Currently, the shame of North Carolina is not the statue of a Confederate solder that stood, until quite recently, in a prominant place on the UNC Chapel Hill campus. It is that the 2020 Republican National Convention is scheduled for late August in the city of Charlotte.
Desperate for the cheers of the masses, Donald Trump has threatened our Democratic governor, Roy Cooper, with relocating the convention unless Cooper permits full attendance without pesky Covid restraints.
Could we be so fortunate? Is there, after all, a benign and loving God?
Be still, my heart. Be strong, my Governor, be strong.
