The BBC is broadcasting live from the historic American Tobacco District in Durham, NC (hometown) through our local NPR station (WUNC in Chapel Hill (where I work)) at 0700 and 0900 EST this morning. They've put together a series of articles based on the war in Iraq, Fayetteville (home of Ft. Bragg) and US politics.

Kinda cool having someone like the BBC to deliver two hours of news based on NC and the US right from our own backyard. I would expect NPR will have archives available soon. I'm assuming all NPR stations in the US are carrying this.

I only got to hear a few bits, but I enjoyed it. It was nice to hear some folks speak against the war, though I was a bit disheartened when they interviewed that Vietnam vet who spat out so perfectly the Karl Rove talking point: "The Democrats are living in the 9/10 world and Bush is living in the post-9/11 one." Ugh... But, it was an interesting cross-section of a state that I think teeters more than people realize between being "blue" or "red," despite electing Jesse Helms for so long...
