Jittery. This morning started with not only my job, but real work as well. Paul had given me a tip that the Rule 24 Hearing set for tomorrow in the State of North Carolina v. Antoine Dion Young had been postponed until sometime in April. As a friend of Radok and a citizen of this beloved county, I became curious as to the reason behind the postponement.
