Lunch Links

vegan_lunch_620x413-150x150Here is your slightly tardy Wednesday edition of Lunch Links and no, they don’t all have to do with Tuesday’s unusual hearing at the Legislative Building that featured state lawmakers of both parties asking tough questions of embattled DHHS Secretary Aldona Wos, but here are few stories not to miss in addition to Sarah Ovaska’s roundup this morning.

WRAL, the News & Observer, and the Associated Press also had fairly comprehensive coverage of the day’s events, and WFAE in Charlotte and WUNC-FM in Chapel Hill covered things for the radio world.  WRAL had an interesting story about public records and DHHS in light of a terrific investigative piece published Tuesday by Rose Hoban with N.C. Health News about the department’s repsonse to a Medicaid audit. 

There’s plenty of commentary about the day too, from Gary Pearce over at Talking About Politics and Adam Searing earlier this morning right here on the Pulse.

The N.C. League of Conservation Voters released its 2013 Legislative Scorecard today with a record number of state lawmakers earning a zero. Sure does make you proud, doesn’t it?

Also in non-Wos news, the absurd hostage crisis in Washington continues, or as New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman calls it this morning, the U.S. Fringe Festival.

If you didn’t see Frontline’s  disturbing documentary last night about brain injuries and the NFL, it is definitely worth your time. 

And finally, John Lennon would have been 73 today.  Imagine what he would singing if he were still around. Imagine indeed.
