The editors of the News & Observer crack me up.
In their latest missive, they insist that state legislators should have seen Judge Howard Manning’s ruling on pre-kindergarten programs “from miles away.” Really? If it is was so obvious, then why didn’t the editors of the N&O see it from miles away? I did not see any mention of pre-kindergarten programs in the June 22 editorial, “Manning’s turn,” which was published on the first day of the hearing.
In fact, nobody knew what to expect from Judge Manning’s ruling, which is what happens when the courts tackle policy instead of the law.
