OK, to kick off discussion...
This article needs to concentrate on facts, rather than poking fun at Raleigh (which it does) or boosting the city (which it doesn't - but some people might want to do). I say the whole article needs a rewrite.
Additionally, while I totally empathize and agree with the frustration of TTA's lack of federal funding of the planned light rail system, I don't think we need the line about Global War On Terror, Inc. Best to keep politics out of a friendly resource for potential visitors. It's just the Southern way of doing things! 220.127.116.11 02:31, 22 October 2006 (EDT)
Unfair knocks on Durham.
I think both this and the Durham article make unfair digs at Durham. Durham's crime is actually declining... whereas Raliegh's is increasing. I don't think it's necessary to say "especially Durham". It sends the wrong message about Durham. I have lived there for the past thirteen years and it's a wonderful place to live and visit. The local news paints an inaccurate picture of crime in Durham.
The slams at durham are also bull: http://www.indyweek.com/gyrobase/Content?oid=oid%3A31990 note the stats.
