Carolina blue


Though the North Carolina elections board won’t release the final count until later this month, the Associated Press has called it — North Carolina is now a blue state.

As though to prove that this is a real phenomenon, yesterday Delta Airlines announced that it plans to start nonstop service from Raleigh-Durham to Paris. Last week, US Airways announced that it’s planning to start nonstop service from Charlotte to Paris.

This is not really something new. It’s a return to the norm. Lyndon Johnson, it is reported, said, “We have just lost the South for a generation” after he signed the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

It feels good to be connected to the coasts again, and to the world.
