I’ve loved getting to know you this year

|

Today, I become an editor emeritus of The Daily Tar Heel. Or at least I’ll go with that title. It sounds a lot cooler than “former,” right?I’m ending a journey that began four years ago, when I came to campus with not a whole lot more than a map, a national championship T-shirt and a goofy OneCard picture.By the grace of God, that map led me into the DTH office.

More adventure awaits after UNC

|

As graduation nears, it is time I came clean.Out of the dark and into the light. I’m referring to blues, of course. Yep, I went to Duke.Just so we’re clear, I won’t be using this column to declare any loyalties to one or the other. I defer to the words of the great Mark Twain: “I don’t like to commit myself about heaven and hell — you see, I have friends in both places.”

Talk, text in a car — Are you drunk!?

|

I have a hypothetical situation for you to consider. You are leaving a party and are faced with the option of riding shotgun with a buddy who’s knocked back a few gin and tonics or a friend who is constantly on the cell phone. Surprisingly, this is not a no-brainer.

Ask and tell: Senior unfairly discharged from ROTC; UNC should take a stand against discriminatory Army policy

|

The antiquated “Don’t ask, Don’t tell” policy that prohibits openly gay individuals from serving in the U.S. military has reached an all-time low. Now it has extended its deleterious effects to the University. Senior Sara Isaacson identified herself as a lesbian to the Army ROTC earlier this semester. The response that followed was nothing short of egregious.

Don’t disrupt speech: Protesters should let Tancredo speak; the former congressman’s ideas will do enough to discredit him

|

Protestors have promised that resistance to today’s visit by former U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo, R-Colo., will not go unnoticed.Last year, when UNC students gathered to protest Tancredo’s presence, a window was broken, pepper spray was in the air and the former U.S. congressman’s speech was cut drastically short to only about five minutes.

Different kind of kvetching board

|

A different kind of kvetching board made its way onto campus earlier this month. Cornerstone, a Christian student group, placed a blank board outside the Pit to allow students to write down the reasons why they are not Christians. The responses ranged from questions about hell to doubts about the veracity of the Bible.
