Re: “Those Kids HB 2 Is Supposed to Protect? They Don’t Want Your Protection.

Sanctioned or not sanctioned it was going on-and the staff is responsible for knowing, just like in schools all across America. Kids will do what they will, but adults should be their with the wisdom that even the smartest teen can't have.

Re: “After 15 years, Chapel Hill is still trying to get a grip on its housing problem

moved from NYC to chapel hill in 2014 after it was suggested to me that it was a good place for a single mother to raise a child.

I Stayed 1 year and left.

from the roached out apartments living next door to illegal mexicans, to the idiotic traffic on fordham blvd by manning drive(you don't put a traffic light at the bottom of a hill that's DOT 101),to the sky high rent prices for tiny 2 bedrooms. in cramped cookie cutter apartment communities.

They also like to charge for water and garbage down here. Never heard of that and never paid for my own water renting in NYC in the past 25 years. (people who own homes pay for water/landlords pay for the renters water and garbage in NYC)

i had to move back to NYC to save money and my sanity (no joke)

never would i recommend chapel hill/durham/raleigh to anyone not even my worst enemy.

if you were not born here or went to Duke/UNC they don't want you here. and will treat you as such

Re: “This Durham 'Day of Rage' Rumor Is a Bunch of Fearmongering


"I was quoting from an email sent out by DCSO to courthouse employees"

Actually, you didn't quote anything. Why don't you?

Durham seems to have survived last night without incident, amazingly enough.

"Why would I make this up??"

Who knows? One possibility: you're a flying monkey for Trump and are doing this for the exact same reason Trump lied about the "moment of silence" for the Dallas shooter.

Re: “North Carolina’s Progressive History and the Neo-Carpetbaggers Putting It in the Rearview

Thank you. I fight everyday for a sense of history of what NC was and what it has become. Most people know nothing or very little of its progressive history, just putting it unfairly in with the rest of the southern states. I know from my family history, how much we fought for the progressive state NC was and will continue to, until I die. Lucia Blount Safran Messina.

Re: “Embark on a Timely Voyage Into Immigration Issues in I Wish You a Boat

Four of our friends accompanied us to this production. We have seen other Wendy Ward productions and loved them all but this one takes the cake! The settings, the costumes, and the fine acting made this a mesmerizing experience. What stunned me most of all was the facility with which the actors spoke in foreign tongues, most notably Polish! Incredibly well done. Wendy is a talented producer and director with great insight into her characters and the story.

Re: “Those Kids HB 2 Is Supposed to Protect? They Don’t Want Your Protection.

Dumite, the club has not existed for years. It was a relatively short-lived phenomenon. The administration did not condone and was clear about not permitting the activity as the article states. The fact that teenagers may have continued an activity for a period time not sanctioned by school officials is not unique to high schools in America.

Re: “This Durham 'Day of Rage' Rumor Is a Bunch of Fearmongering

@ladylaw: you're citing an email that no one mentions anywhere else in local media that I can find (explosive devices stashed in and around government buildings is generally considered newsworthy) and your account was created the day you started posting this stuff. Please forgive us if we regard your claims as bullshit pending independent verification.

@lxxxcv I was quoting from an email sent out by DCSO to courthouse employees, you pompous ass. Definitely not made up.

Re: “This Durham 'Day of Rage' Rumor Is a Bunch of Fearmongering

Um. For one thing, you don't "plant" Molotov cocktails.

"Intel units," lol.

Trying to make people afraid with totally made-up crap is pretty despicable, even when it's as lame and transparent as this.

Proof or is it true because it's on the Internet?

Re: “HB 2: How Did We Get Here?

The best part of the Indy this week were all the ads - brilliant, poignant and clever ads that businesses took out against HB2.

Re: “This Durham 'Day of Rage' Rumor Is a Bunch of Fearmongering

Law enforcement actually found molotov cocktails planted in Durham today near a probation office and identified someone scouting security cameras around the Durham County Courthouse. Intel units also indicated they have received info that molotov cocktails will be placed at strategic locations in downtown Durham. Molotov cocktails were also planted by the Fayetteville Courthouse today. So I don't think "Ignoring It," is the best advice.

Re: “Wake County Judge Michael Denning: 'China Wouldn't Be So Bad If It Weren't for All the Chinese'

Judge Michael Denning represents everything a Judge should NOT be. His discriminatory comment of "China wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't for all the Chinese" proves he should NOT be a Judge. He certainly should never be a Superior Court Judge!! Judges are supposed to be able to be trusted, yet Judge Denning made a discriminatory comment.

There should be no discriminatory comments made by anyone. Judge Denning should resign as a Judge as he made a discriminatory comment during a court hearing!! He shouldn't even be running for Superior Court Judge.

Re: “With Donald Trump Leading the GOP, N.C. Dems See an Opening

Nice talk and all, but the NC Dems aren't even fielding candidates in 1/4 of the state legislative races.

You're right Randy, I should have called you for comment. I incorporated your remarks into the blog post.
