N.C. State Employee Picks Retirement Over Lowering Flag For Dead Jesse Helms
Meet a brave American Hero: L.F. Eason III, the "29-year veteran of the state Department of Agriculture" who chose early retirement over the foul task of lowering the American Flag to half mast for thedead bigot Jesse Helms.
Eason went to work for the North Carolina government right out of college, and spent 29 years working for the state's Department of Agriculture.
Now, at the age of 51, he has taken retirement rather than allow his small staff at Raleigh's North Carolina Standards Laboratory to lower the flag for trash like Jesse Helms, the dead piece of trash.
(Thanks to Wonkette/N.C. Operative Kelly Thompson for the tip!)
