Three teens were bitten by sharks last week on North CarolinaâEUR~s coast. Maybe the first attack couldn't be prevented, but the last should have been. Town officials should have banned shark fishing off the piers and evacuated the water for starters.

NC is one of only four states left in the U.S. that still bans third-party energy sales, allowing Duke Energy a monopoly. Though the state legislature is finally considering an Energy Freedom Act (EFA), it should make its passage a priority.

Hotwire claims to give you a great deal on hotels. But that claim comes with a lot of baggage. With some hotel reservations, Hotwire claims you can cancel with no penalty if you do so in time. However canceling is not as easy as they make it sound.
