Walter Whitaker: No tee time

March 18, 2013 

No tee time

Isn’t it wonderful that we so easily lose over 1,000 workers in Raeford and Eastern North Carolina without any, to my knowledge, news conferences from the governor or CEOs. The state did not have to spend any incentive dollars, either.

The people who will be hired by MetLife, in all probability, already are employed, but these poor turkey farmers are deeper in the poor row.

I really feel sorry for them, but I have to run. Got to get over to Cary for my 11 o’clock tee time.
