Column: Stop encouraging people to vote

But stop asking people to vote. Seriously. Stop. It’s not helpful. Stop registering people. Stop posting things on social media encouraging them to vote. Stop asking your friends if they’ve voted. Please. No more.

Column: Health policy isn't a 'partisan pleasure'

"Health care outcomes are the worst among developed nations; that is appalling in a nation that spends more on health care per person than any other nation. Protect the small progress we have made in the field of health care as a voter, advocate and citizen, and stay informed on the status of health policy."

Column: 31 thoughts on 'Halloween'

Horror movie fans, rejoice. The Oct. 19 release of "Halloween," a direct sequel to the 1978 film by the same name, may buck the trend of failing slasher flicks, potentially sparking a resurgence of masked murderers on cinema screens.

Guest op-ed: Silent Sam speaks

The gate to UNC needs to be widened, not narrowed. There need to be permanent reminders, including of me, to symbolize our strained turning toward true respect and equality for all our citizens. Then, these pieces together can create a great space for open dialogue to bind and seal our wounds.

Column: Dogs, scotch, well-reasoned argumentation and Jonah Goldberg

That’s why I’m writing this article — to encourage you to come to his talk regardless of what political affiliation you lean toward. You’ll learn something. You’ll probably have a decent time. You’ll certainly meet some interesting people. There might even be free food (I doubt it, but it’s worth the risk). And, if all else fails, you can gather a few friends outside and start protesting.

Guest op-ed: Institutional suicide

"On either side of the stage in Lee Chapel hang elegant portraits of the founders, in military dress — both were, after all, professional soldiers, although much else."

Column: The Failure of Grievance Studies

"If the University truly valued producing students who are not only more knowledgeable in their chosen field of study but also possess the ability to think, they might attempt to reform these departments. Clearly, the University does not value this."

Column: Lessons from Georgia O'Keeffe

Hopefully this exhibit will inspire women to make art that accurately depicts their own strength, push men to reflect on the way they represent female subjects in the art they create and challenge the public to question the way women have been reduced to female bodies in art.
