- New Elon poll: Black inspires little confidence; gas tax ought to simmah down now, and:
Nearly 79 percent of those polled agreed or strongly agreed that the minimum wage in North Carolina should be raised. Of this group, 45 percent wanted raised from $5.15 per hour to more than $6.50, while another 25 percent picked $6.50. Legislation pending in the General Assembly would raise the minimum to $6.
- The campaign finance reforms that Black proposed to make what Black did illegal continue to wind their merry way through the house.
- Newsflash! Global warming and living on a giant sandbar don't mix!
- Say this out loud: "North Carolina is a progressive example for those in other states who would defend the common good." Sounds good, eh?
