Re: “Editor's Note: Film industry at stake with Abrams vs. Kemp?

So--we should bow and grovel before outsiders who come here and inflict their
La-La Land, twisted values on us in exchange for money? They are good at mouthing lines someone smarter than they are has written for them, but it doesn't go much further than that.

William Jennings Bryan and Harold Stassen "liked" campaigning too, but it got them nowhere.

Re: “Hungry for History?

I don't think Sherman "refused" to burn Savannah. He was never asked to burn the city. For the rest of his life, he refused to say exactly why he did not burn Savannah, however it is known that he wanted a few things: he wanted to get his wounded men out and bring in supplies, war goods, fresh horses, and recruits from the big Yankee base on Hilton Head and other sources further north; he stole more than 25,000 bales of cotton here and he wanted to get them up north and put them up for sale as fast as he could; he wanted local people familiar with the port and pilots who knew the waterways here to re-open the port and work it for him. Had he burned the city, many if not all of these people would have fled and he would have been left with a closed port.

Yes, his men could have ultimately put things together, but local people told him they knew the war was over and they also wanted to get trade and traffic in and out of the port again, so Sherman's thinking was compatible with that of the local people of the day.

Re: “Westside Arena: A critical look at access

White noise. Only an utter fool would dare to walk in that area at night or park a car there. This is an even bigger boondoggle than looking for some sucker
to build something in the swamps off President St.

Re: “State targets homeless camps in West Savannah for removal

Why not re-open the old Brown Farm, a good idea. A work camp. That would give these folks something to do and three squares per day.

Re: “Westside Arena: a 50-year mistake?

Only an utter fool would go into that high crime district especially at night, and only a super-utter fool would leave a car parked there unattended for any length of time. Pound our property tax money down a rat-hole.
