Is the goal to create a migration out of North Carolina to an area where the welfare of the public should be a prime concern? The ideas brought forward are cruel, unjust, and an attack on North Carolina citizens. Only the wealthy, rich political Art Pope followers will benefit from any House or Senate proposals for North Carolina. Perhaps an exit North Carolina agenda is what these criminals truly want. What a shame for this State.
What I dont understand is why the courts did not look at Hobbs he was see with them babys its not fair those boys might as well lost there lifes too well most of it there is not justice for them babys and probably never will
Excellent piece on a very prevalent subject. You explain with such care the ins and outs of a life threatening disease and our society's usual response. Good to hear about someone who was able to take charge of her own end of life, and her family's acceptance of her choice. Thank you!
So, who put the Republicans in charge of the NC Democratic party?
Because if this isn't the case, then someone somewhere has a heck of a lot of 'splainin' to do.
And it can't be the Republicans as they are making asses out of themselves in the General Assembly every day without any help from the Democrats.
Is this what the dumbing down of education has already brought us?
That photo is really disgusting. A coyote? Is that what it is? Shameful.
Better caption: Obama embraces "Hope" and "Change."
extraordinary story Barry- perfect blend of personal story and socio-political context. just great! Made me think a couple times, too (always a plus ;) )
Gee. I guess you don't like Donna the Buffalo too much, eh? Why waste space to trash any band that way? What is the point?
It took me a couple of days to read this magnificent piece, because my eyes would periodically fill with tears (w/out my permission!). After reading the article in full, I want to honor you, Barry Yeoman, for your respect, your sensitivity, your care, your concern, and last-but-not-least your writing talents/skills/dedication-to-your-art as you assisted the Otterbourg family and all those who care for them to tell their truly meaningful story.

I doubt they have heard this - but the chants are pretty similar
where does it state that Solomon Davidson is a known pseudonym of Michael Carmichael? do you have references for this or are you just blowing hot air trying to discredit solid information that he provided?
Making insulting remarks about the citizens you represent isn't the best way to stay in office there Thom.
This was a really well written article Emily. I love your writing style.
@MahaaFoodie: You can also borrow it from your local library, which is free and doesn't involve shilling for corporations.

@ForeThoughts: This story was originally slated for a national publication but it was held for nearly a year before the rights to it were released; it was never published in that publication . So Barry and I agreed that the INDY would be an excellent fit for the piece.
If you can't afford this you can pick up the Kindle edition of the book for $9.18. And you don't need a Kindle, just install the Kindle Reader on Google Chrome.
Just had a friend point me at this story (it's been a busy weekend and I've missed a lot of news). The trip to Vegas certainly smells bad, but if his resume currently includes shoving Bob Etheridge aside, pissing off someone tied to the parties old big donors, and getting the NC Dem consultocracy up in a tizzy, then I raise my glass to him. Whatever his flaws, he must be doing something right.
I am so worried that Moral Mondays will not be effective. The arrests have dropped. If we can't get 150+ arrests every Monday I fear the steam will drain from the movement. What can we do to get the arrests higher?
