Cue scene from The Hunger Games: “Welcome! Welcome, welcome. Happy Hunger Games, and may the odds be ever in your favor. Now, before we begin, we have a very special film brought to you all the way from the Capitol”:
The Raleigh Agenda reported late yesterday that the Department of Administration lobby had received a makeover. The McCrory administration had swapped out posters of films made in North Carolina with a poster of the governor touting his role, such that it was, in raising salaries for public school teachers.
The post, by Grayson Haver Currin (full disclosure, a former colleague of mine), went on to point out the irony that the state’s film industry — which includes hundreds of movies and TV shows, including Dirty Dancing, The Hunger Games and Homeland — was essentially dismantled by the McCrory administration and the GOP lawmakers.
It’s worth reading RA’s entire post.
