Re: “The snake, he dead

You killed a wild animal with an axe because it was doing what it does to survive. That's your best solution? You're doing it wrong.

Re: “The snake, he dead

So you killed the snake because he was stealing the chickens' eggs just like you were stealing the chickens' eggs? At least the snake was eating for survival. Expect another snake to take this one's place.

This reminds me of how ranchers kill wolves who kill cows that ranchers want to kill. Wild animals are the "collateral damage" of the inherently violent industry of animal "farming."

Re: “How to advocate for biking

in addition you can participate in any of the Triangle towns' advocacy groups like the Carrboro Bicycle Coalition (http://bikecarrboro.com/), the Bicycle Alliance Chapel Hill (BACH: www.facebook.com/bikechapelhill), or Bike Durham (http://www.bikedurham.com/)

Re: “N.C. protestors refuse deal from courts

Good for her. It would be nice to see a trial schedule published, so that interested parties might bear witness.

Re: “Conservative group demands emails of UNC official after he criticizes Gov. McCrory in newspaper column

I worked for the state (as part of a university IT division) years ago and applied a simple rule for myself - anything that wasn't very strictly work related was done through my personal e-mail.

Also, when the stipend was offered for personal mobile phones (because they ceased providing and paying for mobiles assigned to individual, particularly those whose duties included off-hours on-call) I declined it because a requirement of receiving it was that my personal mobile records became public record.

Re: “Durham development: What's being built where and who can afford it?

Irv919 is right. This is a completely manufactured problem. A non-story. These downtown units being built are mid to upper market and were not built to meet HUD's (or Indy's) definition of affordable housing.

Stay tuned for next week's feature by Indy's cutting edge research team: "The Average Citizen Cannot Afford To Eat at Vin Rouge Every Night", and "Bus Drivers Do Not Make Enough to Buy a Lexus"

Re: “Is Farm Aid coming to Durham in 2014? Maybe

Amazing that there are no update regarding Farm Aid coming to Raleigh. Biggest music news for the Triangle in a long, long time and Indy Week is silent on this.

How does Indy Week see themselves as relevant?

Re: “August 13 crossword solution

I meant to say
While you might look askance because you are LEERY or wary, it does not mean you are LEERing. Am I missing something?

Re: “August 13 crossword solution

118 down clue "look askance"
118 answer "leer"
Please explain this to me as in my thinking these are contradictory meanings.

I've always thought that to look "askance" was to purposely look AWAY from something (often done in a side-wise manner,) usually because of wariness, distrust or skepticism.
Whereas I've always believed that to "leer" was to purposely look TOWARD something (even if done in a "side-wise" manner), usually because of sexual or malicious intent.
How can you leer at something that you can't see? Why would you look askance of something that you wanted to see?
While you might look askance because you are LEARY, it does not mean you are LEERing. Am I missing something?

Re: “The 18-month legacy of the state's deputy budget director

New N.C. employment/unemployment numbers out today -- and they're bad. The "Carolina Comeback" that McCrory and Pope are claiming is more like a "Carolina Dropback," caused at least in part by their misguided policy decisions:

Re: “One: A Story of Love and Equality

This is a really great effort to capture the views of the equality of love and marriage in the LGBTQ community. I have to commend Becca and Melina for a well put together film to capture the views for ammendment one.. It is obvious they spent a lot of time and effort even when they knew it was a battle just to speak to the community who were for the ammendment.

This is definitely well created and a must see.

A moving and inspiring documentary about the people of on both sides of the Amendment One issue. A must-see, especially for everyone in NC.
