Re: “Sticker Shock: Why Does the Durham-Orange Light Rail Transit Project Suddenly Cost $3.3 Billion?

It's valid to ask how did the price tag get to $3.3B, but the more important question is how much more will it grow.

Re: “Roy Cooper Announces He’s Signed Fake HB 2 Repeal, Get Your Air Horns Ready

Hard-core conservatives were never going to compromise. They represent districts where Amendment One passed by over 70% (in some districts, by as much as 85%). There are enough hard-core conservatives in the General Assembly to block anything more progressive than what Cooper negotiated, and they don't care how many jobs in the Triangle are lost or how many sports tournaments go elsewhere. A deplorable situation? Yes, but it's the political reality today.

You don't get to vote in the districts where the hard-core conservatives come from. To get a more progressive policy in the General Assembly, you must change the hearts and minds of voters in those districts. It's tough work. You won't achieve your goal by expecting Cooper to wave a magic wand and do the hard work for you.

Re: “After Fifteen Years, the Michael Peterson Case Concludes But Provides Little Closure

He did it. Not a doubt in my mind. I knew them both and I've walked down the stairway.

Re: “No More Free Rides, Kids: Parking Meters Coming to Downtown Durham

People going to DPAC events Monday-Friday who have been parking for free on streets to avoid the garages... beware.

Re: “Christine Walczyk

I wonder how many weeks this campaign will continue. In the meantime, if the allegations have merit, I'm sure the North Carolina Judicial Standards Commission would like to hear of them.


Otherwise I'm not sure what the poster is attempting to achieve here.

Re: “We’re Calling It: Pat McCrory Is Toast

Mojo, on second glance I agree with you: it's a strainer. The juxtaposition of "death warrant" (needless hyperbole) and holes, however, tends to suggest bullet holes at first glance. (The weekly email sent by IndyWeek has only the photo and the caption.) And even so, I'm not sure that public spirit is well-served by a reference to urination. I'd like to see McCrory tossed out of office as much as anyone, but I don't want to see Clinton's face or Cooper's face on a urinal strainer, either. We don't have to go there.

Re: “We’re Calling It: Pat McCrory Is Toast

C'mon, IndyWeek, lighten up and show some professional restraint. Showing a photo of McCrory (whom I did not vote for and never will) with simulated bullet holes and a caption referring to a "death warrant" is downright shameful.
