Ole Miss Bookstore brand ambassador Ashley D. Ball was in the bookstore Monday offering students a chance to get a free cup of coffee, while voicing their opinions about the bookstore at the same time.

“We want to change the perception people have of the bookstore here,” she said.

As we close in on the midway point of another semester there a quite a few hot topics that students are talking about around the campus. Parking, our football team, free scantrons, Amendment 26 and when the exact date that it will become fashionable again to wear leggings, XXXXL sweatshirts and rain boots. I'm thinking mid-October.

That said, I am going to take a different route, and talk about an issue that has been untouched as of yet by the campus water-cooler. Intramurals. I'm sticking to the important issues see?

I look at the girls on “Teen Mom” and wonder how MTV thinks these girls are positive role models and show that teen parenthood isn’t a life you want a part of. If MTV wants to send out that message, don’t put girls on the show who are more concerned with raising their child than their dating life or publicity.
