1. There is a right and a wrong way to secure a pardon. Taking it to the media or a library in Chapel Hill is not the right way. That's called trying to use media publicity.
The right way is to file the paperwork with the Governor; have a patron or 2 in the legislature to lobby for the pardon. With 30 days left in office, if it is done properly, who knows Smiley might come through on January 4th.
But either the NAACP does not know the law or feels it is above the law.
Don't think it works that way.
2. Why not undertake some positive action that will affect today's youth? Why not get into the neighborhoods such as Creekwood and make a strong attempt to being an end to violence? Why not join with the City and start some Boys & Girls Clubs?
Number 1 has no impact on the quality of life. NUmber 2 can.
