    Good luck Kevin the citizens of Durham are like lemmings being led to slaughter by the pied piper. Thankfully I live in Orange Co., but my wife works in downtown Durham a couple days a week and I worry about her safety.

    "The PC police are out in full force this am enforcing their political views at WRAL: Mayor Bell your city is dying while you sit in your ivory tower playing your fiddle."...Can we start a petition to impeach Bill Bell as to where Durham residents' can demand accountability for the vast ineffectiveness of it's government. Durham residents pay more than any of it's neighbors in property taxes, and we DON'T have free bus system like Chapel hill, great roads and schools like Raleigh..instead we have pothole-ridden roads, failing schools and ZERO safety.
    Bill Bell and his failed administration need to go! Durham deserves better!
