J. Cole — Fayetteville native, Dreamville rapper, and the king of going platinum with no features — is corny.
If we can all live life as ferociously and justly as Olivia Pope, that might make all of us the gladiators the world needs.
When the DTH turns 150 years old, and I’m back in Chapel Hill to celebrate, I want to read more archives with bylines such as Lopez, Gutierrez or Rodriguez.
Without The Bookshop's quirky, convenient offerings, the immediate Chapel Hill area (for students without transportation) has become a literary desert of sorts.

To all the hopeful Tar Heels visiting campus: I’ve been where you are now.
“It is a luxury to be able to be disgusted,” Herz says, citing the fact that if “you don’t have anything else to eat other than some who’s dead beside you,” you will quell your disgust in order to survive.
