Fightin' words: Columbia v. Charleston
Columbia's No. 5 ranking in a Great Place to Live poll by Kiplinger's has got a certain Charlestonian columnist a bit haughty
- The Post and Courier's Brian Hicks wrote a column published Wednesday begrudging Columbia's ranking: "Next time you see friends from Columbia standing in line at Hyman's, be sure to congratulate them on this momentous occasion."UPDATE: He wrote a follow-up column published Friday.
- Maybe this was in response to Neil White's story in The State.
- Swift reactions, and it wasn't even 9 a.m.
