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

Um. For one thing, you don't "plant" Molotov cocktails.

"Intel units," lol.

Trying to make people afraid with totally made-up crap is pretty despicable, even when it's as lame and transparent as this.

Proof or is it true because it's on the Internet?

Re: “HB 2: How Did We Get Here?

The best part of the Indy this week were all the ads - brilliant, poignant and clever ads that businesses took out against HB2.

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

Law enforcement actually found molotov cocktails planted in Durham today near a probation office and identified someone scouting security cameras around the Durham County Courthouse. Intel units also indicated they have received info that molotov cocktails will be placed at strategic locations in downtown Durham. Molotov cocktails were also planted by the Fayetteville Courthouse today. So I don't think "Ignoring It," is the best advice.

Re: “Wake County Judge Michael Denning: 'China Wouldn't Be So Bad If It Weren't for All the Chinese'

Judge Michael Denning represents everything a Judge should NOT be. His discriminatory comment of "China wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't for all the Chinese" proves he should NOT be a Judge. He certainly should never be a Superior Court Judge!! Judges are supposed to be able to be trusted, yet Judge Denning made a discriminatory comment.

There should be no discriminatory comments made by anyone. Judge Denning should resign as a Judge as he made a discriminatory comment during a court hearing!! He shouldn't even be running for Superior Court Judge.

Re: “With Donald Trump Leading the GOP, N.C. Dems See an Opening

Nice talk and all, but the NC Dems aren't even fielding candidates in 1/4 of the state legislative races.

Re: “Duke Energy's Merger With Piedmont Natural Gas Goes Before N.C. Utilities Commission Next Week

You're right Randy, I should have called you for comment. I incorporated your remarks into the blog post.

Re: “Duke Energy's Merger With Piedmont Natural Gas Goes Before N.C. Utilities Commission Next Week

I work at Duke Energy and the Indy used to call me for a comment. Oh well!

Duke Energy has 35 solar farms in NC. The state is #3 in the nation for solar power. The pace of new solar in NC is second only to California.

The company's overall energy capacity mix right now is 4.5% wind and solar and 7.8% renewable hydro.

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

Tolerance doesn't mean a lack of boundaries and using the same shower and locker room is different than nude bobsledding and shower games between children. I am totally opposed to HB2 and also the lack of responsible leadership shown at Cary Academy. It is a huge liability to allow such conduct and students can hold "shower club" outside of school and their parents can sponsor it if they want their child to participate! Everyone should be welcome to belong and be appreciated for whomever they are, but that doesn't mean adults turn a blind eye to being responsible. Why would any teacher care what it "looks like" rather than the issue of what is going on? Abigail did a great job writing this piece and her open mindedness is to be applauded, but the school 's behavior is very troubling.

Re: “Who Is Tim Moore Suing?

There're fixing to be skeletons falling out of NCGOP and Republican NCGA members' closets all over the place (and maybe some coming out of the closet, too). It'll be like a bunch of drunk guys falling out of a cab.

Re: “Why Aqua NC customers are furious about their service

I live in New Jersey and now have Aqua Water scamming our Spartan Village community. I am disabled and live alone but my water and sewer charges with Aqua keep rising. This month it was $99 and says I used 143 gallons of water. Hoaw the heck can a disabled woman living alone use an average of 145 gallons of water daily~????? We are furious with these outrageous monthly charges. My son is trying to report them to NBC TV channel troubleshooters.

Re: “New Details Emerge About Controversial Durham Drug Bust

Wow if police have a warrant in hand they must go serve it and remain professional and calm , it is not the job of the home owner to be a professional at work , police this is nothing personal why not just do your job , raising all hell does not make your instructions more understanding. I wish police could calm down and stop acting like they are in war and being fired on from all directions , OK we are from so and so PD we do have a warrant and due to unfortunate allegations we must search the home but 1st let's get the children calm and the adults relaxed and understand that this is our job and if we find nothing there will be no charges , if we must arrest anyone they will be treated with professionalism and took to a magistrate judge to receive a bond . Thanks for your understanding in this matter we just have a job to do and this is nothing personal to us , it maybe personal to the community but there not professional law enforcement , it would make more since if a community member assaulted a weed dealer , DUE PROCESS please .

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

The real question is what the hell are the faculty thinking and how has the school not been sued? It has nothing to do with male bonding, but supervision, direction and avoiding a situation that is begging for some unfortunate incident or misunderstanding to wreak havoc. It is fascinating that there are posters for the club that no adult seemed to address for years and when one meekly did so they were ignored. Tolerance doesn't have to be taught by nude bobsledding in school. Seriously...

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

It's the Abigail who wrote this btw--and for those wondering what the hypothesis is, it's basically that Gen Z is definitely left of center--but dismantling the gender binary is not necessarily on the collective mind so much as redefining masculinity. The proof would be in the interviews with the boys, Schwalbe and Jae especially, as ze is very attuned to the degree of progressivism Gen Z is willing to offer.

Re: “The Durham-Orange County Light Rail Line Is on the Ropes Again. That Might Be a Good Thing.

Mr Cabanas, Thank you for publishing the facts and refuting the emotional and misleading cut and paste propaganda on LRT from Mr. Baker. It really is too bad that there is such an emotional attachment to an inefficent transit mode whose time has past.
