Wow, I don't want people like you in Durham either.

Good. It all works out for both of us. I'll stay where it's safe. You stay where the gunshots are and keep those people there.

The ability to read peoples minds, knowing their secret wishes, is a powerful ability. I hope you use it wisely.

Places are improved by the people they have and often times by the people they don't have.

Sure. Making blanket statements, like yours, only makes all of us (RTP) look bad.

Then again, maybe you can scare off some more people interested in moving here.

Not saying they are not within a few blocks of your place, but how do you know for sure? Gun shots, carry very far in open areas. Even in woods, etc.

Is this post serious? If so, you need help. I grew up in Cary and bought a house in Durham, oh god I wish I wouldn't have . I love where I live and do not secretly wish I wouldn't have bought here. I have lived in the area for over 25 years. The ignorance of some are amazing.

I see what you have in your status message, but really, you don't always have to come right out and say it.

OK, I am no expert, but it sounded like it was right here.

I wouldn't exactly call Raleigh "safe". 163 murders from '99 through '07.

The fact of the matter is people who live in Durham and people who live in Raleigh have to deal with gunshots and elevated crime on a regular basis. Welcome to city life. The crime in BOTH cities is higher than the surrounding suburbs. For some people, the high crime is not an issue. For others, it is the major factor for not living in either place. Everyone has a different comfort level.

The Southpoint area is one of the safest places in Durham. Then again, that is relative.
