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." Ignoring the 30,000-plus student university less than a mile down the road from downtown Raleigh is almost blasphemous. N.C. State is to Raleigh what Virginia Commonwealth University is to Richmond. 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.
