Looking back

Here's what The Indy was writing about the week of Oct. 1:

5 years ago: Bob Geary analyzed whether John Edwards' U.S. Senate campaign might depend on questions of morality and character, given both the Clinton sex scandals in general and Edwards' affiliation with Clinton in particular.

10 years ago: Hal Crowther examined the dreary perils of political correctness after six white Durham students were sent home for wearing cowboy hats, which had apparently become a racist symbol.

20 years ago: Katherine Fulton investigated whether North Carolina faced danger from potential Cold War-era nuclear strikes and spoke with a pair of Greenboro-based civic defenders who were questioning the worth of federal nuclear defense strategies of evacuation.
