N.C.’s Two-Mile Hill

Andy Griffith…. why not?

In a favorite episode, Otis, the town drunk, buys a fancy new car. This scares Andy and Barney, the local Sheriffs.

Barney decides to give Otis a driving test, which doesn’t go so well.


Later, Otis passes out at a party. Barney and Andy take him to jail and fake his death in a car accident.

“If only he hadn’t try to drive in that condition. Lickety split, down two-mile hill, around the curve, weaving from side to side, out on old plank bridge, through the rain, into the river….drowned.”

In his drunken stupor, Otis believes he has actually died. He’s “scared straight,” so to speak.

North Carolina’s Two-Mile Hill

Roy Cooper says that we need to have a sustained drop in Covid cases before our economy is allowed to “drive” again.

Well, folks…it ain’t happening.

We’ve flattened our curve into a two-mile hill.

As testing increases, this hill isn’t likely to drop anytime soon.

And so, we’re in this thing for the long-haul.

In other news, Fayetteville Mayor Mitch Colvin extended Fayetteville’s curfew. We shouldn’t be out past 9 p.m. or we risk getting a citation.

Colvin said crime was going up and people were having house parties and cook-outs.

To close, a new study says sunlight kills the virus.

It’s time to get some fresh air.
