I am happy to report that my wife and I have just wrapped up our final fundraising event of a jam-packed season. Tonight's bash drew 100 or so people to meet a supremely well-qualified candidate for Superior Court in Orange and Chatham Counties, Adam Stein. I've known Adam for almost 20 years and his commitment to justice is quite nearly legendary. If all our courts and cases were managed by people of his caliber, North Carolina would be judicial beacon on the hill.
Adam is running a smart and effective campaign against three nice guys, all of whome I know, and none of whose qualifications even come close to matching. I hope he wins, of course, because of the example of excellence he will set.
I can already feel the withdrawal symptoms coming on.
