Memo from the AG?

If U. S. Attorney General Eric Holder fell and bumped his head, suffering a rare bout of honesty, you might see the following:  

A memo from Eric Holder's Justice Department concerning stand your ground laws:

Dear Citizen,

If you are confronted by Mexican drug gangs carrying AK47 assault rifles purchased from Eric Holder's Justice Department, do not panic.  First, try to diffuse the situation by offering to purchase a small bag of weed.  If this doesn't work, turn on your heels and run like a scalded dog.  But don't run in a straight line, try a zig-zag pattern to avoid being hit by a bullet from an AK47 purchased from Eric Holder's Justice Department.  

Under no circumstance should you try to defend yourself with deadly force as your puny .38 special is no match for Eric Holder's AKs.  Thank you for your cooperation.  Stay safe and God bless.

Thanks for beautification

Thanks,  James Faucette, for your July 19th letter commenting on the beauty of the crepe myrtles on Interstate 85.  They make the entrance to our city very beautiful.  

I also have been wanting to add my thanks the N. C. Highway Department for such forethought and for the newer plantings on U. S. 15/501 from Garrett Road to Patterson Place.
