Re: “Savoyard's problematic PRINCESS IDA raises more questions than it answers

Byron, I have not tried to refute any of your comments. I have simply asked for more information and reported a fact about the score. I am still waiting to hear back from you by email (I emailed you last Thursday morning as you suggested and have yet to hear back from you with specifics). I, personally, would like the information on problems with specific songs since if there are problems that we are not aware of, I would like to make sure they are corrected. If for some reason you did not get my email, you can email me directly at clubjuggler at gmail dot com.

Re: “Savoyard's problematic PRINCESS IDA raises more questions than it answers

Hi Byron, as the orchestra manager and the double bassist of the Durham Savoyards, I'd be interested to know which songs you thought the lower strings were inaudible on. The orchestra this year was exactly the same size as it was last year. The score of Princess Ida, however, is noticeably thinner than the score of Mikado. For instance, in many places in Ida, the double bass only comes in when the chorus is singing. I will admit that there were a couple of times where the orchestra and chorus weren't exactly in sync on Thursday night but those were the exception and were corrected in subsequent performances.

Now if we can just the the American Tobacco Trail bridge over I-40 done in a timely fashion!

Re: “Portions of the American Tobacco Trail may provide more adventure than you want

Oh good grief! This is the most ridiculous story I've seen from the Indy. The bridges in Chatham county have never been open yet and if you didn't know that then you obviously didn't do your research. Perhaps you should try doing that before writing a story trashing the trail.

Oh, and by the way, the Chatham county bridges should be done by this summer.

Re: “N.C. House will vote today on deregulating phone service

It looks like the line "This subsection shall only apply to a local exchange company for a franchise area or territory in which not less than ninety percent (90%) of the households in each local exchange have some combination of reliable wireless service and/or broadband service where the download speed is at least 1.5Mbps and the upload speed is at least 384Kbps." was changed to be "A local exchange company shall not be permitted to make the election under this section unless it commits to provide stand‑alone basic residential lines to rural customers at rates comparable to those rates charged to urban customers for the same service." I guess the lawmakers care more about basic phone service than broadband and think that this provides enough incentive to keep those rates low. So much for rural broadband, though. At this point, it will almost certainly end up being cheaper for a local municipality to lay its own fiber lines and start offering service. (That would also, I think, tend to make the incumbent communities take pause before jacking up rates.)

Re: “Legislature debates transit, broadband and cigarettes

Good summary of the anti-broadband bill and glad to see you referenced your previous article. Might I suggest, however, that when referencing the previous article, you link to it? :-)

Here's the link:
