Re: “Club Boulevard decision delayed

"The breadth of the boulevard—40 feet—and the speed of 7,000–8,000 cars and trucks per day—make it a death-defying experience to cross the street."

I drive down Club during rush hour several times a week and I don't see why anyone is making a big deal out of this. If you want a narrow tree-lined residential street with heavy traffic and cars going 35+ mph, check out Duke, Gregson, University, Broad, etc. etc.. Compared to other similar streets around town, that portion of Club is the Lazy River. For a pretty major east-west thoroughfare, an average of five cars per minute (obeying the speed limit in my experience) is calm and doesn't call for a heated and passionate meeting. I seriously doubt that many people are avoiding their front porches because they consider this traffic situataion "inexorable."

HPC whining in Durham could be made into a weekly of its own, but I surely wouldn't read it.

Re: “Whiskey in downtown Durham is closing Aug. 2

Too bad for downtown, but this place was always too snooty for Durham

Re: “Pompieri Pizza vies as the Triangle's best

I can't think of many things that are less Durham than pizza snobbery.

Re: “Re: Best of the Triangle; Amendment 1

From a good book called the dictionary:

bigoted |ˈbigətid|
adjective
1) obstinately convinced of the superiority or correctness of one's own opinions and prejudiced against those who hold different opinions
2) expressing or characterized by prejudice and intolerance

There are a number of people on both sides of this issue who fit (1). (2) speaks for itself I think.
