One small victory…maybe

Mark Binker of the Greensboro News-Record reports this morning that next week’s special session will, apparently, not include any action by lawmakers.

Hmmm. This sounds like good news and a victory for the forces of good. But it does beg at least two questions:

1. Why are the GOP messages still somewhat muddled? (See the article).

2. Why in the heck did Tillis and Berger put everyone through this in the first place?

    Because they got caught! When enough of us demand open and transparent democracy, and vote to ensure it, it will happen. Right now, the Tom & Phil show is responding to some criticism of lack of transparency. They’ll do so, only as long as they perceive that no one is minding the store, and then, back to the usual suspects.
