The Fayetteville Observer's "Live Wire" column is usually pretty pedestrian.
In recent weeks, columnist Catherine Pritchard has answered readers' questions such as: Are there any home schooling groups in town? How quickly do you have to roll in your trash can? and Where can I buy ethanol for my new car?
But a question from Saturday's column stands out:
Q: Who would you need to contact or how would you go about receiving a pardon from the governor? — A.K., Fayetteville
Good question, A.K. What a crazy week! M.N. in Raleigh and A.M. in Chapin, S.C., were wondering about the exact same thing. The answer is here. Don't get your hopes up, though, the guv's only given out four pardons so far!
