NC agriculture official quits rather than honor Jesse Helms

This is a truly heartwarming story. This guy isn't 64. He's 51, and he told his bosses what to do with the job he'd had for 29 years.

"Regardless of any executive proclamation, I do not want the flags at the North Carolina Standards Laboratory flown at half staff to honor Jesse Helms any time this week," Eason wrote just after midnight, according to e-mail messages released in response to a public records request.

L.F. Eason, III, ladies and gentlemen.
