I am reminded of that story that ran through the pages of the Last Whole Earth Catalog.

Re: “The allure of an all-steel home

It is only the modular and factory buildings that will provide a surplus. Only from a surplus is "Fair" housing possible, though it takes more than that.

Re: “Modern Oakwood house sees its day in court

I have photographs of a Frank Lloyd Wright house on a street off East Ave.. I believe it is the Boylton house. There is no other house quite like it. There it is.
Whenever it was that people came to feel they owned the neighborhood view, past, present, and future reflects some sort of reason for me to not be a part of it.
I'm involved in advancing factory modular buildings because without using that technique you can't keep up with demand.
Fair housing requires a surplus and I'd rather have a crane set things together in a day, than two or three months or a year of construction traffic and noise.

Re: “At UNC, Silent Sam romanticizes the Civil War and the old South

Can we have a statue of a Union soldier sticking a bayonet through Silent Sam, or can we get Silent Sam's hands all red with blood? A good list of all the Daughters of the Confederacy Southern CSA state statues and how many citizens were lynched wherever the statues stood would be nice. These statues and monuments encouraged the Klan and the Wilmington coup and kept the war going. War never ends you know, never.

Re: “Sally Greene

The fact is Carolina North is stalled. Swamp gas will be delivered. Electricity and optical fiber are going in the j conduit.
The abandoned airport property is well located and would fit for modular building easily with minimum investments. Shipping container living and working spaces can be put together for under 20 grand.
Frankly I'd ask IKEA to come in and hire because of their progress and international distribution that would insure work and expansion of employment in the building sector.
Tranditional building techniques are 30 percent waste. Only modular building techniques will keep ahead of demand.

Re: “Two weeks without the Possum, Part One: John Howie Jr. reflects on his youth and an evening with George Jones

The two tributes to George Jones are brilliant insightful writings by two accomplished musicians. Certainly we are warned of the humiliations that can come from fame, others knowing too much about your business, by the lives of people like George Jones, whose business is their lives, and what they have to sell.
Some of us survive and just to be spiteful. Others end up walking around like demigods looking down quietly and kindly.
Sounds like Georges Jones was in the latter category.
I admit that some of my note here is informed by being close enough to watch Mr,Jones backstage as the electrician on a show in the Greensboro Auditorium. I am grateful to know both Mr. Howie, and Mr. Maxwell. Mr. Maxwell is on the road to having his own magazine, and or a show on VICE.
