Re: “Doomed Republican Congressional Candidates in Triangle Have Pretty Cool Signs

Logos? Really? What can improve with "representatives" like David Price, who have been in Congress for 30 years already? At this point the more proper term for David Price is ruler. Sue Googe is trying to actually represent her constituents.

Re: “How Much Has HB 2 Cost North Carolina? As Much as $395 Million—and Counting.

WRAL.com estimated that the loss was about $500M, which is less than .001 (1/10 of 1%) of the State Economy.

Re: “Love Wins: Multiple Sclerosis, Cycling, Death, and a Coming-Out Story

This is a lovely article. As a gay man with MS I have often felt overlooked by the MS community and have even called out the magazine of the MS Society for only ever speaking of straight couples. (Surprisingly, they printed my comments.) 400,000 Americans have MS. About 4% of America is gay. There is no correlation between homosexuality and MS. So, having MS and being gay is indeed an uncommon intersection! It makes for a very unique life path.

Re: “GoTriangle Plots Additional Light-Rail Spur to N.C. Central

This light rail is a joke and nothing but a black hole for tax $$. The citizens of Durham/Orange will fight it to the end. The dollars and environmental impact has been studied and published.

You can't lose what you never had. The ACC will lose when it's fans don't leave to the state to view games.

Re: “How Chapel Hill’s “Bicycle Apartments” Became LUX

This article really misses the mark. There are lots of things wrong with some of these new developments, but too little parking is not one of them. Mandatory minimums for parking are worthless and just encourage more car-centric behavior and planning. I'm heartened to hear that this apartment complex has a parking shortage. Indeed, I'd be thrilled if Chapel Hill had a town-wide parking shortage - maybe then we would get some real bike lanes and paths (instead of the worse than useless and idiotically named sharrows), along with a bus system that caters to the broader community beyond UNC.

Re: “Uber Really, Really Doesn’t Pay Very Well, According to a Lawsuit Filed in North Carolina

When Uber starts in markets, they pay well to get drivers to sign up. In my market I made plenty. Then they cut the rate and increased their percentage take. The money dried up. I got another job. But the drivers who continue to do this I'm concerned do not earn enough to take care of their cars. They let things go to long like brakes and mechanical needs. They operate them for 60 hours or more per week to make rent or mortgage or whatever they need to pay for in life. Then the cars go unchecked by city inspectors. It's just not safe. I won't use the service any longer. I know how stressed out these drivers and their cars are.
