At first glance, it's not be obvious why the back-and-forth over proposed rail for the new port in North Charleston has been so hot.

Read more stories on this subject in our North Charleston rail topic page.Nor has it ben obvious why the State Ports Authority is so nervous over the whole thing (hint: last time this happened things went very poorly for the port).

But that's why I was glad to see this piece in today's Post and Courier that does a good job breaking it all down.

Go take a read.
