    "When the common good of a society is regarded as something apart from and superior to the individual good of its members, it means that the good of some men takes precedence over the good of others, with those others consigned to the status of sacrificial animals." Ayn Rand

    Harris Teeter Signs up all over the lot. I might be missing something, but is that going to be a bad thing? Easy bike ride from Canal and right next to the ABC store. Sounds like heaven...

    i'm looking forward to it. Food Lion has a little better pricing but the produce is terrible (with apologies to the great guys who work in the produce department but it is what it is..). HT has good produce and way better deli selection. also, FL will no longer grind meat, which torques me because i really like to know that my burger all comes from the same cow.

    I hope we get the Harris Teeter. I am not too satisfied with Food Lion's service, although their prices are fairly competitive. Regardless, we need something there to fill the Jubilee Park "gap." Hopefully, the Harris Teeter (if it comes) will bring more attention to the area - it would be nice to get our movie theater back. Harris Teeter, ABC & the movie theater would make a great tri-fecta.

    If you're on Canal, what block do you surf? I'm on 600 CB North.

    since this has evolved into the CB thread: i just went out at Pelican Watch...big and clean and gnarly on the inside, sea and sky are gray and ominous...no one out as far as the eye can see...i normally like surfing alone, but not today. caught a nice one and decided to leave it at that for the night. because one wave is a whole lot better than none...

    I surfed WB South End from 4:30 'til about 5:15. Everyone was closer to the pier--I was near the jetty and the water was smelling really fishy. Caught 4 pretty good waves but had to call it a day when a pod of baitfish got crushed by a fairly large shark about 6 feet away from me. Saw the shark but it was pretty sudsy, was either a "smaller" Bull or a Sand Tiger. I don't know that I have ever paddled that fast.
