LETTER: The Wolfpack Roars 

Brent Baldwin's "Hop, Twirl or a Twerk" preview in your Aug. 28 edition states that at the Hopscotch Festival in Raleigh, N.C., attendees could "Expect a college vibe thanks to nearby Duke and University of North Carolina."

It's like saying, "At the Fall Line Fest in Richmond, expect a college vibe thanks to nearby University of Richmond and University of Virginia." Regrettable.
