Re: “Is the Durham GOP’s New Headquarters Violating Zoning Laws?

Hapless? As in unlucky? I live on this block, so I think I know what the neighborhood wants.

Re: “Someone at the DNC Called Our Coward Governor a "Moronic Little Bigot," Get the Tissues

@vidvis - We're in agreement that this was part of it, I covered that aspect for our HB 2 issue a few weeks back; maybe "solely" wasn't the right word to use here. But I think it is telling that they (half-assedly) restored the state cause of action at the end of the session, but didn't touch any of the anti-LGBT parts of this bill.

This is the HB 2 breakdown I wrote, for reference. http://www.indyweek.com/indyweek/heres-wha…

Adopter,

You ignore that the house has been vacant for three years. And nothing in the article indicates what the neighbors think.

Both your post and the article are hapless.

Re: “Someone at the DNC Called Our Coward Governor a "Moronic Little Bigot," Get the Tissues

A slight disagreement; I believe HB-2 was primarily meant to curtail worker's rights. The moronic bigotry was a pretext to justify the bill and to distract and appease the moronic bigots that make up our moronic (and bigoted) Governor's voting base. I don't know that this moronic bigot hates the LGBT community, just that he's willing to use prejudice against them to further other goals. He's a bigot of convenience. The effect is, of course, the same.

Re: “Is the Durham GOP’s New Headquarters Violating Zoning Laws?

The neighborhood wants a family to live there, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It is a house and is not meant to be an office. The neighborhood doesn't want dangerous parking or the irritation of being hounded for the office hours. It would be the same if it was an office for the best non-profit in the world. It does not fit in a residential neighborhood.

Re: “Is the Durham GOP’s New Headquarters Violating Zoning Laws?

What I would like to know truthfully is if the GOP HQ was a Democratic HQ if this would have even been in the INDY? I doubt it. Most times when the right does something it is seen with scrutiny and fear however when stuff happens in my fair Durham and the GOP does not show up they are seen as absentee. Durham leftist cannot have it both ways. The GOP is visible and vibrant in Durham maybe not to the extent as it should be but there are people here in Durham with conservative values that believe in limited government and freedom. Stop the persecution, start the inclusion.

Perhaps you "skipped a few steps" in writing this article—like finding an issue that matters.

Re: “Is the Durham GOP’s New Headquarters Violating Zoning Laws?

This is news?? It would be more interesting if it delved into the GOP plans and how the neighborhood reacts that the house is no longer vacant. The paperwork allegation asound pretty trivial.

Re: “Pit Bulls May or May Not Be Dangerous. But Bronwen Dickey Can Attest That Writing About Them Definitely Is.

Carolyn,
Liquid shampoo was invented in 1927. Shampoo was invented in 1898 as a water-soluble powder. And anyway if there was a shampoo ad between 1927 and 1930, then that is within range.

But your comment about shampoo was just plain silly, unlike your other assertions about pit bulls, which are uninformed, unhelpful and downright harmful.

Re: “In Durham, Rich Neighborhoods Have Plenty of Trees. Poor Neighborhoods, Not So Much

The children and tennants of Franklin Village are destroying their own trees. I witnessed a group of children literally rip down a small tree that had recently been planted and another tree that had been hit was stuck under a car parked in Franklin Village. A total of 5 trees out there have been lost since planting just 2 years ago or less. My Latino neighbors who rent, cook outdoors very often and routinely cut down branches and entire trees to fuel their fires. After 2 years, they are now driving elsewhere to cut their wood. Who knows where, but im sure its in Durham!I agree that there should be more planting in these areas mentioned, but Im betting some portion of the population in those areas could care less. The people that appear to care have gardens and potted plants in these neighborhoods, but wont plant a tree on their own?
