"Faust and Burnet are basically creating sedentary rock at warp speed." Isn't all rock pretty sedentary? ;)
I'd have nominated the Upstate accent, myself. Just watch a video of Lindsey Graham speaking. Charleston has one of the few elegant regional accents left, IMO. And how did Maine miss this tournament? It's endearing as hell, but talk about marbles in your mouth...
Don't remodel! The design was the one good part.
This doesn't add up. First, how would 12:00 a.m. vs 2:00 a.m. mean anything to a company open from 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the latest? Second, how would three rumored "startups" have any clout to affect an entire city's culture? Startups start and fail every hour. What seems more likely: random people from Ohio and anonymous startup kings magically swaying city council into lock step, or a huge new hotel and established Upper King business who have money to make by lobbying to impose restrictions on new business on their turf?
The nice thing about streetcars is that cars and streetcars can share the same road. I think closing King St. to car traffic makes sense without really disrupting traffic patterns on the Peninsula. Having a streetcar loop going down King, Broad, around to E. Bay and back up Calhoun could actually work. I'm not holding my breath, though.
