Our first visit to Warren Wilson College was in 2010 to hear Bill McKibben, environmentalist, author and founder of the first global climate-change movement. It is the perfect, bucolic setting for recognition of what we citizens of the Earth need to do.
Now that we live near, we’re able to visit more often and attended a recent fiddle and banjo competition there and took out-of-state visitors to see the campus.
Needless to say, your news about the high rate of students smoking casts a cloud over the image of Warren Wilson [“Smoke and Mirrors: Big Tobacco Smokes Warren Wilson College, May 6, Xpress]. Save the Earth, but not the students?
