On a wing and a beer

I just received an email from Minj Grille owner and superlative wing sauce whipper-upper Niki Hill regarding the N&R’s annual ommission of her establishment from today’s pre-Super Bowl Wings Challenge… Here we go again!!!!  I opened the paper today to see, once again, that Minj Grille was not even contacted about the “Wingding” I have a [...]

So much for communities in schools

Road to the Final Four goes down Lee Street

Chris Daughtry and Athenaum will play a free concert downtown on Friday, March 23rd.   Even though this is a downtown event, it is being staged by Greensboro Coliseum folks.  Dubbed ‘Tournament Town Goes Downtown Block Party”, Coliseum Director Matt Brown says… “…We expect a huge turnout and the Coliseum plans to feature the success [...]

My new ethnic identity

From an old friend back in the Bluegrass State… Just keeping you posted so you will not embarrass yourself. Due to the climate of political correctness now pervading America, those of us in Northern Alabama, North Georgia, Tennessee, North Carolina, Western South Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, and Kentucky will no longer be referred to as “Hillbillies.” You [...]

Here come the Feds

A new development in the Guilford College story: “…the FBI is investigating whether a hate crime occurred on the small Quaker campus.” Update: News14 Carolina - some excellent advice in a joint statement by parents of three of the accused, “… our sons are presumed innocent of these charges and we hope that the community and the [...]

Former City Councilwoman Claudette Burroughs-White is undergoing treatment for esophageal cancer.  Claudette is one of my favorite people in the world. Please hold her in whatever light you deem appropriate.
