Re: “Durham Ponders Possible Pot Enforcement Priorities with Push From FADE

If DPD gave the same amount of attention to simple possession as it does to stop sign, crosswalk, and school zone violations, that'd be about right.

Re: “Durham Ponders Possible Pot Enforcement Priorities with Push From FADE

If the city of Baltimore can systematically trample constitutional rights and target African American citizens for 20 years (as illuminated by a recent article on The Atlantic) through wink and nod policy, and basically get away with it (well, until that unfortunate accident with the rough ride and spinal injury), I think the DPD can figure out a way to "unofficially" (cough) not arrest people for pot.

It's really not that difficult. Just don't charge people. Problem solved.

Re: “Durham Ponders Possible Pot Enforcement Priorities with Push From FADE

"But city officials aren't quite clear as to what needs to happen if they decide to deprioritize misdemeanor marijuana arrests since marijuana is regulations are set by the state. "

You have an extra "is" in this sentence.

"There's two thoughts to this—pass an ordinance or directing the Durham Police Department to make misdemeanor marijuana arrests a low priority. And one of those options has less chance for the General Assembly to get involved than the other. "

There are, not "there is", two thoughts...

Re: “Richard Burr Wraps Himself in the Flag, Forgets What It Stands For

If you've seen Richard Burr outside of a major GOP "give me your bucks bazaar"--raise your hand! Oh, my!! Not many regular North Carolinians get to see or hear from Burr about jobs, affordable housing or bringing home the bacon. What's more-- the "invisible" senator was nowhere to be found Tuesday when his party's presidential nominee spoke in Wilmington. Huh? Guess Burr doesn't want North Carolinians to know he supports Trump because the party told him who to back and how to vote.

Maybe Richard Burr can explain why an American flag lapel pin makes him more patriotic than anyone else. Patriotism is about loyalty to America not allegiance to a political party over all else. Patriotism is about protecting the rights of all, including the incendiary and threatening comments of "Donny Dangerous."

BTW, gov. Pat McCrory didn't shy away from saying he supports Trump. McCrory delivered a cutesy stump speech for his flagging gubernatorial campaign.

Re: “With Land Purchased, Scrap Exchange Can Move Ahead on Expansion Plans

I'm confused. This appears to be a factual, snark-free article in the Indy Week. I didn't know those were allowed :)

Congrats on the new gig, Lauren - show 'em what journalistic integrity looks like!

Re: “Interview: Scott Avett Talks The Avett Brothers' True Sadness, Not Becoming a Farmer, And Not Making a Statement on HB 2

Plenty of celebrities, musicians, et al will come out in support of THE LEFT. Few have the courage to stand with non-left. I have loved Avett Bros. music forever, thought them very bold and courageous......now, not sure. :-( Courage is needed now more than ever, courage to stand boldly. If the Avetts won't, I reckon almost nobody will. I hoped for more, believing (sue me) these men are courageous, that their family brought them up to be so. We were meant to be courageous.........

Re: “Necessary evil: The business of nonprofits

Non-profits are just innocuous little entities existing in their own isolated corner of the economy. They do not hurt the economy, but they certainly do not carry it, either. Non-profits serve one distinct purpose – bettering the world while zeroing out their books. Non-profit organizations are a steady source of employment. Just because non-profits are not allowed to carry forward does not mean their operation does not require specialized jobs to be filled. In fact, in terms of day-to-day operations, non-profits run very similarly to for-profit corporations. Non-profits, like for-profits, rely on computer programmers, accountants, graphic designers and other specialized workers to ensure smooth operation. AGC founder Alan Gavornik personally commits his 32 years of entrepreneurship and business development excellence to facilitating the causes of the philanthropic community. AGC is committed to the prudent application of the successful business models and principals of the private sector to those of the philanthropic and public sector markets. His consulting, coaching and training services to the non-profit community are delivered on both a discounted basis as well as through a host of pro bono engagements. AGC has a mission to boost the performance of non profit clients by using decades of private sector experience tailored to the following areas;

• Development Sales Training

Re: “North Carolina Tried to Defend HB 2 in Federal Court. It Didn’t Go Well.
