Maybe they can get the statue of Denmark Vessey in Charleston shipped to them. He was a black activist that apparently had a murderous background many, many years ago.

My old Grandad used to say, "When one door closes, another one opens". Great man, lousy cabinet maker though.


and "Silent Sam" is one of the most iconic figures on unc's

campus....every student knows exactly where the statue is....and its a statue of a Confederate soldier.
Its fun watching everyone connected with unc get into a dither about stuff like this---just like I'm sure they enjoyed watching us go through the Tillman episode.....and every time I re-read the statement from the BOT/admin, it appreciate its simplicity, its honesty, and its loyalty even more.

Years ago, at a Clemson/unc baseball game in chapelhole, a bunch of us "redneck" Clemson fans in the stands started laughing and pointing and the home fans couldn't understand exactly what was so funny (the Tigers eventually won the game)....like most stadiums, some of the light blue faithful were recording tarhole pitcher strike-outs by hanging a huge "K" for each one....this was being done on a dorm balcony beyond the centerfield wall. That particular day, only 3 Clemson batters struck out, and it was early in the game....:~)

they seem to happen every few years
