Strip clubs less disruptive
than helicopter tours
The Horry County Council is going to save us all from moral decay by passing a couple of resolutions. These resolutions restrict where gentlemen’s clubs and adult video shops can be located, and will require some to relocate.
Isn't it interesting that the council said its hands were tied when it came to relocating the helicopter site near Broadway At The Beach. The council couldn’t care less that the nearby homeowers have to endure helicopters flying overhead all day and through most of the night.
But they do want to keep these adult businesses from being seen and offending the sensitivities of their citizens. Maybe the homeowers who opposed the helicopter tour sites from a zoning standpoint should have paraded a couple of ministers before the council to proclaim how morally damaging the noise was to the homeowners. The outcome might have been different.
Comparing family dogs
to liberals ‘pathetic’
Re: Sept. 2 letter from John A. Donnelly, “It’s a (liberal?) dog’s life” by John A. Donnelly
How sick and absolutely pathetic, was the one overall impression that I came away with upon reading this person’s comparison of his dogs lives to liberal Democrats. As troubling as many of the arguments are from extremist right wing politicians, at least there is hope that they can be voted out of office and replaced by more acceptable others. However, when confronted with attitudes like his from members of the voting public, I for one am left with a somewhat hopeless feeling regarding this country’s political future. I have no doubt that if the writer lived in South Carolina he would have voted for that wonderful human being, Mark Sanford.
I am surprised that Mr. Donnelly did not suggest that one of his dog’s is white and the other black but he treats them both as equals because he does not have a racist bone in his body. I truly feel that if dogs could read, most would be insulted by his remarks and conclusions.
Sen. Scott invited,
chose not to attend
Re: Sept. 3 letter from George Marshall, “Invite or not, Scott setting good example”
The writer needs to find a news source that bases their reporting on facts rather than validation of one’s bias, hatred and contempt of the opposition. I agree, most certainly Dr. King would not approve of the contemptuous and obstructionist actions taking place today.
As for Sen. Tim Scott, although I disagree with his politics, I do applaud him for staying in touch with his constituents. Sen. Scott was invited, he was not snubbed. He simply, but unbelievably, chose not to attend.
I sent Sen. Scott an email, as I often do, asking him why, as the only black senator, he did not attend such a momentous occasion. So far, I haven’t had a response. But I understand he was in South Carolina instead of attending the 50th Anniversary of the landmark “I Have a Dream” speech. Truly baffling.
