Required Reading

In response to a controversial reading assignment at the University
of North Carolina , requiring incoming freshman to read "Approaching
the Qur'an: The Early Revelations" by Michael Sells, General Assemb-
ly lawmakers announced on Tuesday a proposal to protect North Caro-
lina college students from dangerous ideas.  The statute, if passed,
will restrict taxpayer-funded universities in North Carolina to a
State-sanctioned list of recommended readings.
