Re: “From the publisher: A note to our readers about editorial staff changes

Why is anyone entitled to know why Lisa Sorg is no longer employed at INDY Week? Isn't the a private matter between the employer and employee?

The answer is "Yes". It's none of your business.

While I will miss Lisa Sorg's articles and editorial style, I think people are being a bit over-reactionary with claims of "I will never ever read the Indy ever again".

Give the new editorial staff a chance before instantly dismissing them.

Re: “Raleigh bars tell the city where it can shove its sidewalk permits

There really is no viable point to this asinine regulation. Basically, bars can have 1000 patrons stand on their sidewalks to smoke, but not drink. So, this becomes the end result of the regulation's logic:
• Smokers can't smoke inside. They need to stay outside to smoke.
• Drinkers can't drink outside. They need to stay inside to drink.
• Drinker who smokes? Well... all I can say is that I sincerely hope that nobody drugs your beverage when you go outside to smoke (and that is not an exaggeration. This sort of shit happens).

So, to me, this regulation is actually endangering citizens while protecting or benefiting nobody (except a couple of folks who don't like the noise or dirty sidewalks).

And don't even get me started on how this regulation will harm businesses, harm workers, is unfair, is relatively unenforceable. It's just bad, reactionary legislation that will hopefully be changed for the better in 3 months.

Re: “The N.C. State Fair's new talent strategy, at last, nods to the locals

I applaud GCH and The Indy's efforts to highlight the need for more local music at the State Fair. I go every year, but have had little interest in the fair's musical offerings (outside of the occasional bluegrass jig played at the Village of Yesteryear). For once, I have an actual reason to attend a show at Dotron.

Let's be honest: Who wouldn't rather see the Love Language or The Bleeding Hearts over Scotty McCreery (or any other NC native prime-time talent show winner)?

Grayson is absolutely correct in that this is an experiment. It's a risk. If it falls flat, fails to make more more (or lose less) money that previous offerings, if attendance drops, it's very possible that this endeavor will not be repeated. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

My concern is the basic nature of the fair itself: People don't traditionally go to the fair to hear music. It's never been a focus. It's the midway, rides, games, shopping, exhibits, produce, animals, and sugar-coated deep-fried monstrosities.

I hope this fair is an exception. I'm hopeful, but not overly confident. Regardless, I plan on seeing a couple of shows while I'm there. I'm doing it to support local music - something I sincerely love.

See you all at the See Gulls set!

The web interface is so goddamn awful, it gave me diabetes.
