I used to like you guys a lot more. Back in the old days, I could read very informative articles in Mountain Xpress that dealt with the issues that confronted either a small portion or a big slice of Buncombe County, or Western North Carolina as a whole.
I felt like you grabbed onto a theme that had been in the Asheville Citizen-Times the previous week, and explored it in more depth than the C-T was able to.
Now, as far as I'm concerned, you're a local beer-and-food rag that is disinterested in, like, front-page exploration of the themes and occurrences that are swirling all around us! What happened?
Beer's great, I drink it … next subject! Local food's great, yeah, I eat it. One hundred years ago, that's all folks ate! Next subject!
There are things, human survival/type things, that are circling like buzzards around our fair mountain aerie, and Xpress is strangely mute or muted at best.
I don't grab the newest edition of Xpress with the same enthusiasm I used to. Y'all burnt out?
