As a retired teacher, I was really interested in your story on BB@T and objectivism [“Capitalism on Campus,” Dec. 23]. I think the reporting and writing were superb, and the article was certainly fair and balanced. You laid out the issues with admirable clarity and, given that this news magazine is clearly leftist, you refrained from editorializing that is of the blatant ilk.
It’s the best piece of journalism by a local reporter I’ve seen in my seven years in town.
My general thought on the substance of the article is that there were too many stipulations on the part of BB&T. Were I on the faculty, I’d have voted nay on the proposal as, to me, it interferes too much with normal faculty processes, vis-a-vis curriculum content and hiring.
