We'll always be known as the Cape Fear Coast. Those in beach towns who feel left out, fail to understand the meaning of the phrase. And it sounds like our local government is spending money based on their ignorance. The region and the river is named after the Cape itself, a marine feature. Cape Fear is a large obvious geographic point jutting seaward just like Capes Hatteras and Lookout. So it's an obvious moniker for our region that is not bias away from beach towns. What shameful waste of money to cowtow to those who, like little children, truelly don't understand what they are upset about and who have little enough reverence for our historic region as to want change its name. Rarely do you see such arrogance and ignorance combined into action.
