Durham to Hold "Unity Rally"

May 31, 2005 - In the wake of the cross burnings that marred Durham last week, there is going to be a city-wide Unity Rally on Sunday, June 5th at 4 pm. The location is still being finalized. The rally is being put on by the Durham Human Relations Commission. We'll keep you posted as we learn more details.


May 31, 2005 - We're back from the Memorial Day weekend, luckily without any new cross burnings to report.

Memorial Day

May 27, 2005 - As we sign off the Memorial Day weekend, here's wishing you a good holiday. We also remember the 1,654 U.S. troops and 180 troops from other "coalition" countries killed in the Iraq tragedy, as well as the tens of thousands of Iraqi dead.

A Climate for Cross-Burnings

May 27, 2005 - I made a brief stop at vigil in downtown Durham, site of one of the three cross-burnings that scarred our city Wednesday night (couldn't stay long, the kids were really cranky). Somehow I missed Pam Spaulding, who was also there and gives a good run-down on the vigils here.
