Yum... I don't suppose there are vegan versions?

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: “Primer: North Carolina Might Be the Future of U.S. Politics and Other Things You Need to Know Today

Every other mention I've seen of the GA6 winner has spelled her last name "Handel."

Re: “In a Statement, The Durham Hotel Apologizes to Michael Cho, Says It Does Not Tolerate Discrimination

I'm baffled by the existence of such a policy. Unless an assault or threatening behavior occurs *on the premises* of the restaurant, an accusation should not result in anyone's removal. Only the person who is uncomfortable should be invited to leave, if he or she wishes, with the offer of an escort if desired; without proof, the restaurant has no business disrupting anyone else's evening.

Re: “Once Again, the Voter ID Law Creates Confusion at a DMV (Updated)

Exactly, lp 1. If they weren't driving here, and their out of state licenses were accepted for other purposes, they had no need of a North Carolina credential before now. They would have had to be psychic to imagine they might be breaking a law. In fact, if this is accurate, I guess I was breaking the law for almost 2 years from 2002-2004 when I was without a car and of course dropped my car insurance but certainly did not give up my license. Who would even imagine that?

I'm concerned that poll workers will not know the new rules and procedures and will turn away some who are actually in compliance. In the 2014 primaries, I encountered an entire crew who didn't know that as an Unaffiliated voter I could choose to vote in any party's primary; they all thought I couldn't vote at all, and I had to wait for them to get instructions from somebody downtown. And this is not new: It's been the law at least since 1992 when I changed my registration.

Re: “Civitas Institute press release about the importance of education absolutely riddled with grammatical errors

David Klein, I agree with you that it's sloppy and inexcusable and Civitas should be ashamed of it. My point is that it is not, in fact, "absolutely riddled with grammatical errors" and the article's outrage is way out of proportion to the flaws.
