Interesting Indeed

John Hood over at the Carolina Journal Online has a piece out today called "Beverly Perdue's Interesting Interview" that gives us some hope for the future of the state. It seems that our Governor-Elect is thinking some rather big thoughts about the role of the state government. She wonders aloud if it isn't time to shift some of the responsibilities for roads, courts and education back to towns and counties.

If she had said this before the election, I'd have voted for her. I'd love to see more authority vested closer to home, that's where it belongs. Perdue hasn't a snowball's chance in Hell of actually enacting these reforms, but it is great to hear a politician at least mention the subject.
