Re: “Pit Bulls May or May Not Be Dangerous. But Bronwen Dickey Can Attest That Writing About Them Definitely Is.

Carolyn Lathrop having 5 of the first 7 comments on this article demonstrates Bronwen's point pretty well...

Re: “Bishop Darnell Dixon Sr.: “We Just Need to See Policemen Who Look Like Us”

(By "pretty problematic" I mean "probably illegal" for those with the dislikes. If you've got an argument for why it's not, I'd like to hear it.)

Re: “Bishop Darnell Dixon Sr.: “We Just Need to See Policemen Who Look Like Us”

I'm all for expanding diversity within the police force, but it seems pretty problematic to give race-based work assignments to public employees as suggested by the last two questions.

Re: “A local AIDS nonprofit has payment problems with a former employee. How far do the problems go?

The comments here do nothing to dispel impression that anyone reading the article has: this fight has gotten far too personal, and this organization is in serious trouble. The anonymous supporters disparaging Light aren't really helping their cause. Nobody disputes the underlying debt, so pay your workers. The resulting drama is indefensible.

Re: “Is the Durham Co-Op Market betraying its progressive roots?

I love shopping and eating at Durham Co-Op. I would be less concerned about the shares if they committed to joining the Durham Living Wage Project.

Re: “Tasers, trespassing and Twitter at the Harris Teeter

Nobody cares if he boozed it up in a state park. White people do that all the time and call it camping. And IndyWeek is probably the wrong place to go to post someone's prior <.5 oz pot charges as though that's justification for getting tased...

Re: “From the publisher: A note to our readers about editorial staff changes

To those who are wondering "what's going on", I think she'd probably rather them not share performance-related reasons for her firing with the entire Triangle... It's pretty polite and respectful to keep it at "she no longer works here." I appreciate the progressive pieces in the Indy, but the best pieces were almost invariably done by freelancers, while she put her own pieces on the cover (and that Venn diagram fail, lol, and the weirdly racist American Tobacco piece...). The Indy Week has had a history of thought-provoking criticism and hard-hitting investigative journalism. They were always progressive but fair. And under Lisa they were moving to dogmatic without the critical analysis and fluff-people-want-to-hear without the facts to back it up and make a convincing argument. I have no doubt that the Indy Week will continue to be progressive under new leadership, but hopefully they'll get back on the right journalistic track and have an editor who edits rather than self-promotes. The Indy Week is an institution, not an editor.
