Tourism, let's not kid ourselves, it's an industry. And like any industry, what can bring jobs can also hurt the attractiveness and livability of your area.

Just yesterday we saw how tourism can bolster jobs, so I find Will Moredock's piece on the tourism industry doubly interesting today.

Through it he shows how the industry that's been oh so good to Charleston has run amok in Myrtle Beach.

Go take a read.

With every highway expansion in the Lowcountry, I always see a little bit of why people move here disappear.
