If you ever get up enough nerve to venture beyond Burgaw, you ought to visit Greensboro. It's North Carolina's 3rd. largest city. The ACC plays their championship basketball tournament there. The PGA visits every year and you don't get a shark bite when you go swimming. I think you would also find that the triad led NC in economic development projects this year. Makes me think something is being done right. Your opinion of Wilmington is as sad as your attitude toward progress and this is likely due to your inability to afford our standard of living.
