I hope this is a vile and unfounded rumor. If it's true however, I'd love to see a proactive series of full page ads run in Indyweek, the Observer and other major papers before the special session with a huge headline that says, "MOLESTERS OF DEMOCRACY?" "PLEASE DON'T DIRTY Lady Liberty" followed by photos of members of the Republican legislature with captions containing their names and public email addresses. If this is true they need to be publicly embarrassed beforehand.

Why is the Nov.9th puzzle not uploading as a larger puzzle?
Shame on Judge Christine Walczyk of the Wake County Courts!! She is the worst!! I have been present in a courtroom with Judge Walczyk as the Judge. I was not the Plaintiff or Defendant. Judge Walczyk stated to one of the litigants that it was exhausting for her to listen to her present her case (she was a pro se litigant). Judge Walczyk then laughed at the litigant present her case and laughed with opposing counsel. Walczyk frequently brought up Judge Michael Denning whom was already removed off of the case from the Chief District Judge for good cause shown. This is the Judge Michael Denning whom stated "China wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't for all of the Chinese." He should be impeached as a Judge for his discriminatory comment that he made during a court case as heard on the audio recording produced from the Court. Walczyk also expressed anger at one of the litigants for filing Requests for Reassignments against her. Judge Walczyk stated in her questionnaire that "The cost of litigation is also a growing concern. With the economic crisis looming, litigants are often choosing to represent themselves rather than hire attorneys. As judges, we have to ensure that the court system works for everyone, and that we minimize the disadvantages to individuals choosing to handle their own legal matters." I witnessed Judge Walczyk laughing at a pro se litigant, allowed the opposing counsel to violate so many different Rules of Civil Procedure and local rules. The litigant whom represented herself pro se proved to Walczyk how the opposing counsel violated many different Rules of Civil Procedure and Walczyk's reply to that was it's "water under the bridge." Obviously, Walczyk is not capable of being a fair or impartial Judge. She had the audacity to state to a pro se litigant that it was exhausting for her (Walczyk) to even listen to the litigant present her case. Walczyk referred to the litigant as a joke and laughed frequently at her. Rude and abusive treatment by a Judge to one party in a case is against the Judicial Code of Conduct. It is all on the audio recording that is produced by the Wake County Courts. That is not the way a pro se litigant should be treated by a Judge. The other litigant in the Court testified to choosing to violate the order, yet Walczyk ignored that. Judge Walczyk is truly the worst Judge. Her campaign manager is a lawyer in the Wake County Courts. I heard a witness testify in front of Walczyk to definitely not stating something about a litigant, yet Walczyk for her bias in favor of the other party, lied and stated that the witness stated something he did not. Yet, there is an audio recording from the court proving the witness testified before Walczyk stating he did not make the statement. Walczyk has stopped following the rules of the Court. Walczyk has had rude and abusive treatment for one of the litigants in the case and complete favortism for the other litigant where even when the litigant admits while testifying in front of her that he chose to violate the order, STILL Walczyk will not find him in Contempt of Court. The litigant's attorney has violated many rules of Civil Procedure yet Walczyk's response to the attorney violating the rules is it's "water under the bridge." Walczyk needs to follow the law, yet she refuse to as she does not follow the Judicial Code of Conduct. Walczyk stated judges are supposed to be "temperate", yet Walczyk is out of control on the court produced audio recording making fun of a pro se litigant trying to present her case.
Indy Week - do you still feel as smug now about your Hillary endorsement? I blame you and the legions like you for this. You not only condoned corruption in the Democratic Party, but you laughed it off. It had real consequences.

Where is the Nov 9 crossword?
Where's this week's puzzle?
Who are Jackson Farming Company's customers? Seems like this is the only place to apply pressure.
I know how many feel. I live between Benson and Highway 210. The only internet available, except satellite, is CenturyLink. Our speed is 3mbs download. Not only that, our phone service is in and out thus our internet service. Time Warner won't even try to get us their service. Our CL technician lives across the street from a new upscale subdivision. He has 3mbs and the neighbors have 100mbs. Go figure that one out. Getting higher speeds isn't that expensive, but there is no incentive for CL to upgrade their system or for Time Warner to lay the cable for theirs. Complaints are ignored and I can just about hear the service representatives snickering over the phone.
Respectfully, I don't see what the point of this article is. It neatly summarizes this year while putting five dollar words behind everything everyone already knows without providing any deeper insight. You ponder potential change and solutions to our problems, but the ideas are once again obvious, brief, and weak at best. You even conclude that none of them will happen. I'm just left thinking, "Yes, and...?"
What are you trying to do for the reader that they can't already conclude for themselves from a few Google searches? I honestly would like to know because clearly I'm missing something, but want to remain an interested reader.
Otherwise, keep up the good work.
Winning... I hope this string of victories continue...
A reasonable person would find much to agree in what you wrote but one passage stood out for me
"A major political party, overtaken by uncompromising zealots, has made unbridled, unprecedented obstructionism its central organizing principle and fealty to the gun lobby and unfettered corporate greed its number one focus. "
One could honestly say that you provide no differentiation between the Democrats and the Republicans based on the one small part alone. I do not mean to cherry pick here but merely to point out that you can't really point out the Perils of Trumpism without also indicting the naked ambition of the Clinton Crime family and their retinue of enablers and conspirators.
It was no secret that the Republican National Committee did not want Donald Trump and was actively colluding against him. The Democrats, however , made a sham of the process of pretending to countenance the challenge of Senator Sanders while secretly colluding with the Clinton campaign the entire time. That broke a trust that I think many Sanders supporters could not abide.
But, in the interest of moving forward, I would like to make a gesture of concession to you. If we can agree that we think that both candidates are a$$holes then I think we can build on that. :)
Thanks for being there. You will be missed.
Well everyone, consider this. Judge Denning lived in China and has a personal perspective, how many of you can claim the same pedigree? I'll guess few to none.
Kenneth, you express so well the frustration most of us feel. For you to have had the courage, the self control to attend the rally speaks volumes of your fine character. It has been a ghastly time, a growing malignancy in our country. I believe that truth, honor, and substance will prevail. And then the reunification of our brothers and sisters will begin.
Miss Molly sounds awesome and I hope to experience a session with her soon.
This is bizarre! Of all the years I've lived in Durham and Raleigh, I've never heard of anything so ridiculous! I work at Real Estate By Design in Durham and someone once left a flyer for a cat washing service (LOL), which I thought was crazy enough, but this takes the cake!

welp, that's exactly the same map I planned to pick (save for making NE all red and ME all blue), so no fun in that!
so does this mean he didn't take the time to fill out the questionnaire like all the other candidates? he just sent his campaign flyer?
