But here is one:
This is in no way a political decision. I simply do not feel it is appropriate to honor a person whose epitaph of government service was to have voted against or blocked every civil rights issue that came before the US Congress. His doctrine of negativity, hate, and prejudice cost North Carolina and our Nation much that we may never regain.
Mr. Eason, I want to say that I wish more public servants had your moral clarity and strength of conviction. North Carolina is poorer for having lost you.
ps Gov. Easley, Fuck You!
