Tom Rhodes: Move on, McCrory

February 25, 2014 

I am amazed that Gov. Pat McCrory feels it necessary to take still more time and print space to “set the record straight” about why he complained to a restaurant owner about an exchange he had with one of the shop’s employees.

Most of us have moved on to things like his administration’s soft-pedaling Duke Energy’s Dan River coal ash spill, the N.C. legislature’s denial of Medicaid coverage to more than 100,000 N.C. children and N.C. Department of Health and Human Services’ ongoing inability to carry out basic functions.

Is getting insulted by a cook really the most important thing on McCrory’s agenda?
