You know, you just can’t take your eyes off the Legislature, not for a minute. Yesterday while everyone was watching the NCDOT traffic cameras to see when I-40 stopped for the Presidential motorcade, your Senate accepted a bill which singles out one group of eastern North Carolina natives as more “deserving” than their peers living in the mountainous west.

Do we take this lying down?

Or do you agree with Senator Purcell that the Venus flytrap, not the mountain sweet pitcher plant, should be the official carnivorous plant to represent the Old North State?

For extra credit, design a state seal incorporating one or both of these emblematic herbs. Designate your choice of departments to be so represented. A special license plate is acceptable.
