Re: “Will the ELF, from Durham-based Organic Transit, save the planet?

Jiminy StAck--Great to hear about your Elf. However, can you please elaborate on how with the Elf's 14 mile range you go "20-30 mile trips and commute 22 miles" Are you peddling hard, running out of juice, stopping to recharge?? SUP with all that?
Thanks for info.

Re: “Duke and UNC have lost their spine

As a recent graduate of Duke, it seems necessary to point out that many religious life groups meet in the basement of Duke Chapel, including the Catholic organization, numerous protestant groups, and the Muslim Life group. The tone you treat it with in this article implies that being relegated to the basement is a form of oppression, which is far from the truth.

Re: “Chapel Hill Transit considers charging fares

There is no such thing as free bus ride just as there is no such thing as a free lunch. The only question is: who pays? The person who directly benefits or some other entity. Or maybe you can split it if that suits everyone.

Chapel Hill....choose wisely.

Re: “One Triangle record store plans to close, but the rest are enjoying a surprising— and, they say, sustainable—renaissance

Really glad that record store in the Triangle are thriving (even if the wonderful Offbeat is unfortunately closing). I live in the UK but love my trips to the Triangle's enviable selection of record stores - Bull City and Schollkids in particular always have an excellent selection to get stuck into. Keep it up folks.

Re: “The Red Menace: Civitas Unveils "Vast Left-Wing Activist Network"

The best part of Mapping The Left is the "Tips" page, where you can do their work for them by dropping the dime on a hapless Pinko Commie. Next up is the House Committee on Un-North Cackalackian Activities.

Re: “The Frontier launches new way of working at Research Triangle Park

What is this article trying to say? That somehow one of the buildings on Park Office Drive is somehow different from the other buildings on Park Office Drive?

Re: “Daniel Benjamin provides extraordinary, everyday indulgences at lucettegrace

Is "a small town in Indiana" a euphemism for "the Chicago suburbs?"

Re: “Duke and UNC have lost their spine

As for how the conservatives value the UNC system, state support for the 17 campuses is down almost 25 percent over the past seven years. That's a calculation taking into account inflation and population growth. In 2007-8, when Democrats ran the state (and the last budget before the Great Recession hit), state funding for the UNC system was $2.62 billion. Seven years later, and five years into Republican control of the state, the budget is slightly less than $2.6 billion. Not a big cut on its fact, but consider that the state's population is up 10 percent and inflation 14 percent since then.

Just to keep support for UNC institutions at pre-recession levels, the budget should be some $650 million more.

Not everything's about dollars, but I think there's abundant evidence that Art Pope's Republicans want fewer students educated at UNC, and fewer courses that challenge their minds -- and hearts.

Mapping the Left is a major step forward in understanding how richly endowed the rabid left is, and how dangerous they are to the concept of personal liberty.

Just FYI, the American Postal Workers Union does not represent letter carriers. That would be the National Association of Letter Carriers and the National Rural Letter Carrier Association. APWU represents clerks.

Re: “The Boot needs to tighten its execution, but you can cobble together a fine meal of Italian basics

I enjoyed an excellent meal at The Boot, one of the best I've had in some time. And I couldn't believe how affordable it was. Definitely one of my favorite places to eat in Durham now.
