I typically avoid posting about politics, but the HB2 law, that passed in North Carolina has me more than a little concerned and I feel the need to talk about it. This law might be referred to as the "bathroom law", but it extends much further than that. I am sure you all know the details and if you don't here is a link to an article in the Charlotte Observer that breaks it down quite well: Understanding HB2.
I feel like the state has taken a backwards step in time, and a lot of people are going to be affected, not only LGBT, but businesses across the state. Everyday new companies and organizations are boycotting North Carolina.
How will this law affect our pottery sales here in Seagrove? Only time will tell. The annual Spring Studio Tour is next weekend. We really need this boost in sales after a lackluster holiday season and a slow winter. I hope that pottery collectors realize that the small minded decision made by NC legislature is something that Jeff and I are against. North Carolina needs our vote, please continue to support us.
In order to lighten the mood, I'll end on a humorous note...
The local grocery store is now selling paper products by the pound! I wonder if it's a better deal that way? :-)
