    Limeyrider contrary to popular belief people get shot in Raleigh, Chapel Hill and even God forbid good ole Cary; however it only makes news when it happens in Durham. Get your head out of you tail so your brain can breath.

    You know, this headline, "Durham police investigate shooting" does NOT need to be a 'news item.' IT NEEDS TO BE A PERMANENT FEATURE AT THE TOP OF THE WEB PAGE. The idea that a shooting in Durham is 'news' in any way is absolutely ludicrous. On the contrary, it is a quite commonplace occurrence.
