The 2012 Presidential Election has been called “The Social Media Election,” and the essence of that label played itself out in the disturbance on campus at The University of Mississippi. The events Tuesday have stirred up controversy, both on a regional and national level.

When reading a recent article in the New York Times about Amazon and its apparent goal of monopolizing the bookselling industry, one sentence in the story stood out as an epiphany to me.
A sentence from the article “Booksellers Resisting Amazon’s Disruption” reads: “Amazon can do many things, but it still cannot let readers examine a book before buying.”

Last year in my weekly opinion column, I frequently wrote in support of Gov. Mitt Romney. I truly believed he was the best candidate in the presidential race, but perspective changes, and I was wrong. Throughout his career, the GOP primary and the general election, Gov. Romney has consistently proven himself unfit to be president of the United States and incapable of – or unwilling to — unite our divided nation.

I mean, really though, who didn’t laugh at Joe Biden’s derisive reactions during the vice presidential debates? Probably Republicans, now that I think about it, but if you’re not a Republican, I bet you were having a grand time. When Obama or Romney make snarky remarks to each other, my friends and I start laughing because we’ve finally got a glimpse of how enraged these candidates are at each other for spreading so many lies over the last eight months.
Incivility makes candidates human.

This past Sunday I saw Christian apologetic Larry Taunton speak at First Baptist Oxford. I approached him afterward to discuss the themes of his message, but he was busy greeting others and helping his Fixed Point Foundation sell DVDs he teased at during his sermon. He dismissed himself once those who were interested in purchasing merchandise had dispersed, showing no interest in speaking with me.

“I believe in segregation like I believe in Jesus.”
The previous statement is entirely fictitious. Admittedly embellished, as well, yet it embodies the ideology of some of those who were strongly opposed to James Meredith enrolling in classes at The University of Mississippi.
Meredith had to overcome more than Ross Barnett’s personal rejection to the university. He had to overcome more than the then-chancellor’s comment that his denial of admittance was not contingent on him “being a Negro.”

In 1962, U.S. Marshals were ordered to go to The Univer- sity of Mississippi to escort James Meredith so he could enroll in classes. Five of those marshals returned to the Ole Miss Student Union Monday morning to speak about their experience on campus during the 1962 integration.

Five of those marshals returned to the Ole Miss Student Union Monday morning to speak about their experience on campus during the 1962 integration. People filled the ballroom in the Union to hear the panel of five former U.S. Marshals and the James Meredith’s son, John Meredith.

David Villalobos is either the bravest man in the world, or the most misinformed. I’m inclined to go with the latter.
“Becoming one with the tiger,” as he said was his desire when he jumped out of his train car on the monorail that travels over the Bronx River and through a forest that is part of the 265 acres that make up the Bronx Zoo, had to be a case of misinformation on his part.

Tweeting has become second nature for some of us. You tweet what your friend wore to a party the night before, you tweet what you wore to the same party and then you tweet who looked better.
Tweeting has become a vital part of our social, personal and professional lives. Next to Facebook, it’s that all-important action that keeps you connected and pertinent in this digital world in which we live.

“The university is respected, but Ole Miss is loved. The university gives a diploma and regretfully terminates tenure, but one never graduates from Ole Miss,” is a quote from alumnus Frank Everett that hangs from the wall of the Student Union.

In the midst of tough economic times, the University of Mississippi has been incredibly successful in raising funds through private donations, so much so that the 2012 fiscal year was the second-best fundraising year in the 165-year history of the university.

With the Republican National Convention about to get underway, the burning question for CNN right now is: How does the 24-hour cable news network recover from, what a story in the L.A. Times calls, “one of the worst crises in its 32-year existence?”
