Letters to the Editor

John McNeill: Real pope remains

I, for one, am glad that Art Pope has stepped down as state budget director, but not for any political reasons. No, I am glad that I will now be less confused by N&O headlines stating “Pope said ...,” Pope declares ...,” “Pope does (this),” “Pope does (that),” “Pope steps down” and so on.

When you printed those headlines, you meant Art. I was thinking Francis. Talk about confusion! Goodbye, Art. No hard feelings.

John McNeill, Cary
