Re: “The Art of Navigating Trump's America — as a Russian

Kudos to Kemp for bringing up Putin's "old tricks of spying, interfering in foreign affairs and wreaking chaos". After all, he's got the NSA conducting mass surveillance on all his country's citizens, he's interfered with the Israeli election and the Brexit vote and the bombing of seven Muslim-majority countries, and he certainly wreaked chaos by invading Libya and sparking multiple crises (migrants, human trafficking, slavery).

Oh wait, that was some other guy.

Re: “Whither Sex, Romance, Gender I.D. and Body Image?

Over the years several groups have asked to be known by different labels, and people not in those groups have generally obliged.

To wit: colored > negro > black > Afro-American > African-American > person of color

or:

homosexual > gay > queer > LGBT > LGBTQ

etc.

Nobody has ever asked to be called "cis". So stop. Or if you have to give us a label, since you're so focused on identity politics, I suggest the following:

Not Obsessed with Ridiculous Moronic Asinine Labels, abbreviated: NORMAL

Re: “Former Mayor Anthony Foxx Offers Real Talk on Charlotte's Problems

I agree that Charlotte needs to recognize its diversity. Consider that we have:

Black Democrat Mayor
Black Democrat County Commission Chair
Black Democrat School Board Chair
Black Democrat Police Chief
Black Democrat Fire Chief
Black Democrat District Attorney
Black Democrat Economic Development Committee Chair

Re: “Vi Lyles Discusses Housing, Policing, HB2 and Other Charlotte Issues

The Bojangles vote was ENTIRELY about soccer. Ed Driggs proposed paying for the Bojangles improvements out of the tourism tax and using the originally-earmarked $18.5 million for affordable housing. But oh no! that would have taken some money out of the tourism tax bucket, making it unavailable to subsidize the billionaire Smiths' ill-conceived soccer proposal. Lyles sided with the billionaires, Kenny Smith sided with affordable housing.

Re: “Vi Lyles Is The Only Choice For Mayor

Lyles voted against allocating $18.5 million to affordable housing, instead using that money for improvements to Ovens & Bojangles and reserving tourism tax money for the billionaires and their failed sucker - er - soccer bid. She also supported giving over a half-billion dollars to a corrupt foreign company to build $20-per-trip toll lanes on I-77, a project that the NCDOT admitted will do nothing to relieve congestion. Kenny Smith has been on the right side of both these crucial issues.

Re: “20 Ways to Seduce a Banker Bro

J. Crew items do not have visible logos, nor do most Brooks Brothers items other than their polo and rugby shirts.

Re: “Osiris Rain Battles Heatstroke and a Broken Ankle to Complete NoDa Mural

Stella Artois isn't a "brewing company". It's one of many brands sold by AB-InBev, the world's largest beer company and one dedicated to squashing independent breweries such as the ones in the NoDa neighborhood. Mr. Rain may have to eat, but I doubt if any NoDa residents are anxious to buy him a (real) beer.
