RALEIGH — Until recently, no one in North Carolina, home to so many tobacco companies, could have imagined a statewide smoking ban in public buildings.

And yet it’s possible that federal environmental regulators could target another signature Tar Heel State tradition: the pig pickin’.

Several cities in California, Colorado, and other states have banned outdoor grilling — particularly where wood or charcoal is involved — at parks and other public areas and at events including weekend festivals.

If a BBQ restaurant burns down that usually means the BBQ was awesome. I highly doubt one of the staples of southern cooking will be banned.

Outrage over the banning of bbq, but cool for the state to list political affiliations and gun ownership as reason to kidnap a child. Keep watching TV. Everything is ok.

Everyone is subjective about everything anymore.
