There's always one in every neighborhood:
Gov. Pat McCrory offered a critique of state government architecture on Wednesday morning, complaining that many of the state buildings and parking decks in downtown Raleigh are “frankly as ugly as the dickens.” The remarks came during a question-and-answer session at a meeting of the Midtown Raleigh Alliance, a chamber of commerce-type group representing the North Hills area. McCrory said he’s dismayed to look out from the governor’s mansion and see windowless buildings constructed in the 1960s and ’70s.
“It’s almost as though we built our government buildings as if they were bunkers in World War II,” he told the gathering of about 100 business leaders. “They look like they were built at Dunkirk, or on D-Day in Normandy.”
While some of those structures may seem "Dickensian" in appearance, it's the policies and unchecked Capitalism favored by McCrory and his pals that will really affect people, and not in a good way. But it's not just "form over substance" that inspired this vicious attack on windowless buildings. McCrory has finally found an opponent he can criticize that won't have the audacity (like a 12 year-old girl) to argue back. Of course, he's not smart enough to figure out that arguing with inanimate objects makes him look like he needs to have his meds reevaluated. Maybe the Wos can hook him up. Or not.
