One can only laugh at today's climate......
The dems and the liberal media are so hurt over losing the election. Trump stories on Yahoo splash page:

1) Did Trump really say Israel to the Russians?
2) Melania "appeared" to pull away from Donald when he tried to hold her hand
3) Bully Bush's daughter "ashamed" (still no mention of how ashamed Chelsea was)
Nothing on the page has any actual facts or information about something that is really happened.

The one story about the Obama's? Telling what great Italian tourists they are. I have never seen the media so slighted, hurt and despondent. Sounds like a few on this board. Quite an interesting psychological phenomena. I wonder what the experts will eventually name it? Trump Derangement Syndrome was one good name.

Meanwhile, we certainly haven't heard much from isis lately have we?

Supreme Court rules NC engaged in an unconstitutional racial gerrymander
11:08 AM

)The Supreme Court struck down two congressional district maps in North Carolina Monday, holding that the state had engaged in an unconstitutional racial gerrymander.

The ruling is a victory for the black North Carolina voters who had argued the plans packed African-Americans in districts that already had a high percentage of African-Americans, thus diluting their presence in other districts.

As a result, the ruling sends the North Carolina legislature back to the drawing board -- with significant potential implications for the 2018 midterm elections. The state has been nearly split along partisan lines in recent statewide elections -- such as for governor and president -- but Republicans control 10 US House seats compared to only three for Democrats.

"The Constitution entrusts states with the job of designing congressional districts," Justice Elena Kagan wrote for the majority. "But it also imposes an important constraint: A state may not use race as the predominant factor in drawing district lines unless it has a compelling reason."

"North Carolina voters deserve a level playing field and fair elections, and I'm glad the Supreme Court agrees," said Gov. Roy Cooper, a Democrat elected last November.

"The North Carolina Republican legislature tried to rig congressional elections by drawing unconstitutional districts that discriminated against African-Americans and that's wrong," he added.

The case was heard before Cooper took office, and attorneys for North Carolina argued that the state finds itself in a bind. The Voting Rights Act requires that the legislature take race into consideration when drawing district lines.

Two districts were at issue and the court split differently on its votes. In District 1, the legislature increased black voting age population from 47.6% to 52.65%. The court struck that map 8-0. The black majority voting population was also increased in District 12 from 43.7% to 50.66%. The court struck that map down 5-3.

Justice Neil Gorsuch didn't participate because he was not on the bench when the case was heard.

Steve Vladeck, CNN legal analyst and professor of law at the University of Texas School of Law, contributed to this report.

Its the hardliners in Iran and the hardliners in the US that are against
the Iran nuclear agreement. That alone means it's a good deal.

The Israeli's may say one thing publicly, but privately they will agree its improved their security.

Re: What would YOU do if we won the conference???
Not sure what I would do but it is baseball so it is possible. CG has set up our pitching to give it our best shot. To have a chanch pitchers must keep opposition to 4-5 runs or less every game.

If it is a first game nooner in Greenville
I will probably sit this one out if the weather forecast is scorching. I hope that changes. A lot older and wiser now. To those that would go....Hydrate yourself and stay away from the pregame booze. Are we likely to have a repeat of last year? We are not exactly a prime time draw at this moment. I don't know what the criteria is for determining times, but maybe some of our opponents might help for a better time. If I lived in Greenville I would probably love noon games, but, I live in Salisbury and hate them.
