I always say that. "Where are the diners?" Someday there will be one I am sure. Yeah with some good coffe. I can't wait. How bout Rt.40 Diner.
Here we go again, someone who is telling the misinformed folks from NC how great it is up North. I wonder if anyone has considered that there may in fact be a culture clash going on with NC natives and neuvo riche northerners. Ever try talking to one?'s the same stuff. We have; We had; We did; We won. Gimmie a barf bag!
I think that would be a great idea. Although I love living here better, I miss Diners. The food was amazing and lots to choose from. I had heard of a Diner trying to open here from Li, NY but was shot down for the 24 hr thing. I don't know, but I do wish we had one here. I think it definitaly would catch on... We'll see. Thanks Kevin for that, I think it's a good starting point!
Well buddy I thought your blog was amusing. Although I didn't actually take it seriously. Keep writing.
I don't think the political clout of the state of North Carolina rests in the hands of people that frequent diners. First, NC people are more than not, slow to make changes. It would take awhile for enough of them to go and start eating in diners for them to form a politcal consensus. Next, enough of the social interaction that a supposed diner would facilitate already occurs here in our state. It's called WALMART! The next time you go there, just look and see how many people are standing around chatting about politics and blocking up the isles like a social hour nightmare. Most of the Walmart shoppers are already spending the better part of most any working person's dollar in the form of welfare and government aid and healthcare. Why should not that be a powerful politcal scene. And a final third note, diners favor the locl crowds. If you have not noticed, there ain't many of them locals left these days. Kevin, nice try bud, I'd like to think that it was as simple as this. When NC starts to have a dramatic increase in the union workers of America, then it might stand a chance of having a larger part into the politcal process of the nation. And personally, I'm ashamed of the ambulance chasing, $400 haircut, two-Americas far left liberal Edwards as well. He in no way speaks for the majority of us, locals or not.
I'm not sure how a blog entry like this can be taken seriously, but wow. Blaming diners for the political inactivism of North Carolinians is a bit absurd. Maybe if we didn't produce politicians on the National Stage (Edwards), who no one in his own state even liked, we'd get a bit more respect. And as far as diners, I doubt you'd truly find any better place for "heart of the people" diners than those you'd find in little towns across this state. All the famous BBQ road stops, famous hamburger and hot dog restaurants spread out across our state, they are most definitely there. It's just that NC isn't one of the "main" political states. Plus, they probably all think we're like Edwards ::shudders::
