Rob Christensen worried in his Feb. 26 column “N.C.’s brand changing for the worse” that HB2 will taint North Carolina’s history unless “the courts strike it down, or a compromise can be found.”
Both sides are dug in. If the courts strike down HB2, we may retain a stigma – as sore losers, like the states where segregationist governors stood in the schoolhouse door until federal troops arrived.
If a compromise can be found, though, we will prove that we can govern ourselves. That would be better.
