let ourselves become this cynical about what "Savannah is." We should instead focus on what Savannah *can* be.

Re: “Strive for sustainability, not ‘balance’

Maybe one time many long years ago it was a good idea to try to entice potential tourists to come to Savannah off of I-95, but that has long ended. Now Savannah is a top US destination and has a solid reputation as a beautiful place all over the world, much of it thanks to Mr. Berendt's book. Nothing wrong with a few signs
on I-95 still however, telling about Savannah.

The motorists know about Savannah before they ever begin their trips south and plan accordingly.

Rather than trying to gouge the tourists with the current absurd $2.00 per hour, 12 hours per day ripoff scheme, the city should open free zones at selected spots downtown where people can park for an hour or two so as to take care of business, shop, or have lunch. A chalk mark on a tire will tell a parking maven how long someone has been there and a ticket could be issued to those abusing the privilege. Currently many people leave here with a bitter taste in their mouths at the eagerness those red-shirted patrols show in ticketing their cars.

It is most unlikely that anyone will arrive planning to tour Camden County or the Golden Isles via a "trail" either. Good roads--and ultimately parking lots--are needed to bring them and keep them there for any length of time.

Re: “Editor's Note: Requiem for a City Manager

Savannah is governed by political appointees. If they stay in office here for very long, they amass great power. Old "River of Lost Souls" Mendonsa was evidence of that. The "weak mayor" system here delivers just that--weakness.

Re: “Editor's Note: Pooler, West Chatham, and the new paradigm

No soul glow in the city anymore. It's what you all wanted a tourist toile't (In my French voice). So the locals and newcomers smartly moved out west to avoid the hype and created communities. I don't think this is nothing new just get with the program. I'm a native from the East side of Savannah and I see whites moving back off ole Skidaway. I don't see any fear in their eyes when i drive by to visit my relatives from Virginia. I get a big wave like, Welcome. Strange!

Re: “City Manager Rob Hernandez set to resign

Agreed GOFCHATHAM. Luckily Rob forced out most of the incompetence over the last 3 years in city staff. Too bad he couldn't force council to retire the same way.

Re: “Victory North in Starland set to fill performance niche

Coming from Detroit I hope they are able to be at least on par with St. Andrews Hall.
Or ar least the Majic Stick or the Fillmore all music halls on the same pace of what is projected here in Savannah.
Heres hoping.

Re: “Editor's Note: Pulaski makes news, 240 years later

Would be a bit of a task for a woman to grow a mustache like that. Finding bones somewhere identified as female, then claiming them as Pulaski's is a pretty good stretch.

Don't let his blubbering fool you. He and others like him are racists and haters and they will prove it if by a horrible twist of fate they get elected.

Re: “Editor's Note: Learning from Charleston’s successes – and mistakes

Charleston has a competent police force and it does not have the rampant street crime that Savannah has, and when criminals are caught, they are not coddled in Charleston as they are in Savannah.

Re: “Hernandez, citing "personal" attacks, admits he is finalist for City Manager job in Texas

Good riddance. This dirtbag has applied all over the US trying to get out of here, yet the yes-men at city hall sing his praises whenever possible. Hope he takes his 12-hour, $2.00 parking program with him and someday gets an adult haircut.
