It has been a joy to watch The Closer these all too few years, and I can't imagine what could captivate me as a substitute when the run ends after this season. Kyra Sedgwick deserves every kudo she's earned...and more.... Plus, the ensemble she's put together is also sterling. I can't imagine doing anything else at 9 p.m., Mondays.
Thanks, yet again, to Bob Geary, and his fair, but accurate, comprehensive and strong review of the Wake County education mess--published before the well-deserved and embarrassing national TV skewering by satirist Stephen Colbert. Later, in his 1/20 N&O column, Barry Saunders reminds folks who apparently still need it about the 1954 U.S. Supreme Court decision "that separate-but-equal schools were unconstitutional and that they should be desegregated 'with all deliberate speed.'" The Wake County School System and the General (with his SO deficient credentials in his new career of education) must do better for our young than has so far been shown since November.
Thank You, Raleigh, and also those who came from other N.C. communities...and even other states...to stand with you. You put a public face on goodness and strength, just as Elizabeth Edwards did.
Thanks for the great story on another very nice and so talented UNC person. Thanks, too, to the alumni association, Chapel Hill, etc., for recognizing Anoop! The detail about Idol sure was interesting. I can't stand that show--only watched it because Anoop was on it, and I wanted to vote for him. --Ginny
Thanks to The Independent for the thorough questionnaire to the candidates. Perdue's thoughtful, comprehensive and strong answers indicate yet again why she is the stronger candidate for Gov. We appreciate The Independent's endorsement of her along with endorsements by papers in Elizabeth City, Greenville, Southern Pines, Wilmington and Winston-Salem (and perhaps more by now). Hope you'll be writing next that she is our first woman gov., as she was our first woman lieutenant gov. and the first women to be elected to the State House and then Senate from her area of the state (New Bern). She is worthy.
Congratulations to the Indy for the seven diverse and so well-deserved press awards! What a compliment to all of you! Keep up the good work! You ALL are a significant and much appreciated part of the local newspaper scene. Thank you. --Neighbor
