Good morning folks! It’s the middle of the week and if things aren’t going so well so far, that could change. Also, just a reminder, Get Around North Carolina, the first travel guide for North Carolina Placebook, won’t be coming out tomorrow. There’s so much I want to put into it, it’s taking even longer to write. But it’s coming. What I do have for today (and tomorrow) is the news:
