That’s Chris Fitzsimon, leading progressive voice & N.C. Policy Watch domo, vs. John Hood, top conservative thinker and John Locke Foundation chief. They’ll put their pointy heads together and tell us what the state and local elections will mean for growth issues in Wake County. (We’re still growing, aren’t we?) Should be good.

It’s the featured attraction at the WakeUp Wake County annual meeting, tomorrow (Thursday) night, 7-9 pm, in Fletcher Theater at the Progress Energy Center for the Performing Arts.

Yes, I know, we all want to see Biden vs. Palin too. That starts at 9, and I — as the moderator for Chris/John — will endeavor to get us all out a bit before then.
