The law is the law, regardless of politics

I am probably in the Guinness Book of Records for having committed the highest number of stupid acts. Not proud of that. At some point in time, I may have written a stupid column.
Stupid happens in the absence of critical thinking. I know it, you know it, and the American people know it.
The NC legislature apparently escaped a degree of stupidity by not passing an act that was designed purely to create political capital for specific legislators.

Nash County Animal Friends' Notebook

Wouldn't it be nice instead of raining cats and dogs, it would rain dollars? It DOES make a difference when you donate. It is what helps us to keep offering spay/neuter to adopters. It is what encourages Rescues.
So many Southern dogs have heartworms and Rescues end up having so many being treated that they cannot afford more, even if they have the space. If we can help with the upfront financial vetting burden, more lives can be saved.

CLASSIC CONTEST

RED OAK -- Scoring wasn't in abundant quality when Northern Nash and Nash Central met for the first time this spring earlier this month in girls soccer action.
That tight matchup when Northern's way as the Lady Knights mustered two goals, compared to just one for Central.
Things looked to be headed in a similar direction during the early portion of last Wednesday's Big East Conference rematch at the NNHS Soccer Complex.
Northern Nash's Zion King, playing one of the best matches of her young career, worked through the Central defense with a strong push at the 31:25 mark -- and found the back of the net to give the Lady Knights an early advantage.
