It's been a grim morning's worth of news from around the state and around the world. A fine mess we've gotten ourselves into. And by "we" I mean specifically the male of our species. So would it be too much to ask for women to take over for awhile? They may not be any better at running things, but they sure as hell can't be worse.
Carolina News 14 has this report today.
Women are playing a more prominent role in state politics too. Thirty-nine members of North Carolina's 170-member General Assembly are women. Four out of the nine state council positions are held by women, including lieutenant governor.
Thirty-nine out of 170? That pretty much sucks as far as I'm concerned. And I've written a whole column on this subject which will appear in an upcoming edition of the Chapel Hill News to coincide with Women's History Month. As soon as it's published, I'll pass it along.
