As a News & Observer subscriber for over 20 years, I strongly object to the front-page coverage recently devoted to Margaret Spellings’ resignation as UNC system president (“Spellings reflects on UNC accomplishments, future,” Nov. 29). I’m sincerely skeptical of what precisely she has been able to achieve after a mere three years in such a high level job regardless of her talents.
If she was doing such an outstanding job, how come she’s leaving with only 60 percent of her contract fulfilled? Coverage like this only panders to her and executivelevel people of her ilk whose over-inflated egos are only surpassed by their over-inflated compensation packages. Craig A. Ashby
