Tomorrow will be the last day I receive the Charlotte Observer at home after nearly 14 years. I decided if the Charlotte Observer is going to reduce itself to being a liberal blog, I'll just read it online like I do ProgressNC, BlueNC, and the like. They are all kind of like road kill. You try not to look at, you do anyway, then you regret it.
When it comes to all things progressive, 2011 pretty much sucked. Tea Party Republicans went on a rampage, with business interests and religious fanatics taking the public agenda in a stranglehold. Decades of North Carolina progress swirled down the toilet in a single legislative session under Thom Tillis' leadership. Will 2012 be more of the same? Not if we can help it.
