Re: “Soup for You: Welcome to DISH, the INDY’s Tri-Annual Food Special

Matzo Ball Soup at Lucky's Deli! I never go that there aren't people around me eating it. And, I have heard it sparks lots of discussion and comparisons.. "Do your Matzo balls float or sink?...They're right in the middle!"
Being a Southerner, I have yet to try it, but have heard it cures all ills. It's on my bucket list.

Re: “Soup for You: Welcome to DISH, the INDY’s Tri-Annual Food Special

Y'all totally missed the mark by not including Short Winter Soups in this spread. They've been around for 5-6 years, quietly serving up soups alongside Chicken Bridge Bakery bread to folks around the triangle through their (very hard to get into) soup subscriptions. Check 'em out.

Re: “How North Carolina Does Brunswick Stew Right

Re: “Hope Tyler’s Little Girl Became a Boy, and She Became an Activist

Your son is exceptionally lucky to have you as a parent.

The tragedy of Leelah Alcorn and of all the Leelah Alcorns in North Carolina and around the world should haunt those who pass hate laws like HB2...sadly they seem to ignore the overwhelming evidence that acceptance and love are the only appropriate responses to transgender children.

Instead they peddle fear - unreasoning, unfounded fear. And I say that as a member of my local school board's Financial Advisory Committee, someone very familiar with the right and wrong way a school system can deal with transgender students.

Last year I was approached by a local school official asking for help with a bathroom policy. I suggested that they not draft one and simply let things move on their own, because an official policy, something that might attract controversy, just isn't needed.

There are four transgender students in our system right now (out of just below 4000 total students). They are not the first transgender students and they won't be the last.

And in the 12 years I've been in the district we have had exactly zero issues, complaints or incidents. Instead our local students have thrived and moved on to college, whether transgender or not. And that's the way it should be.

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

Laden, thank you for your comment. It is an uncommon intersection and one that Vicki and I struggled with at times too. Thank you for calling out MS Society Magazine. I hope it causes them to make changes!

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: “How to Navigate Busy City Streets on Two Wheels

Hey Barbara 2:

“Bicyclists usually ride on the right side of the lane, but are entitled to use the full lane…. Drivers wishing to pass a bicyclist may do so only when there is abundant clearance and no oncoming traffic is in the opposing lane. When passing a bicyclist, always remember the bicyclist is entitled to use of the full lane.” – North Carolina Driver’s Handbook, p.95.

Please be safe out there...

Re: “How to Navigate Busy City Streets on Two Wheels

#1 - stay out of the middle of the road with oncoming cars. If you want us to "share the road", perhaps cyclists should get licenses like auto drivers have to. Let them pay their "fair share".
