Free, peaceful and fearless in 2013!

David Forbes should be ashamed of his fear-mongering, sensationalist, urine-yellow piece about Lexington Avenue. Terrorism is the use of fear to further an agenda, and Mountain Xpress has certainly enabled Forbes to do that — whatever his childish point might be. The use of phrases like "blood on the sidewalk” and "bare knuckles or blades," should be left to Quentin Tarantino and his ilk.

If you want to write scripts, go to L.A. If you want to do hard news about tough city streets, go to Detroit. Whatever you do, quit badmouthing downtown Asheville!

Decent, peaceful, liberated people live here, and we want neither your baseless denigration of our city's reputation, nor some overbearing police reaction to your baseless cries of violence in the streets.

— Sidney Nemms
