    Clinton decries outside spending in pricy NC Senate race

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Negative, expensive campaigns is something Sen. Kay Hagan is getting an education in this year. And something Hillary Clinton knows very well.

    What is the best ‘meat city’ in America? NC city ranks high on list

    With the possible exception of smartphone technology, nothing’s seen more practical advances this millennium than food. While it’s true that much of that progress involves vegan, vegetarian and low-meat consumption, carnivory has also seen an impressive evolution. Bacon-wrapped sausage, sausage-stuffed tenderloin, tenderloin burger on a fried-chicken bun — eating in the United States is becoming less a matter of sustenance than a game of meat Tetris. Perhaps in response to years of demonization by health experts, the whole nation has […]
