The April 30 editorial page might have been the best summary of the state of North Carolina. On one side, you make a spurious argument in your “ Roll ’em, yes” editorial that we should subsidize the film industry to provide short-term, temporary spending and jobs to enrich a few. Not really the “happy ending” you suggest.
On the opposite page, in the Point of View piece “ When teachers run out of patience,” a teacher clearly describes the awful treatment we dish out to our teachers and students: no raises, more students per teacher, less support.
The values of our state leaders couldn’t be more clearly evident.
