Anne Thomas: Misdirected energy

April 21, 2014 

How disappointing to read the April 13 news article “ Nichol speaks, just not for UNC.” It is a classic case of don’t like the message, kill the messenger.

Gene Nichol has been conveying a message for over a year that disturbs, embarrasses and, indeed, shames us. Would that the energy being expended in trying to mute his message were directed to rectifying the deplorable conditions that he has described.
