It’s a constant fight to save the beautiful city that we already have from our own people and government.

I had always thought that it was going to be people “from off” who destroyed lovely Charleston, but I was wrong.

Apparently it will be local companies and the Charleston planning officials who will wreck downtown.

Why in the world do we bother to have zoning laws? It doesn’t seem to be very hard to get them changed. Meanwhile, what was done to those beautiful grand oaks in the Crescent is beyond belief.
