There were three Chargers road games I wanted to go to this year. In order of preference, they were: (1) at Carolina, (2) at Atlanta, and (3) at Houston. As you know, I went to the game in Houston. I chose this because it was the "official" ChargerFans.Net game. I decided, because of the possibility that I would go to London, that I would not be able to go to the other two games.

In light of my previous post about moving on, though, I've rethought my decision. Since North Carolina is one of the places I might be interested in moving to, maybe I should go to the game against the Panthers. So, I looked up the date of the game: October 24. Book Club is on October 23. Oh well....

I have to say you might be a more hardcore football man than I. I haven't left New England to see the Pats since the 1996 season when I saw them against the Jets and the Giants at that pitiful excuse for a football stadium, the Meadowlands. Which I might add is in NEW JERSEY but that's a rant for another time...

What is there in North Carolina that would make it worth moving to?

Nice climate. Economic growth. Technology boom. Good music schools. Beautiful women. Etc.

Freedom from earthquakes? How about hurricanes? Snow? Bad politics?

They get the occasional hurricane, and even the occasional light snowfall. No state is immune from bad politics!

Some states seem to provoke bad politics more than others, whether from ignorance, apathy, greed, the predomanant religious atmosphere or whatever. Contrast Massachusetts with Hawaii or Alaska.

Wasn't there a big story in the news recently about a bad Hawaiian politician? Hawaii has its share of bad politics, too!

Hawaii is a poor rural state with one rich urban center. Its population is a mix of Oriental, Pacific and European who value diversity as much as they value anything specific that sits on an international trade route. Massachusetts is a middle class mostly rural agrarian state with several urban centers with a uniform population and a tradition of Protestant morality. Alaska is mostly wilderness, its population combining natives with those who came seeking wealth. Each of them demonstrates its own characteristic brand of politics, often bad, especially to outsiders.

I'm familiar with the demographics of these states, although I very much disagree that Massachusetts has a uniform population. (There is a divide in MA that occurs around Worcester. West of Worcester is very conservative; east of Worcester is very liberal.) But the demographics of these states has nothing to do with my tongue-in-cheek comment about bad politics.

No, it is an example of the kind of information I was looking for in my initial question about politics in North Carolina.

You asked a question about politics in North Carolina? It was framed as a question of what I saw in Carolina, or whether I'd find freedom from bad politics. If you meant to ask a question about Carolina politics, you certainly framed it poorly.

Perhaps. The question was framed over several responses, some of which were posed as examples. If I had set out to pose the question coherently, in a single response, you might have had fewer problems with it. It doesn't matter. Forget it.
