KING Arthur for, um — Moore / Hoke District Attorney ???

      I had always thought fantasy role-playing (in public) was an activity reserved mainly for young children, as well as high school and college students who can’t get dates.  Apparently, there are tens of thousands of people nationwide actively pretending to be  living…

Does Dale Folwell owe you money?

  (Or, more likely, someone else?)   The treasurer’s office maintains a “found money” database of funds that are trying to be reunited with their actual owners. Of course, you have to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that it IS actually owed to YOU.  …

Jones Street. The partisan index. And 2020.

  The North Carolina Free Enterprise Foundation, a GOP-leaning establishment pro-business group,  regularly analyzes our General Assembly districts and computes things called partisan indexes.  These are sort of like the spreads that bookies put on sporting events.

ANOTHER Confederate monument taken down. (*Everybody feeling better?*)

  Well,  a monument to the Confederate dead of Chatham County has been taken down.  It’s yet another front in  the leftists’ violence-plagued attack on our history and culture.   Chatham County has pretty much been taken over by spillover from Orange County (Chapel Hill…

Folwell to Cooper: Fire your DOT secretary!

      This sounds like something that ought to be coming from the state’s alleged conservative party (if they had a communications office worth a damn) or from someone trying to establish himself as North Carolina’s conservative leader and take Roy Cooper’s job (looking…
