  1. I don’t think the newspaper itself is on drugs but probably many of the reporters are. Considering what they write it would surprise me if they were not smoking dope.

  2. Pity there’s no byline on that story. I’d like to know exactly whom to excoriate.

  3. UNCG Police are State Police, employed by the State of North Carolina. Their authority is state wide just like the NC Highway Patrol. They can only infringe by operating outside their authority.
