We’re outnumbered and outwitted

T.S. Eliot said, in “The Hollow Men,” that “this is the way the world ends/not with a bang but a whimper.”
Maybe 2013 might shape up as a micro-example of that for Kristi and me.
We knew as long ago as 2007 that it might go down this way. That is when Child #3 came along, and we found ourselves outnumbered. As we told many people, we went from playing man-to-man to playing a zone.

The weather certainly cooperated for Spring Hope’s Pumpkin Festival this year but I think it cooperated a little too much.

Reader responds to NC Attorney General

Don’t know why it hasn’t been said before now, but it’s time for North Carolina’s Attorney General, Roy Cooper to step aside and pursue his personal objectives in other venues.
As the state’s top cop, it is his job to enforce our laws without prejudice. His lack of professionalism regarding the recently enacted election law reforms make it impossible for his office to defend the state law in federal court.
