Re: “Tracy Cline removed from Durham DA's office

I don't know enough about this case to make an informed judgement but my gut feeling is that she was trying to do the right thing in the wrong way.

Re: “Animal euthanasia rules languish over language

I'm not an animal activist but there was a documentary on a shelter that showed them euthanizing a bunch of dogs together with gas/carbon monoxide. If everyone who dropped off an animal to be euthanized that way had to watch that video, I guarantee the drop offs would decrease dramatically. You'd have to be like a stone to remain unmoved.
It's heart-wrenching to hear the dogs whining and howling. It's like a nightmare. They must know what's coming somehow. I completely agree with outlawing gassing. We had to have our dog put to sleep recently and it was humane and painless. I strongly feel that's the way it should be.

Re: “Realtors association electioneering could foreshadow troubles to come

Yeah, "a voluntary, private, non-profit organization with democratically-elected leadership" can extort money from it's members as a condition of doing business. Sounds great! Moveon and the ACLU are political organizations where membership is totally optional not business organizations which you have to join in order to do business. Even if you agree with NCAR's politics and the Supreme Court decision (which I don't but that's beside the point) the organization shouldn't be able to EXTORT money from it's members. I don't think even the wrong-headed (to put it politely) Supreme Court decision condones that, first amendment rights notwithstanding!
