Re: “Durham’s New Parking Meters Are Confusing. We’re Here to Help.

When I hear the echo chamber justification for exchanging free parking for metered spaces, "something virtually every fast-growing city eventually decides to do", I am reminded of the old sayings I heard over and over again as a child. "If someone else jumps off of a cliff are you going to follow them?" "Two wrongs don't make a right." Just to name a couple.

As you might can tell I am adamantly opposed to the metered parking. They say that "the stated goal hasn't been to raise money but rather to increase turnover of in-demand on-street parking spaces downtown." What a bad joke. If that is the objective, put time limits on parking spaces and issue citations. You can use the same personnel that will be used to monitor the metered spots. And you can price the citations to make up for the money you "weren't trying to make." If you want to grub for money, don't lie about it. That makes it even more pathetic and dishonest to boot.

Hey Indy, great article but can we reference the other artists included within the show ? Remember that whole " little recognition within the local art community".

SJW, don't you know we "need" density? We "need" to be forced out of our cars and into a CAT bus or Meeker's shiny new light rail. Don't get in the way of "prigress."

Re: “Born in the Shadow of N.C. State, Steeped in Parties and Punk Rock, Raleigh’s Historic Maiden Lane Will Soon Perish in the Name of Progress

Proud former resident of #8, 1978-80. We had a few memorable parties there back in the day. Loved the location - we could walk back to the room during set breaks by th Cigaretz down at the Free Advice. Why? "It's fat puppy time!"

Like ERO above, the memories of those days will endure. There was a Remember Park Avenue Mayday bumper sticker; we need a May Maiden Lane live forever! one.

I hate this. Raleigh's charm is being chewed up and spit out with ordinary and expensive. I can hardly afford to live here and I'm fifth generation in Raleigh. Are there any city leaders that were born and raised in Raleigh? If so I wish they cared more about Raleigh's history

Re: “Two N.C. State Reps Want to Label Some Disruptive Protesters Economic Terrorists, Criminalize Blocking Streets During Protests

I wonder if it's too late to include making legislators who vote for giant tax cuts also subject to the economic terrorist felony statutes. And for good measure, let's throw in lying about solar farms and trying to circumvent approved solar projects as economic terrorism, as well.

Re: “Here’s How N.C. Politicians Are Responding to the Breaking Sessions Scandal

The Republicans lie, constantly and consistently! Which is why Sessions cannot remember anything. Burr is a total failure - his conduct in ignoring the need for investigation of Trump-Russia cannot be explained by anything but cowardice, ignorance and disdain for his constituents. Walker is too dense to understand the issues and is very poorly qualified to comment, or anything else for that matter. He is too bound up in serving his evangelical base to give a damned about the larger constituency of the 6th District. The entire Trump cabal is a total clown show and should be cancelled forthwith. As for ACA, they have no replacement and will become the death panels they warned about as they sabotaged Obama as he tried to set ACA up. And, they sabotaged everything else during his tenure. They are not public servants, but serfs to the rich sponsors of America's decline and demise. Bring some of these idiots, like Sessions, up on charges of treason.

Mark Walker's constant concern about "tension" is so cheesy and obnoxious. This is the same guy who complained that Bruce Springsteen was being a bully for cancelling a concert in Greensboro over HB2.

Re: “Born in the Shadow of N.C. State, Steeped in Parties and Punk Rock, Raleigh’s Historic Maiden Lane Will Soon Perish in the Name of Progress

I am heartbroken. We lived at 12 1/2 Maiden Lane during college in the early 80's, next door to what we considered a middle aged couple (looking back probably only late 30's). It was such a cool relaxed street mixed with Frats, students, working people and who knows what they did, but the dogs played and we all chatted and looked out for one another. That apartment had been passed down from student to student that worked at the Breakfast House at the corner. What has happened to that strip of Hillsborough street is a disgrace, no character across from the Bell Tower, just brick building after brick building

Re: “Born in the Shadow of N.C. State, Steeped in Parties and Punk Rock, Raleigh’s Historic Maiden Lane Will Soon Perish in the Name of Progress

I wonder what effort, if any, was made by the area's Business Improvement District -- run by and known as the Hillsborough Street "Community" Service Corporation and supported by tax dollars -- to focus redevelopment in this area while preserving the homes. It seems like the economic redevelopment efforts by the HSCSC are always upzone-and-bulldoze without respect to the area's history and significant character. Yuck.

Raleigh will continue to rip down historic parts of the city until we get a majority on council that supports Raleigh's history and neighborhoods. I'm thankful for Councilors Crowder, Stephenson and Cox who are the ultimate neighborhood supporters. It's an elections year folks, you need to get out and VOTE!

Re: “Byrd Is the Word: Jonathan Byrd Reflects on His Craft and Carolina

This is a great article. Well chosen words. Thanks.

I'm leaving this comment here so there is a place on the internet where my name appears with Jonathan Byrd and Leonard Podolak, two of the finest and old friends by this point. I hope to find this comment again randomly sometime in the 20's.

It is a shame to see the city doing this to one of the oldest (if not THE oldest) neighborhoods around NCSU. The Brewer house is most likely older than 1900. There have been fraternities occupying the houses since at least WWII.
