NAME THAT SERIES: Thanks for participating!

The good news: You had lots to say about your choice as well as about alternatives.

  • The bad news: Not everyone can win a free copy.

  • The weird news: The number of votes for each choice was exactly the same.

  • The surprising news: The series name will not be one of the choices I gave you to choose from, and I'm still giving copies away.

Dear Governor McCrory...

I know you're suffering. And I have some information that I hope will help you and your family out of your current troubles.

As an advocate for personal truth, and in particular an advocate for the rights of LGBTQ citizens, I have read with interest a number of articles about you. In them, you describe the difficulties you and your wife have had to face as a result of North Carolina's HB2, the law you signed that requires people to use public facilities according to the gender on their birth certificates and limits the civil rights of LGBTQ people in general.
