Re: “The Triangle's Top 10 Albums of 2012

dB's "Falling Off the Sky". 'Nuff said. Of course, maybe they don't meet your definition of "local", whatever that is...

Re: “The Year in Pictures 2010

While the Iraq War was, in retrospect, unjustified; the war in Afghanistan most certainly was not. The Taliban government was given every opportunity to deal with Al Qaeda on their own and they chose not to, knowing full well what the consequences would be. They were harboring those who had killed more Americans than the Japanese had at Pearl Harbor; in fact, they were sheltering them. For nations that consider us to be their enemy yet lack the conventional military power to strike against us, the tacit support of terrorist organizations has become the preferred method of achieving their foreign policy and ideological goals. Therefore, the 9/11 attacks were an act of war against this nation, sanctioned by the Taliban.

Re: “Gone missing: The country's conscience, brain and heart

"I can't explain why Americans would vote to return to an economic philosophy that imploded in their faces just two years ago"...

I can. The alternative suggested by the Democrats is a return to an economic philosophy that imploded in our faces thirty years ago during Jimmy Carter's presidency. We want different solutions, we want inspired solutions, we want uniquely "American" solutions that are both effective and in step with American ideals.

Re: “Gone missing: The country's conscience, brain and heart

What Crowther does not recognize is that, as a nation founded on the principles of liberty, self-reliance, and personal responsibility, voters take issue when newly-enacted government programs such as health care reform toss these principles to the wind. True, we wanted affordable health care for all but the system that's just been implemented is an affront to these uniquely American ideals. During his campaign, Obama promised that it would not be so - there would be no mandate, there would be flexibility, there would be reduced costs. The plan, as enacted, has none of these. Yes, the arrogance of the left has awakened a sleeping giant. Hopefully, the new Republican majority in the House will take note: we want solutions - job creation, health care coverage, prudent financial reform are all critical to the future of this country - but do NOT embrace expediency while sacrificing those principles that make us, well, Americans.

Re: “Chapel Hill's the dB's play Carrboro

They're considered a Chapel Hill band since Stamey, Holsapple, and Rigby (not sure about Holder) all attended UNC approximately 1973-76 and were members of various Triangle bands such as Sneakers and The H-Bombs. The cross-pollination that had begun a few years earlier in Winston-Salem bands such as Little Diesel and Rittenhouse Square simply continued once the boys relocated to CH.
