April showers bring May flowers in some cooler climes, I guess, but in Greensboro we're well past rough winds and darling buds. March does sometimes go out like a golden retriever.

Hoggard runs into Howard Coble on the street.

Taken aback, I questioned his response, "I'm in favor of stopping fraudulent bankruptcies too, but I really don't think there is any such accomodation in the current legislation, Congressman.  I'd appreciated you checking on that."  "I will, good to see you", he replied as we parted.  "Thank you, Howard," I said as I started walking down Bellemeade St. 

But after a few seconds of both of us going our separate ways, he stopped and added this, "David, I'm probably going to vote for the bill in either case."

How do you spell "hypocrite?"

"I believe that visitation rights, health care benefits and other human relationship contracts that are taken for granted by all married people should be available to partners," he said.

"But I am willing to cash the checks of people who will work tirelessly to ensure that such benefits are not available in much of the country, and that people who seek them shall be demonized," he should have continued.

Media Drop: "(A)s many as 6,000 copies of this Tuesday's Daily Tar Heel, the student newspaper of the University of North Carolina, have gone missing - that issue contained news and photographs of the NCAA national championship that the UNC Tar Heels won in men's basketball the night before. The newspaper, which is distributed at no cost to the reader, has shown up in various places for sale - like eBay."

And don't tell me stealing is OK when Raymond Felton does it, that's not the same thing.
