    Yesterday, John Murawski over at the News & Observer reported on a judge's denial of the Attorney General's motion to dismiss in Owens v. North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality.

    Protesters, N&O: Issues May Be Urgent, But Apparently Not Urgent Enough to Understand

But what exactly is in this so-called urgent message?
