I came across this in the paper today:
The lawsuit seeks to abolish the nearly 200-year-old - and rarely enforced - law that prohibits unmarried, unrelated adults of the opposite sex from living together. North Carolina is one of seven states with such a law.
The first thought in my mind (OK, the second) was... Hm... I bet it is OK for two people of the same gender to live together.
Hm... wonder what signal *that* sends.
I'm sure they are working feverishly to outlaw room mates.
