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

Dude is a rich white man who could afford good representation. What about the truly innocent people who can't access that help & are languishing in prison?

If he didn't kill Kathleen I'd like to know what did. The stupid owl theory doesn't cut it, nor does "she fell down the stairs". Elizabeth Ratliff might have legitimately fallen down the stairs but Kathleen did not. I think he got the idea for this type of murder from Liz's 1985 fall. He's made some seriously disturbing comments before & was likely desensitized to killing after his stint in Vietnam.

From Amybeth Berner:

"Michael had told me that he'd been in the CIA at some point and had point-blank murdered someone while he was in Vietnam. That concerned me. Then later on, I believe it was the summer of '84, my husband and I had lost custody... um -- we won custody of his two children and they weren't returned, and Michael came to me at that point and he said that he had connections, and if I wanted to have her knocked off he would do that. And I told Michael that, that wasn't a way that I would operate. I went to my husband at that point and told him what he had offered to do."

Re: “A Requiem for David McKnight: Prodigy, Journalist, Politician, Homeless Street Musician

This is a wonderful tribute to David. David was in my class at Duke and was one of my best friends. He played an original composition on his viola. not violin, at my wedding. We nicknamed him "the Shadow" because he was always taking trips. He would disappear for a while and then return to re-enroll at Duke. He finally did graduate. I was there for the Senate campaign. He visited all 100 counties in North Carolina. I was also there when he worked for the Durham Morning Herald. He was a great writer. I lost track of him after I moved away from North Carolina in 1976. I am sad to learn about his descent into mental illness, although there were harbingers of that when I knew him. I am glad to know that he brought so much pleasure to the residents and students in Durham. He was truly a light in the world and he will be sorely missed.

Re: “June 21 Crossword Solution

A few quibbles with this puzzle which went a long way for 6 theme answers. 48A is not on the current list of USPS acronyms. The clue for 35D is for the homonym CLEWS not the answer CLUES. Some of the other clues needed tighter editing, ex. SERIC- is a prefix combing form, not a word.

Re: “Primer: What The Senate Health Care Bill Looks Like and Other Things You Need to Know Today

I'm pretty sure blue laws are unconstitutional; maybe we should fight them in court. Oh, wait... the AG won't have any lawyers for stuff like that.

Re: “Four Years After His Death, Jason Molina Lives on Through a New Book and a Revived Reunion

Thanks to the band at Motorco tonight. It was beautiful. I never get chills in late June during a Carolina summer, but tonight those chills came to me frequently during your wonderful set. "The Lioness" nearly caused hypothermia.

Re: “Mayor Bill Bell Has Overseen a Bull City Renaissance. So Why Has Durham’s Poverty Rate Gone Up on His Watch?

someone just asked me what i thought about this article again. i said that this article posits Bell as possibly slave to developer interest and betrayer of his people. Steve Schewel is framed as the (former) owner of [the] independen(ce)t. Jillian Johnson is forwarded as the voice of minority interests. Jillian and Steve came to Durham as students. Not that they ain't great. This article glosses institutional influence and probes developer impact.

It's (not so) subtle.

Especially with the upcoming election.

Re: “The Holloways Start a Food Truck Dynasty on Rigsbee Avenue

I've had the pleasure of meeting Frank and being served by him across the street from Surf Club on a cold winter's night late last year. He was cool, told us about his family's business, served up some great food, and since we were his last customers and he was getting ready to head off he offered us some free bottles of water. I have tons of respect for what he and his mother are doing and wish them the best. And like you said, not only is the food great, but it is consistently so and it's not over-priced like most of the others on your top ten list.

Re: “The Durham County Sheriff’s Office Says It Doesn’t Participate in ICE’s Secure Communities Program. Tell That to Jairo Garcia del Cid.

This kid gets picked up for stealing a car, ends up in jail, and is not in the country legally. Hard to be sympathetic for his plight. People like this should be deported. Kudos to Durham Sheriff's office for keeping our county safe.
