Re: “Pat McCrory Has Lost It

My governor's breath smells like cat food.

Re: “Destination Dix is Poised to Give Raleigh the Urban Park It Finally Deserves

"Hopefully, it will be a place with parking," he says."

Please just establish pedestrian access to downtown. Problem solved.

Re: “Does Downtown Raleigh Have Too Many Events?

Cut the number of road races that shut down downtown in half.

There. Problem solved.

Re: “Does Kay Crowder Have a Point on Bike Share in Raleigh?

Roy B and Kay Crowder have the situation dead to rights.

I'm certainly pro-bike-share (particularly now that my bike was stolen, again), and I'm not saying this is an either-or situation, but more attention needs to be paid towards sidewalk/bus stop infrastructure in the Triangle.

My favorite example is a covered bus-stop in Durham on 54, just east of where it goes under 40 near Fayetteville. There is a covered stop, that's great. There is also a sidewalk that runs about 25 yards on either direction, and terminates. Nothing like an elderly person in a wheelchair having to 'merge' on to a state highway because some urban planner failed to plan.

Re: “Why Is Duke Energy Pushing to Make Nuclear “Clean”?

No, I was rather happy. It was your response that was sad.

You'll note that I and your post are two completely different things.

But please do go on doing things for free that your friends on this thread are getting paid for.

Re: “In Cary, Neighbors Fight Yet Another Grocery Store

A Publix, Whole Paycheck, and a Teeter all essentially within essentially walking distance? Forget the (rightfully) aggrieved residents who will be watching semis unload lettuce at four in the morning while their property values plummet, how are they going to court workers, much less customers?

Meanwhile tens of thousands of folks between Cameron Village, NCSU, 40, Raleigh Bldvd, and Five Points are being serviced by a Taz Mart and Standard Foods.

Do people who distribute grocery store franchises smoke a particular brand of extra-strength crack?
