Re: “Museum of Life and Science board chimes in on billboard issue

Dear Mr, Van Deman,

I am thrilled to see that after what I'm sure can be categorized as an avalanche of e-mails from every corner of Durham's diverse population expressing their dismay that our cherished institution The Museum of Life and Science was taking the extreme low road of openly siding with the sleazeball Billboard industry, you have been obligated to write a letter of "clarification".

Unfortunately your letter does not accurately portray the events surrounding the Museum's appalling letter to Mayor Bill Bell in which the Museum openly expressed how "they will benefit" from a change in the ordinance and to make sure that the Mayor considers "the opportunities for non profits with the ordinance change". By anyone's standards this is a clear endorsement.

So, there is NO CONFUSION, dear sir. The majority of the Durham population is only confused by the Museum's reckless endorsement of a policy change that will bring no benefit to Durham and will only do it harm.

By not assuming responsibility of the letter sent to Mayor Bell, you are only sowing more doubt as to your original intentions. What and who are exactly trying to protect by this misleading letter?

I think that the folks in Durham and Museum members like myself have the right to protest when we believe you are tarnishing the image of a great Durham institution.

Sincerely.

Rodrigo Dorfman

Re: “DPS school board: Beyer files for runoff against incumbent Martin

I was working the polls this Tuesday and I got to talk to a lady in her sixties, walked straight, with a twinkle in her eyes. I told her that if she wanted to 'stir the pot" she should vote for Natalie Beyer. She smiles and said, "I like stirring the pot!", took my flyer and proceeded to vote for Natalie. I'm sure Durham has enough good folks who want to stir the pot to get Natalie Beyer elected and bring the kind of fresh perspective we're going to need to get out of this mess.
