After raising expectations that he'd announce plans for re-opening North Carolina schools, Governor Roy Cooper punted yesterday. He said he'd need a few more weeks to decide. Meanwhile, he urged us all help reduce the spread of the virus (as if we didn't see super-spreading mass gatherings over the last month).

Yes, it was embarrassing for President Trump to endorse Lynda Bennett only to see her lose. No, it doesn't mean voters are abandoning Trump. It's this same distorted lens through which the media gazes that has so undermined our response to the coronavirus.

In what is being described as a "clever" ruling from Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch, a lot of people are getting exactly what they wanted -- inclusion of sexual orientation and gender identity in the 1964 Civil Right Act. But what ELSE did the ruling do? Some folks might not be so happy down the road.

Cooper recommended yesterday that everyone who marched over the past 10 days be tested, he had not been tested himself.
