Re: “If Raleigh wants to be a world-class city, it needs planning, personality and architects.

What things need to change for Raleigh to get more interesting buildings? Does the planning processes and building inspection processes keep developers from building unusual, interesting buildings? The article doesn't offer a lot of solutions to the problem of boring Soviet era style buildings.

Re: “Raleigh one of nation's most affordable cities, say people who've never tried to buy a house here

There is a teardown up the street on Ridge Road for $350k. You could put in another $400k to build a house and have a nice little place.

Re: “An unceremonious, non-musical farewell for the Cameron Village Underground

I spent way too much time down in the subway back in the day. It was sad when it all ended and I don't remember the reasons. I suppose the surrounding neighborhoods didn't want the bar scene there, but I could be mistaken. I still have a Fabulous Knobs t-shirt, but strangely, it has shrunk over the decades so it doesn't fit anymore.

Re: “The rents in Raleigh are too damn high

Walking yesterday evening with a meetup through Ridgewood, they marveled at the huge houses going up. I noted that you don't build a $150k house on a $500k lot. Land prices are not getting any cheaper as the huge growth continues.

Re: “Stylistic collisions with good and bad results at Carolina Ballet

Wow, I have to say that the hip-hop dance was my favorite of the evening by far. I have attended dozens of evenings with the Carolina Ballet over the years and very few dances follow any sort of story except for the pantomimes. The Rite of Spring was good. The middle dance, Asylum, was my least favorite though it was good. I obviously don't understand dance like the expert reviewer.

I am very happy that Weiss is mentoring younger choreographers. I'm also happy that Zalman Raffael decided to avoid the unnecessary gymnastic moves that some of the other young choreographers include in their creations.
