Re: “Is Self-Service Beer the Trendy New Normal?

Gasoline stations ("fillin' stations" in the South) used to have people pumping gas. They don't now, except in Oregon and maybe a few other places. Some of those fillin' station employees were a lot of fun. You got to know them, and they got to know you.

But in the end, dispensing gas was not a value-added proposition and those jobs were eliminated in favor of lower prices. Many fast-food restaurants have gone to self-serve soft drinks for the same reason. I doubt that the bartending profession will go away anytime soon, but I'm not surprised to see some experimentation.

Re: “What Should Durham Do With Its Soon-Vacant Police Headquarters?

Demolish the building and start fresh on the site with a mix of uses - small retail, office or lab space, and a whole bunch of affordable housing in a 10-12 story development that will support transit.
