I am from Chapel Hill, and that is an island of it's own. A non judgmental "liberal" island..
Bwaaaahaaaaahaaaa!!! Non judgmental? Try being the kid in high school that actually thought hunting was okay, people should be able to smoke if they
want to, and that guns weren't going to turn people in to maniacal maniacs over night. If you weren't a die hard socialist, an anarchist poser, post
Americanist, new ager, or a "true liberal" life was far from fun. You had to search for friends from other areas.
With all it's "budda beans" and racism. Churches, and what are "the gays" doing??
That is rural living almost anywhere you go. The funny thing is, people that move here from NYC, Boston, and Phillie always tell me how open and
integrated things are by comparison. Even the ones that live in Durham, Sanford, Greensboro, High Point, Winston Salem, Mebane, and Burlington. I'm
not saying racism doesn't exist, or that homophobia isn't more common than it should be. I'm saying that to call racism the true nature of the
state, and Chapel Hill the sole shining beacon is very misleading.
As for this law, it doesn't surprise me. People from New Jersey and other northern environs have destroyed their own beaches. Then they headed this
way because NC's beaches were clean and less cluttered. Now they are reinventing our coast in the image of their home and spending billions for the
privilege. With NC in a hard economic position they really couldn't afford to stop the building.
It makes me sad. Emerald Isle use to be a beautiful place with tons of public beach. I remember eating breakfast at Squatters' on Saturday mornings
and walking up the access road to go swimming and spend the morning playing. Now the beach and sound both look like somebody dropped life size
Monopoly pieces on both sides of the road and wiped out all of the local culture and community.
