Local Observations

Durham, NC

K&L is helping Durham Rescue Mission with its plans to expand in a way that will close 2 through-streets in an area of town where increased connectivity had been helping with a long, slow recovery -- thus aiding the reversal of that progress. See Endangered Durham for details.

Conclusions: At first glance, this seems like a very evil company; they're consistently on the wrong side of many significant local land-use disputes, and are aligned with some of the worst influences in Durham politics (most notably the misnamed Friends of Durham). I haven't known of their existence long enough yet for a second glance, nor do I know much about their activities outside of the Triangle area. --Woozle 02:28, 22 January 2011 (UTC)
