Great selection, and Chaz's knowledge of music is unsurpassed. He makes incredible recommendations based on what you like. He hasn't missed a recommendation yet for me.
The section on gentrification cut out the very significant and nuanced context that Mel Norton of the People's Alliance, placed her statistics in. The issues of gentrification are the result of decades of structural and institutional racism that redlined property downtown and made sure that these properties degraded until they were unlivable.
Mel Norton laid out a nuanced understanding of why neighborhoods are changing, and all of our roles as gentrifiers. I look forward to seeing more research out of the People's Alliance as well as more advocacy for expanding permanently affordable housing across Durham.
We should demand tax rates similar to the 1950s or 1970s.
I agree with you in terms of winning at all costs, the dutch played a physical game that very often kept them in the game even when the other team had possession for the majority of the game.
At the same time there were a number of slide tackles with cleats up that were late and un-necessarily dangerous coming from the dutch. I'm all for a physical game, but going cleats up into someone's chest when it should've been obvious he had no chance for the ball should have resulted in a red card.
That said, I like how the Dutch play soccer/football, but the Spanish are a better team and I'm glad they won.
