Alison Hall: One-cent words

February 1, 2013 

One-cent words

Maybe it’s just me, but I found the quote “not based on how many butts in the seats, but how many of those butts can get jobs” rather pedestrian (“McCrory raises faculty’s ire,” Jan. 30).

These are the most eloquent words our new governor can use to express himself? I wonder whether a philosophy student could help him with his choice of words.
