To be fair, it wasn’t much of a decision. The developer already had the required commercial zoning and a site plan ready to go from 1998 that would have allowed them to build an unattractive grocery store in a strip-mall layout.

As US Sen. Kay Hagan watches her poll numbers drop in concert with the mounting troubles in the rollout of the Affordable Care Act, the Democratic incumbent is seeking to put distance between herself and President Obama in a way that must make the party faithful wince....
