Garland, we hardly knew ye.

  Just like the month of March,  the rich guy from Raleigh came onto the scene like a lion, but left quietly like a lamb.   Garland Tucker had quite a story to tell — a successful businessman not unlike our current president.  A background…

Oh, Hell. Dallas is BACK.

    Well, that didn’t take long, now, did it?     The notorious Dallas Woodhouse,  he with the indicted grandpa,  has been spotted during the last few days within the deepest darkest quadrants of the NCGOP offices in Raleigh.   Immediately, it was assumed…

Caught giving $$$ to Obama, Adam Schiff? Man Up, and blame it all on the women in your life.

    That’s the path nominal Republican Arthur Donadio —  lame duck incumbent DA Maureen Krueger’s hand picked successor — appears to have taken.  And his “explanation” appears to raise  more questions than it answers:     In 2012,  Barack Obama was running for president….
