Where will you be?

I have been hearing about a lot of inauguration-related activities going on this weekend and through Tuesday. I'd rather not have them clog up the calendar, but I thought it would be helpful to list them all in one place. Here's what I know about so far, please post additional events and let us know how you're observing this landmark event.

Public Forum on Analysis of the 2008 Election

The Orange County Democratic Women and the Orange County Democratic Party are sponsoring a Public Forum on Analysis of the 2008 Election on Thursday, November 20, 7:30 pm at the Century Center in Carrboro.  Hodding Carter III, Ferrel Guillory, and Rob Christiansen will be the panel. 


Thursday, November 20, 2008 - 2:30pm to 4:00pm

Local results

It seems quite likely that North Carolina could face a recount, so these numbers may change. (And they are never considered truly "final" until certified by the Board of Elections anyway.) But here's how Orange County voted, according to the NC Board of Elections, so far. I don't think any adjustments will change the outcome of these very decisive local races.

A Veterans Responsibility

I suppose I should first say I like many of my fellow veterans and many returning veterans now suffer as does our Senator McCain with the curse of PTSD.   Why is it a curse?   It’s sometimes difficult to maintain an even keel...sometimes life gets too difficult.   But while I am lucid let me say.   It is my fervent hope that citizens of North Carolina honour the Veterans and their contributions to our freedoms on Tuesday, November 4, 2008.   What does November 4th have to do with honouring our Veterans?   First, the obvious that our veterans, retirees, and active duty service men and women have met and are meeting their responsibilities as citizens of this state and country.   Second, this same group represents approximately 10% of the population of this state and as such have a duty to act responsibly and vote!   Third, each member of this group must recognize their responsibility to the group and ignore the racial, prejudicial, and ignorant remarks of some of our fellow citizens and vote for the candidate each of us feels in our heart will be best for our country.
