Here’s the note from loyal reader Lucy:
My name is Lucy, me and a few friends have started a radical blog of news and culture in Asheville. We intend it to be a place to find under reported news and radical analysis of current issues facing Asheville and the surrounding regions. We also want it to be entertaining and funny, the title is an obvious jab at the Mountainx, a paper that we feel has lost its way. The Xpress was once a source for local news and commentary about real issues, now its basically a cheerleader for hipster food trucks and buskers. We intend to focus on those in Asheville who care less about what new fancy expensive restaurant is opening and who are much more concerned with the growing problems of gentrification and malnutrition in WNC.
