ASB personality election results announced By Jhesset Thrina O. Enano

The Associated Student Body announced the results of the 2013-14 personality elections yesterday on the steps of the Lyceum. Senior exercise science major KayKay DeRossette was elected Miss Ole Miss, and run-offs for both Mr. Ole Miss and Homecoming Queen will be held Thursday. According to ASB Attorney General Rob Pillow, a total of 5,570 students voted Tuesday. DeRossette defeated senior integrated marketing communications major Blair Jackson. Of the 5,388 total votes cast for Miss Ole Miss, DeRossette received 2,981 votes, or 55.32 percent, while Jackson received 2,363 votes, or 43.85 percent. “I’m just really grateful to be able to represent this university as Miss Ole Miss, and I’m really grateful for everybody that helped me get here,” DeRossette said. According to the ASB Constitution and Codes, run-offs occur when no candidate wins 50 percent of the total votes. Of the 5,471 total votes for Mr. Ole Miss, public policy leadership senior Rob Pyron garnered 1,933 votes, or 35.33 percent, while print journalism senior Houston Brock received 1,371 votes, or 25.05 percent, result-

ing in a run-off. Diego Garcia, Corbin Holtzman and Ruben Ruiz were eliminated from the election Tuesday and will not be on Thursday’s run-off ballot. With 5,283 votes cast, the Homecoming Queen election also resulted in a run-off between Megan McBeth and Madison Coburn, both public policy leadership seniors. Mc-

Beth received 2,206 votes, or 41.75 percent, and Coburn received 1,696 votes, or 32.1 percent. Brittani Acuff was eliminated from the election Tuesday and will not be on Thursday’s run-off ballot. The run-off election will be held tomorrow from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The results will be announced tomorrow evening.

Freshman Chloe Sumrall, sophomore Jennifer Hicks, junior Anna Grey McCraw and senior Anna Beth Higginbotham were elected as class maids. Coburn and McBeth were elected female campus favorites, along with Rachel Crim, Morgan Gregory and Camden Hastings. Tim Abram, Adam Blackwell, Jeremy Holliday, Matthew

Keifer and Ruben Ruiz were named male campus favorites. Pillow was pleased with the overall voter turnout and the way candidates ran their campaigns. “We got a lot involved,” he said. “It was a very clean election. Everyone ran a great campaign and followed the rules very well.”

Pro-gun lobby misfires By Christine Dickason

PATRICIA THOMPSON director and faculty adviser

Last week, the nation was horrified to hear about the mass shooting that occurred at the Navy Yard in Washington, D.C. But were people shocked? Unfortunately, probably not. Mass shootings have become an integral part of American culture. Since 2005, there have been at least 32 mass public shootings. We’ve become numb to these massacres. It’s just another day in the land of the free. There are clear reasons behind our reluctance to confront the problem. The most obvious is the National Rifle Association (NRA), which has most of the politicians on Capitol Hill in its pocket. In fact, the NRA and its allies have funneled over $81 million into the House, Senate and presidential campaigns since 2000. In 2012 alone, the NRA gave $650,000 to members of Congress. (Ninety percent of the

recipients were Republicans). Yet, despite its abundance of money, the NRA often seems to fall short on words. The NRA handles mass shootings with one tactic: silence. After the Aurora, Colo., theater shooting in 2012, the NRA’s Twitter account was inactive for 10 days. After the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting? Four days. The pro-gun lobby has successfully manipulated the national conversation and is holding politicians hostage. They’ve spread this idea that all we really need is a “good guy with a gun” to prevent mass shootings. Give me a break. Are you really willing to believe that a moviegoer in Aurora could have stopped Holmes, the shooter, with a handgun? I’m sure it would have been easy to take one extremely accurate shot—except for the smoke, darkness, confusion and the shooter’s protective gear, of course.

SLAPP in the face of the First Amendment

By Whitney Greer

The First Amendment of the United States Constitution explicitly states that the freedom of speech is an inalienable, constitutionally protected right. This right has been consistently redefined, particularly in regards to advances in technology. The Internet, since its inception, has posed as a vehicle for speech and expression, and user content-generated websites are a prime example of this. As of late this linchpin of our cultural lexicon has found itself in the crosshairs of a practice that intimidates citizens into silence: SLAPP lawsuits. Strategic Lawsuits Against Public Participation as they are formally known, SLAPP lawsuits are nothing more than an intimidation tactic used by companies and private citizens attempting to silence voices via the Internet. Masquerading as defamation or slander, they have little to no legal merit. The purpose they serve is to intimidate, dissuade and otherwise bog down citizens with legal fees and processes rather than using the law to remedy an actual wrong. This year saw everything from comics to churches ridden with the SLAPP happy fever. In one instance Matthew Inman’s com-

ics were posted en mass without credit towards him on the website FunnyJunk. Inman then penned a blog post protesting this unauthorized usage of his comics. FunnyJunk then lambasted Inman with a defamation lawsuit citing $20,000 in damages. Inman then distributed the meritless letter around the Internet and collected $200,000 in donations to fight the looming legal battle. However, Inman chose to donate this money to charity, and FunnyJunk soon begrudgingly dropped their illfounded intimidation lawsuit. This tit-for-tat behavior is expected among the world of commerce, but came as a surprise when a Beaverton Oregon Church filed a SLAPP suit against their fellow brothers and sisters in the faith. Former estranged church members had commented on their experience at Grace Bible Church by writing online reviews. Grace Church in response opted out of turning the other cheek and instead turned around and filed suit. The difference in this case is it’s setting in Oregon, a state with anti-SLAPP laws. The judge recognized the puffery, and accordingly dismissed the case and saddled Grace with the defendant’s legal fees. Close to 50 percent of states don’t have any anti-SLAPP statues, which leads to long and messy legal battles in which the SLAPPs are stifling the freedom of speech. The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) has joined with consumer review

continued from page 2 ment if the ACA is not defunded. Why is the ACA relevant? According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, the ACA would allow 2.6 million Americans with mental illness and/ or substance abuse issues to be eligible to enroll for health care in the new insurance market which begins on Oct. 1. This increase in eligibility is mainly due to the act’s provision that prohibits insurers from denying health care coverage due to pre-existing conditions, an issue that many people with mental illnesses have struggled with in the past. The ACA also requires that every health care plan sold through the exchange must cover mental health care under the “essential health benefits” provision. So why are Republicans so adamant in their attempts to cripple the act? It’s exactly what we need to prevent gun violence, right? It’s clear from this contradiction that pro-gun activists don’t really mean what they say about mental

based Yelp to battle SLAPPs. The goal is to achieve federal anti-SLAPP legislation, which is something both sides of the aisle can get behind even in todays widespread policy gridlock. Conservative Texas and anything goes California have both passed laws confronting the encroachment upon freedom of speech that SLAPPs represent. As the law currently stands, websites that facilitate posting comments and reviews are themselves immune from SLAPP suits. Thus, corporations are squaring off with everyday consumers who were unaware that simply commenting on a product online could land them a lawsuit from multi-million dollar companies. Instead of staring into the deep pockets of corporate America, many choose forfeiture of one of their most meaningful and essential constitutional rights, the freedom of speech. Supporting anti-SLAPP federal legislation is one step of a complex samba that is adapting our nation’s laws and legal climate to the conundrum the Internet presents. The world of SLAPP lawsuits is multifaceted, but let this warping of the U.S. legal system not serve not as an excuse to stifle speech, but rather as a uniting force towards the preservation of liberty and justice for all.

health care. They simply want to use that as a way to distract from the real issue: Weak gun laws mean more dangerous weapons in the hands of those who should not have them. Politicians are so fearful of the NRA that they are more content to hold candlelight vigils after every mass shooting than to have the courage to stand up to the pro-gun lobby. This is not what we, as a country, deserve from our elected officials. Rather than retreating to attack on personal character (see “the village buffoon”) or inciting fear about specific religious groups (see “jihad denial syndrome”), it’s important that we have an open dialogue supported by facts that focuses on the safety of the American people. If we can pass sensible gun legislation that could save the lives of innocent civilians, don’t we have an obligation to do so? Let’s hope that we have learned at least one thing from these mass shootings: Inaction is deadly.

Friday’s Secret art show will support United Way

Courstesy United Way

By Amina Al Sherif

Following last week’s announcement of a fundraising goal of $525,000, the United Way of Oxford and Lafayette County is hosting an art show in Oxford on Friday, Sept. 27, although the specific location is being kept a secret. Oxford artists, musicians, painters, foodies, puppet makers and cocktail connoisseurs

are gathering to put together an art show created to break rules that confine public exhibition, galleries and the traditional concept of art itself. Dee Guised, a contact from United Way associated with the art show, said the artists’ mission is to “encourage guests to break a boundary or try something new.” Why the secret? According to Guised, it is supposed to push guests out of their

boundaries as you “have to be willing to have anything happen and be part of the event.” Examples of art displayed in the show feature food arranged in an artists’ palette, with a chef available to encourage guests to try unusual food combinations. One such possible combination is a slice of pear wrapped in bacon that may be dipped in Hawaiian charcoal salt. The show’s writing team will be present inviting attendees to take part in writing a novel, or joining others in painting a work of art. Ann Davis Weber, manager of strategic planning at The University of Mississippi’s Office of Strategic Planning, recently learned of the event. Weber, who has previously worked in fundraising and related research, noted that the unique approach to the event may spur success.

“Events are a very important part of the fundraising process,” Weber said. “ A lot of times, they do not make much money, but they generate a connection between a donor and an organization that be built on in future projects. Anything that gets people thinking about the organization, and maybe invested in it, could be good.” To find out the location of the show, a donation must be made through the Secret Show website. On the day of the show, the guest will receive an email or text identifying the location of the event and the password required for exclusive entry. To donate and discover Oxford’s biggest secret, visit secretshowoxford.eventbrite. com.

of the two-time defending national champions. “We really loved the environment that we were playing in last year,” Prewitt said. “Last year, things weren’t going our way as much as it is this year. “I think it’s really going to be a throw down.” Prewitt isn’t worried much about how the Tide offense has looked against the likes of Virginia Tech and Colora-

do State. Instead, he expects much more from the Alabama offense on Saturday night. “They were making mistakes that Alabama doesn’t normally doesn’t make,” Prewitt said. “They had players not playing that will be playing against us. We’re expecting the best Alabama team to be out there. That’s what we want.” According to Prewitt, despite the performance quarterback A.J. McCarron has put on this season, stopping the run will be the key to a

Rebel victory on Saturday night. “To have a chance in this game, we have to stop the run and get them out of their element and make them pass more,” Prewitt said. One thing the Rebels do have coming into this game that they lacked last season is confidence. However, Prewitt insists that it is a healthy confidence. “We’ve had two games last year that we lost, that we won this year,” Prewitt said. “We’re really confident, and

I don’t think it’s an overconfidence. It’s a good, humble confidence.” Not only will the Rebels go into Tuscaloosa completely different in 2013, but so will Prewitt. Over the past year, he has grown into somewhat of an emotional leader for the Rebels on the defensive side of the ball, as they really feed off of his emotion and intensity. “I guess I just try to lead by example,” he said. “Sometimes, we need to be re-focused a little bit, and I feel

like I can take over that role, and I have enjoyed doing so. “We needed a playmaker, a consistent playmaker. We do need a playmaker. I think that’s one thing we may have lacked last year. I really want to try and take over that role as well.”

Ole Miss sophomore linebacker Denzel Nkemdiche practiced Tuesday for the first time since sustaining a torn meniscus in the season opener against Vanderbilt. Head coach Hugh Freeze said he didn’t get to see a lot of him during the practice, but was pleased with what he did see from the 5-foot-11, 207-pounder. “He’s close,” Freeze said. “You can tell he’s got a slight hitch when he tries to burst, but he’s better than really I thought he would be. I think tomorrow morning will be a big test. Does it blow up or not. But if he continues to progress like that, then yeah, he’ll make the trip. “If our staff feels like he knows the plan and progresses through the week where it’s not swelling up or giving him much problem, I would suspect to see him on the field.” Nkemdiche was the team leader in tackles with 82. He also had three sacks, four forced fumbles and three interceptions. Junior Serderius Bryant has done an outstanding job filling in for the injured Nkemdiche, totaling 26 tackles in two games of action. However, having a healthy Nkemdiche on the field will provide the Rebels some much-needed depth going into a battle with No. 1 Alabama Saturday.

Last season when the Rebels showed up in Tuscaloosa, no one gave them much of a chance. To the surprise of many, Ole Miss showed up and played hard against a team Hugh Freeze calls “the gold standard” of college football. The Rebels, for however brief it may have been, held a lead on the Crimson Tide. The Rebel defense did not back down from the strong rushing attack from Alabama. In fact, they made sure to get as many big hits in as possible to show the Tide they were there to play and they were not afraid. Junior safety Cody Prewitt was responsible for a few of

those big hits, most notably a hit on Darius Hanks over the middle of the field on a third down early in the game that really set the tone of the contest. “Last year, I felt like we really went out there and played them and out-physicalled them a little bit,” Prewitt said on Monday. This season, the approach to the game is a bit different. Ole Miss, ranked as the No. 21 team in the country, is being talked about as a team that could give Alabama a test. This year, as if last season’s game did not tell enough, will be different because the Rebels aren’t walking quietly into the lair See PREWITT, PAGE 7
