    See also this article about “practicing engineering without a license”, which is apparently a misdemeanor:

    By the way, what is it about North Carolina?

    NC is also the place where corporal punishment is still legal. http://www.mattmetzgar.com/matt_metzgar/2012/04/corporal-punishment-ii-your-mind-is-playing-tricks-on-you.html

    When I attended Duke University in the early 1960s, I was appalled at how much racism and ignorance there was in North Carolina. At that time, I was told (perhaps erroneously) that there were no black undergraduate students at Duke.

    The racism began to lessen in North Carolina in the 1960s, but ignorance apparently is still endemic.

    Some things never change.
