Here’s the email I got recently:

I want a ‘HYPE CITY AVL ‘ bumpersticker
or is ‘WAY OVERLY HYPED CITY AVL’ better?
maybe ‘HYPED ASHVEGAS’
We don’t need more people here.
You can see the impact it is having year to year on Asheville.
My only hope is to leave as soon as I can, to escape the hype-hole. At least I can find a better job and better rent almost anywhere else.
I’ve heard many stories from people who moved here. A year or so later they wondered why they came here in the first place.
Do what momma?
Is the title of the show going to be ‘Where NOT To Buy (Because You Can’t Afford It): First-Time Homebuyer Edition’?
Bring em into Orbit. We already horrified one national film crew last year.
Uh-oh. Sounds like a “Buying Alaska” type show for Asheville? “Buying Ashevegas”?
