    Burr is going east of Greensboro? Really? Are they holding a second funeral for Helms? That is the only thing important enough to get him to see the easter half of the state he allegedly represents.

    Well, I guess there's a first time for everything. Welcome to North Carolina Mr. Dole. We're real sorry you can't vote for your wife. Maybe if our Senator actually LIVED in NC, you'd have a stronger tie to us!
