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.

Re: “Duke Energy's Merger With Piedmont Natural Gas Goes Before N.C. Utilities Commission Next Week

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

Re: “Duke Energy's Merger With Piedmont Natural Gas Goes Before N.C. Utilities Commission Next Week

I work at Duke Energy and the Indy used to call me for a comment. Oh well!

Duke Energy has 35 solar farms in NC. The state is #3 in the nation for solar power. The pace of new solar in NC is second only to California.

The company's overall energy capacity mix right now is 4.5% wind and solar and 7.8% renewable hydro.

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

Tolerance doesn't mean a lack of boundaries and using the same shower and locker room is different than nude bobsledding and shower games between children. I am totally opposed to HB2 and also the lack of responsible leadership shown at Cary Academy. It is a huge liability to allow such conduct and students can hold "shower club" outside of school and their parents can sponsor it if they want their child to participate! Everyone should be welcome to belong and be appreciated for whomever they are, but that doesn't mean adults turn a blind eye to being responsible. Why would any teacher care what it "looks like" rather than the issue of what is going on? Abigail did a great job writing this piece and her open mindedness is to be applauded, but the school 's behavior is very troubling.

Re: “Who Is Tim Moore Suing?

There're fixing to be skeletons falling out of NCGOP and Republican NCGA members' closets all over the place (and maybe some coming out of the closet, too). It'll be like a bunch of drunk guys falling out of a cab.
