Re: “Psst … Guess What? Your Brunch Waiter Hates You.

As a veteran of the restaurant business, I don't see anything here that strikes me as inaccurate.

Re: “Pit Bulls May or May Not Be Dangerous. But Bronwen Dickey Can Attest That Writing About Them Definitely Is.

I have never met a pit bull who didn't think he or she was a lap dog. All that licking immediately puts me in a better mood.

Re: “Charlotte Is Losing the All-Star Game

This is infuriating. Millions in lost revenue just so our ass backwards legislature can discriminate against people. Throw the bums out.

Re: “Pit Bulls May or May Not Be Dangerous. But Bronwen Dickey Can Attest That Writing About Them Definitely Is.

I was attacked by a pit-bull rottweiler mix, and got it to HALT
just before it got to
me on a run;

DOGS OF WAR?
The command "HRAUS" is the German command to release the Dogs of War,
from which comes the term "HARASS"
so when a cop sicced a dog on me with the command "HRAUS"
when I walked home past his house,
that was true harassment, in its most primitive form.
Fortunately, I've known attack dog trainers, and when I said "HALT"
with the German pronunciation, the dog halted and sat down.
The dog was better trained than its owner,
whose wife (also a cop) referred to
a couple of elderly women sitting on their porceh as "Porch Monkeys".

Re: “What Will It Take for Durham to Clean Up the Area around N.C. Central?

bullcitygirl and Gladdek

more to your points, there should be an initiative or more of a city-wide effort to get more black middle class families to invest in this area by renovating and moving into these properties. Of course, these families would require sort of incentive, but the city could provide that too.

I have two pitbull-type dogs, but I partially agree with Carolyn's points. One of the dogs is an absolute angel. However, the one other one pledged allegiance to ISIS and crossed the border into Syria.

Noted. Excellent use of your English degree. Now shuffle on back to the kitchen and get my vegan bacon.

Re: “What Will It Take for Durham to Clean Up the Area around N.C. Central?

@bullcitygirl - Preservation Durham is working on a project called Preservation Equity that is trying to build ties in that neighborhood and help current homeowners take advantage of historic tax credits to fix up their own homes. If you still have ties to the neighborhood it would be great if you could reach out to the director, Ben Filippo Ben@preservationdurham.org

It's crucial for PD to have the trust of the neighborhood for this project to work.

Re: “Psst … Guess What? Your Brunch Waiter Hates You.

Lol of course the author wasn't afraid to speak their mind. Thats what the internet is for. People get really honest when they can be anonymous. But yeah people at brunch can be jerks.

Re: “Pit Bulls May or May Not Be Dangerous. But Bronwen Dickey Can Attest That Writing About Them Definitely Is.

I will be looking for this book, can't wait to read!!....When I got my girl, I also got a book along with her (Animal Planet)...this book was spot on with many things about these dogs, I loved it!
And I will add....I have a wonderful, happy, gentle Staffy....she was almost put down because of the hate spews of the ignorant, but I ignored(my husband had said no because of all the negative he heard about them) and went full force ahead and my girl is 7 yrs old and counting, with never a mishap as what some say they WILL do.
Thank-You for writing this book

Former waiter to confirm: working brunch sucks. Former dishwasher chiming in: washing dishes for a brunch buffet is like a million times worse.

Re: “Mike Krzyzewski Weighs in on HB 2

I agree 100% that the collage team should be inclusive. I mean, come on! Women and men can use the same scissors and glue, people! Everything else you said was fucking stupid.

Re: “Mike Krzyzewski Weighs in on HB 2

Let's just see how it goes when a trans-gendered former boys high school basketball player from Virginia shows up and makes 69 points a game on the girls basketball team! Another runs track while a third joins the girls swim team. Just wait untill they get all the scholarships and peoples daughters get to try and beat Michelle, Janie and Lisa (formally known as Mike,James and Larry). That will be a real hoot. Women are just as good as men at everything so we should just have one collage team and make it unisex with no preferences given to sex so everyone is treated equal. Your daughter can easily out-run, out-swim and out-play men at basketball can't she? The trans-gendered females should have to play the girls on a level playing field. I have faith that some young man out there somewhere that can be competitive against girls. The good part is transgender former males in high-school that can't quite get a scholarship on the mans team for some reason might be able to shine as a woman once she is more comfortable about her identity. Then "she" might get a chance to play after all, but only if "she" can somehow compete on the girls team. Then she can have her collage paid for and get the social protections entitled to a woman.

Oh Carolyn, every time you comment you look more foolish and maniacal. Post after post of nonsense. (Like zhampoo wasn't invented until last century. "Better to keep your mouth closed and let people assume you're a fool than open it and remove all doubt"

For the fella that suggested she write her own book_ she doesn't have time with all the internet stalking and tin foil hat fittings. Every time an article comes out about Ms. Dickey, the flying monkeys swoop in and prove how crazy they are.

CB,MaR,JB,LH, and many others are just criminals that are placing their anger onto innocent dogs rather than receive the actual help they TRULY need....
Mrs. Dickey is an outstanding member of society. They could learn a thing or two from her...
