Like millions around the globe, I kept up with the Olympics on TV. A few days go, the games went to commercial break and I settled in for what I assumed was another political campaign spot. Scenic landscapes, swelling music and a voiceover announcing the virtues of … a road. That’s right, a road. Supporters of the proposed I-73 project, the unfunded, unnecessary, $2.4 billion highway to North Carolina, have taken to the airwaves to plead their case. Well I’m not buying it and neither should you.
