To begin with, this has been a WILD DAY of getting my ever-changing household into shape -- and I got my car DETAILED (inside), to boot.
"History" is happening so quickly that I can't really keep up (or so it feels in this moment of low energy for writing), so this posting will PRIMARY be of reposted materials, some of which I recently posted elsewhere.
Let's see what sort of Keyword Searches are ON TOP for leading people to this blog:
Joni Mitchell is a Canadian singer, important in the 1970s, Judge Jeffrey Noecker (Democrat), was until recently, a Deacon in the Kenan Cathedral of White Supremacy and Narco-Trafficking catercorner across the street from my apartment, aka "First Presbyterian": http://www.firstonthird.org/, Marc Benson ran against Democrat Sheriff Ed McMahon -- and LOST, Steve Bakunas is the rather young husband of Linda Lavin, who was CHASED BACK TO NEW YORK CITY a few years ago by the Christian Drug Mafia living in the William R. Kenan, Sr. House at 110 Nun Street -- which I drove past today and it STILL looks like a "common CRACK HOUSE".
LOTS more info on ALL of these -- if you google for it in this blog.
>>> THAT TYPED, there is some GOOD NEWS for WILMINGTONIANS!!!:
That is current HEAD of the County Commission Beth Dawson (Republican) by podium. It is not CLEAR if she lost her primary battle due to voting MOSTLY with the Democrats (usually the right choice), or because her HUSBAND was arrested in South Carolina last November for SOLICITING PROSTITUTES -- LOL!!!
And Beth Dawson was an ELDER at First Presbyterian -- until this arrest of her husband forced her to resign.
Could Wilmington, North Carolina be making PROGRESS???
The others, all residents of Wilmington, who commented are ALL real people, and people of some accomplishment:
