Re: “Plate Expectations

If the headline had been: "Is Scott Crawford Better Off Without Standard Food"? The answer would have been a resounding "YES!" I dined often at Standard when Crawford was there because the food was the best in Raleigh and the service and staff were spot on! I've dined once at Standard since it reopened sans Crawford. Once was enough. The food was good but not memorable. However, what was memorable was the bar service. It was deplorable. Last night, I dined for the 4th time at Crawford and Son. As usual, the food was excellent and, as usual, the service was spot on.

Re: “How the Religious Right Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Libertine Adulterer Donald Trump

. . .Countless churches should lose their tax-exempt status and / or be prohibited from federal programs because their church pastors and leaders (intentionally or not) refuse to provide economic opportunities to some of the very people who are being used as commodity for federal dollars. Also, (via BOGUS NONPROFITS) too many church leaders and pastors are involved in: deceptive trade practices / undisclosed identity-of-interest relationships, transactions, and collusion / federal contract procurement non-compliance / illegal nepotism / catching the poor (Psalms 10:9) / and unlawfully refusing to extend jobs to people in need instead of creating careers for their families and friends. Hocus-Pocus Religion, Politicized Churches and Federally-Funded Oppression @


. . . federal programs and grants awarded to churches for addressing social poverty, and other maladies are not intended for accomplishing sealed and rigged bidding, and non-competitive businesses and careers for pastors families. Reiteratively, federal programs and funding are not to be transformed into private, family-owned church companies. Federal procurement statutes require government funding recipients to take affirmative steps to give economic opportunities to individual and small businesses.

Re: “Plate Expectations

Emma Laperruque and your response to this situation have been very unprofessional. Seeing the way both your organization and she has handled this has made me lose all trust in anything Indy-week publishes about a restaurant. She is unqualified and your display of Facebook comments clearly show why she was put in that position, YOU are unqualified too. This looks like a bunch of teenagers trying to cyberbully one of the popular kids. Grow up. Be professional. This isn't a college newspaper.
