Re: “Durham City Council Rejects Mayor Bell’s HB 2 Compromise

"Woodard, along with two other senators, filed a bill today that would fully repeal HB 2 as well as a statewide nondiscrimination ordinance. "

Perhaps this sentence could be rewritten to explain that the statewide nondiscrimination ordinance would be enacted under this bill, not repealed?

Re: “An Epilogue for Unexposed Microcinema's Bold, Meaningful Year of Holding Down a Stable Venue for Experimental Film

I'd keep an eye on the Facebook page and expect to see events there as they finish reshuffling, but if they come out with a new website, we'll update.

Re: “After a Weekend Shooting, Neighbors Pressure the Durham City Council to Help Close the Emerald City Ultra Bar and Lounge

Well arent we using alternative facts? Just wow!! I was born and raised on the westend which is the neighboorhood that you are now calling tusk-lakewood. Please stop acting as tho the source of the westends problems are soley Emerald Cities. If im not mistaken & im not, a duke student was murdered near bivins st. A few yrs ago as well as the worker of the corner store on morehead ave as well as the young lady who was strangled in her apt. across from the ymca. Need i go on?. These crimes have occurred within the last 5-10yrs so i as a resident & citzen of Durham do not appreciate the lies in this article. The club is not responsible for how ppl act upon departure & cannot be held accountable & if they are will you enforce the riff raff that leaves the bars weaveing & bobbing in our newely redecorated & unrecognizable downtown area whose behaviors have been the same for years? Does this apply to the Saucy Crab restaurant on 15-501 that was shot up 10 minutes before the EC shooting? How about Wills bistro who had ppl shoot in the air because they were denied entry? Will they be closed as well? I will be screenshotting this & promoting it on my over 100 pages on over 100 social sites since it seems only the persons who have ulterior motives have voices here in this article, i will make sure the ppl who have the westend at heart... sees it all.

Re: “OWASA: Water Is Safe Again

When are you going to apologize and when are you going to tell us what steps going forward you will take to make sure you do not make this mistake again?

Re: “Richard Lloyd Tells a Vision: A Q&A with the Celebrated Guitarist

I stand corrected. The solo is Quine's.

Re: “Richard Lloyd Tells a Vision: A Q&A with the Celebrated Guitarist

Richard Lloyd did play guitar on "Girlfriend," as did Robert Quine. In fact, so did Ivan Julian, and Fred Maher, and Matthew Sweet: liner notes are really helpful.

Re: “Richard Lloyd Tells a Vision: A Q&A with the Celebrated Guitarist

Nice to see this piece, but it was Robert Quine on "Girlfriend" not RL.

Re: “Activists Demand Removal of Police Officers from Wake County Schools

WHY ARE THERE NO UPDATES ON THIS. IT IS COMMON KNOWLEDGE THAT THE POLICE PERFORMED IN AN INAPPROPRIATE MANNER AND DESERVES TO LOSE HIS JOB. WHY ISN'T ANYONE DOING ANYTHING ABOUT FIRING HIM.

Re: “Activists Demand Removal of Police Officers from Wake County Schools

Are the police gone yet? I want to hear what happened to the police that body slammed Jasmin Darwin. HE SHOULD BE FIRED NO DOUBT AND I WANT HIM FIRED!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: “After a Weekend Shooting, Neighbors Pressure the Durham City Council to Help Close the Emerald City Ultra Bar and Lounge

Residents of the Tuscaloosa-Lakewood Neighborhood are objecting to the presence of murder, gunshots in the middle of the night, and noise. We are not objecting to the presence of people of color in the neighborhood. Our neighborhood is beautifully diverse with people of many races and socioeconomic backgrounds coexisting peacefully and respectfully. We expect that all neighbors, including Emerald City, be respectful and considerate. This weekend's events are unacceptable.

Re: “Scott Crawford Refused to Sell Us a Plate of Food at Crawford and Son

The critic sounds like a self-absorbed adolescent. Why would she publish a non-review? Only to prove that a chef doesn't respect her opinion? Or is it an attention getting piece? Seems unprofessional. Maybe after 10,000 hours of training she will be a better reviewer.

Re: “Scott Crawford Refused to Sell Us a Plate of Food at Crawford and Son

I easily believe Crawford would. There's a lot of ego needed to achieve the self-aggrandizement required at those levels. Those various awards are all about it. Bragging rights brings bucks. Let's not pretend this isn't a straight-up capitalist system here: that kind of talk is what bosses do to their employees to get them to buy into loyalty that won't ever be returned.

Re: “After a Weekend Shooting, Neighbors Pressure the Durham City Council to Help Close the Emerald City Ultra Bar and Lounge

So the complaining resident has lived in the neighborhood for 16 years, and the club has been here for less than three... and the problem is gentrification?

All respect to Umar Muhammad, and hard to deny gentrification is happening in L-T, but it's not just "newer residents" complaining about a "pillar of the neighborhood" in this case. Plenty of neighbors (new and old) are unhappy with the noise.

Re: “Moogfest Announces Nona Hendryx, Moor Mother, SURVIVE, and More in First Wave of Programming

@BrianHowe-- Thank you SO MUCH. I had seen that she was part of the Philip Glass program, but for some reason I thought she wasn't going to be there in person.

Re: “Moogfest Announces Nona Hendryx, Moor Mother, SURVIVE, and More in First Wave of Programming

I mean, if "they" includes "world-renowned futurists, philosophers and visionary artists" I think we can be pretty hopeful about what will unfold under the 2017 themes. Super bummed I missed Laurie Anderson last year. She never fails to bring incisive perspectives on current issues home, like in a visceral sense.

Re: “Scott Crawford Refused to Sell Us a Plate of Food at Crawford and Son

Also, Crawford's letter posted on his site is spot on. Too many bums want to write about food but have no qualifications to do so. These aren't the seasoned vets who did these reviews professionally and did their homework, these are bloggers who want to be a big fish in a small pond.

Re: “Scott Crawford Refused to Sell Us a Plate of Food at Crawford and Son

It's quite possible that all the hit pieces Grayson Currin did on behalf of the Indy is what will do you in when it comes to reviewing places in the future. It is Crawford's right to decline your seating, you weren't there just to eat like other guests. Buck up already.
