So proud to make the list... thank
Both me and my mom made the list!
This article is weak and mean-spirited. Today's hip hop acts have taken hip hop back to 3rd grade, with their over-simplistic and boring beats, mother goose level of skill, and complete lack of substance or innovation. But let's pick on the "ancient acts" and compare them to Cheech and Chong. Gary, you're pathetic.
Dean Smith made the list, as a member of the board of advisers for People of Faith Against the Death Penalty. Given what we know of his personal history I would assume that is Coach Smith. Does anyone know for sure?
On the other hand Andy Griffith did not make Art Poop's poop-list. Perhaps that was an oversight, or maybe to Art and his Pooper-Scoopers the "only good lefty is a dead lefty."

I eagerly await hearing Proudly Unaffiliated tell us how great this website is in a proudly unaffiliated non-partisan manner.
Come on guys! I'm making it easy for you! here's another trail of breadcrumbs. scroll down to "Moral Mondays" and below.... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pat_McCrory
What a dreadfully designed site. Is Art running low on funding for his various mouthpiece organizations? Are decent web designers too ashamed to work for Civitas? Or is Art doing an Ayn Rand, paying his "taker and moocher" web designers what he thinks they're worth?
Why am I not on this list?! This is outrageous. Please update accordingly!
Please let Civitas know I'm a dangerous militant and need to be added to the list. Roger N. Kirkman
P.S. Make sure they get a shot of me in right profile. Also, there are other Roger Kirkmans in the area, so let them know not to get the middle initial wrong. My cousins will be upset if they're mistaken for me. They're all shorter than me, but John Hood may not know that.
I'm listed and most of my info is completely wrong.
That's the least navigable website I've seen in a long time. Did Art code it himself?
In your article, you're missing the most critical piece of the financial model for this project! The $4.5m would be generated by the ArtCenter selling its current facility to a hotel development group - and it's the taxes generated from this hotel project that would provide the requested $4.5m over a 25 year period. The funds WOULD NOT be coming from citizens" property taxes! But additional tax revenue from the hotel could also go towards other civic improvements that everyone was bringing up - making it a double win for everyone! Remember the current ArtsCenter site is zoned for commercial development anyway. Seems like a great opportunity to me! Without the ArtsCenter selling its current facility, this NEW tax revenue won't exist - everyone's loss.
I'll confess.....I was there 3 times this week!
Due to a late flight, Savage Knights will play at 9, with White Cascade starting at 10.
Their rapini is so good I once had it for dessert. I love this place, and I grew up eating in those "Northeastern enclaves."
Durham can definitely provide an audience as big if not bigger than Asheville! Besides being surrounded by some of the biggest universities we also have a lot of cities around the triangle at short distance that would stop by (Raleigh, Carrboro, Chapel Hill, Winston Salem, Greensboro, High Point, Charlotte, Cary..) or people could visit during the day. Durham has been up and raising for the past years and provides for a great night life similar to Asheville.
I`m interested to see what time of the year it would take place and which venues would work with them. (DPAC , Carolina Theater, Surf Club, Full Steam, Motorco, Pinhook, Beyu Caffe..).
"Look deeper though, and you'll see the same impulse at work in the Duke reversal and at UNC. It's the impulse to ignore social problems and put "tradition" ahead of intellectual exploration and outreach—especially when tradition means the people in power can stay in power while others know their place."
I agree with this, especially the last part. All the craziness, in my view, is a function of the universities being ivory towers that have limited accountability to anyone or anything specific and the folks in charge like it that way. In other words, negative feedback is practically non-existent from the real world, so part of a university goes well and truly off the rails from time to time. When that happens, the main sin is the embarrassment suffered by those in charge. But in reality, the whole deal is always off the rails, it just doesn't make the news all that often.
No need to rehash all the examples, though this recent nuttiness is very entertaining. Duke Lacrosse still remains my all-time favorite derailment. (And it is worth noting that Duke has the same leadership now as it had back then....hmmm.)
RE: "Who had more members involved in the Academic issue at UNC?"...
A better question might have been "Which group had a greater percentage of members involved in the Academic issue at UNC?", as there are 107 members of the football team listed on UNC's 2015 roster, while there were 2,837 fraternity and sorority members (as of 2010 - but that number would not have changed significantly). I'd fully expect a group 27 times larger to have more people involved.
Now, I have absolutely no idea which group had the larger percentage of members involved, and as the issue seems to be getting worked on I don't really care. However, I do care about attempts to persuade people using misleading statistics....
Word? $50 for burgers and beer? GTFOH!
