Rush Limbaugh and the Bull City~
Love him, or hate him...
I was on his show on Tuesday- I was his last caller-
"Cora, from Durham"-
So...any of you who were listening, or are 24/7 members- would have heard the Fair Mayden's voice just before 3pm on the 10th :)
Somehow I doubt that many of you heard it~
Of course, my call was about the Duke Lacross players being proclaimed "INNOCENT" by our Attorney General, Roy Cooper...at least 4 to 6 months later than they should have been.
Crystal Mangum, the accuser, has not been charged, and probably won't be, for the things she's said or done. No apology, no remorse, no words of regret have crossed her lips for the unjustice brought on 3 young men who will have a heck of a time trying to get their lives in order...but they will- trust me, they will. She's gotten a free ride from the Rainbow Push Coalition- Jessie Jackson has seen to it that her tuition will be paid in full- so that she doesn't need to "Strip" in order to put herself through school.
At least she has that going for her.
Mike Nifong should lose his job, and hopefully lose his license to practice law. However, this is Durham- hell, Mike will probably end up being the Mayor or something.
My sleepy southern town will return to normal, now that FOX News, CNN, NBC, and MSNBC have flown out of RDU and back to the Journalistic Pits of Hell from whence they came...only they don't realize how much dirt there is here, mixed in with the red clay and all.
They should have stayed- they might have found a 2nd home in the Bull City...
Ahhh- the "Bull City". People think it's called that because of the Durham Bulls baseball team...
but I'm here to tell you...the "Bull" in this city has nothing to do with the Ball team-
and everything to do with the load of crap the city leaders will dump on you- whenever and however they can- if it's in their best interest.
This time though- someone got caught.
Seems bittersweet though...
3 men will spend years cleaning up their names.
The DA, most likely, will lose his job.
Crystal Mangum, the accuser, will finish up college tuition free- and who knows, she might even get a job with the city one day.
But- at least I got to talk to Rush Limbaugh again...
