Everyone had an opinion this week.
A judge opined on a lawsuit, a senator gave his thoughts on a campaign and a candidate made a snarky remark on his rival's methods.
All were among the most-read posts this week:
1. No Moore Lawsuit. A Superior Court judge dismissed a lawsuit alleging state Treasurer Richard Moore withheld public records. About three months too late for Moore's taste.
2. Chuck's Fired Up. New York Sen. Charles Schumer says Democratic Senate nominee Kay Hagan is "on fire." And a group he leads has $6 million of gasoline.
3. No Bail Out. State lawmakers declined to bail out the health plan after the House and Senate couldn't agree. Hey, at least they agreed on the budget.
4. Silly Seasoning. Republican gubernatorial nominee Pat McCrory complains that a Beverly Perdue staffer is recording him. At least he got $50 out of it.
5. No Futures. The U.S. House decides to look into suggestions by Rep. Bob Etheridge to curb excessive speculation on oil futures. Does that include TV pundits?
