Rathskeller, a Chapel Hill icon, will be remembered

UNC juniors and seniors will remember the Ramshead Rathskeller, which closed two years ago. The “Rat” is among my fondest memories of Chapel Hill. When I came to UNC in September 1948, I frequently went to Danziger’s Vienna Coffee Shop on Franklin Street, which was also a candy shop.

'Ground Zero' mosque exemplifies freedom

|

The amount of emotion expressed over placing a mosque near the former World Trade Center is surprising and befuddling to me. For eight years we lived under a presidency that, take it or leave it, was a very divisive one and resulted in a politically fractioned nation.

Speaking out against hazing at universities

As educators, advisors, counselors and in the front lines with women and men starting their first year in colleges across the country this fall, we all need to stop our bystander approach to hazing and speak out. Tolerating hazing, or looking the other way, is just as bad as participating.

Tilting at windmills: Duke Energy and UNC should partner to produce technologies that truly benefit consumers

|

Duke Energy’s decision to abandon the construction of wind turbines in the Pamlico Sound is indicative of just how uneconomical wind is as an energy source. If anything, Duke Energy should use its partnership with UNC to make the technology viable instead of implementing it as is. As it stands, wind technology in its current form is a raw deal for consumers, and hardly environmentally friendly. The original plan was to put three “demonstration” turbines in the Sound.

Think with your mind, not with your political party

|

TO THE EDITOR: This is in regard to the letters of support for Burr and Marshall (“College Republicans stir up support for Burr,” “Elaine Marshall might not be ideal Senate candidate,” July 15). While I admire the two letter writers’ dedication to their causes, pro-Burr and pro-Marshall, we should not care if the best representative is Democrat or Republican because it no longer matters. Our two-party system is corrupt with power, special interest groups and lobbyists.

College Republicans stir up support for Burr

|

While it is only to be expected that my counterpart at the Young Democrats, Mr. Storrow, should be fighting for Elaine Marshall to be elected to the U.S. Senate this November, he failed to mention why she offers a better alternative than Senator Burr. Probably because he realizes she doesn’t.
