Our society values people with money over others

Subject: that sounds iffy

Hey there mysterious poster. I think your right, our society values people with money over others. However, I also think part of what you said is racist. Why point out that the Hispanic sounding man and business as some sort of racial privilege? Why is anything you were talking about about race?
Also, why is his race assumed to be the culprit, but in your example of Piedmont Biofuels Lyle’s whiteness is not addressed?

No hard feelings, really! But things like this are important to pay attention to.

Glad to hear Vance at Pittsboro General Store Cafe seeking feedback

From: Carol Taylor
Subject: Vance’s letter re: GSC

Ok Chatlisters.  Vance has heard your complaints and asked for some  feedback from everyone to help him make this great downtown  institution  a better, newer GSC.

Now is the time to help a  longtime and very generous Chatham business  owner keep his business going.

I, for one, applaud Vance for stepping up to the plate and publicly  asking his fellow Chatham citizens to come in, sit down and talk to  him.  What more can we ask for?

Chicken Little is concerned about sky falling

Subject: Chicken Little

If people would do 5 minutes of reasearch, or just watch the local evening news occaisionally, there would be a lot less claims of the sky falling.

FORT BRAGG, N.C. The Marine Corps is using Fort Bragg’s wide open spaces to practice with their big guns.

The Fayetteville Observer reports that starting Monday the 10th Marine Division will be at Fort Bragg for three weeks for artillery training. The Marines are there to fire their 155 mm guns, which the Army base near Fayetteville says means neighbors are in store for loud explosions and echoes.

My take on the Pittsboro General Store Cafe

From: Lee – Computer Therapy, Inc
Subject: My take on General Store Cafe

My family are long-time customers of the GSC.  Yes sometimes the service is slower than we might like, but consider that the management needs to schedule the wait staff based on an unknown number of customers.  In order to keep the GSC as profitable as possible, then they cannot afford to have wait staff just standing around.
