Pat McCrory 2It’s good to know that while things are going to hell in a handbasket during the busiest time of the year in the state capital, North Carolina’s fearless leader will be right in the mix doing what he almost always does on Friday — scheduling “official” events in Charlotte so that he can spend the weekend in his actual home.
