Re: “Amid National Walkouts, Little Kids From Durham Early School Voice Their Own Call for the Rights of Children

It breaks my heart to see kids used in this way. And to see our elected officials participating. Shame.

Re: “What to Do With a Problem Like Duane Hall

I'm not surprised that Hall's critics want him out without a vote. That's not the democratic way; let the voters decide.

What's wrong with waiting until May 8 Primary?? I'll tell you. Critics don't want to chance it that the voters might get it "wrong". So let's push him out without a vote. Alinsky tactics.

Just like those with TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome) want to do with Pres.

Sad day for democracy.

Re: “Durham Activists Want the City to Become the First in the U.S. to Condemn Exchanges Between Local Cops and Israeli Security Forces

@Deborah Friedman Be sure to write the Mayor and City Council with your views.

Re: “Durham Activists Want the City to Become the First in the U.S. to Condemn Exchanges Between Local Cops and Israeli Security Forces

Was it impossible to find anyone with a reasonable view on this? Israel is our ally and offers excellent security training

Why was this not a balanced article??

Re: “City Council Members Aren't On Board With a Proposal to Cut Free Bus Service in Durham

I assume if we make a bus line free then we have less money to spend on other bus services Thats a choice elected officials can make but there is no free lunch

HRC started criticizing Duke for helping to fund the service back when I was serving on the Commission. It was obvious that this would lead to Duke eventually droppping its support

Is that what the HRC wanted? Quo bono? Those with political aspirations??

No one esp not our economically challenged residents are being helped here.

I hope the Mayor and Council members can lead us to a positive solution that helps all residents who need public transportation
