I live in Lexington. I consider it primarily a suburb of Columbia. If not for Columbia, Lexington would still be a rather rural area with its only main attraction being Lake Murray.

Every town/city in SC has pockets of trailer parks and trashy places to live. Some of them rather close to expensive/up market homes. That is a normal part of the changing from rural to suburban. I do not see I20 as being any type of dividing line.

Please keep your assumptions to yourself if they're not based on anything but a look from the outside in. I'd say below Old Barnwell would be a better line to draw, but even then many homes in the Red Bank area are being built from the 200k-300k range which is not exactly the trailer-hood. Just my redneck opinion from south of I-20 y'all....
It was intended to be taken as light humor, of course there are nice neighborhoods and well educated people down there just like there are some not so nice neighborhoods and uneducated people on the northern side of I-20 as well.

Its also going through a transition phase so I expect that stereotype will change in the coming years just like it did above I-20 but overall right now there there is a bit of a difference, and especially south of Old Barnwell.

I didn't really understand Haley's statement. I thought it was vague.

It was; that's why I only said she suggested she would veto. She didn't come right out and say she would. That's what you call straddling the fence.

As a mother she should understand that nine year old girls should be able to walk into a public restroom without a predator acting like he's a member of the lgbt following her in.

There are already laws that outlaw abuse of children. This is just a mean-spirited attempt to embarrass and harass transgender folks.

Waccamatt you have hit the nail right on the head. This is stupid legislation that will stifle business interests in a state where we need all the well-paying jobs we can get. My thought is that Governor Haley has been paying attention to the whole PayPal controversy in Charlotte this week and will not let the same thing unfold here in South Carolina. For whatever you want to think of her political persuasions, she is an excellent business recruiter. A law like this on the books would be kryptonite to her efforts to draw more Fortune 500 companies into South Carolina. Let's not let a few homophobes dictate policy in our state.
