Re: “Four 16-team "super conferences" is the way to go in college football

The concept that since this is inevitable, it's by definition good ... that's what got us here. Whether good for football or not, the superconference concept is the final nail in the destruction of the rest of college sports,
revenue (i.e., hoops) and non-revenue.

Re: “City's crime crackdown: Step a-w-a-y from the house concerts, Bett Padgett.

These house concerts are a public service, and a great contribution to the artistic lifeblood of the city. They take place at night, when parking is plentiful. They end reasonably early, the the physical setup of the Little Lake Hill house and grounds is ideally suited for hosting, and they could in no way be considered disruptive. The city inspectors should reconsider their interpretation, if only because enforcement on an across the board basis would lead to the many absurd results mentioned. The City Council should, in any case, request clarification and, if necessary, redraft the ordinance. Raleigh needs more top quality music, not less.

Re: “Stiller trashes L.A. (and Vietnam), Woody digs Barcelona

"Remember when Chris Rock made jokes about Jude Law and nobody laughed at the Oscars?" I like Chris Rock a lot, but the Jude Law riff barely made sense, and wasn't particularly well thought out. It really wasn't funny. "Remember how the industry has currently dissed THE WIRE while having a self induced orgy over MAD MEN?" On that point, you are clearly correct. It seems clear enough that Stiller is painting the Downey character as a pretentious idiot who's doing the old 'De Niro gaining 50 pounds' Raging Bull thing, only badly and inappropriately. While I'll reserve judgment until I see it, I have to think this is mocking odd racial casting rather than representing it.
