How Billy Graham found a place in our hearts

Billy Graham’s fragile humanity came through, even in his younger, more electrifying days, deepening his connection with the masses, helping people see that he was one of them, on the same journey, facing the same struggles.

How we can secure the vote in North Carolina

Days ago, I met with other election chiefs from across the country in Washington for a series of classified and unclassified briefings on election security. The conference began just hours after the U.S. Department of Justice indicted 13 Russian nationals and three Russian companies for their efforts to influence voters in 2016. Here in North Carolina, operatives posed as Americans to spread disinformation about voter fraud before the election and organized a “Charlotte Against Trump” rally after the election, according to the indictments.

Campus sex in antiquity (or the 1950s)

If sexual candor bothers you, please turn to another item. I begin with a warning after wondering whether I am the only senior who slept through an age like Washington Irving’s Rip van Winkle and woke up in a new world that was even stranger than the “brave new world” that greeted Miranda in Shakespeare’s “Tempest.’

Respect first, then gun control

This has been an emotional week. We greet tragedies like the school shooting in Florida with shock, sadness, mourning and grief that turns into indignation and rage. The anger inevitably gets directed at the NRA, those who support gun rights and the politicians who refuse to do anything while children die.

China’s infiltration of American colleges

China’s massive foreign influence campaign in the United States takes a long view, sowing seeds in American institutions meant to blossom over years or even decades. That’s why the problem of Chinese financial infusions into U.S. higher education is so difficult to grasp and so crucial to combat.

Funding cuts and flu virus a deadly combination

Flu is causing almost 1 in 10 American deaths right now, and experts are predicting that it may well get worse before it gets better. Along with the pneumonia it spawns, this year’s epidemic may be killing 4,000 people every week. A government report out last week shows 1 of every 13 visits to the doctor was for fever, cough and other symptoms of the flu. That nearly ties the highest level seen in the U.S. during swine flu in 2009, and it surpasses every winter flu season since 2003, when the government changed the way it measures flu.

States can lead on roads

RALEIGH — When the Trump administration finally filled in the outlines of its infrastructure plan last week, many seemed to be disappointed to learn that only $200 billion of the proposed $1.5 trillion in expenditures over the next decade would come from federal coffers.

What’s going on with the Earth’s climate?

Many people may be wondering, “what the heck is going on in climate science,” and, for that matter, “what the heck is happening to our climate?” On the one hand, reports from U.S. government agencies indicate that 2017 was the 3rd warmest year on record, 1.5 degrees (Fahrenheit) above the average temperature of the 20th century, and that the 6 warmest years on record have all occurred since 2010. But, in their commentary in February 8’s N&O, Tim Ball and Tom Harris claim the reported warming cannot be detected from available data.
