Apple Chill Goes Sour

Chapel Hill's spring street fair took a sad turn for the worse yesterday, with a handful of people shot in the closing hours of the annual orgy. Orange Politics has the best links, as well as a good discussion thread. Ironically, a number of downtown merchants had been asking the town to rethink the festival, arguing (rightly, in my opinion) that the event had strayed from its original intent of providing good, clean family fun with local arts and crafts. The News and Observer has the story, too.


it's a shame

my friend was robbed at gunpoint last night on rosemary street. we talked to the police...and they said that they hate apple chill and have been trying to see it officer said something to the effect of, "i guess more people need to die before this thing gets shut down for good"....

every year it's the same story.
