In 1846, Danish philosopher Soren Kierkegaard took a survey of his surroundings and decided to offer a critique of the spirit of his age: “Ours is the age of advertisement and publicity,” he wrote. “Nothing ever happens, but there is immediate publicity everywhere.”
Obviously 1846 is long gone, but with the advent of radio, television and the Internet, the above critique is as relevant as ever:  When all is said and done, more is always said than done.

The Tea Party has gained recognition as a force in the political arena over the past several years. In 2009, the media spotlighted the organization because of its protests, rallies and general opposition to the Democratic Party. The Tea Party, however, doesn’t specifically align with the Republican party, other than in terms of similar characteristics and morals.

The Tea Party has many places with intense involvement in protest, but Tea Party Oxford is quite different from the way that the Tea Party as a whole is portrayed in the media.

When the season changes, people usually adjust to new temperatures but, at least in the Residential College South, the adjustment was a bit unexpected.
As students came back in from the winter break, those at the RC faced not only an unusual heat outside, but inside the building as well.
“On the first day we got here, we could not sleep,” undecided sophomore Austin Wheeler said. “It was way too hot.”
While students are able to control the temperature in their rooms within a few degrees, for many, that wasn’t enough.
