    "I stumped my toe at 9 this morning." PikeMom: do you remember the diatribe by Bill Cosby many years ago about walking around a house with the lights off at night, and the stubbing of the toes? Your comment reminded me of that. Thanks for the grins. Ptah, Ptah.

    I agree with dm919...where's the beef...? I like the happy ending but surely we have more ugly politics in Raleigh than this story.

    Maybe he got his big toe stuck in the filter intake hole?
