Thank you, Dale. So far, the feedback has been very positive. The theme of "municipal rape" resonated on a very personal level.

Of course, you won't see one word about what I said about Morrison in either local newspaper. The Courer quoted me but it didn't quote me. They're still sucking up to . . . and covering up for . . . Randolph.

It smells.

I've been having trouble with Blogger for a while - especially with the composition template. Lots of issues with paragraph spacing and the spell-checker - and actually losing stuff I've written when I hit "post". Very frustrating. And then people tell me they cannot post. I dunno what it's about.

I apologize for any difficulty you've had. And thanks again.

I commented earlier but it didn't post (few do, for some reason). I thought your speech was eloquent and your points well made.

Thank you Dallas. It felt very good.

My "ex" went back inside after I left, and he stayed until the bitter end . . . when Dave's Mtn residents walked out on Mayor Jarrell as he wrapped up the public hearing.

I've got to say, I'm profoundly disappointed in this Mayor. When he was elected, I thought he was his own man - and would bring something new & different to the table. Alas, I was wrong.

Tim said that the folks he spoke with afterwards were generally supportive - although it was quite a bit for some of them to take in at one sitting. I think I did a fairly good job of summarizing a hellish 10 year ordeal in five minutes. And I suppose I should thank Ed Cone for all of the practice in trying to turn this story into a "sound bite" suitable for those journalistic types with very short attention spans.

Or maybe not;)

One resident opined that perhpas I should not have included so much "personal stuff" in my presentation. Of course, he's entitled to his opinion (kind of the point of a public hearing). But I thought sharing my previous experience with Asheboro's "City Fathers" simply carried Gloria McClanahan's theme of "municipal rape" one step further . . . sharing one woman's pain and rage.

I know a lot about rape.

BTW, I was wearing Daddy's Boston Red Sox hat. I've been having a lot of bad hair days lately.

I've already won. I can see the light of a clear blue morning.

That's what happens when you face the bad guys down.

Dang, I would have loved to have been there for that. I would have jumped up and shouted, probably more than once during your presentation. Now, your work has just begun for those who "laughed" as you spoke, shook their heads in wonder that you even "dared" show up in Asheboro to question their great G-d almighty decision will be waiting to see if you are still "mad as hell" and will refuse to take it any longer. I am betting that the "good ole boys" club was meeting over "Old Fashions" which probably turned to straight shots as they wondered what they are going to do to rid themselves of the "plague" on their beings.

Youngen, I know somebody that would have been dang proud that night. I know that I dang sure am.

You know, you are going to win!
