In our annual “Best of WNC” survey, readers told us their most- and least-favorite Mountain Xpress features, among picks in scores of other categories.
The winners, for “favorite feature in Xpress”:
1) [tie] News of the Weird
1) [tie] Asheville Disclaimer
2) Cranky Hanke (movie reviews)
The winners, for “least-favorite feature in Xpress”:
2) [tie] Personals
2) [tie] The Straight Dish (food section)
3) Cranky Hanke (movie reviews)
You’ll notice that there are come curious contradictions here — or at least evidence suggesting a love/hate relationship with some features. For example, the Asheville Disclaimer tied for first place in both the most- and least-favorite categories.
Do you agree with the voting results above, or not? And either way, why? What exactly do you like or dislike about the features that are both loved and loathed? We’d really like to know.
