I’m sorry to have to add this addendum to a story I posted months ago about compensation for victims of involuntary sterilization in North Carolina. This was to be the end to a really sorry chapter in our history and, for once, North Carolina was in the lead in making amends.
But it is not to be. It looks like the leader of the state senate, Phil Berger, won’t even bring it to a vote. It makes me really sad, but then maybe I shouldn’t have gotten my hopes up in the first place.
