"North" or "Carolina"

Betty is having trouble deciding which word, and which culture -- North or South -- dominates the scene here in Durham.

She has been at hotel-based conference for the past three days, and has no trouble deciding that she's ready to come home to New York, bodacious Bimbo, and "The Office"!

One thing she likes about North Carolina is the independently and leisurely owned and operated gas stations. Such places have powered her bright blueberry of a car. And she's discovered the time to write poems while she spaces out at panels.

The people here (workers, hotel workers, directors, organizers, funders) really are her heroes, and some of the panels have been great!
