Ice cream is the least of NC’s wor­ries

The Charlotte Observer (Sunday) - - Opinion -

In re­sponse to “Sweet! Bill would make ice cream NC’s of­fi­cial frozen treat” (Feb. 7):

Se­ri­ously? N.C. Rep. John Tor­bett of Gas­ton County is spend­ing his time draft­ing and sub­mit­ting HB 30 to name ice cream – only if it’s milk­based – as the state’s Of­fi­cial Frozen Treat.

With all the im­por­tant is­sues we have fac­ing us as a state and a na­tion, our state leg­is­la­ture has time to write, de­lib­er­ate and ac­tu­ally vote on this bill?

It’s past time for us to take se­ri­ously our right and free­dom to vote and use that vote to se­lect peo­ple who have an eye and heart for what is truly needed in these tu­mul­tuous times.

Thank you, Char­lotte Ob­server, for alert­ing us to such triv­i­al­ity and putting it on the front page for all of us to see what hap­pens in Raleigh.

– Richard Lit­tle, Con­cord
