this atomic age of renegades… (thanks Michael)

I know you’ve all been waiting on the edge of your seats [humor me here...]– but we have a winner for naming this thing! (Re) Introducing ‘Raleigh, Over-Easy’! The winning name actually coming from Kris Larson [I know, I spent 2 years trying to get him to help me name this thing – as it turns out, he just needed a prize…sigh.] The website will likely see some changes over the next few weeks so stay tuned if that hold’s any interest to you. Other close calls were The Daily Ash, The Raleigh Rundown, The Raleigh Radar, and The Daily Diversion. Huge thank you to everyone who submitted a name and who voted!
