Re: “The People's Climate March gears up to be the tipping point for climate change

You can pay a little more for energy, or an ever increasing cost for dealing with things like lower crop yields, civil unrest around the world, increasing storm and wild fire damages, disruptions to the ocean food web, etc.

Re: “T-shirt of Slim's owner Van Alston edited by WALTER photographer

Jason, No. 1, I've never received an email from you about the photos you say we used without compensation. The Burning Coal Theatre photos you're referring to came directly from the company. We are checking to see what permissions they have to disseminate the photos for promotional purposes.

No. 2. To clarify for readers, it is the INDY's policy not to substantively alter a photo other than basic toning/cropping. Even in cropping, we cannot change the essence of the photo. We do not add or subtract elements in a photo with the exception of photo illustrations, which are clearly labeled as such. To critique Jason's photo in a bona fide news story falls under fair use for commentary and criticism.

Re: “T-shirt of Slim's owner Van Alston edited by WALTER photographer

Travis is Absolutely correct that this was not an editorial decision on the part of Walter Magazine. I made a decision and maybe it was wrong, maybe it will be inexcusable but it was my fault and not Walter Magazine which was made clear prior to this post by Currin. Hats off to everyone that has never made the wrong decision. We learn and sometimes the hard way, don't remove the word "sucks" from a tee shirt. What people may not know is that I went out of my way to include a photograph in the background to pay quiet homage to a dear friend that Van had recently lost. I hope I didn't alter the integrity of the bar by doing that too. All this coming from a magazine that in another front page story has used two of my images thus far without offering compensation and ignoring my request for compensation. Sincere apologies to all that I've offended by my actions alone.

Re: “T-shirt of Slim's owner Van Alston edited by WALTER photographer

I have been a staff photographer at the N&O for 11 years and I am a frequent contributor to Walter. This was not an editorial decision by the magazine. The freelancer took it upon himself to alter the photograph. Why? I'm not sure... IMO his action is inexcusable. Someone is going to have to pull me off the ceiling.

Re: “A judge says people are acting like "idiots" and a melee erupts in Durham family court

That judge was definitely an asshole. I thought the parents showed incredible restraint by sitting quietly while the judge lectured them like children. The judge has way too much power in that situation. I could see having someone lead out of the courtroom and temporarily detained in an effort to defuse the loss of control. Then again, I understand, whether I like it or not, I always say yes ma'am, no ma'am, yes sir, no sir—or nothing at all. What's the use of saying anything else? The same goes with cops. Quietly comply and your chances of not being harassed or thrown in jail increase tremendously. I don't think there was a racial component here. If any person had talked any smack to a judge, it's off to the bed and breakfast too. I hate the entire system. Why do we have to stand up when a judge enters the room? It's not like he's the Dalai Lama. Anyway, that was a sad situation. No matter how you look at it.

Re: “Hofmann sellers cut new deal

Good article Jane!

One clarification - what I meant to say is that RMS could technically turn around the day after this new agreement has closed, and sell all or part of their stake in Hofmann Forest to Walker Ag Group for the list price that RMS paid plus a $500,000 "finders fee". The reverse scenario would be a better outcome.

The best outcome would be no sale at all, or for a genuine forest conservation easement to be put in place on the entire tract prior to the closing.

What are the Walkers planning on doing with their 24,000 acres? And what will RMS do with their land along US 17? The temptation to develop it will be really strong...

To help us stop this sale and win a better future for Hofmann Forest, please sign our petition here:

Re: “Hopscotch, Night Two: A picnic

The topic is fun and MK is obviously an ornery dude on occasion, but it not like a Mideast conflict is going on here. He obviously has a sense of humor about this (evidenced by his latest t-shirt offering) and in general. We can do the same right back. For example, this shirt, tinyurl.com/nphurgx

The woman is clearly an unfit mother and she is very lucky they didn't shoot her. If you don't have the self control or the understanding of common social norms enough to restrain yourself and instead act like that, you most certainly qualify as an idiot.

Re: “Where we come from

I saw the full pamphlet that included this in a laundromat; it is from the Jehovah's witnesses, and it actually admitted a modicum of legitimacy to the theory of evolution, which is progress, comparatively. If you're wrong and don't want to admit it, at least compromise, right?
