John V. Orth: Governor’s speech

Regarding the Oct. 13 news article “ McCrory offers higher-ed vision”: Speaking to an audience of faculty, students and friends of the University of North Carolina at the 221st anniversary of higher public education in North Carolina, Gov. Pat McCrory said that colleges should be “honing in on skills and subjects that employers need.”

Perhaps the governor should hone (that is, sharpen) his language skills before he homes in on (that is, moves toward) other skills that employers need.
