The 2012 presidential election is less than a week away, and the deciding factor could once again be the youth vote.

The 2012 presidential election is less than a week away, and the deciding factor could once again be the youth vote.

Some students at Ole Miss are aware of each candidate's positions and strengths, but they are still in the process of deciding for whom they will vote, based on different aspects of the candidates' platforms.

Freshman theatre major Jasmine Hawkins, focusing on social issues, said she finds herself agreeing with President Obama’s open stance more than with that of Gov. Mitt Romney.

We celebrate the 50th anniversary of integration at Ole Miss this year. This anniversary happens to take place four years after the nation watched the man who would become the first black president debate his opponent right here in Oxford. We should all take a moment to appreciate just how far our nation and community have come.
We’ve evolved dramatically in the past several decades but the growth has not come without pains. This university had to endure riots, tens of thousands of National Guard soldiers and the loss of two lives before accepting integration.

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.

Once again we are leading up to an election with two candidates to choose from who have been painted as opposites of one another.
Case in point: Romney for Big Oil, Obama for clean energy; Romney for lowering taxes among the wealthiest, Obama for raising taxes among the wealthiest; Romney for tighter immigration, Obama’s DREAM act; Romney pro-life and Obama pro-choice; Romney against same sex marriage, Obama for same sex marriage.

It’s been said that being a Republican this year is like being single in your 30s – you’ve seen better, but you’re just going to have to settle with what you can get. Some Republicans argue that Mitt Romney was the least conservative candidate this year and are disappointed about his eventual nomination in Tampa. They shouldn’t be.

As Mitt Romney claimed his third win of the primary season in Nevada Saturday night, the fight for the nomination continues — Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum and Ron Paul have all pledged to stay in the race.

Poise, charisma, substance and electability.

These are four essential qualities any successful presidential candidate must have. In the primary for the 2012 Republican nomination of president, only one candidate has these attributes. That candidate is former governor of Massachusetts, Mitt Romney.

Last week, Brigham Young University (BYU) basketball star Brandon Davies was suspended from the Cougars basketball team for violating the university’s honor code.

Last week, Brigham Young University (BYU) basketball star Brandon Davies was suspended from the Cougars basketball team for violating the university’s honor code.

After seeing what rule he broke (to me, it seemed ridiculous that the nation’s third-ranked team dismissed its third leading scorer and leading rebounder for violating it), I decided to research the BYU honor code and see what other rules that thousands of college athletes surely break every season.

I hope you don’t mind me hiding under the covers of this newspaper — it’s been some time since my last confession, and after comparing my life to the Honor Code described in this column, I’m afraid I sin like a champion.

Dear readers, thanks for making time for me today.

I hope you don’t mind me hiding under the covers of this newspaper — it’s been some time since my last confession, and after comparing my life to the Honor Code described in this column, I’m afraid I sin like a champion.
