Re: “All but two holdouts leaving the troubled Velvet Cloak Inn

I don't get it. What the Smoots are doing looks like extortion. Is it legal? How can it be? If it isn't, why aren't there arrests, or at least lawsuits? It seems to me that you left a lot out of this story.

Re: “2014 General Election: Early Voting by the Numbers

How does this compare with the 17-day 2010 totals? In other words, are we on track at least to match those numbers?

Re: “The Vintage church in Raleigh attracts young college students, but does its anti-women stance collide with its public image?

Do you know what's happening to Unity Center of the Triangle, the current occupant of Longview?

In answer to apexwiner about alternative churches: There is the Unity Center; also Triangle Center for Spiritual Living and Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Raleigh.

Re: “A good death: Like Sue Otterbourg, more people are taking control of the end

A great job, and a story I'll share with a friend who has just been told there's nothing else to be done for him, after nearly 12 years of dozens of treatments for multiple myeloma.

But I have to ask... Mrs. Otterbourg died 2 years ago; why has there been such a long lag in publishing this story?

Re: “Rachel Maddow calls N.C. GOP "amazeballs"

I've always been pleased that North Carolina was more progressive than most of the rest of the south and other right-wing nut-job-dominated red states, but thanks to the results of last year's election, we are joining those ranks at an alarming clip and becoming a national laughing stock. With attempts to establish an official state religion and now these attempts at voter suppression, we have been mocked and reviled in the national media for a solid week. And that's not counting the bill earlier this year to make nipple exposure (women's only) a felony. I am not amused.

Rachel promised another segment about NC for tonight, BTW.
