Illustrating the "Power of NO"

Social and political satirist Gary Trudeau turned his attention and ink on North Carolina with this comic strip from Sunday, October 6, 2013.

In the strip, "Negative Ned" lists for his TV viewers all those being told "no" in North Carolina these days, including:

  • young people
  • teachers
  • the unemployed
  • women
  • minorities
  • college students
  • law enforcement
  • scientists

Doonesbury is just the latest example of how Governor McCrory's promise to "rebrand" North Carolina isn't doing North Carolina any favors.
