Re: “Tech Park board talks Phase 2, wants more info

And just how long have they been working on this? Feels like it began sometime in the last century.

Re: “Webb Hubbell: A North Carolina 'influencer'

Found is his first book (biography) fascinating. Webb has always had a huge mouth physically. Most memorable passage in his book was when he overheard his dad telling a neighbor that Webb had n_gg_r lips. That's bound to have had some kind of psychological effect.

Re: “Corruption in Arkansas open line

You know, there's a limited and finite pool of folks who want to serve, and choose to run for state office to do good and work to make the state a better place for all of us. And when you keep running through them via term limits, you begin dipping in the the bigger pool of less righteous folk...and, unfortunately, that's where we are now. Yes, I'm fully aware you had your Nick Wilsons, the corrupt Sec. of State, whose name I forget, back before TL's. But the infestation of snakes was not nearly as intense as now, after 2 or 3 decades of automatically kicking out good people when there time was up. Let's do away with term limits. And, thanks to commission camouflaged self-dealing, legislative salaries should now be high enough to maybe attract some genuine service motivated young people to the Capitol.

Re: “Special prosecutor to review wire transfer to former senator by nursing home owner

"This case is already being made an issue by those opposing Issue 1 to limit lawsuits, which is backed by nursing homes, doctors and chambers of commerce."

And rightly so. Issue one is one of the most horrendous power grab attempts ever offered by a legislative body.

Re: “Honk if you think women are sentient beings

My hats off to these women's and men's bravery. Wife and I stood in a pro-choice street corner rally once. A guy in a pickup drove by cursing us, face beet red, veins popping out of his neck. I had the strange fear he was going to come back with a loaded weapon. Fortunately, that did not happen. And all this was years before Trump. Way more dangerous today.

Re: “Another one: Leslie Rutledge rejects proposed ballot initiative for casinos in four counties

This is clearly dereliction of duty. Can she be impeached?
