Re: “Fire Fee: Don’t shoot the messenger

You do realize, or should at the least mention, that this development was approved by council in 2005? That's a really relevant part of the story that is missing. I think it's also worth consideration that the pending expansion of river street makes the case for "strangling the growth of downtown" development pretty useless. Both of these projects were stalled due to the recession, and now have momentum building toward completion. Giving people options on where to live makes sense, not everyone wants the same thing. While sprawl is a a great buzzword there needs to be some context driven reporting here, not just snark and hype.

Re: “Name shaming the Talmadge Bridge

The authors sardonic view is typical of a transplant with no authentic connection to the area they inhabit but willing to spew contempt for all southerners, and in the all too familiar form of race baiting. Changing the name of a bridge does not benefit anyone, nor does blaming the past for one's own shortcomings, it only justifies their contempt.

What's worse is that this article and many others written here, pass as journalism instead of what it really is... poorly crafted kitsch dribble. While it may stir debate at the coffee shops it does nothing but sarcastically disparage Georgias history and promote the derogatory stereotype that all those, not just Carolinians, who live south of the Mason-Dixon line are "rednecks....clutching their Confederate flags to their tobacco-stained Duck Dynasty T-shirts".

Mrs. Lebos you are offensive, have some respect for the Low Country locals who have had to suffer your condescension and to Carlos and Edy, you sound more like the fascists you fear than the righteous rebels you want to be.
