First Drip (3/27/15): Religious freedoms over discrimination protections hits N.C., more

Posted By on Fri, Mar 27, 2015 at 8:27 AM

When religious freedom trumps discrimination protections: Indiana Gov. Mike Pence signed into law the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, which, according to the Washington Post, gay activists say "could pave the way for open discrimination against gay, bisexual and transgender people, giving business owners, landlords and others the right to refuse service to gays under the guise of religious protection." A similar bill was introduced in North Carolina this week by two Mecklenburg County representatives.

Duke Energy held its top executives accountable for the Dan River coal ash spill by docking part of their pay. For example, CEO Lynn Good's total compensation in 2014 totaled $8.3 million instead of $8.9 million.

Tarheel coach Dean Smith is still impacting his players from the grave. About 180 players who lettered while under Smith received $200 each with a note to have a dinner on Coach.
