The Oxford Downtown Council will host its third annual Spring Open House this weekend on the Oxford Square. Events will include live music Friday night and family-friendly events will be held throughout the day Saturday, all of which will be on

the courthouse lawn. The George McConnell Acoustic Duo will kick off the festivities Friday night with a free concert from 6-8 p.m. This will be the first time the Spring Open House has featured live music the Friday before. Mark Huelse, president of the Oxford Downtown Council, said the council tries to im-

prove the event every year. “Every year we try to add something to it, and that’s where the members get involved,” Downtown Council President Mark Huelse said. “The music this year was an idea recommended by one of the members.” Saturday’s festivities will include many family-friendly See DOWNTOWN, PAGE 3

Obama marks 50th anniversary of Civil Rights Act AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — A half-century after the passage of sweeping civil rights legislation, President Barack Obama declared that he had “lived out the promise” envisioned by Lyndon B. Johnson, the president who championed the push for greater racial equality. Marking the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act, which Johnson signed into law, Obama lauded his Democratic predecessor’s ability to grasp like few others the


power of government to bring about change and swing open the doors of opportunity for millions of Americans. “They swung open for you and they swung open for me,” he said. “That’s why I’m standing here today. Obama spoke at the end of a three-day summit commemorating the landmark law that ended racial discrimination in public places. The anniversary has spurred a renaissance of sorts for Johnson’s domestic agenda, which included the

creation of Medicare, Medicaid and the Voting Rights Act. And against the backdrop of Obama’s own troubled relationship with Congress, there have also been fresh bouts of nostalgia for Johnson’s mastery of congressional dealmaking. “No one knew politics and no one loved legislating more than President Johnson,” Obama said. “He was charming when he needed to be, ruthless when required.” See CIVIL, PAGE 3

Remorse for the antihero BY GRANT BEEBE

I was recently asked to consider the following topic throughout the course of a Worlds Debate round: “This house regrets the rise of the antihero in media.” Barring jargon and extraneous thoughts, the issue at hand is our common humanity. As a culture, do we admire characters such as Walter White, Don Draper or Olivia Pope because we are naturally able, and overwhelmingly willing, to justify their actions? I posit that we, all too often, become entrenched by excuse justifications. That is, our popular tendency to discuss the “situations” that lead an individual to pursue whatever their dishonorable course may well be compelling but belie the whole picture. We can no longer complacently choose to discuss individuals as either the consequence of external variables or the personification of T H E D A I LY

their worst action. Author Lillian Hellman describes the process of reconciling our interpretations of personalities with normalized values and mores through describing the process of writing. Introducing her 1973 “Pentimento,” she states, “Perhaps it would be as well to say that the old conception, replaced by a later choice, is a way of seeing and then seeing again. That is all I mean about the people in this book. The paint has aged and I wanted to see what was there for me once, what is there for me now.” This process of “seeing and then seeing again” must be applied to the antihero. White, Draper and Pope, while all arguably representative of less than admirable values at times, are nonetheless fully human. The relevance of this distinction becomes clear when an actual liberation calculus is applied to evaluate the relative morality

of an action. Aquinas calculated such a system as if it were a trinity — action, circumstance and intention. Subjective analysis of the character’s situation is admittedly inherent to a full discussion of circumstance and intention but full acknowledgement of the inherently human capacity to rationalize — an affirmation of the antihero’s humanity beyond their identity as it can be associated with “bad” actions — is necessary. But why does this matter? Napoleon Bonaparte, “The Little Dictator,” imposed Napoleonic Code wherever he conquered. (Examples include Italy, Belgium, Spain, Portugal, Poland ….) It was the first modern codified system of law, designed to regulate civil society with reason, equality and freedom. Granted the means of colonialism may well be called into question, the effect of instituting a legal tradition of logic is net positive. I do not hope for my children

to grow up in a world where it is acceptable to excuse every action as though it were necessitated by one’s surroundings — everyone is not Jean Valjean. But everyone does have the capacity to exercise free will. Evaluating antiheroic characters in this light leads us to hopefully better appreciate them as examples of how not to conduct ourselves, even if the outcome is positive. The only matter to regret then, is what we all too often choose — complacency. Remembering education, and affirming the power of choice, resolves many an evil. I publicly admit that my father was right — “When you know what people are doing, and can take the time to understand them for who they are, there can be no surprises.” Grant Beebe is the opinion editor of The Daily Mississippian.

And sometimes you’re stymied,” he said. “You’re reminded daily that in this great democracy, you are but a relay swimmer in the

Its purpose is to support merchants and businesses around the Square, according to Will Hunt, CEO and president of William G. Hunt & Associates.

Using Johnson’s domestic successes as a model, Obama made the case that the government can still play a role in enacting social programs that can address inequalities. “If some of this sounds familiar, it’s because today we

Is ‘The Infamous’ still deep? BY JARED BOYD

It is not an uncommon entrapment for rappers to devote much of their careers to matching the success of their earliest efforts. Each Nas album comes with unfair comparisons to “Illmatic.” All nine members of the Wu-Tang Clan have had trouble chasing the critical acclaim of “Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers).” As the 20th anniversary of both of those classic albums passes, one group has found an interesting way to keep the conversation about its new music close to its most prized opus. This month, Mobb Deep, a duo from New York, reissues its landmark album, “The Infamous” in a package with a fulllength disc of new material. Whether the new content is good doesn’t matter. What’s most important is making sure the current gen-

eration of hip-hop fans is able to experience the 1995 album that helped level the playing field for East Coast hip hop. In an era when “The Chronic,” “Doggystyle” and its West Coast, funk-driven kin ruled the airwaves temporarily, Mobb Deep brought a pot of New York-style gumbo to the rap table. The success of “The Infamous” should be attributed to the distribution of labor between the duo. Prodigy did heavy lifting with the rhymes. Havoc ran the beats. In the wake of “Illmatic,” Prodigy used his gritty insight to bring a new voice to the discipline of honest storytelling Nas pioneered before him. Nas’ debut a year earlier was a coming-of-age story set to boombap backdrops for the very first time. Prodigy’s narrative was very different. His voice was as calm, and his rhyme patterns were as varied as Nas. The words, howev-

er, were hardcore. “I got you stuck off the realness,” he boasts in the opening line of lead single “Shook Ones Pt. II.” Keeping with the tone of the album, Prodigy sticks his chest out for threats, such as “Rock you in your face, stab your brain with your nose bone.” Much like the blaring horns that begin in its intro, the track stands as an alert. Havoc, the man responsible for ringing the alarm, patterned his ear for grimy, murky, sounds after Wu-Tang Clan’s The RZA. His drums that snapped like crisp vegetables to complement his samples. Melodic jazz fusion compositions from Quincy Jones, Herbie Hancock and Norman Connors effortlessly floated across thumping kicks, snares and static hi-hat patterns. Not many artists, regardless of age or genre, can claim responsibility for a more cohesive set of songs. As much as “The Infamous” was a gift in Mobb Deep’s discography early on, it has been

a curse ever since. Among rap acts with albums deemed classic, Mobb seems more consumed with the idea of outdoing itself than others. Countless efforts from Hav and P reference “The Infamous” by title, 29027

Rebels host A&M in Chadwick’s last home match BY DYLAN RUBINO

After picking up three wins against Arkansas-Pine Bluff Wednesday to improve to 11-12 overall, the Rebel Netters will take on Texas A&M Friday in the last SEC home match of the season. The match also marks the last home SEC match for head coach Billy Chadwick, who has seen a lot in his long, historic career with Ole Miss.

“My dad was an Aggie,” Chadwick said. “He has passed away, but I am in hopes that he will give us a little help from above to beat the Aggies.” The Rebels took care of business against Arkansas-Pine Bluff Wednesday, as they won every singles match in all three matches. The Rebels will look to improve their 3-8 record in the SEC as they take on 10th-ranked Texas A&M. Texas A&M enters the match

visiting teams, especially when the Rebels come to town. Ole Miss head coach Mike Bianco said the team is preparing for one of the more hostile SEC environments of the season. “It’s exciting for (the players),” Bianco said Wednesday night. “That’s why they come to play (at Ole Miss) and play in the SEC. You want to play in those types of atmospheres. I think

the guys are excited for it.” Ole Miss junior right-hander Chris Ellis will get the nod for the Rebels Friday night. Ellis is 4-0 on the year with a 1.88 ERA. The Bulldogs’ starter will be junior lefty Ross Mitchell, who holds a 5-2 record with a 1.52 ERA. Redshirt sophomore lefty Christian Trent (4-0, 2.41 ERA) will take the hill for the Rebels

Saturday, while Mississippi State will start junior right-hander Trevor Fitts (2-2, 3.41 ERA). Ole Miss right-handed pitcher junior Sam Smith (4-2, 2.22 ERA) will start the series finale. Mississippi State’s Sunday starter has not yet been determined. First pitch Friday will be at 6:30 p.m., Saturday’s at 3 p.m. and Sunday’s at 1:30 p.m.
