It seems like the good old days for North Carolina, or at least much better than recent times. The second-ranked Tar Heels are again atop the Atlantic Coast Conference, among the nation's elite and united under Coach Roy Williams, who in less than two years has helped to heal the "Carolina Family" after the brief and stormy reign of former coach Matt Doherty. North Carolina is positioned to win its first outright ACC title since Hall of Fame coach Dean Smith still worked at the Dean E.

There were no seasons in Paradise. Even in the Golden Age of classical mythology -- when, under the care of the harvest god Saturn, the Earth itself, untouched by hoe or ploughshare, yielded an ample sufficiency of everything -- the Roman poet Ovid tells us ver erat aeternum: Spring was everlasting.

It'll be pop and circumstance at the University of North Carolina-Charlotte's graduation ceremony next month, with Clay Aiken among the graduating class. The "American Idol" runner-up will pick up his diploma Dec. 20, his publicist said. And for only the second time in the school's seven-year history, graduation guests must have tickets to attend. Each ticket will be printed with a bar code and scanned at the door to prevent the use of counterfeits.

Roy Williams sat in his office in the Dean E. Smith Center and remembered how he had anxiously scanned a third-floor hallway at the Los Angeles Athletic Club in April, searching for a pay phone. The way Williams tells it, if he had found it -- it is tucked away in the business center next to the bar -- he would still be the coach at Kansas.

November 16, 2003 | Jim Sleeper, Jim Sleeper, a lecturer in political science at Yale, is the author of "Liberal Racism" and "The Closest of Strangers."
Liberalism is "living on borrowed time -- taking for granted the spiritual and cultural resources that liberals depend on but do nothing to replenish," writes historian David L.
