Blue Island in a Red State - Ocracoke in NC...just got back from a week
Advertisements [?]
vacation there, pretty much like heaven! There are Kerry Edwards stickers everywhere, anti-Bush stickers everywhere - a refreshing bit of deep, independent thinking, where just across the sound and running westward until hitting parts of Raleigh and most of Durham and Chapel Hill it is very red (though I suspect becoming bluer). Now, if I only didn't have to go back to work tomorrow (I have to admit that spending a week with my wife and dogs, kayaking, reading, taking long walks and getting away from the internet and TV and newspapers was very reenergizing....). So, any big tickets items missed this week...are things still trending the Dems way for the midterms???
