City Council will be asked to consider a "statement of regret" over Klan-Nazi killings.
We've had a lot of turnover on the Council since the board stiff-armed the TRC process.
They don't have to accept the flawed but useful report to comment on this piece of our history.

If this doesn't create nostalgia for the future nothing will. I'm usually not big into ordinaces, but why doesn't the city put up signs like the clickit or ticket, bird sanctuary and littering with a slogan prohibiting the possession of a loaded firearm if you pull a permit for a rally which has the phrase "Death to... (any redneck group)....." in it. Pynchon was right. If they can get you asking the wrong questions, they don't have to worry about the answers. Blessed be His name.

Then-mayor Holliday, having been among the original stiff-armers, eventually moderated somewhat, attending a TRC session (if I recall correctly) and eventually telling this blog's author, "I was wrong when I said I didn't believe this effort would open the door to healing."

add an ordinace prohibiting bloodletting on a corpse over 30 years old while they're at it.

This is yet another chance for Greensboro's "leaders" to do the right thing.
How much you want to bet they blow this chance too?

I should have bet you, Billy. They didn't blow it.

Actually Roch, they did blow it. This was yet another chance for Greensboro to become a beacon but all the council voted to do was make 1979 go away.
But 1979 didn't go away and neither side is happy.

I'm confused, Billy. You were hoping they would do what, exactly?
