Pat McCrory is being demonized for threatening to close the Vance Birthplace. Isn’t it funny how we always hear about kids starving, kids being left at the mercy of drug dealers, teachers and policemen getting laid off, schools crumbling, etc. during budget time. But this time, when the governor proposes closing down landmarks, nobody is thanking him for not kicking the children into the wild – cold, naked, hungry, and devoid of diversity training – to fend for themselves.
