Re: “Donald Trump Is an Incompetent Menace. Just Impeach Him Already.

Some verifiable proof, instead of politically-inspired allegations of Donald Trump's crimes against the country, would be nice for a change. When a writer holds up to contempt his audience (for not grasping what he claims is obvious), that often turns into a mirror that reflects poorly on the author's motivations. In other words, there ain't no more Walter Cronkites out there, least of all Mr. Billman.

Re: “Plate Expectations

If the headline had been: "Is Scott Crawford Better Off Without Standard Food"? The answer would have been a resounding "YES!" I dined often at Standard when Crawford was there because the food was the best in Raleigh and the service and staff were spot on! I've dined once at Standard since it reopened sans Crawford. Once was enough. The food was good but not memorable. However, what was memorable was the bar service. It was deplorable. Last night, I dined for the 4th time at Crawford and Son. As usual, the food was excellent and, as usual, the service was spot on.

Re: “How the Religious Right Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Libertine Adulterer Donald Trump

. . .Countless churches should lose their tax-exempt status and / or be prohibited from federal programs because their church pastors and leaders (intentionally or not) refuse to provide economic opportunities to some of the very people who are being used as commodity for federal dollars. Also, (via BOGUS NONPROFITS) too many church leaders and pastors are involved in: deceptive trade practices / undisclosed identity-of-interest relationships, transactions, and collusion / federal contract procurement non-compliance / illegal nepotism / catching the poor (Psalms 10:9) / and unlawfully refusing to extend jobs to people in need instead of creating careers for their families and friends. Hocus-Pocus Religion, Politicized Churches and Federally-Funded Oppression @


. . . federal programs and grants awarded to churches for addressing social poverty, and other maladies are not intended for accomplishing sealed and rigged bidding, and non-competitive businesses and careers for pastors families. Reiteratively, federal programs and funding are not to be transformed into private, family-owned church companies. Federal procurement statutes require government funding recipients to take affirmative steps to give economic opportunities to individual and small businesses.

Re: “Plate Expectations

Emma Laperruque and your response to this situation have been very unprofessional. Seeing the way both your organization and she has handled this has made me lose all trust in anything Indy-week publishes about a restaurant. She is unqualified and your display of Facebook comments clearly show why she was put in that position, YOU are unqualified too. This looks like a bunch of teenagers trying to cyberbully one of the popular kids. Grow up. Be professional. This isn't a college newspaper.

Re: “Smug Revisionism

Please, Mr. Keen, inform us on what kind of person Hilary Clinton is. But please leave out the innuendo, unsupported and false information. I would certainly appreciate becoming more informed and less ignorant (as you put it), especially from a person who claims to know so much about Clinton that we are all apparently missing.

Re: “White Rabbit Books—a personal reminiscence

Thank you for doing this when it wasn't easy! I hope you will eventually talk to me at some point again before it's over.

Re: “Derek Walker remembered

Wow I didn't know this young man, but my heart is so heavy for his family, I know he was a wonderful man, I can tell by all the wonderful comments and his smile is to die for. May god bless and keep his son and family. He died on my son's 43rd birthday.

Re: “Listen to Our Hotline to Hell

She was saved in 1974. So was I, but it didn't stick.

In 1976-1977, Michael Jordan was in my homeroom at Trask Middle School. He had a sense of humor back then. I presume he still does. Hidden away, perhaps, but still there.

Your caller may have a sharper pivot, though. It's close.

Re: “Loathe Hillary? Fine. Vote for Her, Anyway. Democracy Depends on It.

The author states that we have an imperfect system. Indeed. And his rationale of voting for the lesser of two evils is what maintains this system. Vote for the candidate that most aligns with your vision for your country and don't worry about anybody else.

Re: “Loathe Hillary? Fine. Vote for Her, Anyway. Democracy Depends on It.

Hillary is like prune juice. You don't really care for it and it is hard to swallow. But if you don't you'll be full of s__t for years to come.

If they cared about democracy they wouldn't have made a mockery of it during the primary.

Understandable take on the presidential race, but glosses over the benefits a third-party could gain from hitting the 5 percent threshold in the election.

Yes, I would be thrilled to vote for a criminal who has sold her country out for cash.

Re: “Loathe Hillary? Fine. Vote for Her, Anyway. Democracy Depends on It.

This was a great essay that precisely mirrors my own experience. I too opted not to vote in 2000, in my case because Nader wasn't on the ballot in NC. As a 20 year-old I should have known better, but I can't fully condemn young voters for clinging to Stein or Johnson since I made the same mistake myself. As for the 30 and 40 and 50 year-olds out there though, there's no excuse. If you don't vote for Hillary then you are unequivocally demonstrating that you are OK with a Trump presidency. If that's how you feel then fine, I think you're wrong but at least you're not playing yourself. As you so succinctly put it though, Gary Johnson and Jill Stein are not going to be president, and when you do anything besides vote for Clinton, you are saying I'm doing nothing tangible to keep President Trump from happening.
