The Editorial Board takes on: "Things we like to do."

This is the first in a series of illustrations of discussion points and individual opinions from editorial board meetings that didn't make the page.

Each of The Daily Tar Heel's editorials are pitched, written and published as collaborative pieces from the Editorial Board. Every other week, the board will share some of our discussion points that didn't make the cut from our meetings to the page in a segment that features individual board members' voices. To start off "The Editorial Board Takes On" series, we asked each other what we liked to do in our free time.

Column: Peter Tosh was right

 An important component of any bill that legalizes marijuana, however, should be the release of all prisoners held on marijuana-related charges, as well as some compensation for their legal persecution. Ending a long-standing tool of systemic oppression is not enough; we will also have to undo the damage that this oppression created.

Column: Is age just a number?

One of the most notable of these civil rights movements has been the transgender movement. Their success has been nearly unprecedented in political and cultural history. The rapidity at which they have succeeded at achieving recognition has been remarkable, especially when you consider that movements who represent larger portions of the population have taken much longer to achieve their goals.

Editorial: Timing isn't everything for UNC

 A better, clear principle is simply telling the truth and giving the news when it comes available. Let the people decide how to react to it.

Column: CAPS needs to be better

Throw into the mix that these students are struggling with mental disorders that can border on debilitating, and CAPS can be distinctly unhelpful.

Column: In defense of Broward County

Our reputation has taken a bit of a hit these past few weeks. The way our officials handle elections in a county of almost 2 million people is, quite frankly, an embarrassment, and we need a vast overhaul of our system.  But remember, we could always be North Florida.
