I said 1897 - and what difference does it make what the population was? It was robust enough to warrant having FOUR banks - no small thing. It was a nice place to live even then - before the Hornets, before the Panthers, before we became the #2 banking center in the country. It will remain a nice place to live even if we lose some of those banks.

Case closed.
Sorry, but that is not progressive, if you want CLT to remain the same forever I suggest you move to North Wilkeboro or Statesville or some other small town.
I want Charlotte to stay exactly the same forever? HUH? Do you read what people write?

I was referring to the strain that our infrastructure here has undergone w/ such rapid growth.

Don't even start w/ twisting my words around, Gonzo. I am not here to play games w/ a punk wanna-be journalist, wh/ your name seems to suggest you think you are.

Ok. Whatever you say.

Maybe if they built decent roads and a decent infrastructure in Charlotte there wouldn't be such a strain on the city.
Charlotte is not the first city to experience growth.
PS - Mods - why is this person making personal attacks on me?

My point is if Charlotte is experiencing growth maybe it should upgrade it's roads and infrastructure to accommodate the larger population, is that something unheard of in the history of civilization.
I am getting the feeling you have never been outside of NC or lived outside of NC.

Darlin, if you are trying to get work on the 1-800 psychic hotline, you better find another line of work, cause you are definitely not picking up the right info on me.

And it is obvious you know nothing about NC and how money is budgeted for roads/highways.

Or how taxes are collected and redistributed in this state.

If you did your homework, you would not be making such an obviously ill-informed statement about Charlotte's infrastructure. Or about me, for that matter.

Do you always use southern truck stop diner terms like "darling" and "Honey" when you are pissed?
Seems a bit passive/aggressive to me.
this isn't school, so I have no homework to do, it is just a BBS. Take a chill pill., Darling. Attempt to maintain a conversation without going into a fit of rage, Honey, because someone disagrees with your opinion.

OH GOOD GRIEF - are you really this much of a simpleton? The road and infrastructure issues are much more complicated than that.

Not to mention, Ani may be a NC native, but she is very well traveled and posted earlier about how much she enjoyed living in the midwest before coming back to Charlotte a few years ago. Do you read what we post or just spend all your time thinking of what inflammatory things to post?

Why bless his heart Ani, he thinks you're enraged, LOL. Now THAT is funny
