THE RANT: Judge Ola Lewis .. more the politican, less a judge

THE RANT: Please don't call it Cape Fear anymore
Submitted by WWAY on Tue, 07/12/2011 - 3:38pm.

And then you've got Wilmington, epicenter of the Cape Fear Coast, right? Well, not any more. The brain trust at the Brandon Agency, an ad company in Myrtle Beach, thinks we should be called "Wilmington: River District and Island Beaches" now. Snazzy huh?
