A Hall Of Fame Sucker’s Bet

It’s no secret that Seattle receives more than its fair share of rain, but even so the city’s mayor seems to be displaying a grossly unnatural case of excessive water on the brain. Or maybe it’s too much coffee, resulting in badly jangled nerves and misfired brain synapses that lead a seemingly normal person into […]

CMS Dishing Up Big Bucks For Free Breakfasts

bagel2

The old adage advises that there’s no such thing as a free lunch (or breakfast, in this case), but don’t try telling that to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Board of Education. Not content with the district’s free- and reduced-price meal program, the school board this month approved a new Universal Breakfast initiative that next school year will […]

Saturday Night House Party: NSA Slow Jam Edition

Yes, as several good folks have reminded me, it’s been a while since my last post; apologies for that, but I’ve been time crunched with another big project (book deal – hooray!) that’s kept me wicked busy and frequently on the road. Thanks and big ups go to PH co-conspirator Christian Hine and our stellar […]

Char-Meck Dems In Disarray: Commission Cage Match and City Council Circus; UPDATE ~ New Poll Shows Broad Support For Firing Harry Jones

With solid majorities on the Mecklenburg Board of County Commissioners and the Charlotte City Council, local Democrats should be living high on the hog. They find themselves, instead, floundering in a political pigpen of self-churned mud. After nearly a year of fruitless endeavor and intra-party squabbling, the Democrat-led city council is stuck without a capital […]

Rhino Times Folds Paper; Eyes Internet Future

It’s a sad week for investigative journalism in Greensboro and, no doubt, a joyous one for tax-and-spend government bureaucrats and politicians. After a 21-year run of churning out copy that held the heels of local GovCo to the fire, The Rhinoceros Times has announced it is shuttering the print version of Greensboro’s free alt-weekly paper. […]

The Little Streetcar That Could: Foxx Tapped For Transportation Secretary

foxx

With news that Team BO has cherry picked Mayor Anthony Foxx to be the country’s next transportation secretary, two notions chug down parallel tracks: either the workload of a top-ranking federal bureaucrat is a lot cushier and less demanding than ever imagined possible, or Foxx flat-out lied to his homegrown constituents last month. That’s when […]

Saturday Night House Party: Final Four Edition

A penchant for the underdog, coupled with coach Gregg Marshall’s Winthrop roots, pulls for the Shockers to be cutting down nets come Monday night; reality leans towards Louisville.

Out Foxxed: Mayor Won’t Seek Reelection

No real shocker here. Charlotte Mayor Anthony Foxx, hot on the tails of speculation that he’s been shortlisted for a cabinet position in the Obama Administration, announced today that he isn’t seeking reelection for another term as the Queen City’s majordomo. “As we get older, we remember things shared by our elders when our own […]

Associated Press Goes Full Orwell On Illegal Immigrants

In a gross abuse of dissembling reality, the Associated Press announced today that it has dropped the term “illegal immigrant” used to describe immigrants who have entered the country, um, illegally. The AP defends the linguist twist as being part of the journalistic junta’s efforts to scrub labels from its Stylebook and better align with […]
