Comment and analysis on all things Charlotte

Greetings and HELP!

You’ve stumbled on the launch of Meck Deck, our little attempt to help bring some sanity to the socio-politico-culturo Charlotte scene. I’m Jeff Taylor and I’m coming to you live from my South Charlotte command post, and judging by the proto gasoline lines popping up across town, I may be here awhile.

Wow, $3.09 for premium. I feel positively European. This keeps up and I’ll be in chunky man-sandals and smoking in no time. I wonder if Tom Cox can squint and see Paris?

    Jeff,

    I’m certainly glad to see Meck Deck up and running, and I’m sure many folks in Charlotte and the surrounding area are going to enjoy it. But I’m afraid that you may be starting things off with a skewed perspective: you’d have to get gas prices up a lot higher than $3 these days to be truly a world-class city.

    Jeff,

    if the prices keep climbing, maybe there will someday be justification for a rail system in Charlotte! oh yeah, we don’t really need justification, we can make that up.
