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.

Editorial: Realistic expectations after the water shortage

There are so many sides to this current water crisis — so many multifaceted issues to consider. What is most important is that everyone affected by it remains safe. But let’s also remember the different problems that might arise for students and professors when classes resume.

Editorial: The pipe burst is part of a larger infrastructure problem in America

What is clear is that the local, state and national community must begin to hold our politicians accountable to these basic issues. It may be all well and good for our government to be discussing the intricacies of immigration reform and the like — but their most basic roles should first be tended to, with the attention and funds that they deserve.

Column: Hope after midterms

They have bright political futures ahead of them, and as their supporters, it serves us best to know they aren’t going anywhere.  Neither is our fight to make America a better, safer place for everyone.

Column: My phone is broken, and maybe I am, too

I look expectantly at the Genius Bar employee surveying my phone. He looks uncomfortable. Another drop of water rolls down my face. As I go to wipe it away, still confused about where this water is coming from, several more drops fall down my cheek. It takes me another second to realize what’s happening. I’m crying.

Editorial: Extend the housing application deadline for first years

The housing application should be moved to at least the spring semester for first year students. This will afford first-years the opportunity to learn more about their interests and to find people to live with. This will ensure that students are not pushed into living agreements or just “going random” because they have not found their people.

Column: The future is the past

Flying cars, talking jackets and hover-boards for every household? Boy, would Marty McFly be upset to find we failed to match his portrayal of the 21st century. In fact, his 80s-inspired outfits in the film are most representative of America today.

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.

Editorial: What Spellings got right

Although Margaret Spellings was not without fault, the Editorial Board believes her legacy as UNC system president provided significant and commendable changes.
