Governor Cooper, I support everything you say here except that I am not as worried about those who brought the monument down in Durham as you are. Though I, too, abhor violence, I do think that it is time for action and activism. But I understand that, as governor, you cannot condone this kind of activism. My biggest concern is the need to “repeal and replace” every GOP member of the NC General Assembly. They make me ashamed of the state I love so much.
