Good,,,,it was my favorite part of the paper.
I'm sorry but I'm going to have to agree, this whole thing reads as arrogant, high & mighty, ungrateful & disappointing. Don't expect a thank you from me or most of my peers that you should have "asked" and "listened to" and "catered to" in the first place, before this ridiculous controversy ever came up. I'm glad it's back in print but you've still got a long long way to go. I won't claim to have all of the answers but I certainly hope you all figure it out before you botch it all up again. Good Luck.
Hmm, first paragraph you use a stupid stereotype about pit bulls. Then you proceed to drop a couple times that you have been an editor for a national mag and generally build yourself up when you were the one who made the dumb ass mistake. How about pumping up local bands instead of inflating your own ego. You have been writing for "3 decades" Doesn't seem like it.
you know, the least you could have done is write this up with a little class. this "announcement" reads like a crabby babysitter throwing candy at unruly kids. bringing back the concert listings doesn't make you a knight in shining armor to the music scene of charlotte. it doesnt solve the serious gaps in the coverage of the charlotte music scene that your magazine consistently displays, and acting high and mighty about it doesnt win you any popularity contests either. wherever you're from, i assure you that charlotte likes their apologies sincere and heartfelt, not full of whining about being called nasty names after doing what can only be described as "nasty name-worthy." get over yourself, and get out to a venue besides the fillmore to cover a real local show!
Well i'm not sure if ya brought it back for people like me hahahahaha I smoke meth naked with raccoon's ,but i'm damn glad to see it back,there are so much talent here and people need to know it.So party on Wayne Party on Garth,lets rock and roll.
Good times good times...like the blog (I'd say it's a very accurate depiction)! Just wanted to note the time you stated on your stick bug video (4AM) haha!
Congratulations on your escape from the hustle and bustle of city life, even if just for a brief moment to enjoy the distant view of those beautiful mountains.
You have to have dimsum, wonton noodles, the street food and clothes shopping in Mong Kok. There's a street that sells a lot of unique things along with knock-offs, i don't remember the name right now, if you plan to buy things there, make sure you haggle, pay at least 1/2 of what they want.
For the bar scene, go to Lan Kwai Fong.
Head to Lan Kwai Fong - probably the most fun you'll ever have. http://www.lankwaifong.com/index.php?page=…
Eat Dragon Fruit. Avoid the fish vagina (no, I'm not kidding).

Hey Ivan!!! So, what should I be seeking then? I already had YUMMY noodles and brown rice cheese bread but I'm looking for something extra... HONG KONG. Ideas? :)
Welcome to my hometown. Enjoy your stay. I hope your hosts will show you an authentic side of HK. PS. You won't find used panties vending machines in HK. That's supposedly in Japan. ;) -Ivan (Acuraworld)
Now that's a brilliant comeback. I will have to remember it. As for real commentary...Libs believe real commentary consists of name calling. Very clever indeed.
Something'shangingfromyournose, it's just too bad YOU haven't had enough of this site. Otherwise, you wouldn't keep writing your clever-to-dumb-people sniping that I assume you think is real commentary.
Judging by its circulation and other CL papers going under, I would say that "yes", people have had enough.
if they are doing this to preserve the institution of marriage ...then why is divorce still legal ? this ban is not about God this ban it about hate and discrimination of a group of citizens of the United States that some people believe should not have the same rights as everyone else
Very well written, John, as always. I'll always treasure my good fortune to be there at the time I was. We did some great work, that ragtag gang of weirdos we referred to as "Editorial."
Well, gosh, Mr. Grooms. That's so kind of you to say. I had no idea that I fooled you into thinking we were doing anything like that in Atlanta!
And, you sir, whether you knew it or not, modeled something ultimately more important for a journalist: Absolute fearlessness in calling baloney baloney, and in saying when the emperor had no clothes.
Yes, and it was also used by the Founding Fathers, if you want to reduce arguments to ridiculous non-sequiturs.
"for the common good" was a phrase oft used by the Communists in their bloody rise to power.
If the ballpark plan included street-level retail in several of its facades (I'm not sure that it does), then I'd be fine with it since they would serve some non-game day functions. While I can dream up some better uses of those blocks too, I don't see anyone stepping up to make them a reality any time soon.
I think the current, still-significant scale of Bearden park under construction is actually a wiser move than the massive layout originally proposed. With both the ballpark and the park, what I don't want to see is single-use super blocks, something that Charlotte is all too infamous for.
