Dirk Bircher: ‘Thrones’ envy

April 19, 2014 

Regarding the April 13 news article “ Nichol speaks, just not for UNC”: As a graduate of UNC-CH and its law school, I was heartened to know that the chairman of the UNC Board of Trustees affirms that free speech ranks right up there with “building political bridges.” The problem is that these days this means building bridges with political leaders who would be right at home on “Game of Thrones.”
