    No you're a UNC fan or maybe graduate who is embarrassed by your school and what he said about it. I'm glad to see the man I voted for is honest and not afraid to challenge the majority. If you can't get into Carolina you would have to be a little slow and you think it's hard so that says alot.

    The attack on the liberal arts has been replayed over and over. It was actually part if the efforts that lead to the formation of what is now State. The private religious LA colleges wanted the Land Grant monies taken from Chapel Hill (competition) and only public funding of private colleges finally overcame their resistance to expanding the UNC system. (They were ok with teacher colleges, but not liberal arts.)

    While many State fans might think think this attack is aimed primarily at Carolina, you would be wrong. State supporters thought that in the early 1960's and joined in the attacks following integration, the Dixie Classic outrage, etc. They were then surprised when funding cuts hit Raleigh as much as Chapel Hill, and the Speaker Ban law prevented them hosting international experts in science and technology.

    The organized RW attack on the liberal arts the past couple of years is part of an effort to cut public funding to education at all levels. Things like that bogus study on lifetime earnings are part of that effort.

    The same thing that athletes major in at every other D1 school. Dook has "sociology", GT has "management", NC State has "africana studies" and "parks & recreation".

    I'm guessing thrill is just saying those cupcake courses "aren't really justified". But it doesn't mean they're gonna stop using them to keep the athletes eligible. They just need to be make sure Gov Martin stays on the payroll in the event they need to run another bogus investigation to get everyone off their backs.

    Then what in H E double hockey sticks will unc's athletes major in then. The Swahili classes have gotten too hot to handle with the NCAA looking over their shoulders, so what's left.
