Re: “Destination Dix is Poised to Give Raleigh the Urban Park It Finally Deserves

"Hopefully, it will be a place with parking," he says."

Please just establish pedestrian access to downtown. Problem solved.

Re: “The Republican National Convention, Day Two: “Hillary Is a Foreign Agent of the Communist Chinese!”

The republican convention is nothing but an excercise in redundancy..... REPEAT REPEAT....REPEAT.....NO new ideas only the tried and failed ones.

Re: “The Republican National Convention, Day One: “There Will Be an End to the Earth”

The republicans know only one thing to say and that is whatever the corporations have paid them and told them to say....They are parrots for corporate.....That is their whole platform...profits....The republicans like to fight facts with fiction.

Re: “The Republican National Convention, Day One: “There Will Be an End to the Earth”

Lets unpack some of this:

"I don’t think (no kidding) the climate change theory (it is not a theory) is accurate at all. God (who doesn't exist) created (no he didn't) the heavens (define your terms, please) and the earth, and God told us (really? directly?.. bullshit, people wrote down those books and sold you a lie) to have dominion and subdue it (theeeeere we are, this is justification for your bad behavior, now your lunacy makes sense)."

We're all going to roast or drown because of this kind of selfish idiocy. I just hope we manage to stamp it out in those of us who live to wander the postindustrial wasteland.

Re: “Inspiring: This Man Became a U.S. Senator Without Reading the Constitution

Tillis is a strange person. He's concentrated on the military, knows very little about the duties of a U.S. Senator but would prefer that only white property owners vote. I suppose this week he is cheering on Trump.

Re: “The Republican National Convention, Day One: “There Will Be an End to the Earth”

This post offers great background information and current perspective on many Republicans approach to the environment. They, like everyone, want clean air and clean water, but they have OD'd on all the threats that have been revealed over the decades since the passage of the Clean Air and Water Acts. They fail to see the connections. Or they believe that God is in control of larger forces like climate. I don't know how you argue with that other than to say, "just wait."

Re: “Those Kids HB 2 Is Supposed to Protect? They Don’t Want Your Protection.

Sanctioned or not sanctioned it was going on-and the staff is responsible for knowing, just like in schools all across America. Kids will do what they will, but adults should be their with the wisdom that even the smartest teen can't have.

Democracy died with such a quiet whimper that most people didn't even notice its passing.

Re: “After 15 years, Chapel Hill is still trying to get a grip on its housing problem

moved from NYC to chapel hill in 2014 after it was suggested to me that it was a good place for a single mother to raise a child.

I Stayed 1 year and left.

from the roached out apartments living next door to illegal mexicans, to the idiotic traffic on fordham blvd by manning drive(you don't put a traffic light at the bottom of a hill that's DOT 101),to the sky high rent prices for tiny 2 bedrooms. in cramped cookie cutter apartment communities.

They also like to charge for water and garbage down here. Never heard of that and never paid for my own water renting in NYC in the past 25 years. (people who own homes pay for water/landlords pay for the renters water and garbage in NYC)

i had to move back to NYC to save money and my sanity (no joke)

never would i recommend chapel hill/durham/raleigh to anyone not even my worst enemy.

if you were not born here or went to Duke/UNC they don't want you here. and will treat you as such

Re: “This Durham 'Day of Rage' Rumor Is a Bunch of Fearmongering

@ladylaw:

"I was quoting from an email sent out by DCSO to courthouse employees"

Actually, you didn't quote anything. Why don't you?

Durham seems to have survived last night without incident, amazingly enough.

"Why would I make this up??"

Who knows? One possibility: you're a flying monkey for Trump and are doing this for the exact same reason Trump lied about the "moment of silence" for the Dallas shooter.

Re: “North Carolina’s Progressive History and the Neo-Carpetbaggers Putting It in the Rearview

Thank you. I fight everyday for a sense of history of what NC was and what it has become. Most people know nothing or very little of its progressive history, just putting it unfairly in with the rest of the southern states. I know from my family history, how much we fought for the progressive state NC was and will continue to, until I die. Lucia Blount Safran Messina.

Re: “Embark on a Timely Voyage Into Immigration Issues in I Wish You a Boat

Four of our friends accompanied us to this production. We have seen other Wendy Ward productions and loved them all but this one takes the cake! The settings, the costumes, and the fine acting made this a mesmerizing experience. What stunned me most of all was the facility with which the actors spoke in foreign tongues, most notably Polish! Incredibly well done. Wendy is a talented producer and director with great insight into her characters and the story.

Re: “Those Kids HB 2 Is Supposed to Protect? They Don’t Want Your Protection.

Dumite, the club has not existed for years. It was a relatively short-lived phenomenon. The administration did not condone and was clear about not permitting the activity as the article states. The fact that teenagers may have continued an activity for a period time not sanctioned by school officials is not unique to high schools in America.

Re: “This Durham 'Day of Rage' Rumor Is a Bunch of Fearmongering

@ladylaw: you're citing an email that no one mentions anywhere else in local media that I can find (explosive devices stashed in and around government buildings is generally considered newsworthy) and your account was created the day you started posting this stuff. Please forgive us if we regard your claims as bullshit pending independent verification.
