DTH at a Glance

DTH at a Glance: Leave RJ alone

Good morning!

Today marks about a year and a half since UNC introduced its second mascot, Rameses Jr., to the world. It also marks about a year and half since I subsequently sent my favorite tweet ever as The Daily Tar Heel: "UNC has a second mascot in the family. Meet RJ, a smaller Rameses with better eyebrows."

I've since used that post as a work sample for at least five different internship/scholarship applications, and at least one of them sort of worked!

Today, our editorial board faced off on exactly just how good RJ's eyebrows really are — and whether or not he deserves to exist, basically. I have strong feelings about the whole thing.

IN THE COURTS

On Tuesday, a federal judge temporarily blocked Trump’s plan to strip funding from sanctuary cities. But don't worry: North Carolina's legislature made sure to fix that, passing a bill in the N.C. Senate that would limit funding to sanctuary cities in the state.

IN '80s DRAG CULTURE
