  • Who’s the weirdo?

    You can expect weird things when Vernon Robinson and Brad Miller engage in debate. But it got really weird when Robinson said Miller, the Democratic incumbent, has San Francisco values and that he’s a liberal who supported a medical study in which teenage girls would be shown pornography to…

  • In other words

    ConAlt zeroes in on one aspect of the RMA’s case against Wray: that the investigative unit tracking Hinson purported to be part of a federal investigation. From the report: …Wray made several deceptive and misleading references not only behind the investigation of Hinson, but why the department was…

North Carolina has three major urban centers and several lesser ones. Each should have viable mass-transit systems that allow most urban dwellers to…

And when you don’t follow SOP while working…

  • The sake of argument

    My memory may be faulty, but I haven’t seen Guilford County commissioners do this: When it comes to stopping illegal immigration, there’s little that the Forsyth County commissioners can do. But that hasn’t stopped them from arguing about it. A one-page proposal on immigration that surfaced last week, which…

  • Picking and choosing

    While I was pleasantly surprised to see that the N&R didn’t endorse every bond proposal, I’ll admit I was surprised that the paper’s editorial board left the Greensboro Historical Museum to fend for itself: Greensboro’s view of its past has grown stale and confined, prompting a push to modernize…
