Given President Obama’s visit here today, this is a timely and well-put rant from a North Carolina Democrat:   “The head of the DNC - Florida Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz - attributed last night’s staggering loss in New Yorks’ 9th CD to ‘a large

Ted Vaden, Deputy Secretary, Internal and External Affairs N.C. Department of Transportation, responds to my criticism of DOT’s 511 line and website during Irene:   “We’re big boys and girls at NCDOT, and we’ll take our hits when deserved. Certainly
