Bodie McCann: A toast to tyrants

A toast to tyrants

Perhaps it is time to revise the first verse of our N.C. State Toast:

Please save the land of the long leaf pine,

The summer land where the sun doth shine,

Where the elect become tyrants, our progress negate.

Protect us “Down Home” in the Old North State!
