I love to read letters applauding Roy Cooper who, in all his elitist progressive wisdom, decides unilaterally that he knows better than hundreds of thousands of N.C. residents. It seems remarkable that these folks are so willing to cede their freedom (and mine) to elected officials.

I suppose these people are looking for a benevolent strong man to bless us all with his wisdom. Heaven forfend that this should ever occur.
