Ackbar

Students at the University of Mississippi voted yesterday to help select a new mascot. The previous mascot, Colonel Reb, a white-bearded old man with a cane and wide-brimmed hat, was removed from sporting events in 2003. There is now a student-led effort to select "Star Wars" character Admiral Ackbar (video of Ackbar saying "It's a trap!" here) as the new mascot. This effort includes a Facebook group and twitter account. The slogan is, "This time it's not a trap." Officials at the University say "No chance." Meanwhile, the "Save Colonel Reb Foundation" has sponsored a series of radio ads, including this one.

There's a "U" in Falkner

Faulkner Friday: William Faulkner's connection with the University of Mississippi was a varied one, including a stint as an abysmal postmaster. Regardless, Ole Miss has put together a vast website dedicated to the writer. Learn about his life, his family tree, his home at Rowan Oak, and even a FAQ for those common questions. Learn about his novels, his short stories, and his poems. And if that's all old hat, how about information on his work in Hollywood, a source of academic resources on the writer, a listing of other websites on Faulkner, and lastly, a page of trivia, quotes, and quizzes.
