I'm appreciating Matt Hill's comments about feeling left behind by the Democratic party, but you don't have to be gay to feel that way, Certainly not here in North Carolina, where the main difference between Democrats and Republicans seems to be which industry they're beholden to. I'm sure there are some great people somewhere down there in NC House and Senate, but the leadership in both parties gives me the creeps. With Art Pope owning a solid core of right wing wackos and Jim Black trafficing in favors among favors, it's hard to stomach sometimes.
Do you have a Senator or Representative in the NC legislature that you're particularly proud of?
I'd really like to know who the next generation of leaders will be, because from where I sit, it's not very encouraging.
PS Is anyone going to attend this meeting? I hate meetings, but . . .
