If you think "plagiarism" and bullying of teachers and kids runs rampant in Chapel Hill, take a good look up the road with the misguided management of administration that runs foul within the Durham Public Schools.
CHCCS has had a problem with this for many years,and this way before Ms. Jackson ever set foot onto the office of principal. The school system is run by uppity parents and right-wing extremists liberals who worked in the central office who cried "wolf" when something happens. Yeah,I said it the people who accused Ms. Jackson of plagiarism are just the kind of right wing liberals that control not only the school system here but the town as well.
I do fondly remember "The Morton Downey Show" when it ran in syndication late night during the mid-1980's and ended its run in the early 1990's. And for those who remember seeing the show,which was taped before a "rowdy" live audience at New York's WOR-TV and the guests he had on that show. I've seen the TV show,but to many of us,his show was right up there long before the trash talkers and garbage that comes from Jerry Springer and Maury Povich and to an lesser extent Wendy Williams. But from the previous comment, and to many of us we get that same quality of trash talk liberal right wing garbage from radio talk show hosts like Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck and even to the lowest common point of stupidity from Michael Savage, Neil Boortz, and Herman Cain, Ed Schultz, Tavis Smiley and from the idiots who run FOX News.
Not since the original "Emmanuelle" has a movie this explicit been so erotic. The last erotic French film to push the envelope was the 2006 erotic sexually graphic "Exterminating Angels"
One of the top ten documentaries of 2012.
Speaking of McDonald's on that side of Northeast Durham at Avondale Drive and North Roxboro Street near Club Blvd.......it opened in 1959 as one of the first franchises in the Bull City,which to this day is still going strong.....At the time it was the only McDonald's in town until the mid-1970's where the chain expanded its operations throughout Durham.....nowadays,McDonald's is everywhere you wanna go.
You were saying about where this theater originated at? I know that side of town as rough and dangerous. Northeast Durham by Braggtown is especially rundown by the shopping center that is at the intersection of North Roxboro Street and East Club Boulevard. The Manbites Dog Theater was on the opposite end of the shopping center that across the street from a King's Red & White Supermarket, a taqueria establishment(formerly the Old Fowler's Grocery),that is surrounded by fast food establishments, check cashing centers and anything else....The shopping center at the corner of North Roxboro and Club was once home to a Winn-Dixie grocer(formerly Western Auto now Advance Auto),and a Eckerd Drugs and the fast food joints that ran along Roxboro Street by Avondale Drive were Arby's(which moved next door to the local McDonald's), once upon a time a Dunkin Donuts and not to even mention the Sizzler Steak House and right next door the KFC....These days, Dunkin Donuts, and the Sizzler are gone,and so is the local KFC(which is now home to crackheads and drug dealers and other run down stuff).....By the way,does anyone remember Shoney's being at the intersections of Avondale Drive and North Roxboro Street near Interstate 85? That is gone too. The McDonald's at the crossroads of Avondale Drive and North Roxboro Street was in fact the first fast food establishment in Durham during the 1960's....before it exploded into the abyss that it is today...
I too remember seeing one play in either 1987 or 1988 at this little theater,and it probably was the one of the more explicit ones.........Even to where it moved to on Foster Street near the old ballpark gives a more diverse feel....with more to cover than it was originally on the rough side of town...that is Braggtown Northeast Durham.
I agree with Razor Charlie.....It's a crying shame that the Broad Street Cafe was not included in this "hunt" for the best pizza palaces in the Triangle. The pizza there is very impressive. I'm surprised that they didn't include another Durham landmark for great pizza..."Satisfactions" over at Brightleaf Square, not to mention over in Chapel Hill at Brix's Firewood Pizza over at Meadowmont. But who thought of this survey when they thought that "Tomato Jake's" was regarded as the best pizza in town? "Tomato Jake's!?" And they had the nerve to put on there list "Cici's"...."Cici's Pizza?"...that pizza that taste like crap?/??
