Two anecdotes: 1. from the Raleigh News&Observer June 5: "Catchy Tune .... I really had to laugh when I read "Revved up Republicans ready to rumble" June 3. Did they really play The Who's song "Won't Get Fooled Again"? Do they know all the lyrics? "Meet the new boss--same as the old boss." Great campaign slogan. 2. North Carolina is planning it's coastal development for the next 100 years and is quite concerned about global warming and the forecast that water levels will rise about 3 feet. The state Republicans passed a measure that coastal planning should be based on water levels of the PAST 100 years where the water level has gone up 8 inches. In essence, they have made global warming illegal.
