One Step Forward…

North Carolina may have made the Times this morning, but we’ll see be all over the news for something else: strange threats against a presidential candidate. I suppose a dead bear cub isn’t exactly a threat, but it’s menacing when it’s wrapped in signs with someone’s name on them. Officials at Western Carolina University got the message this morning when they found a black bear cub corspe in front of the administration building. The cub had been shot in the head which was covered with Obama yard signs. Sigh.

We may finally be a contested state, after all these years of waiting, and, no matter what, a woman will continue to hold Jesse’s Senate seat, but let’s not move on too fast. There’s still plenty of backward around these parts, even if our McCain/Palin rallies have been on the polite side (for them). Sick, weird, intimidating behavior is apparently part of the fervor around this election. Whichever party wins the presidential election, history will be made. Maybe that’s more excitement than some people can bear (oooh, that was bad!). It would be great if we could get through these last couple of weeks civilly, agreeing to disagree with people who will be voting for the other side. I guess that’s too much to hope. I guess I should just hope that all the candidates get through these final days. Kind of takes away from the momentum, doesn’t it? For everyone? Let’s all leave the wildlife alone and stick to the issues that matter to us. November 4 is almost here.
