Wrapping up the week

Rob Schofield questions the NC Family Policy Council and its political views in his Radical Right Reality Check entitled: ‘Since when is opposing the estate tax a “family value”?‘.

Chris Fitzsimon writes about reactions to the decision by the Board of Community Colleges to allow undocumented students who graduate from North Carolina public schools to continue their education in his column “The Follies of anti-immigrant zealots.” Sadly, several of our state leaders are pandering to the anti-immigrant crowd.
