Young farmers? Really? I don't know any young farmers with 3/4 of a million to throw at a barn. It's ridiculous.
Y'all totally missed the mark by not including Short Winter Soups in this spread. They've been around for 5-6 years, quietly serving up soups alongside Chicken Bridge Bakery bread to folks around the triangle through their (very hard to get into) soup subscriptions. Check 'em out.
To answer the headline: yes.
Some of us Brits appreciate it. I even wrote a whole column on Brunswick Stew! Thanks for this piece, really enjoyed it.
Dude you got me the interest to read more, thanks to your content. Great thanks for that. There are some pretty good superman t shirt collection available at amazon
Hillary is like prune juice. You don't really care for it and it is hard to swallow. But if you don't you'll be full of s__t for years to come.
We need a new word. Hypocrite provides insufficient breadth and depth for the fact that the political party that purports higher moral standards and is known as the "Moral Majority" (what a joke!) has taken this long to feign abandoning ship. I say feign because even though this latest blatant evidence that Trump is a despicable demagogue incapable of empathy/integrity/humility will cause Republicans to publicly state that they don't support him I have no doubt that when afforded the privacy of the voting booth they will, like spoiled rotten brats, derive a perverse sense of smug pleasure by voting for Trump. Repugnant, repulsive, and nauseating are the first words that come to mind when I contemplate the reprobate himself and the miscreant peons who will shamelessly vote for him. They KNOW it is wrong but they will do it anyway. Which will make them all liars. They are Pro-Life, yet support the death penalty. They whine about the deficit but are too ignorant to recognize/remember that the soaring deficit can be directly linked to Bush's tax cuts/foreign wars. Bush started his Presidency with a surplus and ended it with a recession fueled record deficit. They go to church on Sunday and call themselves Christians and support an outspoken xenophobic, misogynistic, racist, fascist narcissist. They complain that nothing gets done in Washington yet they blindly oppose ANYTHING that isn't their idea; which ironically is EVERYTHING because they have no ideas. '
Like I said, we need a new word.

Interesting that the article includes a photo of the Moore Square Station. No mention about the $7 million upgrade from the city that is expected to be completed next month.
Raleigh is going to have to do something about public transportation to make getting around possible with the growth that we have and expecting in the future. That means having routes that comes out into the suburbs like Knightdale, Garner, Cary, Wake Forest. That means providing incentives for people to use public transportation for commuting, like a preloaded benefit on a SmarTrip card like DC. That means the routes not taking for-ev-er to get around (shorter routes? more buses?). That includes more express routes. That includes bus-only lanes.
As a transplant from DC, Raleigh really needs to step up its game. People will take public transportation if it's worth it to. People take public transportation in DC (and not just the "poor black" people, but nearly everyone) because it's convenient. I'd rather sit on a metro or a bus for 25 minutes than to sit in traffic for 30. I'd rather pay bus fare than parking meter. I'd rather not have to worry about parking. But public transportation is just too inconvenient for me. There's one bus that comes out to where I live, it's just an express bus too, so it doesn't really connect to other routes, so I'd have take the express to the transfer station and back-track to get to where I need to go.
Traffic is only going to get worse, and we need a revitalized public transportation system that works for its residents.
And to think, McCrory recently complained about the 1984-esque atmosphere in NC...
Dear copy and paster in Chief,
Is this supposed to be somewhat informative?
Bus service is a social service necessity. Not just for low income citizens, but senior citizens that legally should not be driving - but still do to avoid becoming prisoners in their homes, people will medical conditions from epilepsy to a variety of eye problems to those with broken legs, etc. And DWI offenders who simply should not be given an exception to drive to and from work.
Bus service is a necessity for the transit dependent. There is no "No buses, everybody drive" option.
Car drivers get a massive $100 billion a year subsidy - so let's not talk about the inequity of subsidizing transit. Fuel taxes, tolls and license tags pay for less than half the cost of building and maintaining roads and highways when they should pay 120% (the extra 20% to schools for lost property taxes - railroads pay property taxes on their roads).
Better bus and rail service can attract riders that have a choice. And this is fairer to those that cannot drive (they get no benefit from that $100 billion/year subsidy for raids).
The French have discovered that total lifecycle costs for trams (light rail) is cheaper than buses for busy routes. That is why almost every town of 100,000 in France has recently built two tram lines.
If they cared about democracy they wouldn't have made a mockery of it during the primary.
