Re: “How many ways has K&L Gates touched you today?

Re 751... Durham might need some development or refurbishing in some areas, but nowhere close to a watershed. As for KL Gates "Just doing their job". That's a cop-out. Granted, the brunt of the responsibility falls in the lap of the developers & investors. ...and lawmakers. But the law firm IS the agent, and they don't have to be. This is a money grab at nature's expense, and also at the expense of those that want more responsible development. With all the people at KL Gates on boards & committees in Durham, I'm sure they're aware of opportunities that exist to develop in areas that would have less environmental consequences and could use the economic assistance, and they could still make money. Why not recommend development -or even better, re-furbishing- in those areas? What is responsible and what is legal can be - and are in many cases represented here- two different things. The political & legal systems in the U.S. are broken. Be an agent of what is "legal" AND responsible, not just what is "legal".

Re: “Abortion protesters target Enloe High School

Public schools provide an opportunity for students to learn academics, skills, & social interaction amongst their peers. Students of these schools should have this opportunity without distraction or bias. Ideology, religion, advertising, dogma, protests, opinions, etc. by those outside the school should remain... OUTSIDE THE SCHOOL.

Re: “Abortion protesters target Enloe High School

The state of NC should issue a restraining order against the group/groups involved in this incident immediately. The state should then set a boundary (1/3 mile perimeter?) around every school in the state as a solicitation/protest free zone for anyone other than the students or teachers of that school themselves. If that boundary is broached, then a HEAVY fine should be levied.
