    The NC budget telethon!

    Great ideas, Roy and Donna. Can you just imagine it? Saturday on your local TV station. The familiar basso profundo of the announcer says, We’ll return to this very special Saturday movie, “B.J. and the Bear,” after a few words from our sponsor. Cut to Andy Griffith in blue…
