  • All-time best reality TV show is coming to Raleigh

    I’m talking about Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, a refreshing television show that showcases voluntary charity, promotes community togetherness, highlights fraternal love, and celebrates serving those in need. It’s the only reality-based “reality TV” show, let alone the only one that doesn’t rely on people making abject fools of themselves…

  • The difference between sports reporting and political reporting

    Embattled NC State athletics director Lee Fowler made this acknowledgment, when asked by NC State’s Technician what was the biggest issue facing NC State athletics: It’s probably the message boards on the Internet. There is so much negative stuff coming off the boards, and I think that drives the…

  • Just in time for NC State: generic college FB coach application

    No need to “reinvent the wheel” rolled out by DJ Gallo on ESPN.com Page 2. Some highlights: What is your expected annual salary? a) Approximately double the budget of the university’s arts program b) I am flexible, but it must have at least six zeroes in it…

The Rev.

  • Look who’s cutting prices! (Hey, wages are prices.)

    Fresh off having a volunteer staffer drop his name to cut in line for a PS 3 — at a Raleigh Wal-Mart, no less — professional Wal-Mart basher, poverty pimp and UNC administrator who’s Not Running For President and Isn’t Being Political We Swear John Edwards has…

  • Because if there’s one thing college students don’t talk about, it’s sex

    Another Very Silly Cause at UNC-Chapel Hill. Instead of bat-brained feminists, imagine the national outcry if a fraternity had just reduced “women’s sexuality” to chocolate raspberry, mint and watermelon flavored lubricants. I’d have great respect for any woman there who slapped the presenters across the face.

  • In contempt for John Edwards’ entitlement spirit

    Yesterday I wrote in praise of the entrepreneurial spirit — cheering the story of the Cary man who went to the homeless shelter to hire people to stand in line for him to get a Playstation 3 game console. He’s paying the homeless men $100 bucks a day and…
