  • If You Believe That One …

    The Huffington Post has an article about some vandalism supposedly done to a display “devoted to empowering survivors of violence and abuse” at UNC-Chapel Hill last week. The title of the post is “UNC ‘Courage Project’ Vandalized By Terrible Person Without Courage.” The post’s title is very likely…

  • Re: Blackboard Jumble

    DPI’s info dump might be an example of a pattern or strategy on the part of liberal bureaucrats who are forced to provide information against their wishes. A couple of years ago, UNC-Chapel Hill student Anthony Dent fought a nearly year-long battle to get line-item budget information about a single…

  • Power Play

    There’s a new website in town—one that promotes the real scoop on energy sources instead of the PR coming out of government agencies, universities, and the mainstream media.

  • A Liberal Solution for Lousy Performance

    North Carolina’s community colleges used to force 69 percent of all recent high school graduates entering academic programs to take remedial courses. This was very costly to the state, and the failure by remedial students to complete either their remedial classes and or the subsequent entry-level non-remedial math and English…

  • What about the Office of Multicultural Bilingual Equal Diverse Multiculturalists?

    N.C. State’s Office of Multicultural Student Affairs needs two assistant directors, according to the vice provost for Student Diversity. None of these positions are part of State’s Office for Institutional Equity and Diversity. No, that is not satire. However, any bored legislators or university system administrators looking for a…
