    streetglide/ I doubt that any of the people mentioned in your comment will see the photos. If they ever had possession of a computer, they sold it out of the trunk of a car before they were caught with it.

    Durham-again-go figure!! And they continue to elect the same crooks to City Council-over and over!! And MAyor Bell-how many years as Mayor of Durham???

    New blood on Council might serve to toughen Durham towards crime.

    And where is Rev Barbour??? I'm sure he will have time to be in the spotlights next week in Charlotte!
