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.

Thanks for the correction, Dustin. The playbill listed the wrong actor in the role.

Re: “Chris Tucker is alive and doing very well

This dude below ADAM BUSUTTIL sayin "I love Chris Rock"

It's an article about Chris Tucker. Black people all look the same to you? Was Michael Jackson from the movie Space Jam and one of the best basketball players ever?

Re: “Host D.G. Martin's enthusiasm and curiosity drive UNC-TV program North Carolina Bookwatch

Mr. Martin, your show has entertained and been instructive since 2013. Today, may I offer two books, Europe in Low about two college grads touring Europe on bicycles following the Armistice in the Great War (published by under Samantha Narelle Kirkland) and my latest, an adventure on the sea inspired by the loss of the Titanic whereby the heroes develop an unsinkable hull. This is a completed work, but I have delayed seeking publication until my illustrations are rendered more artfully than are my mere line drawings. May I send you the manuscript for consideration for your show, or forward a copy of Europe in Low? I've always loved your style of sitting back and letting the author tell her story! Your station already has a copy of The Thread of Life Is Thin, a DVD I made in 2005 following the destruction of Hurricane Ivan in my home county, Macon. Feel free to call for further info, 828-524-0261. Sorry I missed you at Yale; I was an undergrad, Class of 1967, then Army CE. Sincerely, Narelle

Re: “Though Durham’s Nice Price Books Is Gone, There’s Cause for Hope as Well as Despair

The article seems to mention that the Nice Price bookstore owner also bought the building. So we know who to blame for a Papa Johns. While people were wringing their hands about the bookstore closing why were they not talking to Barry about selling/leasing to a better business??? Boggles the mind. I guess its easier to complain after the fact than do the hard work before and put your money where your mouth is.

Also a gentle reminder about the history of the Mariott. That land had a proposed bed and breakfast that would have been much mich smaller, more in line with the neighborhood, and preserved the historical building. But neighbors came out against it and killed it. You reap what you sow with nibyism.

Re: “Though Durham’s Nice Price Books Is Gone, There’s Cause for Hope as Well as Despair

Very fond memories of this building. My father operated the Deli New York New York in that space when we first moved to Durham. I remember running the register and meeting all the neighborhood regulars. Sad that just another papa johns is going in that space.

Re: “What Kind of City is “Durm,” Anyway? Runaway Ventures an Answer With Its New Downtown Store

Wow, really well-said. Love the reflection on Durham's identity and how what-it-was and what-it-is are colliding. I feel the same way about learning how to cope with my hometown changing so much.

Re: “Apocalypse How? Carrboro’s Phil Torres on Nanobots, Biotech, A.I., and Other Onrushing Threats to Our Species

ProudlyUnaffiliated: As someone who’s studied the subject, I agree with NASA, the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists, the AAAS, the American Geophysical Union, AMA, the American Meteorological Society, the American Physical Society, the Geological Society of America, the IPCC, and *every other* evidence-based institution around the world that deals with climate-related phenomena: climate change is a clear and present danger that will seriously exacerbate existing geopolitical struggles and introduce brand new conflicts in the future, as societies are pushed to the brink. Ask yourself: which is more probable, that the overwhelming heaps of empirically verifiable evidence really do support the anthropogenic climate change model, OR that hundreds of thousands of scientists from South Africa to China, France to Canada, Brazil to Switzerland, India to Norway, along with every evidence-based institution in the world are all coordinating in some sort of global conspiracy to get rich, or gain global control? As someone with a foot in the field itself, and who values epistemology over all else, I can assure you that climate change is both real and anthropogenic. Also: the world is spherical, not flat, and Obama was born in the US, not Kenya. -- Phil

Good topic. I wonder how he views anthropogenic climate catastrophe global warming sky is falling scam. There has always been good money to be made in selling end-of-the-world schemes to an ignorant and fearful public.

Re: “Apocalypse How? Carrboro’s Phil Torres on Nanobots, Biotech, A.I., and Other Onrushing Threats to Our Species


Humans (a very few of them) are too smart for their own good. The rest are too stupid to realize what's going on. This is a bad combination. It's bad enough we have people believing in the Rapture. They make terrible choices about everything thinking they are not going to live to see the fruition of any careful logical plans. Now even smart people may adopt this dangerous attitude in that global warming and/or evil nanobots make longevity unlikely. Well, I guess it's already happening with the advent of Donald Trump and other such poorly thought out phenomenon like school vouchers.
