Re: “Homer's night on the town

Well, I suggest anyone called to jury duty study up jury nullification. No harm occurred here. If anything, he brought extra business to the local nightlife and team. Thus, find him not guilty. What's he guilty of? Being fun loving?

Re: “Homer's night on the town

I want to tell Joe that going on the record before his trial is probably not in his best interest, but how can I say 'no' to a story like this?

Re: “Homer's night on the town

I have travelled to just about every city/metropolitan area in the county, many times. This article/interview just cements why I find Creative Loafing to be the best local periodical in the United States.

Thank you.

Re: “Death of Charlotte biker brings cycling community together

First, Ryan this is great writing. I appreciate your detailed coverage, going beyond the surface issue and getting a broad set of opinions.

Second, Parkwood is an excellent example of how bad things can be for a pedestrian or cyclist. I cross Parkwood every day either commuting to work on bike or walking my dog in the neighborhood. It is unbelievable. 55 is the new 35; it is like a 4 lane highway at 830am. A half baked solution is not the answer here, we need dedicated lanes and drastic lowering of the speed limit along with strict enforcement. In NC if someone is going 15mph over the speed limit and traveling in excess of 55mph it is mandatory that they lose their driving privledges. This is how dangerous the state finds those conditions to be for us, the other drivers and people. It happens every day on this road.

Third, how are all of the people using the BLE crossing these roads, especially as we grow denser in the center city area and neighborhoods. We will build a train we have to drive to. That's not the idea. That's not what we want Charlotte! We want to be better than Atlanta from both a traffic and pedestrain/cyclist perspective. To do so we can't follow the pack, as Moore is advocating this is the time to be the lead on how America commutes in the southeast. Nobody has ever said "driving my car for the rush hour commute this morning was so great". Throwing more lanes and parking spots won't ever change that. Think about it.

Re: “Death of Charlotte biker brings cycling community together

Nice, thorough article, Ryan. It's good to read about the progressive thinking regarding transportation in this city. I especially like Mickey's quote about being an alive asshole.

Not to detract from the cycling focus here, but I think Jordan makes a good point when he says Al's death could have been a stroller-pusher or a dog-walker. I disagree, though, with his assessment that drivers have "got to" drive like dicks. It's strange how getting behind the wheel turns a sane person mad - everyone's seen it - there's a special anxiety about time when driving. Each driver can make a conscious decision to respect life - drive the speed limit, stop at red lights, don't accelerate through yellow lights. Tell yourself you're doing it in an effort to be a better person. Be above the time-crunch paradigm. Almost every driver has been guilty of it, but we can be better going forward.

Re: “Organizers ramp up efforts to get the black community to the polls

I love how these folks always talk "grassroots" but when it gets right down to it, all they want you to do is shut up and vote for us.

They really don't want your questions, comments or suggestions.

Especially AFTER the election.

Re: “Some candidates feel it's 'affiliate or die'

I won as an unaffiliated candidate in 2002 beating both a Republican and a Democrat. Granted it was a nonpartisan election but it can be done.

I hope the "journalist" who wrote that was just as interested in the undercover PP videos. Watch the full-length videos and decide for yourself -- if you dare:

Re: “'Monogamous, marriage-worthy' gay couple stereotype hinders progress on HIV

i am short of words and i don't have much time to spend but i want to say
some few words on how i got my ex-girlfriend back. i saw many testimonies
on net on how helped many people to get their loved
ones back. i emailed the email which i found there and told him that my ex
left me because i don't have money that please dr helped me to get her back
i really loved her to the extent that i can do without her beside me. so he
gave me a form to fill which i did and also i sent the pictures of my ex
and i to him, he get back to me that he need some items to cast the spell
on me and it will cost me the sum of $180 dollars to get them, immediately
a thought came to my mind that this is a fake spell caster and he want to
take away my money after thinking this he told me that he is not trying to
take away my money and also he is not fake, so that i should not think
otherwise and if i really need my ex back that the choice is all my for me
to take. i told him sir please i don't have any money at hand now and is
there no any other way for him to helped me without those items, he told me
that he can helped me and those items is what his gods will use to cast the
love spell on me. then i told him that i will get back to him in three
months time. he said to me that i should forget about the conservation
which we just had that he is done and i should not come for help anymore
that am not ready, and he told me that these items is needed before three
days time. i cried but no one to help i sell out some of my property and
also borrowed little from my friends and send the money to him to purchase
the required items. he called me the next day and told me that he has done
with my problem that my faith has set me free. i was imagine because there
was no sign that my ex is coming back when i was about to call him back my
ex arrived at my door step and go to her knees and ask for forgiveness that
i should accept her back. now we are now engaged and thanks to dr.bmars for
his marvelous work. email him on ....

Re: “Breaking down the reaction to the Kerrick mistrial

So, #blacklivesmatter states they want "justice". "No justice no peace". Yet based on Ms Williams' comments, this group "needed" a conviction and won't be happy without it. So, can someone explain how THAT is justice?? Ms. Williams is essentially saying that #BLM is the judge, jury, and executioner for this case. They have already tried Mr. Kerrick in their own court of opinion and don't care what the evidence says or what the justice system or jury have to say (unless they say "guilty"). That isn't justice. That is tyranny.

Adding the contact information really would be. That way the vendors, food service people, and musicians that are urged to utilize the space can have someone to call...
