Tuesday’s open line

Not being completely naive, we often see extended discussions of crime segue (to put it kindly) into discussions of race. Although you have the right to speak your mind, that freedom is not absolute, especially on this privately-owned Web site. Please be reminded that racist language will not be tolerated.

If you read something that you believe to be a racist statement, please email us a homeinhenderson@nc.rr.com and will will address it as soon as possible.
