In a district where the voting population leans to the right, the Republican primary for NC Senate District 27 representing rural Guilford County is expected to determine the winner of the general election.

It`s no accident that visitors and residents alike confuse the new Guilford County Detention Center for a benign commercial development downtown — my roommate asked if I had seen the new apartment complex on Edgeworth Street and Sheriff BJ Barnes said it was specifically designed to look more like a hospital.

Give me a break. “Greed” means you want more for yourself. Fine. If you obtain it legally, without force or privilege — say, by buying a business and making it more efficient, or shifting resources to where consumers prefer them — that is a good thing. “Creative destruction” makes America richer.

President Barack Obama’s energy plan involves radically increasing gas prices to the European rate of about $10 a gallon. And he’s well on his way, as gas prices have more than doubled since he took office in January 2009, when gasoline was only $1.79 per gallon.

The article claims that the Greensboro Police Dept. knew that a package containing 30 pounds of marijuana was mailed to the Beloved Community Center, and that somehow it was still delivered.

Joined by the beautiful princess Dejah Thoris (the beautiful Lynn Collins), our brawny hero embarks on an otherworldly adventure that begins with some semblance of promise before collapsing under its own weight.

The student health plan at Georgetown, incidentally, is about $1,900 per semester — more than $5,500 for a student and a spouse together, which makes absolutely no sense to me, but little in our nation’s healthcare system does.
