Did any of you guys learn proper grammar in school? "I hope it don't get lost" should be "I hope it DOESN'T get lost." Good grief.

This is an historic moment in N.C. history - for the first time in state history, a woman is now the governor of the state of North Carolina. And not just any woman. She comes from a humble background (not elitist) which makes her sensitive to the economic fallout for working individuals and families in this state. And she is a hard worker herself, getting a college education, and working her way up the political ladder. And she speaks plainly and understandably for all to hear.
No double talk here. So give her the benefit of the doubt. N.C. is suffering from an economic recession in which layoffs are commonplace events - no jobs!
Hopefully, Gov. Perdue will take some positive and constructive steps to remedy the situation.

We shall see. If people are going to spend time commenting, they should work on subject-verb agreement.

History?*yawn*

Madam Bev will make history for sure...not favorable though. She will join her mentor as one of two of
the biggest flops to hold that office.

I'm betting on how soon some of you who voted for her starting complaining about higher taxes, more spending for the Eastern half of NC, ineptness, and continual favoritism to her cronies.

Historic? What, just because she has her reproductive, no doubt mothballed, organs on the inside. News flash several states beat NC to the equality in government for women bar.

A new direction? How is her continued implimentation of Easley's already corrupt anything new. This read like left wing propaganda meant for the ignorant uninformed masses that might happen to catch her in their 3 minutes of news daily.

Mark my word, which are simply repeats of far smarter and better informed than me. She will be pushing, with her majority Democrat legislature, huge tax and fee increases over the next 24 months before she has to suddenly become angelic for the people in her reelection campaign.

I saw her on WLOS news last night, and realized it was the first time I had seen and heard her speak. She looks like the Joker and has a very irritating voice, but those are just first impressions. I hope she is not like Easly and that her "humble beginnings" are not just an impetus for greed and power madness that we have seen all too often. It may be news to her that there is a whole other part of NC west of Charlotte!

I am not from Jackson County - lived here for 13 years. There are good and bad teachers everywhere. All my teachers made us learn proper grammar. Schools don't seem to teach it these days and all the text messaging, emailing and online forums has made people's spelling and grammar worse!
