Best New Secession

Daniel Island Threatens to Move to Charleston County

Staff Pick

Daniel Island is a strange and sad place, full of strange and sad white-flighters who are just too good to be a part of something as decidedly "backwoods" as Berkeley County. They're too uppity to be associating with the riff-raff from Moncks Corner, Goose Creek, and Pimlico. And if they had it their way, they'd never have to leave Daniel Island. This year, a group of concerned Daniel Islanders threatened to secede from Berkeley County and hook up with Charleston County, all because they didn't like the fact that a new school serving Daniel Island might be built somewhere other than Daniel Island. The horror. So far, the idea has gained little traction, at least as far as we can tell. Here's hoping it stays that way. Charleston County doesn't need them.
