North Carolina is back on the front page of the New York Times this morning, in a story  with the headline “North Carolinians Fear the End of a Middle Way”
That is putting it mildly. The story includes an interesting take on the General Assembly by News & Record columnist Doug Clark.
Doug Clark, a columnist for The News and Record of Greensboro, welcomed the partisan change, but he now sees the state’s Republican leadership as fostering “extreme partisanship and abuse of power.” He questioned why the legislature, after passing laws governing abortion, guns and voter identification, and frequently trying to exert control over issues traditionally left to local governments, never got around to passing the governor’s plan to overhaul job recruiting.
