    Yep. She went back and finished undergrad and masters at wake when I was a kid, then worked in the computer center from about 1980 until about 1988. My dad (‘56) worked at Wake from 1969 until 89 IIRC

    Someone cannot graduate from college in their 30's?

    It wasn’t common back then especially not at Wake.

    Yeah, I think BBD was looking for a gotcha. Agree with Ph that Wake wasn't (and isn't) a school that people typically graduate from if they're older than 23.

    Look on my feed, LK. You know her. She also had something to say a few weeks ago about the funeral for John Lewis and how it basically shouldn't have been allowed to happen because of lots of other events got cancelled.

    A good friend of mine (former Republican and Wake grad)...his parents (still huge Trump supporters) just told him that he, his wife, and his kids are “disgusting” because of their support for BLM and that they are raising their kids to be “marxists” who will be looking for handouts for the rest of their lives. Said they are completely “disappointed” and “appalled” by how my friend has evolved.
    then they really ruined their kid... right?

    The Destruction of the US Postal Service by Trump & the Republican Party

    https://www.newschannel5.com/news/ne...l-if-necessary

    Congressman Jim Cooper is urging Speaker Nancy Pelosi to bring House members back from recess next week to investigate whether the Trump administration is deliberately trying to cripple the U.S. Post Office during an election.

    Cooper said new Postmaster General Louis DeJoy, a major Trump donor, should be subpoenaed to testify and, if he refuses to cooperate, the House should have him arrested to force his testimony.

    "If need be, we could even have the Sergeant at Arms arrest the Postmaster General," the Nashville Democrat told NewsChannel 5.
    "This is completely outrageous conduct to dismantle the Post Office right in such a crucial time in American history."
    Plot twist coming...

    "I never thought I'd live to see the day where the President of the United States would sabotage our own Post Office," Cooper said.
    But, politics aside, Cooper said many of his Republican colleagues share his concern about what's happening.

    Sure behind closed doors they’ll have concerns. When the mics are on it’s 100% “Dear Leader” coward speak

    More evidence of Republicans willing to enact policies that kill Americans to maintain their power.

Basically, the GOP talking point on every show this morning was "nothing to see here, same old grumblings about our inefficient, bloated big government post office, move on please."
