    very sad to this gentleman but however, so many folks going crazy sad part is that thanks to mccrory and other republicans moving the states health mental insitutions out of Raleigh where the folks can seek treatment rather than way up to john umstead in butner, its just crazy, this is sad for our community white and black we are never alone

    we do not need TWO stories about this, combine them or delete one of them.....surely there is enough news to fill the site.

    maybe it was, maybe it wasn't Obamacare.....people that age to die of other causes ya know.....and some even manage to do it when they are outside alone.
