Re: “In the Obama-Romney debate, echoes of George McGovern

It is hopeful that Gov. Romney is generally agreeing with President Obama that the time for military misadventures abroad are over. Can we believe him? Not sure, at all. But it is a time for this country to bring our guys and gals home and begin anew to build up our country internally. Our inherent strength as a nation comes from our expressed freedoms and highly effective economic engine. America is the beacon for the world, all the more when we stick to the best we can be, not to something less. With gratitude to the governor if he is, indeed, deciding he would govern more from the center than he has said he would do, it is still critical to the future of our country that it stays in the steady hands of President Obama, who has the right vision to guide America onward for the next four years.

Re: “Charles Malone

I filled out the questionnaire in April and now it's October, 2010, and I've since won the Democratic nomination in May (unopposed) and have been endorsed by EqualityNC, AFL-CIO, and the NCAE (teachers). I continue to run on strong desire to see environmental justice, social justice, job creation and restoration of credit, and a commitment to a "kitchen table" approach to solving problems and working for ethical and open leadership. I will work with all factions to find fair and just solutions, including helping all I can on the Wake School Board fiasco. I am not the incumbent and will bring a fresh approach to public service, borne from a lifetime as one of you, not of them. Thanks.

Re: “Pro-diversity prayer meeting slated at Pullen Baptist Monday night

It is good to see the left publicly seeking prayer to help them seek social justice. I've grown tired of seeing the people who are on the wrong side of the issue be the only one's inspired by their dedication to a higher power. Now, the people who are right will be strengthened as well, as they draw on prayer to give them even better focus and direction. It is a win-win situation, for sure.

Re: “Mental health advocates demand WakeMed provide psychiatric beds

As stated, "the problem is that none of Wake County's three medical/surgical hospitalsWakeMed, Rex and Duke Raleighhas a designated psychiatric unit and thus can't accept patients who are on Medicaid." This organizational flaw should be changed before anything else, for the patient availability at Dix will be unstable for a long time.

Wake Med is outstanding because of it commitment to treating illnesses of all stripes, patient ability to pay notwithstanding. Yet, this change to officially organize under a new name, instead of treating the mentally ill within the present framework is self-defeating, and is denying a best methods approach to serving the mentally ill who need hospital care.

As a candidate for the NC Senate, Dist. 15 (North Raleigh and Wake Forest) in 2010, I will do all I can to advance this approach to the problem.
