He wasn't brandishing this time?

Tony Wilkins

Theresa Yon to run for Greensboro City Council At-Large?

Roch101

Does Danny have a website? Can't find it with a search.

Ed Cone

I think he means his campaign website, which I'm guess he'll fire up soon.

Ed, you had the chicken, right?

Ed Cone

Despite a recent predilection for sliced, I went with the regular chopped plate. I did have chicken on my previous visit.

Joe Killian

It would have been funny (to me, at least) if you'd convinced him to go to Sushi Republic.

Ed Cone

Just got back from dinner at the Sushi Republic on Market, which has a great new tapas style menu. Highly recommended.

Craftyboro

Danny is at large so you can eat anywhere!

Joe, Fried Sushi, aka Libby Hill?

Ed: "Saying the landfill should never have been closed is like complaining about the weather. The landfill was closed."

So questioning the judgement of our "political leaders" based on past performance is unacceptable?

Ed Cone

No, in fact the judgments of the time should be evaluated, instead of merely dismissed.

But the reality is that the change was made, and it lasted long enough to become the new normal for a community, and that reality should be acknowledged and dealt with instead of just written off.

Billy Jones

But how can we evaluate judgements of the time without acknowledging the closing of the landfill might have been a mistake?

"But the reality is that the change was made, and it lasted long enough to become the new normal for a community, and that reality should be acknowledged and dealt with instead of just written off."

Being the new normal doesn't make it right. It's normal for some people to kill people daily but we agree that killing people is seldom right. It's normal for people to behave with prejudice but being normal doesn't make prejudice any better. How can acting as if there never was a White Street Landfill truthfully be a part of an open and honest evaluation?
