Re: “The Morning Roundup: Donald Trump Jr. Tastes the Rainbow and a Poll That Makes You Go Hmmm

The "three out of a bowlful" estimate is wildly overstating the problem. How many Skittles are in a bowl - perhaps 300? So, that's a 1-in-100 rate, which (according to John Oliver on Last Week Tonight) is too high an estimate. In fact, of the 784,000 refugees in the 14 years following Sep 11, 2001, 3 were arrested for planning terrorist activities, none of them occurring in the US.

Re: “The New Colossus

An engaging, funny, powerful mess of a show. Well worth seeing. Even though it seems rather superficial at the beginning, and it is a bit episodic, but it hits some real powerful emotions in the second half. Plus, it's amazingly multi-faceted - indie guitar playing, singing, dancing, live camera work, literal man-in-the-street interviews, pre-recorded footage, a play within a play. Not to mention a wickedly wonderful soundtrack, that I want for my summer mix tape.

Re: “The Morning Roundup: It's Real Now

According to the N&O, McCrory also said "So, you know, maybe this is going to change with or without us, but it's changing dramatically. According to George Orwell, you don't get in the way of the thought police. But the sad news is we're not even talking about it." Yes, it is sad the legislature didn't talk it out before passing HB-2, and McCrory didn't discuss it much before signing it.

Re: “Death & Taxes Edged Out at Last Night’s James Beard Awards

And congrats to Vivian Howard from Kinston who won Best Personality/Host (that's an oddly-named category) for "A Chef's Life" on PBS.

Re: “Don't Tell Ashley Christensen What to Do with Her Bathrooms

My thoughts exactly. What an eloquent response!

Re: “The Morning Roundup: TFW Federal Judges Poke a Big Hole in Your Discriminatory Law

Thanks for the daily update! Based on the statements today from Berger and McCrory, it's becoming clear to me that HB2 was an attempt by the GOP to hurt Cooper in the coming gubernatorial election - by tying him to the President and the liberal elite - and it's backfiring on them.

Re: “The Addams Family, Mr. Burns and Asylum: A haunting trio of local productions, just in time for Halloween

Just saw Mr. Burns. I feared the play would be too dark and depressing. And although there were elements of loss, I was pleasantly surprised that the play becomes increasingly delightful and full of hope, with some wonderfully witty musical numbers.
