Christopher Offutt, assistant professor of English and screen writing at The University of Mississippi, will screen an episode he wrote and produced for the HBO show “Treme” tonight at 7 p.m. in 207 Bishop Hall.

As a producer and writer for both “True Blood” and “Weeds,” Offutt hopes screening the show will explain the process of screen writing to future producers.

The week after Spring Break 2011, I wrote a column regarding the talk therapy offered on campus at the University Counseling Center, located across the street from Bishop Hall.

With yesterday being the first Sunday of Lent, it is only appropriate to write what is first on many people’s minds (other than Spring Break). For some reason, some of my friends think Lent is only observed by Catholics. I’m not Catholic; my whole family is actually Presbyterian. This season is a time for all Christ-believers, even those who do not consider themselves Christian but are wanting to learn more about God and the Church.

With a circulation of approximately 14,000, The Daily Mississippian is one of the largest student-run daily newspapers in the country and consistently ranked in the top 20 best college newspapers according to the Princeton Review.

A new subdivision will bring small and inexpensive housing to Oxford.

The subdivision featuring “Katrina cottages” will be located on Highway 7 South near the intersection of South Lamar Boulevard. Katrina Hourin, assistant city planner, said she is familiar with these cottages and thinks Oxford will benefit from them.

With nearly everyone riding the low that comes shortly after the high of spring break, I figured I’d lighten the mood on this most depressing of Monday mornings by taking a “Floydian” approach to stressors.

Not feeling exactly in the mood to compose a liberal rant about Christine O’Donnell this week (though it would take much less effort than this will; honestly the jokes write themselves), I decided I would instead display once again my Old Man Syndrome by regaling you with tales of how things used to be at Ole Miss.
