TWO OF A KIND?
We’ve got mixed feelings about the unexpected kinship that’s arisen between Carly and Laura. On a cer- tain level, it makes sense that these women would bond. Both are strongwilled, and each under- stands the concept of loving a man who is larger-thanlife. Having mental-health issues become a campaign platform for
mayoral candidate Laura even as Carly was looking into the darker side of Ferncliff gave the ladies common ground on which to stand. But we struggled with the idea of Laura simply standing by as Carly unleashed a litany of threats on Mary Pat. Surely, Laura, while understanding the reason for Carly’s anger, would at least suggest she dial back the rhetoric!
Laura turned both a blind eye and adeaf ear to Carly’s outburst.
