I don't think the question is whether or not Bojangles should go on that site next to the memorial. I think the real question is why was the memorial put there to begin with. There is a strip mall right beside it and a Hardees and a gas station as well. I think, as a veteran, that this is not a place of honor for such a memorial. Find a more tranquil place to really be able to reflect on the sacrifices these people have made.
Like MarkinMiami, I also have a wife that came here LEGALLY, and she's been busting her butt, owning her own business and trying to make a good life here. In fact, after over 18 years here she finally made time to get her citizenship. She is definitely anti-Illegal alien and she has a right to be that way. The one thing that really irks us both is the idea that illegal aliens are here doing the work that Americans won't do. Not true at all, they are doing the work we won't do for the cheap wages that they will.

I drove by there last weekend and the Cape Fear site is raising steel unless I have the wrong site.
BTW, that $0.10 a gallon cheaper was on the low side it was more on average of $0.25 - $0.30 a gallon. I have been boycotting Exxon in our area since the snow storm back in 2001 when they jacked up the price just as people were finally starting to come out of their homes.
Sanford isn't the only place, it's all around us. The Pilot was told before in an interview with Frank McNeill that the prices come from the distance to deliver the gas. I guess we must be the furthest point for delivery anywhere. For any other reader doubting the claim made above on the difference in prices, I've been recently to Highpoint, Winston-Salem, Raeford, Rockingham and points heading to Myrtle Beach in the past couple of weeks and they were all at least $0.10 a gallon cheaper. Stop the organized price gouging.
Here's one for you to answer. If that was your loved one gunned down would you want him to die for killing your loved one? I know I would. Would I want my son to be put to death, no, but the law is the law. I would hope I would be able to accept the decision of the court if that was the verdict.
@ howcanusaythat - Ok we get it your not in favor of the death sentence. But one of your many retorts says that it is cheaper to keep this guy in jail. Maybe you should read up on your facts before spouting off. I've worked on the design end of some maximum security prisons in North Carolina. Just to build a place to house these creeps costs more than $200 million. To guard, feed, cloth, and look after their medical expenses costs more than $100k per year. If this guy lives another 20 years that's more than $2 million of our tax dollars keeping him alive. How is that cheaper than a trip to the lethal injection room?
Don't forget the men and women in the National Guard that were called up to help in this effort. Some of who have been multiple times deployed to Iraq and Afganistan.
What's even more dangerous are the old pines on Midland Road. They need to be thinned out (not eliminated). Every time there is a storm, down come large hazardous limbs. But that area seems to be a sacred cow.
