Oil for this, raise your hands

This one's too good to pass up

Scott Mooneyham, who used to be Associated Press's legislative correspondent and is now editor of the insider, has a few light-hearted suggestions for Gov. Bev Perdue's plans to combine, consolidate or eliminate some of the 400 boards and commissions in state government.

My favorite is his suggestion to merge two boards: "The N.C. Medical Board and the Legislative Research Commission Advisory Subcommittee on Offshore Energy Exploration. Anyone who still believes oil drilling off the North Carolina coast is a good idea probably needs their head examined."
