If you were watching The History Channel last week, the events in Chapel Hill looked eerily like the events used to bring Lenin, Stalin and Hitler to power.

Reminiscent of the KKK, law enforcement and the chancellor appear intimidated by the drunken mob that tumbled the Civil War memorial erected…

On Aug. 21 a crowd of protesters duped UNC campus police and toppled Silent Sam, a statue built to honor UNC students who fought in the Civil War. This brought back troubling memories from August 2017 when a small group of protesters took down a Confederate statue in Durham as law enforcement…

Draft Dodger (“DD,” aka “Dastardly Don”) couldn’t hold a candle to Great American John McCain. I say that with the calm assurance, and without fear of reasonable contradiction, that the vast majority of my fellow Vietnam War vets agree with me: Any comparison of the…

Your editorial about not being the enemy has a lot of good points on the responsibility of the media. I never took Journalism 101 but I’m guessing what you wrote was presented in that course. I noted that, either by mistake or deliberately, the words “honestly” and…

It's the beginning of another school year. I am thinking about all you teachers. Pearl Buck wrote, "Only the brave should teach." She is so right.

As university students returned last week and local schools this week, our roads are fuller with more cars, buses, bikes, wheelchairs and pedestrian traffic. After decades of being primarily car-centric, Greenville’s infrastructure for non-motorized traffic has improved some in recent years.…

The Boy Statue, aka “Silent Sam,” has been pulled down by a lawless mob while the UNC-Chapel Hill police force stood by and watched. There was a time in this land when truth held prominence, common sense held sway, and the law was respected and upheld.

Those times seem to be fading fast…

The phrase “enemy of the people” has of late appeared frequently in the news media. The president has used it frequently to castigate those who fail to accept any detail of his vision of reality. Many have commented that the phrase has been used in the past by other authoritarian rulers…

It is not clear when the Democratic National Committee and old media bestowed the term “liberal progressive” upon their constituents. A hundred years ago, “liberal progressives” were called Bolsheviks. Before the DNC/old media newspeak, liberals aspired to new ideas for old…
