Re: “The Morning Roundup: GOP Emails, Confiscated Guns, and Another McCrory Ad

From the original article "We have more than 10 million people a year traveling through the airport, 30,000 people a day passing through here," Roughly 7 million travelers and 36 weapons found. That you would be in the airport at the same time as one of these weapons is way less than your chance of being struck by lightning. Also a statement in the original article "Airport officials say the people who tried to bring the weapons through explained to officers they either forgot or didn't realize they were carrying." What??? That they would use these excuses tells me they should never have been carrying in the first place. I can't imagine how that is possible.

Re: “It's time to rise up against voter suppression by Republicans

Your unnecessarily lengthy spiel in defense of Republicans suppressing votes, doesn't seem to be needed, as like you said, even after the Democrats passed legislations to make voting easier, Republicans won across the state. So, what are you so afraid of?

Re: “Assessing the First Outing—and the Future—of the Women's Theatre Festival

I appreciate this honest and realistic assessment of WTF 2016, and I applaud the bravery and audacity of Ashley Popio and all of the WTF collaborators for putting on the festival knowing that it was never going to be perfect. I am so glad we did not wait. I am so glad we did not try to find the right time. I am so glad we went for it.

Re: “Assessing the First Outing—and the Future—of the Women's Theatre Festival

Succeed or fail, Popio and all the women and allies who made WTF happen deserve major kudos. This has been long overdue and sorely needed in our theatrical community -- and beyond. Looking forward to seeing its continued growth and strength.

So glad to see Edgerton's painting exhibited and appreciated. He is a North Carolina living treasure.

Voters are already offered free transportation and a free ID card. What more do people want? I have an idea, how about a wake up call? Darn GOP doesn't offer wake up calls!

Re: “Paperhand Puppet Intervention’s The Beautiful Beast Makes Merry With Monsters of Myth and Memory

I saw this show in Chapel Hills. This was the first time I had seen a Paperhand's show. It was magnificent. The music produced and performed by Jennifer Curtis and the band took it beyond the next level.

I loved this performance. It was dark, very funny and incredibly entertaining.

Re: “Where to Find Black-Owned Restaurants in The Triangle

Watkins Grill is not black-owned; neither is the Barbecue Lodge. Apparently, the Indy reporter didn't do her homework.

Re: “Wake County Judge Michael Denning: 'China Wouldn't Be So Bad If It Weren't for All the Chinese'

Judge Michael Denning is the worst Judge. Not only does he do favors for his friends, he stated the discriminatory comment of "China wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't for all the Chinese." How stupid does he think the people of NC are that they would ever want this clown in the Superior Court. He supports the horrible HB2 and has fundraisers with that loser McCrory. NC deserves good judges and fair judges. Judge Michael Denning needs to be impeached ASAP!!!

Re: “Golden Belt Granted a Historic Designation over the Durham Rescue Mission’s Objections

After listening to all the proponents and opponents of the DRM's plans, I still don't understand why the Council (under pressure by Preservation) could not have let the DRM have their lots to do what they wanted. They could easily have been excluded from the historic districting. It appears that many "newcomers" to the community have decided they don't want the "likes" of the people that use the Mission around their "neighborhood". For all the newbies, who was there first? The fact that property values are increasing anyway is not conducive to "affordable" housing as Preservation touts. Also, this is a high crime-ridden area (reason for the Mission being there in the first place), so maybe cleaning up the neighborhood before blaming the Mission's people would be a better start.

Re: “Koumi’s Fish Sauce Wings Soar Above the Usual Hibachi Fare

I _love_ this place -- great food and very good service!

I know the building was an Italian restaurant before it was Koumi. Don't know if any fast food places had been in it, but I wouldn't doubt it.

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

The problem that I see with this is that he is deducting things against his wage that aren't straight deductions. Like car lease. He is going to have that no matter what job he has. We all do. I don't deduct my car payments from my income and then complain that my company isn't paying for it - neither should these guys. And if they actually leased the cars just so they could become Uber drivers that was their decision not Ubers so Uber shouldn't be expected to pay their leases.

Re: “Durham Public Schools Takes Small Steps Forward Where Giant Leaps Are Needed

If you look at the performance data by race in Durham Public Schools it's pretty stark. It would be nice if the state broke out data by economics as well as race and gender. The intersections at play in many DPS kids lives greatly impact their school readiness, focus, and testing outcomes.
