Re: “The Myth of Gender

I'm sure you will get blow back from this as it doesn't match the 'Genesis story' be damned...

Re: “Do black candidates matter to North Carolina Democrats?

Debates are always a good idea. More importantly, I would encourage candidates to use social media. Cooper is all over it every day. I've only seen a few Chris Rey posts from supporters...absolutely nothing from Spaulding who's been out there for a year. People may or may not tune in to local/state debates, but in this era, much of our information and opinion comes from our daily attention to Facebook, etc.

Re: “A voting scheme in Watauga County presages future challenges

Excellent summary. I wish more citizens paid attention to the insidious network of moves Republicans have made to sew up Republican 'wins' and the Republican agenda. Particularly in the judicial races, voter disinterest/ignorance will defeat the Democrats. Most people think of judges races as electing judges for courtrooms and criminals...not something that will ever affect them. Many may just vote for the first name in each category on the ballot since they have done no 'homework'. But even this favors Republican candidates who have been listed first. Big money will certainly have an effect on the races. Use neutral voting guides such as newspapers (voter guides, not necessarily newspaper endorsements) or voter guides provided by the Board of Elections to help you compare candidates.

Re: “Why Wake County Judge Abe Jones lost

Maybe Judge Stephens meant ""It's really CRAP" because it certainly is. This is not the Judge Jones we know.Graduating in the top of his class at Enloe then Harvard College, then Harvard Law School, appointed to the U.S. Attorney's Office and then the Superior Court by Governor Hunt, 17 years of service on the bench...that doesn't happen without a very strong work ethic.Judge Jones is known for always asking "do you have anything else for me?" before leaving the bench each day.He's taken cases for other judges. Let's face it - this was a personal vendetta against Judge Jones. Judge Stephens got what he wanted, but a bully just can't resist stomping his victim one more time...pathetic! Judge Jones is a survivor. He ran a positive campaign and those who know him wish him only the best. As for Judge Stephens...
