    Larry McBennett: Wrong prescription

    Regarding the April 12 Point of View “4 steps toward fixing college athletics”: I agree with Duke professors Andrew Foster and Jeff Ward’s initial point. It is a myth that “big-time college athletics can thrive without undermining academic integrity.” I disagree...

    Paul Bassett: Shell games

    So, according to Michael Jacobsin his April 18 Point of View “The politics of poverty,” the outrageous cost of homes in San Francisco is a result of liberal policies, the most egregious of which (since it’s the only one he actually cites) is the high cost of eggs due to the ...

    Robin Rogers: The lament of the unemployed

    I hope that letter-writers who seem to know all about what goes on in the life of someone unemployed never find themselves out of work in a terrible economy.

    Charles Putterman: No place for bias

    Regarding the April 13 Point of View “A win for the politically correct”: The fact that a majority endorses discrimination in any form does not make it acceptable. There may be room for debate of economic theory, art, even politics, but there are things that are (or ought to be) sacrosanct...

    Gene Montgomery: A market win

    Regarding the April 13 Point of View “A win for the politically correct”: It was interesting to read the piece by the lawyer from Charlotte decrying the resignation of the Mozilla CEO, apparently as a result of his support of anti-gay marriage laws in California. The attorney compared...

    R.L. Watson: Nichol-McCrory debate?

    Universities employ scholars, such as Professor Gene Nichol, to analyze problems and publicize the results. Great universities become great by tackling controversial issues. They expect criticism or should.

    William E. Jackson Jr.: Amazed and disgusted

    Regarding the April 13 news article “Nichol speaks, just not for UNC”: The report from UNC-Chapel Hill was astounding. As a native of the state who long respected the university for its liberal values, I am as dismayed by timid university leaders like Provost Jim Dean (“that...
