Folks in the know tell me we should be hearing something from the US Supremes on Tuesday.  (But who knows how the passing of Justice Scalia will affect that timetable.) 

How HARD is it come up with counties that actually have interests in common?  I mean, Wilmington AND Smithfield ???  The Triad AND the northwestern mountains? Down-east AND the Triangle?  (Seriously?)

Many of our districts were drawn to benefit certain pols.  Representation for communities and regions was a distant afterthought.  

Though, this should have been dealt with well before NOW.   

A March primary vote for the US House is looking less and less likely.  Blame the “honorables” on BOTH SIDES of the aisle for this.
