As a moderate I am certainly disappointed with our choices for president of the United States. Trump’s tweets and methods of governing certainly do not resonate with me.

Yet, on the Democratic side there is no moderate candidate left. Reps. John Delaney and Tim Ryan both defended capitalism…

Another report of a man being robbed at gunpoint. The time was 2:20 a.m. So I can mark myself safe from armed robbers at 2:20 a.m. unless they break into by bedroom. And even then I am not too worried as my wife, Dancin' Darla, is about 265 pounds and the meanest woman in Pitt County. So mark me…

Saturday, I came full circle.

I had the opportunity to sit in the new press box at East Carolina's Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium and my thoughts were “how much this has changed since I first sat in one on this field.”
