Re: “What Do Lakewood Residents Think of Their Neighborhood's Newest High-End Restaurant?

Phoebe Lawless did not replace the panaderia. She took an empty storefront (it had been empty for years!) and turned it into something. She should not be made to feel guilty for providing a service, creating jobs, and enhancing the streetscape. We live one mile from this restaurant. We have not eaten there yet because it's not in our budget. So what? Other people can enjoy it and hopefully other businesses will also move in that we can frequent (like Cocoa Cinnamon).

There is no pride in shuttered laundromats and empty bakeries.

Re: “Raleigh bar advertises with offensive language

Seriously, did the owners of the Goat bribe its patrons with beer to get them to wage a letter-writing campaign? One thing can be said about the flyer. It's offensive. The owner knew it was offensive, and that's why he added "No Offense"--linguistically rolling his eyes at those of us who have a sense of propriety. Can we imagine a similar flyer that encourages us to get "nappy headed" during Black History Month? "If you are racist, you can correctly identify racism?" That's a good question for the owner of the Goat, who claims to not be racist. Usually, if someone begins a sentence: "Now I'm not racist, (sexist, homophobic, etc) but..." rest assured, that person is pretty likely racist.
