President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama dance at the Inaugural Ball at the Washington Convention Center during the 57th Presidential Inauguration Monday.

President Obama sworn in for second term Julie Fancher Assignments Desk Editor Fifty years ago Martin Luther King, Jr. stood on the steps of the Capitol and proclaimed to millions of people, “Free at last! Free at last! Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!” On Monday, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, the first African American President Barack Obama was inaugurated for the second time in front of a crowd of 800,000. Although Texas is a red state, five SMU journalism students were scattered amongst the crowd to be a part of this historical moment. Inauguration Day began in the early hours of the morning as thousands of Americans from all over the country walked to the National Mall to begin lining up. Many got an early start to avoid major traffic, security lines and

not being able to sit in their seats, as happened in 2009. Last inauguration, many visitors had to walk on the interstate to get to their entrance at Capitol Hill. Visitors with exclusive purple tickets had to go through the tunnel under the National Mall and were stuck underneath during the inaugural ceremony. Police officers blamed unprecedented crowds. But this year was different. “This is a lot easier this year. It is much more organized. You couldn’t bring food or water in four years ago, and when you stood up and looked back it was just a sea of people,” Shirley McCombs said. McCombs travelled with her friend Stella Blair from Illinois to make this her fourth inauguration. She was present for both of President Clinton’s and for President Obama’s 2009 inauguration. She received her ticket by

being a member of the Electoral College and through her position as the Secretary of the Democratic Party in Illinois and the State Central Committee woman of the 18th Congressional district. McCombs and Blair knew Barack Obama before he became a U.S. State Senator, and they said they have enjoyed watching him evolve over the years into the President of the United States. “It’s so exciting. There’s just something about him. When we first met him we knew he was going to be successful,” Blair said. For many though, this inauguration was a first time experience. Howard and Nell Pizzo came from Michigan and got their tickets from being a part of the Electoral College. For the Pizzos, this was an exciting time for the country to move forward under President Obama. “I’m looking forward

to going forward and him accomplishing some of his goals,” Nell Pizzo said. Many people said that they were looking forward to President Obama accomplishing his goals of stabilizing the economy, working on climate change, immigration, gun control and health care. “We need a progressive solution to the economy and deficit. It has to be progressive and start with the middle class,” Howard Pizzo said. Most importantly, everyone was looking forward to cooperation between Congress and the president. Around 9 a.m., the National Mall had almost completely filled up all the way to the Washington Monument. P.S. 22 from Staten Island began signing to get people excited for the festivities that were still three hours away. Although everyone was waiting for hours, no one was complaining about the nice

weather. “It’s just beautiful outside! So much better than freezing [temperatures] four years ago,” April Atilabede from Fairfax, VA. said. As members of the House of Representatives and the Senate filed into their seats, Travis Monroe from Montana reflected on how monumental the date of the ceremony was. “It’s kind of amazing it falls on MLK Jr. day. I think that’s what brought a lot of people here,” Monroe said. Monroe previously worked on the Hill for Sen. Baucus. One of the two bibles used in the inauguration was the same bible that Dr. King used when he gave his “I Have A Dream Speech.” The crowd was attentive and quiet as President Clinton, President Carter and Vice

An SMU student reported an on-campus sexual assault to the SMU police according to a crime alert issued to the campus Tuesday afternoon. The student told SMU police that she was sexually assaulted by an acquaintance who has also been identified as a SMU student at the Perkins residence hall early Monday morning. Kent Best, the Executive Director of News and Media Relations said in a statement: “SMU takes all allegations of sexual assault seriously and its police department vigorously investigates all such complaints. The alleged sexual assault reported to SMU police on Jan. 21 is under police investigation. Anyone with information about this matter is asked to contact SMU Police at 214-768-3388.” This is the sixth reported sexual assault on campus since the beginning of the school year. This past September junior Donald Cuba was indicted by a grand jury for sexual assault that allegedly occurred in March 2012. His trial is set to begin on March 25. Sophomore John David Mahaffey was arrested in late September 2012 after allegedly sexually assaulting another male student. He was indicted in November and as of now there is no trial date set for that case. Dr. Lori White recently sent out an email to students, staff and faculty in regards to the sexual assault task force. The email said the task force has created an email address to "obtain feedback from the SMU community on current sexual misconduct policies and practices". The task force will accept any feedback or comments sent to until Jan. 28.


Influenza season hits peak, vaccines available on SMU campus Parminder deo Video Editor As the semester ramps up, SMU students have more than just classes to worry about. The flu season is back and it may be shaping into a bad one. According to the Center of Disease Control’s latest report, “influenza activity is high across most of the United States.” The strain of the Influenza virus varies from year to year and it is recommended to receive a flu shot as soon as it becomes available. This way the body is well equipped against the flu. But for those who faint at the sight of a needle there is also a nasal spray flu vaccine known as the “Live Attenuated Influenza Vaccine.” The flu season can start as early as October and can last until May. The season reaches its peak in January and February.

“SMU emails students with everything they need to do to get a flu shot which makes it easy and it was free,” first-year Moez Sayani said. While students run the risk of getting the flu, younger children, the elderly, and people with certain health illnesses are more prone to serious flu-related complications. The flu can spread quickly and up to six feet away. Be on the lookout for the telltales signs of coughing, runny noses, and sneezing. The CDC reports that the number of flu related deaths can range from 3,000 to 49,000 in a given season. “I am being more conscious of washing my hands and I make sure to eat healthier,” first-year Katherine Zopatti said. Symptoms include but are not limited to fever, sore throat, headaches, fatigue, and muscle aches. Students and faculty

Spring 2013 trends: what to look forward to this season Hillary Schmidt Style Editor School is back in action, so it’s time for your ensembles to be too! No more lounging around the house in T-shirts and sweats. As students at one of the most fashion-forward schools, let’s show off just how trendy we are this season. Below is a breakdown of spring’s trends so you will be prepared to flaunt your style around campus or wherever else your college life takes you.

Frills and ruffles Wanting a more feminine look? Frills and ruffles are perfect. Pair a shirt (or blouse) that has subtle ruffles with jeans and flats for daytime — whether you’re headed to class, or just walking around Dallas. More exaggerated ruffles or frills are better fitting for a formal event. In this case, the accents look best on dresses. Also, frills on booties make for a fun addition to any outfit. Look for a pair where the ruffle starts at the ankle and proceeds down to the toe.

Bold prints

Bold prints and patterns add excitement to any outfit. This style is great for adding your personal touch. Just about any pattern that catches your eye will appeal to this trend- whether they’re stripes, checkers, chevron or florals. Geometric prints also appeal to the “architectureinspired” look of spring. Look for shapes like triangles and trapezoids (hopefully you were paying attention in geometry classes!) Believe it or not, mixing patterns is certainly “in” this season. Whether a single piece contains a mixture of patterns, or you’re pairing separate pieces with different patterns, go all out if you’re comfortable with a “crazier” feel to your outfit.


As spring approaches, flowers will be blooming all over campus. This season, you can use them as inspiration for your new look. If you’re in search of a pattern to incorporate into your outfit, this will add a feminine touch. Botanical-inspired pieces work in any of this season’s most popular shades, such as blues, reds and pastels.

Black and white Yes, black and white are still in style. You’ve seen them become increasingly popular since the fall season, and it has been hanging in there ever since. So why is it still so loved? Well, because it’s easy. You can mix and match it with just about anything. But, designers’ pieces typically incorporate both colors in

Campus Events

a single piece. Another reason why this trend is so popular is because anyone can wear black and white. Not every color works for all skin complexions and hair colors, and some of you might not feel comfortable in certain shades. Black and white is a safe choice, but luckily for you, being safe can still be stylish. To enhance this trend, sport a checkered black and white piece. So many designers included this pattern in their spring lines. But, also note that white by itself is in style too. White is a go-to color for warm-weather, so you should definitely own a few pieces that are solid white. Wearing white headto-toe is appropriate this season, so don’t feel like you’re “boring.”

Beiges Beiges alone will be seen all over this season, but they also look great with black and white. It’s such an easy way to enhance your look by combining these two trends. This shade is one of the most popular colors for accessories, whether they’re all beige or mixed with white. Anything from bags to bangles, you name it.

dresses, blazers, bags and shoes.

Blue Azure, to be more specific, is the best shade of blue for this season. As the weather prepares to warm up, this bright and fun color is very complimentary to the season and the blue skies to come.

Reds Reds were in style this past season, but they’re here to stay, just like the combination of black and white. This shade adds so much more to a patterned piece, so pair a red blazer with patterned pants for example. Reds mixed with coral and pink make for a trendier look. This combination works best for

These trends will help you get excited for the upcoming season. All are fun and bright and will help to boost your mood this spring.

President faces Inauguration date highlights challenges at MLK, LBJ achievements start of new term Julie Fancher Assignments Desk Editor

Katelyn Gough News Editor President Obama, officially and publicly sworn into his second term Monday morning, is at the start, once again, of needing to renew our nation from division, economic crisis and equality turmoil. When he first began his presidency four years ago, he was entering an office that required significant work to be done to stall a variety of possible crisis. While it seems that, in many ways, President Obama is now starting again at the same place, if not even more behind, the Inaugural day and MLK holiday was one of optimism and prudent belief in future prosperity. “We made ourselves anew, and we vowed to move forward together,” President Obama said at the beginning of his address. “…when times change, so must we.” While some are calling the President’s speech to America partisan and divisive, others interpret his decisive message as an articulated beacon of hope. “He helped give us that boost of confidence that he’s going to do what he said he was going to do in his campaign,” Inauguration attendee Pamela Waylock said. “I think that everybody can relate to the struggles that he was talking about.” Obama brought up some of the most current and hotlydebated issues being faced by our country, including immigration, women’s rights and gay rights. In a crowd full of supporters, verbal promise to improve such issues was well received. “Being a lesbian, it’s awesome to be in the city and be a part of this,” crowd member Amy Hernandez said. “It was very moving.” Michael Beschloss, one of the nation’s leading presidential historians, offered his own insight into Obama’s second term at a National Cathedral forum Sunday morning. During a sort of “public conversation” with Cathedral Dean Gary Hall, Beschloss said that while Obama is not the “grand, dramatic figure” most previous presidents have been, he has nonetheless been unafraid to make bold, divisive decisions. Evident most recently in his push for legislation on gun control, the President “was willing to take that risk,” putting himself clearly on one side of a very volatile division, and

“who knows what will happen,” Beschloss said. “If he does get it passed, he’s going to look a lot more powerful.” According to Beschloss, who based many of his assertions and predictions not only on President Obama’s past four years, but also the histories of his many predecessors, if Obama is able to pass legislation regarding gun control, “it will enable him to [move forward with] some of these other things.” However, in a time with a significant gridlock between parties, Beschloss asserted that Obama would need to remain well aware of party conflict and compromise. “It’s more intense now than almost it has ever been,” Beschloss said of the disunion between parties. By the same token, “everything always looks worse at the time.” Whether or not that is true at this time for our country, Beschloss said one of the most important things for the President to build and maintain is a good relationship with the other deciding members of government. “In this atmosphere, when it’s even harder for presidents to get things from Congress, you’re probably at a little bit of a disadvantage if that is not your forte,” he said, relating it to past presidents’ successes and failures on similar terms. Following his more left-sided address, the President offered a sort of “olive branch” to Congress during the Inaugural Luncheon, with a unified tone. “I recognize that democracy is not always easy and there are profound differences in this room, but I want to thank you for your service,” President Obama said to attending members of Congress. “I’m confident that we can act at this moment.” The reception of Obama’s more “humble” approach during the Luncheon may play out in the coming weeks as discussions and possible decisions are made regarding the debt ceiling, gun control and more.

The second inauguration of President Barack Obama officially wrapped up Jan. 21, which also happened to be Martin Luther King Jr. day. It also happened to be the 50th anniversary of Dr. King’s “I Have a Dream” speech, and the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation. For many, the fact that the inauguration fell on the MLK holiday was the perfect homage to one of the many men who paved the way for Barack Obama to become the first African American U.S. President. “Dr. King made President Obama’s dream a reality so for him to speak on MLK Jr. day is a great way to honor

him,” Bakar Posey, who visited from Indianapolis for the inauguration, said. Pat Riley from New York shared similar sentiment. “Rev. Dr. King made it possible for Obama to be President and I hope one day a woman can become what this great civil rights man was,” Riley said. During the inauguration many couldn’t help but comment on the remarkable coincidence that these two events fell on the same day. “It’s kind of amazing it falls on MLK Jr. day. I think that’s what brought a lot of people here,” Stella Blair from Chicago said. In addition to this, it was also the first inauguration with the Martin Luther King Jr. memorial completed. The memorial was completed

in October 2011 after several years of construction, planning and building. “This memorial is 40 years in the making and now it will be here among the other monuments for generations to come,” said Park Ranger Mike Townsend. On the eve of President Obama’s inauguration the largest group of people the memorial has seen gathered around to pay their respects to the Civil Rights leader. “The amount of people is amazing. This is more people than I’ve seen since the dedication,” Townsend said. The memorial is inscribed with many famous quotes of Dr. King. One that is on the memorial, “I was a drum major,” is one that has stirred controversy among many who believe it makes Dr. King appear arrogant. Many visitors though were happy with the memorial and believe it was a great way to honor the man, who 50 years ago revolutionized the country with his “I Have a Dream Speech”. “I’m enjoying it so far, it looks very nice. I like the messages on it as well as the statue,” Chanel Johnson from Indiana said. Another man who helped pave the way for President Obama was President Lyndon B. Johnson. “President Johnson was deeply committed to advancing Civil Rights,” Ambassador James R. Jones said, “and that came from his first job out of college, in Cotulla, Texas, teaching mostly minorities.” Ambassador Jones was the youngest person, at age 28, to hold the position of Chief

of Staff, which was formerly known as the president’s Appointments Secretary. He began working for President Johnson in 1965, one year after the Civil Rights Act was passed, and just as President Johnson was working on passing the Voting Rights Act. “LBJ wanted to give African Americans an opportunity and to do so they have to have full voting rights, access to the financial structure of the country, and they have to have fair hearings in the court system,” Jones said. “So the Voting Rights Act was a fulfillment of his dreams.” Jones was able to meet Martin Luther King Jr. and a number of other Civil Rights leaders while working with LBJ. “I knew it was a very important time, and I recognized this was a significant part of history,” Jones said. Despite President Johnson’s work, President Obama has not mentioned him and the Civil Rights Act and Voting Rights Act in many public speeches. Jones said he believes that although he has not been as outspoken about it, President Obama recognizes he would not be where he was without the combined efforts of men like Martin Luther King Jr. and President Johnson. “When President Obama was elected I had tears in my eyes because it was such a fulfillment of what my generation tried to do to get more equality in our society,” Jones said. “And I think for LBJ this would have been such a proud, proud moment for our country.”

OBAMA: First Inaugural address discuss gay rights continued from page 1

President Biden filed into their seats. Everyone went wild as First Lady Michelle Obama, and finally President Obama, made their way outside. The swearing in was just a small portion of the day and the moment that brought many to tears was President Obama’s inaugural address. “[The inauguration] never fails to make one’s heart beat a little faster as it will today at the inauguration of President Obama,” Charles Schumer, Chariman of the Congressional Committee, said in his opening address. As President Obama took the podium, he focused his address around the theme of equality. “What makes us exceptional, what makes us America, is our allegiance to an idea articulated in a declaration made more than two centuries ago,” President Obama said. “We hold these truths to be


self-evident, that all men are created equal.” He then went into a powerful and compelling speech encouraging all Americans to take action. “Decisions are upon us and we must act,” he said as he went on to refer to himself and the country as “you and I”. President Obama announced he had plans of helping the economy, achieving sustainable energy, “respond to the threat of climate change”, ending the war in Afghanistan, and making marriage a right for all. Obama is the first president to discuss gay marriage in an inaugural address. He also addressed the changing times and the urgency of Congress and the presidency working together. “For we have always understood that when times change, so must we, that fidelity to our founding principles requires new responses to new challenges, that preserving our

individual freedoms ultimately requires collective action,” President Obama said. The speech ended with a call to action and letting the country know that, although times may seem difficult, we, as a country, will endure. As he closed, members of the crowd cried and hugged one

another as Kelly Clarkson sang “Our Country ‘Tis of Thee.” Before the benediction, which closed the ceremony, Beyoncé sang the National Anthem to a standing crowd. “I don’t know how to explain this experience to people back home,” said Nell Pozzi. “I’m still pinching myself.”

WEDNESDAY n JANUARY 23, 2013 Men ’s Basketball

Mustangs fall to Miners; 3-4 on the road Matthew Costa Staff Writer Despite a strong second half by the Mustangs (11-9 overall, 1-4 in C-USA), the SMU men’s basketball team fell to the UTEP Miners 63-54, Saturday afternoon in El Paso. After falling behind by as many as 17 points, SMU fought back to within 55-46, using a 7-0 run with 3:57 remaining in the game. After the Mustangs’ rally, the Miners matched SMU point for point. The Mustangs were forced to send UTEP to the free throw line where the Miners closed the game. The Mustangs proved to be their own worst enemy early on,

turning the ball over 11 times and shooting only 36 percent in the first half. However, UTEP’s offense proved much more efficient with a 55 percent shooting mark. UTEP’s Jacques Streeter torched the Mustang defense in the first half for 17 of his 18 total points. However, trailing 35-21 in the second half, head coach Larry Brown focused his team’s defensive efforts on Streeter, holding him to just two free-throw attempts in the final 20 minutes. Streeter was nearly perfect from the court, netting all five of his made baskets from beyond the three-point line. The Miners distanced themselves with a total of eight

3’s on the team’s way to the big lead in the second half. SMU tried to counter UTEP’s offense with junior forward Shawn Williams, who had 16 points, 7 rebounds and 2 assists. Despite the forwards 10 second half points, SMU could not dig itself out of the early hole. The dynamic duo of guards Jalen Jones and Nick Russell were the only other Mustangs in double-figures, scoring 15 and 12 respectively. The Mustangs drop to 3-4 on the road and have now lost five of their last six games after opening the season 8-1. SMU will have a chance to get back on track this Saturday, on the road against Central Florida at 3 p.m.


2013 Big East opponents finalized; signing day approaching Billy Embody Staff Writer Opponents for SMU’s inaugural Big East season have been finalized, and the 2013 visitors to Ford Stadium will include UCF, UConn, Rutgers and Temple. The Mustangs will travel to Cincinnati, Houston, Memphis and USF. While the final dates of the games have not been announced yet, the Mustangs non-conference schedule also includes Texas Tech and Baylor at Ford Stadium and Texas A&M and TCU on the road. The UConn game holds historical significance, as it is a rematch of the 1989 “Miracle On Mockingbird.” When SMU returned to the football field in 1989, critics claimed

that it was going to take a miracle for Forrest Gregg and the Mustangs to win a game. After the Mustangs lost their first game to rival Rice, two weeks later, the Connecticut Huskies were beating the Mustangs 30-14 with five minutes to go in the game. The Mustangs scored 17 points to win 31-30. The victory that took two games to achieve instead of the five years that some predicted was quickly dubbed the “Miracle On Mockingbird.” Signing Day Approaching The Mustangs also have National Signing Day coming up on Feb. 6, and the Mustangs currently have 25 commitments for their 2013 signing class. The Mustangs also have already picked up two 2014 commitments in safety Jesse Montgomery and linebacker Lance

Cottrell. The Mustangs have all but finished their 2013 class with over half of the class committing either before or over the summer. The most heralded recruit is Red Oak, Texas tight-end Jeremiah Gaines, who can play tight-end, slot receiver or outside receiver in SMU head coach June Jones Run-n-Shoot offense. He has been committed since July. The Mustangs filled a big need with Navarro Junior College running back Traylon Shead, a former fivestar running back from Corsicana, Texas, who spent the beginning of his college career at the University of Texas Austin, but spent the past year at Navarro. Shead, at 6-2, 225, is expected to fill the huge hole left behind by running back Zach Line, who graduated this year.

Sophomore shines at SMU Classic

Women’s Basketball


Lady Mustangs cruise to victory Scott Sandford Contributing Writer The Mustangs remain perfect in Conference USA, defeating Rice 73-51 in Moody Coliseum on Sunday afternoon. Keena Mays lead all scorers with 25 and helped the Mustangs improve to 4-0 in Conference USA for the first time since the 1999-2000 season. Mays made a careerhigh 6 three-pointers, helping her eclipse the 20-point mark for the sixth time in 9 games. Akil Simpson also added 16 points

and 11 rebounds, recording her fourth double-double of the season. The second half started with a pair of free throws from Simpson, a jumper from Christal Porter, and just a minute later another three from Mays. The Owls never got within 10 points after that three-pointer. The Mustangs were also able to hold the Owls’ leading scorer, Jessica Kuster, to just 5 points in the second half after giving up 11 to her in the first 20 minutes of play. SMU forced Rice into 23 turnovers, which led to 25 points for the Mustangs. The Owls were only able to force 12

turnovers and scored just 9 points off of the Mustangs’ errors. The two teams traded baskets for the first few minutes of the game before Mays hit back-to-back threepointers to give the Mustangs the lead for the remainder of the first half. The mustangs went on a 12-4 run over the last four minutes of the first half and took a 40-31 lead into the locker room at the half.

The Mustangs shot a respectable 41.5 percent from the field, but hit 10 of their 20 field goals from behind the arc. The Owls were only able to convert on 2 of 11 tries from three-point land, while shooting 38 percent for the entire game. The Mustangs’ will hit the road to face Tulsa on Sunday. SMU will return to Moody Coliseum on January 31st.

Sophomore diver Devin Burnett continued his great sophomore season by earning top honors in the Classic at SMU after earning a 3rd place finish in the one-meter dive, followed by a victory in the three-meter dive. Burnett narrowly defeated Michigan diver Jack Lee with a total of 334.75 points in the threemeter dive. The Mustang’s finished sixth overall in the very tough swimming portion of the meet. The meet was comprised of USC, Lousiville, Michigan, Purdue and Florida. USC narrowly beat out Michigan by three points with a total of 330 points. Despite their 6th place finish, the Mustangs did receive strong performances from captain

Mindaugas Sadauskas, and David Larsson. Larsson finished 2nd in the 100-yard butterfly, while Sadauskas also finished 2nd in the 100-yard freestyle. The men’s team continues their season on Friday at Texas A&M at 7 p.m. The SMU women also competed this weekend in the Austin Grand Prix. Rachel Nicol won the 200-meter breaststroke defeating former Mustang Raminta Dvariskyte. Nicol also finished 2nd in the 100-meter breaststroke.

Davis to play in Texas versus the nation All-Star game Billy Embody Staff Writer SMU linebacker Ja’Gared Davis, the sixth Mustang to be selected for a post-season all-star contest, will play in the Texas vs. The Nation All-Star Game on Sat., Feb. 2. The game is played right down the road from SMU at Eagle Stadium in Allen, Texas. Davis joins Bryan Collins, Aaron Davis, Margus Hunt, Zach Line and Taylor Reed in playing in post-season contests. The Texas vs. The Nation AllStar Game is a college football all-star game that was established in 2006. After a stellar senior season with Davis notching 77 tackles and 11 tackles for loss, as well as two interceptions, three forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries, Davis earned the

invite to the prestigious game. One of Davis’ best games of the season was his last when he had six tackles and two sacks in SMU’s 43-10 Hawaii Bowl win. Each team has about 54 draft eligible players and over 200 scouts from the NFL, CFL and other professional leagues will come to Allen to see the players perform. Over 100 players from the past five games have been selected in the NFL draft and over 500 ended up on rosters in the NFL. Since June Jones’ arrival on the Hilltop, 10 former Mustangs have gone on to play in the NFL: Thomas Morstead, Emmanuel Sanders, Bryan McCann, Aldrick Robinson, Sterling Moore, Cole Beasley, Josh LeRibeus, Richard Crawford, Taylor Thompson and Kelvin Beachum.

Editor in chief signs on rahfin faruk Editor in Chief After starting off as an eager freshman staff writer, covering everything from Tate Lectures to housing developments on campus, I caught the journalism bug. As one of the only nonjournalism students in the newsroom — I’ve pledged my allegiance to Dean Tsutsui and Dedman College — I was thrown into a world of niche words, page design and witty headlines. The experience and hard work has been worth it. This semester I am lucky enough to serve as editor in chief. I hope to continue the type of coverage that makes The Daily Campus what it is. We will be covering important events like the trial of Donald Cuba and the

opening of the George W. Bush Presidential Library. The Daily Campus is your paper. Its main purpose is to cover everything about your university, from its culture to its sporting events. I encourage all of you to be active and contribute to the paper, especially on the opinion page. This semester we have revamped the opinion page. It will now feature tweets, a Quote Worthy section and an element called Firing Lines, where you can submit a short 75 to 125 word piece about an issue you care about. Keep up with breaking news on campus by following us on Facebook and Twitter and don’t forget to vote in our “Best of SMU & Park Cities” poll. And, most of all, I hope some of you non-journalism majors out there catch the bug too.


­“Let’s eat Grandpa” Some people tend to take it for granted and forget that it even exists. Grammar is a sneaky aspect of writing that can make or break a writer’s main point. If a comma is out of place, or a sentence is in fact a fragment, then the credibility of anything that the writer is trying to convey can shortly be reduced to nothing. This is why it is important to always proofread one’s work whether it is an email to a professor or a resume to potential employers. Spell check is not always right. — Samantha Peltier, Chief Copy Editor

Gun control legislation misfires W. TUCKER KEENE Online Editor

Like much of what Washington D.C. does, the gun law proposals made by President Barack Obama last Wednesday were an overreaction to media cries to do something, anything, following the disastrous school shooting in Newtown, Conn. last month. President Obama made several proposals, each of which will either have no chance of getting through Congress, no chance of surviving a trip to the Supreme Court or no chance of actually reducing gun violence in any meaningful way. Leaders on both sides have once again trotted out the scapegoat for all gun violence in the last 20 years: violent media, and in particular violent video games. While games like “Grand Theft Auto” are morally deplorable, there is no evidence that the shooter, Adam Lanza, was at all motivated or inspired by these games, or by other violent media like rap lyrics or Quentin Tarantino movies.

Nor is there any evidence that other recent perpetrators of mass shootings were motivated or inspired by images in the media. Of course, any attempt to limit the ability of video game or movie producers to create any content they like, especially without evidence connecting this violent media to real world crime, is surely to get struck down by the courts on First Amendment grounds. Universal and more extensive background checks could have some effect, but in this case, the system worked. Reports indicate that Lanza had attempted to buy a gun but was denied because he refused to comply with the background check or the waiting period. What didn’t work is that Nancy Lanza was allowed to buy a gun while having a mentally unstable son in her home, and perhaps current law could be changed to prevent situations like that from happening (like requiring her to safely secure her guns so that her son couldn’t access them, perhaps). But the biggest overreaction is the idea of armed guards at every school. This idea was


Here we are at the beginning of a new semester. New Year’s resolutions have already been dropped (don’t fret, it’s going to be okay), and we’re back to the old habits that we had last semester. The only big difference is that half of the first-years are now affiliated with a greek organization. Things have already geared up and you can see stress lines forming upon once well-rested faces. Winter break has ended. Life begins anew under the shadow of Dallas Hall. Throughout the break I reflected on the previous semester and came to several realizations. One of the most important, I think, was that there was little creative expression in my life during the fall. This semester, I look forward to changing that. On Monday nights I will sit in a three hour photography course that I hope will teach me how to take my fancy DSLR off

the “Auto” setting. I feel silly having a nice camera and treating it like a point-and-shoot. Not only am I excited to learn more about my camera, but I’m excited to be forced to take time to create some form of art. Rarely do we take the time to observe our surroundings for more than a passing second. It is even more rare for us to explore the city in which we reside. Sometimes, stepping out of Highland Park feels like too great a stride. Yet, I know this class will force me to explore, create, look and listen to everything around me. I am thrilled. Having a creative outlet is an essential part of one’s life and should be encouraged, especially at a liberal arts school. The purpose of our education is to make us wellrounded individuals more than dump information in our minds. Therefore, the opportunity and encouragement to create something original is one of the most essential parts of our education.

warfare. These don’t rack up 20 plus deaths in a few minutes by a single weapon, but between 1976 and 2005, the Bureau of Justice reports that guns other than handguns killed on average about 200 fewer people each year than did knives. Violence by assault rifles isn’t the problem, but politicians find them an easier target. There will be more mass shootings, regardless of what Congress does to try to stop them. The assault weapon ban passed in 1994 didn’t prevent Columbine. These things will happen, and as difficult as it is for politicians to recognize, some things are out of their power. The actions of mad men are some such things. Hopefully whatever legislation that is eventually passed will fix some of the holes and flaws currently in the system, but no law can be omnipotent, and politicians need to realize this before legislating.

Finding a creative outlet michael graves Contributing Writer

first touted by the National Rifle Association (NRA) in a critically-panned press conference. Of course, what the NRA really wanted was to let teachers carry, but they couldn’t support something like that without a massive media firestorm. So they settled for the vastly more expensive idea that would have much the same effect on school safety. Schools are already incredibly safe. No one should feel scared to go to school, as shootings are exceedingly rare. Nearly every armed guard appointed to a school will never see someone attempt a shootout, and so in nearly every case, they’re a waste of taxpayer’s money, and there aren’t many governments, state, local or even federal, who have enough money to consider a policy with such little chance of positive results. Nowhere will ever be 100 percent safe, but schools are about as close as can be reasonably expected. The real gun violence issue isn’t with assault rifles being used in mass shootouts, but with handguns used in gang

One does not have to express one’s creativity through painting, photography, drawing, writing or music. Perhaps you are an economics major who, like me, cannot even draw a circle (see, there are reasons I take classes like photography and not painting). Your creative outlet may be through strategic planning or even conversation where you develop a new theory in your mind. You can even draw ideas from the business culture of Dallas. Just because you are not creating something that can be displayed in a gallery does not mean that it isn’t creative or doesn’t have artistic worth. Therefore, start a new semester with a new resolution you can actually keep. Take time to be creative. Your academic work and overall outlook will greatly benefit from your mind’s opportunity to explore, make, and grow. Graves is a junior majoring in communication studies and religious studies.

“Being true to our founding documents does not require us to agree on every contour of life.” ­— President Barack Obama, during his inaugural address “I really think the war on terror is a bunch of... Just a poor excuse for you to use up all your bullets.” —Lupe Fiasco, rapping during the pre-inauguration concert LETTER TO THE EDITOR Dear SMU Community: During this time of commemoration of the contributions of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. to equality and justice, we at SMU reaffirm our commitment to diversity in our University community. To ensure that SMU remains a place of respect and inclusiveness, we have formed a working group of the President’s Commission on the Status of Racial Minorities to address concerns and challenges, with the goal that all members of our diverse community, comprising nearly 25 percent of our enrollment, feel welcomed and respected. Unfortunately, in a campus setting, as elsewhere in society, actions may occur that reflect insensitivity or lack of thoughtfulness on the part of some. In such cases, our commitment as an institution of higher education is to act swiftly and responsibly to reaffirm our values of inclusiveness and acceptance so that such incidents do not reflect the norm. We also offer the opportunity for learning through our many multicultural programs that promote understanding and appreciation of our diverse backgrounds and experiences (http :// smu. edu/multicultural/).

Through this letter, we encourage our colleagues and students to reaffirm their own commitment to providing a welcoming and supportive environment for all students and to reflect this affirmation through their everyday activities on behalf of SMU. We also invite you to join us on Wednesday, January 23, for the Annual MLK Unity Walk at 12:00 p.m. starting from the Hughes-Trigg Student Center Commons in a show of support for diversity and solidarity against intolerance. For more information on activities commemorating the impact of Dr. King, please see Thank you for your support of SMU as a diverse and vibrant community for learning and living. Sincerely, R.

WEDNESDAY n JANUARY 23, 2013 film




Dallas theater pushes gender roles Chase Wade Staff Writer Gender stratification? Don’t ask Uptown Players anything about that, they wouldn’t know. In their annual fundraiser aptly titled “Broadway Our Way”, the Dallas theatre staple turns the tables on classic Broadway songs and let males take the lead on traditionally female-sang songs and vice versa. The result? A gender-bending blend of Broadway’s best songs with Dallas’ best voices. The evening starts swiftly with a punchy, short monologue from the show’s ringleaders, BJ Cleveland and Marisa Diotalevi. After a quick laugh Diotalevi belts a welcoming number that informs the audience that Uptown Dallas is “not just for gays anymore.” If there were any pre-conceived notions that “Broadway Our Way” was an inclusive event, those thoughts are quickly shown the door. The remaining first act is a who’s who of Broadway’s best with standards ranging from “Anything Goes” to “Marry the Man Today” from Guys and Dolls. The company ends its first act with a tease to its 2013 season that includes a medley of songs from 2013’s slated shows like “Ragtime”

A still from Steven Spielberg’s newest film, Lincoln starring Daniel Day-Lewis, Sally Fields and Tommy Lee Jones.

SMU grad nominated for his third Oscar Manning jordan Associate A&E Editor As the Academy Awards approach SMU is pleased to congratulate alumnus, Ronald Judkins on his nomination for “Lincoln” as the production mixer. In previous years, Judkins has won an Academy Award for Best Sound in 1993 for “Jurassic Park” and again in 1998 for “Saving Private Ryan”. Additionally, he was nominated in 1993 for “Schindler’s List”, in 2005 for “War of the Worlds” and again in 2013 for “Lincoln.” Judkins is nominated with fellow sound mixers Andy Nelson and Gary Rydstrom. “Lincoln” won the AFI award for movie of the year; furthermore it is nominated for 12 Academy Awards. Daniel Day-Lewis and Sally Fields star in this historical biopic about the 16th President of the United States. Needless to say, only the best of the best are used in the production for such largescale movies. He began his

relationship with “Lincoln” director Steven Spielberg when they worked on the set of “Hook” and without a doubt the Judkins made an impression on Spielberg with his talents dealing with sound. The SMU grad completed his education with a BFA in film from the Meadows School of the Arts in 1975. The alumnus’ first job was at KERA where he worked on sound for documentaries. His advice for future filmmakers, “There is no specific body of knowledge, no school, no book... a lot of this job is knowing what the important battles are. Talk to people, ask questions, listen…” “Just get a job, any kind, office assistant, production assistant, even volunteer. I’m amazed at the amount of that kind of labor this town can support. When I was in Montana working on my own film I hired some of the locals. Four of them decided to come to LA. They got bit by the bug and I thought, great now I’ve caused them to move down here and I’m sort of responsible; but they all have jobs now. You just

need to have the desire. Try.” Four years later, he made the move to California to get into the film business. He sums up his job by saying, “I’m that guy who records the original dialogue on the film set.” In 1999 he made a film called “Hi-Line”, which competed in the dramatic competition at Sundance Film Festival. Currently, he is making another film that he writes and directs titled, “Neighbors”. For those students interested in following in Judkins footsteps, Professor Mark Kerins’ FILM 3384 Sound Design and Recording course might just be the class for you. The recently refurbished soundproof studio rooms on campus located at Umphrey Lee play host as the perfect set-up for sound recording and mixing. “Lincoln” is playing at the Angelika Theatre in Mockingbird Station next to campus. Be sure to tune in to the 85th Annual Academy Awards on Feb. 24th to see Judkins hopefully go home with a third Oscar statue.

and “Kiss of the Spider Woman”. The second act continues its gender-flipping feat in the same light and quick manner as the first. However, the show takes a more serious turn with a powerhouse performance of “With You” from “Ghost: The Musical” by Angel Hernandez. Angel, who virtually goes unnoticed before his solo, uses the traditionally female song to show off his range and vocal power. Denise Lee makes a guest appearance to pay tribute to Jeff Kinman, a recently deceased company member that left a lasting impact on Dallas’ theater scene. Kinman’s last performance with the company was in their production of “The Last Session”, a role for which he garnered much

critical acclaim. Lee’s rendition of “Going It Alone” from “The Last Session” is a somber, perfectly sung, send-off to a performer whose career won’t be forgotten anytime soon. “Broadway Our Way” rides its emotional wave to an uplifting finale featuring the song “Louder Than Words” from the show “Tick, Tick…Boom.” Ultimately, at its heart, “Broadway Our Way” is an jam-packed three hours that not only features stand out direction and composition but also shows just how much depth the Dallas performance scene possesses. All right 2013, “Broadway Our Way” has set the bar for the year. Which Dallas company wants to pass it?
