Re: “Durham Is North Carolina‚Äôs Hippest City, According to Vogue, Which Would Definitely Know These Things

My problem with these kind of articles is how superficial they are. A great food scene is undoubtedly correlated with being a "hip" city, but is it really the reason why, Vogue? Journalists who want to proclaim Durham the next "it" town should actually spend more than a weekend, talk to the people who live here, and try to look past the restaurants and places to get a drink. Then they might actually start to figure out why Durham is so awesome and what caused those places to crop up to begin with.

Re: “Even Though Republicans Control the Legislature, Redistricting Reformers Have Hope

This is great news, but it won't happen unless we are vocal in encouraging our representatives to act on this. Call or email them!

Don't know who represents you (like, uh, I didn't?) - this site is really helpful! http://www.ncleg.net/representation/WhoRep…

Re: “Historic Liberty Warehouse to be demolished; condos and stores to replace it

As a Preservation Durham member I'm very disappointed in PD's role in this fiasco. Removing Landmark status was a total mistake as it's removed any power people had in shaping what becomes of the Liberty. Meetings like what was held the other night are just the developers paying lip service to the public's concerns. And PD just rolled over on this one! What role should a preservation society play in these things if not to fight for, here's a novel idea, preservation? The Liberty Warehouse might not be the prettiest building Durham has lost over the years (see - the Jack Tar hotel, Union Station, etc.) but it's unarguably one of the most "historic" we have left. It deserves to be saved and Preservation Durham should have put up a fight for it.
