[quote]Less than 30 percent kill rate. Is this typical, or is Chicago really inaccurate? And just wondering how many shootings there are where no one gets hit...[/quote] That’s better than average. For the year it’s 412 murdered out of 2326 total people shot ...

re: What can you tell me about Charlotte NC? - Bruco
[quote]would probably rent something in Southend, Dilworth, NODA, or off Sewlyn road or Park Road near the Park Road Shopping center.[/quote] That’s good advice, even SouthPark is becoming a decent option for renters.

re: What can you tell me about Charlotte NC? - Bruco
Rent first in SouthEnd for a year, then decide. At some point, normal traffic will return and your wife will be hating life if she commutes from SC or Ballantyne or the Lake Norman area. Look at a map, drawn a line south on Park Rd, a line south on Independence and research all the areas in ...
