Re: “Suicide apparent in shooting death of son of pro-gun rights N.C. Rep.

Rep Pittman is a sad excuse for a 'man'.

I am sorry that his son was troubled, and despondent.

Re: “N.C. Representative Larry Pittman Calls Abraham Lincoln the “Same Sort [of] Tyrant” as Hitler and We Are Not Even Making That Up

There were 620,000 casualties, not 800,000.

The Confederates fired the first shot of the war on Fort Sumpter. Jefferson Davis is responsible for 800,000 deaths

Radical Christian Terrorism. Pittman spews hate when making laws. I blame him for his son's suicide. I am sure pittman did not approve of his son's interest in atheism and same-sex marriage.

Re: “The Durham-Orange Light Rail Now Costs More Than $3 Billion, and Durham Will Have to Pay More of It

First, $3.3 billion is too much for a 17 mile light rail line. It parallels an existing railroad. There are no major engineering challenges. Other US cities have built similar light rail lines for $1 billion, European cities have built similar light rail lines for more like $300 million.

Second, the Triangle area is very low density and not likely to generate much transit ridership besides low-income people and students. This project would be of questionable value at $1 billion. It is certainly not worthwhile at $3.3 billion. Kill it and spend the money on better bus service instead.

Re: “House ABC Committee Hears Beer-Cap Arguments

How does the comment about "preventing overly aggressive marketing" even make sense? By far, the most aggressive marketers are the Big 3 (Miller-Bud-Coors) who are the major patrons of the Wholesalers. They flood the airwaves with advertising. Also, being forced to use a distributor doesn't prevent a Craft Beer from marketing itself however it wants --- it just means that these small businesspeople have less revenue to grow and compete.

Re: “Durham Is North Carolina’s Hippest City, According to Vogue, Which Would Definitely Know These Things

A rising tide does not float all boats. Downtown has gentrified at the expense of the working class people who built it and the middle class people who once owned its stores and restaurants. For me, living in the "new Durham" feels like being married for 54 years to a town that's suddenly declared itself transurban, undergone hasty surgery, and started bringing home a lot of people who are convinced they're way cooler than I am.

Re: “Full Frame: Dina Is Earning Acclaim for Its Portrait of Love and Autism. But Is It Illuminating or Exploitative?

I haven't seen the movie, so I won't comment on the reading of the documentary. Just want to say that according to many autistic self-advocacy groups and neurodiversity models of disability, wishing for an alternative film that "emphasizes" a figure's "triumph over the adversities" of autism has its own problems. This wish has its roots in the medical model of disability which treats cognitive difference as disease and therefore something to be fixed and a moral model which treats disability as something an individual can "triumph over." Both models shield autism from understanding by the general populace and perpetuate the notion that geneticists and individual gumption are all that's needed when what is really lacking is education of the non autistic and the funding of social programs for the disabled.

BTW, I see that Indy Week expresses the right to remove comments that include ad hominem attacks. Do you remove blogs that include them as well? Oh the irony.

Re: “Durham Is North Carolina’s Hippest City, According to Vogue, Which Would Definitely Know These Things

My problem with these kind of articles is how superficial they are. A great food scene is undoubtedly correlated with being a "hip" city, but is it really the reason why, Vogue? Journalists who want to proclaim Durham the next "it" town should actually spend more than a weekend, talk to the people who live here, and try to look past the restaurants and places to get a drink. Then they might actually start to figure out why Durham is so awesome and what caused those places to crop up to begin with.
