Typhoid Mary - or - Mary of Arc ??

April 24,’14:  Yesterday, today and tomorrow The Saga of “Mary Whistleblower” inexorably carves its niche into the Grand Mosaic known, at least here, as The Great Unpleasantness.  Opinions of Ms Willingham’s worth as a human being depend totally upon where on the partisan spectrum one resides.  No one from the Tru-est Tru Blue Ostrich to the most pointy-toothed, rafter-hatin’ ABCer thinks we have heard the last of.....

Typhoid Mary – or – Mary of Arc.  .....“Terrorist or Freedom Fighter” ???

So, why DID we hate New Bern?


April 21,’14:  Coincidentally, I’ve attended two reunions in the past month.  One involved my high school’s basketball program.  The other involved my college’s football program.  

I enjoyed getting together with old friends in both cases, doing what everyone does at such affairs – (1) exhuming and exaggerating dusty memories and (2) talking about those who were not there.  #2 is why it is a good idea to attend such things.

In both cases, “those people” and “those days” are part of who I am, and always will be.  So are lots of other people and days.

AP: UNC BOG Expose - Season Finale.... maybe


April 15,’14:  In what might be the exciting Season Finale of our widely-acclaimed peek into the mysterious world of the UNC Board of Governors, we muse rhetorically on how the success (or lack) of this august body is gauged.   

Our previous segments on “The BOG” have generated curiosity, acclaim and criticism.  That trifecta means we have provided a darn accurate appraisal.  We have ruffled a few feathers thru either defending the BOG or criticizing it.  Both have been warranted, we move on.....

But Dr Deborah.... it was "Just Lunch"!


April 13,’14:  About six weeks or so ago, WCHL 97.9FM in Chapel Hill aired a lengthy interview with Dr Deborah Stroman – Chair of The UNC Black Faculty & Staff Caucus.  The subject was The Great Unpleasantness.   Dr Stroman was insistent that the scandal was “racist” and being driven by deep-seated racial discrimination towards AfAm students-athletes and faculty.   I listened to her comments with sincere interest.

I agreed with certain aspects of her argument.  I questioned her conclusions on other aspects.  I was very curious to know more.  I invited Dr Deborah Stroman via email to “just have lunch” (my treat) to further discuss.  Alas.  “Just lunch” never happened. ..... sigh, sob, sniff.

AP: Is THIS The Face / Voice of UNC ??


April 13,'14:  Is THIS Bombastic Blowhard The Face and Voice of UNC and of The UNC System ??  From Elizabethy City to far off Cullowhee and all campuses in-between - does Mean Gene Nichol speak for the alumni, students, faculty and staff of those institutions?

Is it in the financial best interests of those 16 institutions, that anyone might assume that Gene Nichol's incendiary tirades and insults of the purse-holders for The UNC System DO serve the best interests of those schools.  Does Mean Gene have "the Right" to sort of, kind of appear to be The Face & The Voice of UNC?  

The N&O and Gene's colleagues think he does.  Do you?  Here's what AgentPierce thinks....

AP: These Sumb*tches Are NUTZ!


April 12,'14:  Over 50 years one man's curiosity has led him from a burning cross in Lenoir County.... to a para-military vigilante gathering at Duke University.... to a chanting street mob in Downtown Raleigh.

They all had messianic leaders spewing incendiary rhetoric.... using scripture to validate their rhetoric.... and they all encouraged mob action against their fellow man.... and, in the considered opinion of that curious observer..... all These Sumb*tches are NUTZ!

AP: That Darn UNC-BOG.... Whazzup ??


April 8,’14:  I am on constant alert for issues that everyone agrees are “issues”.    Finding a dozen who agree what we oughta do is about any issue is another matter.   The rare  gotta do SOMETHING abouts   are sure fun to discuss.

Climate change – Nope.   Voter Fraud – Nope.    One & Dones – Nope.  

That Darn UNC-Brd of Governors IS a universal “Gotta do something” issue.

College Sports WILL Be Changing.


April 7,’14:  This Northwestern Union thingy might not be “the straw”..... even The Dreaded O’Bannon Case may not “do it” BUT the camel’s back of Big Time College Sports is hanging by the slimmest of threads.  It IS going to break and soon. “Soon” being within three years..... or sooner.

A victim of its own gluttony?  A Tower of Babel built by decades of unresponsive ostrich management?  ESPN?  The Internet?  A bread & circus constituency?  The natural evolution of all cultural mores?

I vote for all of the above.  BUT, not to worry Bunky....
