Perusing today's papers, I found two interesting links that readers might want to check out:
1) The Winston-Salem Journal does an interesting roundup of recent clashes between branches of the North Carolina government and how separation of powers is working here. The article includes a brief summary of an action to invalidate the state's recent lottery.
2) The N&O has an article that begins:
Like country singer Tammy Wynette, North Carolina House Democrats are standing by their man.
And concludes that Jim Black is staying in power despite all of his recent troubles here. I was previously saying that Jim Black must go, but you cannot argue with country music.
