Mystery Visitor to Kannapolis Was Martha Stewart

The secret is out. Lifestyle guru Martha Stewart was the mystery guest of a billionaire developer who prompted local officials to take down flags honoring the late NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt in his hometown.

Stewart visited the North Carolina Research Campus in Kannapolis on Thursday with David Murdock, the campus founder and owner of Dole Food Co.

Stewart said she would take ideas from the campus to her Center for Living at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York.

Last week, city workers took down flags honoring Earnhardt after an official at Murdock's real estate company and a local tourism official said some were dirty and torn and might upset a Murdock guest, who wasn't identified.

    how am I a bigot? im not intolerant. before you go throwing adn names, know what they mean. and the only reason i believe this is became thats what I was told. just like you are told everything you know, we all were. just like we are told there are other planets out there, we've never been there but we know its true. because we were told. we dont really know anything about either of the candidates, all we know is what were told.

    Not me again. I hope this person is having fun.< I didn't say that. You must feel powerful to hide behind my name and post things I haven't said. Even though I know who you are. The only ONLY reason I haven't struck is because.....you don't need to know that. You silly young boys have made a grave mistake. He who laughs last - laughs the longest.

    To Phillip: Are you saying that Obama does not acknowledge the American flag? What is your evidence for such? A chain email? A doctored and heavily edited video clip on the internet? How about do some real research and stop relying on chain emails for your "facts." To believe something so ridiculous without proof means that it is something that inside you WANT to believe. And if deep down inside, you WANT to believe, well that is fine. That is your opinion, but don't go spreading lies to other people. Keep your bigotry to yourself. Thank you very much. Have a blessed day in this great land of America!
