THE OFFICE OPENED IN 1882. ERIN JESTERAlligator WriterIf you drive 20 minutes south from Gainesville on U.S. 441 and hang a left just before the Welcome to Marion County sign, youll end up on a narrow, twolane road that seems to take you back in time. The road dead-ends in front of Evinston United Methodist Church. To the right are cow pastures. To the left, within spitting distance from the county line, is Wood and Swink Old Store and is one of 3,700 slated for closure by the United States Postal Ser vice. Without the business of the mail, former owner Freddie Wood Jr. said, the future of the historic shop is uncertain. The only Gainesville post ofat 401 SE First Ave. Its a meeting place, Wood said of the store. People get their mail there in the morning and get to see each other and get to talk. lose that. Woods family settled in mail came into the town via railroad. His grandfather owned Wood and Swink from 1910, then passed it to Woods uncle, then his par ents. Wood inherited the store after his mothers death in 1990, more put him to work there at the age of 12. Wood turned the store over to his son Fred two years ago but still works around the store in working on his farm. and Swink was a full-service grocery store, but business has now dwindled to sales of homemade pickled hot peppers, cold drinks and trinkets. A few dusty shelves in a corner of the shop contain old vinyl records, sold for a dollar apiece. Without the revenue from the mailbox rentals, Wood said, that money wouldnt be enough es in use at the store, give or take a few, postmaster Scarlett Kinder said. holders would have to arrange for rural delivery to their homes. A representative from USPS will come to talk to Evinston residents about the potential closure near future. Just about everyone in town is against it, Wood said. Since Wood and his wife, Wilma Sue Brown-Wood, still have their farm, the store closing wouldnt put them in too much But the social impact of closing, Wood said, would be huge for Evinston. It just takes something away from me, he said. It would sure affect me not being able to talk to everyone. Old, young, male, female, black, white doesnt matter. I like them all. Katie Deadenick used to have a mailbox at Wood and Swink but had to close it when she moved to McIntosh. Now she brings her children, Mark and Maggie, to the store as a treat. She waits with the car running while they rummage around in the drink cooler and pick out three-cent pieces of bubblegum. A lot of people count on this place, Deadenick said. Well be sad to see it go. The residents of Evinston heard about a month ago that then, Wood said theyve written to politicians, asking them to intervene. They just dont see how closing Evinstons humble post ofmoney. A better solution, Wood said, would be to charge a mailbox fee to urban residents, for whom mail delivery is free. He believes forcing people who live in rural settings to pay expensive fees for mail delivery or taking pick-up boxes in bigger towns that are farther away is unfair. for rural America, he said. 4, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 31, 2011 Brett Le Blanc / Alligator Staff Town mourns loss of MINA RADMANAlligator Writer Last-minute shoppers still have a few days left to pur chase their posters. Although the poster sale on the Reitz Union Colonnade was advertised to end last Friday, posters will be available to purchase until the end of this week. The College Poster Sale Company presents the poster sale for two weeks each fall but has a different sales representative each week, said Jill Keezer, the assistant director of programs, arts and leisure at the Reitz Union. Each sales representative markets his or her sale as a one-week sale. We have found that many students have not received said. So by popular request, we extend the sale the second week. Students can purchase posters from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. About 90 percent of the posters on sale, of which about 30 percent are changed to adapt to the market each year, are priced under $9. The poster sale will return in the beginning of the spring semester for one week.Reitz poster sale continues through end of this week We have found that many students have not assistant director at Reitz Union

U.S. misplays hand in war on drugsThe federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives did its best to wipe the blood off of its hands when its acting director, Kenneth Melson, resigned Tuesday. When you lose track of 2,000 guns resulting in the death of an American citizen, someone has to take the blame. In a recent operation called Fast and Furious, the Phoenix division of the ATF, with the help of the U.S. Attorney for of guns on the Southwest border by allowing weapons to be purchased at border gun shops. Soon, the ATF found they were missing about 2,000 guns, which ended up in the hands of Mexican drug cartels. The operation was brought to light when U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terrys body was found near Rio Rico, Ariz. Terry was murdered by members of a cartel who had stumbled Fast and Furious. This tragic scenario was just another horrible result of the U.S. position toward Mexican drug violence. Drug cartels operate exclusively underground with the propaid off with bribes. Did our government really think they Mexican government? The government spends billions of dollars on the war on have seen few positive results. According to the Cato Institute, 131 U.S. citizens were killed in border cities between 2005 and 2008 due to the violent drug trade. Around 6,290 people were killed in Mexico in 2008, according to USA Today. Yet we keep spending billions on the drug war. In a struggling country like Mexico, the extravagant life of a drug kingpin is very tempting to many, even some governbribery and increased crime. Instead of putting guns in the hands of violent international criminals, the government should be reevaluating its ineffective War on Drugs. Perhaps they could learn a lesson from the alcohol prohibition era instead of using scare tactics and increased invasions of the United States. drug cartels by removing the perverse incentives that prohibition creates. The implications of this prescription might be alarming to some, but surely there must be a better way to prevent this violence. Replacing the head of the ATF or the Drug Enforcement Agency or even the Department of Justice will not do any good until the government reevaluates its entire policy surrounding this issue.Guest columnI have often heard it said that communism sounds good in theory or principle but does not succeed in reality. Stalin and Cuba serve as examples. Hayek they are no doubt correct. However, Stalinism was not communism. Nor is oligarchy egalitarianism. Nonetheless, critics of the left conequality or dissolution. This is not a paean to communist thought. Rather, the question I am most interested in is why no one says the same of capitalism: theoretically good, bad in practice. The short answer is that the majority of students at UF were educated in our public school system, which is concerned more with socialization than education. Regardless, we saw banks collapse. We saw markets tumble. In other words, Wall Street got drunk. And capitalism, as a system and ideology, must be viewed as guilty and broken. Deregulation was the chant of the free-marketeers; deregulation is, in large part, the cause of our current woes. The Bush tax cuts were a failed experiment in trickle down economics. The nonpartisan think tank, Tax Policy Center, reported that between 2001 and 2008, the botthe cuts. Meanwhile, the top 20 percent received about 65 percent; the top 1 percent alone claimed 38 percent. But the wealth did not reiterate in the form of job creation. Between March 2001 and December 2007, job and income growth was at its slowest rate since the end of World War II. A tax policy designed to spur growth instead curbs it. Laws that favor the wealthy at the expense of the nation (the cuts cost $2.6 trillion) should be repealed, especially when ineffective. In 2009, the poverty rate was around 14 percent. Children in poverty, a historically higher indicator, topped 20 percent. The rate of non-insurance was roughly 16 percent. Insofar as capitalism provides goods and services to all people, it fails for a portion of our society. The 2007 poverty rate for Alachua County was 16.2 percent. Furthermore, roughly 1,000 homeless people live in Alachua County, while there are only 350 beds between various shelters and transitional programs. The free market belief that charity alone can satisfy welfare needs is simply untrue. It seems to me that capitalism is broken because it produces a system that privileges It occurs to me, also, that capitalism is not broken. In fact, it is alive and well. For capitalism is working when the compensation of S&P 500 executives rises at a rate of 28 percent compared to the average workers increase of 1 percent over the same year. Unemployment remains stagnant. Capitalism is alive and well when Verizon workers ism is alive and well when Verizon pays nothing in federal income tax while enjoying a $10.3 billion dollar tax rebate for 2010. And capitalism is alive and well when democracy and representation too become commodities. All things have a price. The Citizens United decision by the Supreme Court has only evinced this problem. Furthermore, democracy itself is under attack when interests, corporate or otherwise, disguise their agenda as independent and grassroots (see the Koch brothers, Americans for Prosperity, FreedomWorks and the tea party) while dealing strictly in ideology in a PR techThis is, indeed, capitalism.

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 31, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 7 Humane Society supports UFs Meatless MondaysCongratulations to UF for participating in Meatless Monday (Meatless Mondays are vital for creating a healthier campus, Aug. 23). There are many compelling reasons to go meatfree once a week. Some people support Meatless Monday because of the positive consequences for billions of animals raised for the dinner table. On modern factory farms, animals are packed into warehouses, often with so little space they cant even turn around. Most people would naturally choose more meat-free meals if they saw the fear and pain animals suffer in factory farms every day of their short lives. Reducing our meat consumption has environindustry, along with the dairy and egg industries, generates a huge portion of man-made greenhouse gas emissions. Whether its to reduce your carbon footprint, improve your health, or to help prevent animal suffering, choosing meat-free meals one day a week is a win-win. Visit humanesociety.org/ meatfree for easy vegetarian recipes and meal tips. Paul Shapiro Senior Director, Farm Animal Protection The Humane Society of the United StatesLetter to the Editor In ancient Greece, an oracle was a person who could make predictions about the future. Nowadays, we have what you could call an oracle of investing just up the road from Lincoln. Warren Buffett, the Oracle of Omaha, is one of the most respected investors worldwide. Its no surprise since hes currently the third wealthiest person in the world. So when Buffett wrote an op-ed column for The New York Times giving the government advice on reducing the debt at the very least be taken seriously. That wasnt the case last week, though. In his column, Buffett appeals to the government to raise taxes on him and other millionaires and billionaires, saying that, While most Americans struggle to make ends meet, we mega-rich continue to get our extraordinary tax breaks. Buffett gives the exact number that he paid in income and payroll taxes last year: $6,938,744, or .4 percent of my taxable income. That, he says, is the lowest whose taxes ranged from 33 percent to 41 percent and averaged 36 percent. Fox News picked up this story and for it. They immediately called Buffett out for class warfare, which is interesting because hes asking for higher taxes on his own class maybe civil class warfare? He has even been called a socialist for his opinions. Because, of course, asking the mega-rich to pay a little extra is basically the same as having a complete lack of private property and total government control of the economy. Last December, when Bushs tax cuts were about to expire, Democrats in Congress tried to extend only the cuts for the middle and lower class and allow tax rates on the wealthiest Americans to return to their previous levels. Republicans thwarted this plan by threatening to let all of the tax cuts expire. Raising taxes on Americans in the top two income brackets would raise $700 billion over ten years. According to Fox, thats such a small number its not even worth it. Foxs alternative? Raise taxes on the middle and lower classes and cut spending. They want the 51 percent of Americans who dont pay any income tax to pitch in. As Jon Stewart pointed out last week, if you took half of the wealth of the bottom 51 percent of Americans, youd come out with a little more than $700 billion. Apparently the folks at Fox News still think that millionaires are going to pass their wealth on to the rest of Americans. frugal upper class people who wont buy a new car every month or hire someone to change the TV channel for them. Just look at Warren Buffett. He still lives in the same modest house he bought 50 years ago. How unpatriotic. Now, I dont have a problem with people who earn a lot of money by working hard. In fact, I dont have anything against people like Kim Kardashian, who get rich without doing anything. Thats just the way our society is. What I have a problem with is people claiming that we cant tax the rich for whatever reason while at the same time claiming that the lower class can afford to pay more in taxes. Evan Marolf writes for the Daily Nebraskan at the University of Nebraska.Taxing wealthy is fair during tough timesUWireEvan MarolfUWire

Brett Le Blanc / Alligator StaffFlorida senior Kelly Murphy led the Gators with a triple-double (12 kills, 17 assists and 10 digs) in the teams win against Florida State on Tuesday in the OConnell Center. The Gators have not dropped a set this season. UF VOLLEYBALL TWO FRESHMEN MAY START AT CB. MATT WATTSSophomore Cody Riggs appeared in front of reporters Tuesday with a cast on his right hand, further jumbling an already unsettled situation in Floridas secondary. Riggs said the cast was merely for protection after he sprained his thumb during a blocking drill in practice. He added the cast would be off by Saturdays game and he does not expect to be limited. Riggs was listed as a potential starter at cornerback according to coach Will Muschamps depth chart that was released Monday. Junior Jeremy Brown is questionable for Saturdays game against FAU after missing more than two weeks of practice with a sprained knee. Senior Moses Jenkins is also in the mix, but Riggs said Tuesday that no one has claimed a starting position. Muschamp said all of the cornerbacks are interchangeable, meaning a starting combination of Marcus Roberson and Jaylen Watkins is possible. Its still up for grabs, Riggs said. Were The back end appears set with freshman DeAnte Saunders as the favorite at safety alongside sophomore Matt Elam, who has Notebook: Corner situation muddled with Riggs in castReliving last season the only remaining optionWhat year is it? No, no, no. Seriously. What year is it? If you have followed Florida football for the past month or so, be it through television or radio or this publication, you have heard plenty about 2010. While they havent lashed out dur ing interviews, players are clearly getting annoyed with the same old storyline, and you cant blame them. The questions grew stale two weeks ago, and they are still being trotted out each day by reporters, including myself. Sor ry guys. But there are a couple reasons you keep hearing those questions about last season. 1) Last season was shockingly bad, and 2) You guys arent giving us much to work with. Some people say an 8-5 year isnt that bad. Those people are wrong. Take away wins against Miami (Ohio), South Florida and Appalachian State because sixth-graders dont deserve credit for beating up second-graders. Linebacker Jelani Jenkins and corner back Cody Riggs see things differently. They said Tuesday that their record was deceiving because they lost so many tight games. Theyre wrong. close: a shocker in which punter Chas with seconds left and a heartbreaker in which Les Miles went all Les Miles on Tyler Jetttwitter: @tyler_jett seeSEE VOLLEYBALL, Pa A GeE 15see SEE NOTEbooBOOK, Pa A GeE 15see SEE TYLER, Pa A GeE 16 BRYAN HOLTFor 10 points in the second set, the Gators volleyball team was on the ropes as much as it has been since last Decembers season-ending loss to Purdue. No. 9 UF (3-0, 0-0 Southeastern Conference) defeated No. 25 Florida State (3-1, 0-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) on Tuesday night at the OConnell Center, but it wasnt as easy as the score might imply. In a rematch from the second-round of last years NCAA Tournament, UF was down 9-1 in the second set of a match could easily be overlooked, but Gators coach Mary Wise said that should not be the case. We got some breaks that went our way, but it was pretty high-level volleyball, she said. No doubt well have to see Florida State again. Senior Kelly Murphy led the way with a triple-double (12 kills, 17 assists and 10 digs) while the Gators hit .238 as a team. The main thing was just staying really focused and trying not to get lost in all of the chaos that was happening out there, Murphy said. Murphy trailed only libero Taylor Unroe (15) in digs for the Gators, as the redshirt freshman continued to impress teammates and Wise in the backcourt.Gators sweep Seminoles thanks to Murphy, Unroe UF Fo otball THE JETT STREAM

PAGE 15

Good things happen when Taylors touching the ball, Wise said. She has that ability to, in any rally, just get us back in system. She has an elite touch on the ball, both defensively and on passing. What was unusual about the in-state rivalry game was Floridas slow starts in all three sets. The Gators trailed early in every frame largely due to some gutsy play by Seminoles redshirt freshman defensive specialist Katie Mosher, who recorded a game-high 17 digs. The piece that was really impressive was how good their freshman libero was, Wise said. I think that an UnroeMosher battle would be pretty fun to watch for the next four years. of the young season in the second set and third set, respectively. The Gators have yet to lose a set in 2011 after opening the season with three victories against ACC competition. Etc: Tuesday nights attendance was 4,631, including 1,901 students the highest count in UF volleyball history. Our students have been doing a really good job of showing up, Murphy said. Weve never had fans like this, especially in the beginning of the season. The Gators will host Jacksonville and Florida Atlantic on Friday in the Campus USA Credit Union Invitational. been the most consistent throughout fall camp. Despite the uncertainty over the starters at corner, Floridas secondary should be littered with underclassmen Saturday. Increased role for linebackers: After rarely rushing the passer last season, linebackers Jon Bostic and Jelani Jenkins said they have been preparing to blitz more under new defensive coor dinator Dan Quinn. Bostic said Quinn has both of them working on their pad level when rushing. Jelani and I both, we kind of laugh because [blitzing] wasnt really what we did a lot of [last year], Bostic said. Under defensive coordinator Teryl Austin in 2010, the Gators ran more of a base 4-3 front with little other looks. But Quinn has brought variety to the defense, meaning Bostic and Jenkins must be able to drop into coverage as well as know which gap to hit in complex zone blitzes. We have really the ability to do everything, Bostic said. We have the ability to rush the passer all day and bring the house. We have DBs that can sit back there and hold up. We really can do it all. Reed adjusting to tight end: Jordan Reed never played a position other than quarterback until coming to Florida, and he said the toughest part of the shift is learning to be physical while blocking. I dont think anyone likes blocking, he said. Youve got to learn to love it, but Im never going to like it. Reed said he envisions himself more in the mold of a passcatching tight end, and offensive coordinator Charlie Weis said Reed has transitioned nicely into his new role. When I came here and sat down with these guys to see where they saw themselves, I was waiting for him to say I see myself as the starting quarterback, Weis said. He says, I see myself as the starting tight end. Hes really done a nice job. Contact Matt Watts at mwatts@ alligator.org.

the Gators. The other three? Blowouts. Counting only fair competition (including Vanderbilt, if only because its in the confer ence), the Gators would have gone 5-5. But there I go talking about last season again. My bad. Really. Its not fair. Here we are, just talk about is last season. Last season isnt this season. This season is this season. And there are so many new things to talk about. Eight new coaches. New offense. New defense. But heres the thing: Its tough to talk about all this new stuff when you dont actually see it. Since Muschamp and Co. took the reins in January, only once has the team opened up its operations to the public: the spring game. And even then Muschamp said fans were getting a stripped-down version of what is to come, on both sides of the ball. Translation: Trust me, dude, its going to be TOTALLY way more awesome next time. Muschamps statement actually made sense. The team suffered a lot of injuries before the scrimmage and didnt have the personnel to coupled with the all-too-familiar team policy of closing every practice ever, gives media members less incentive to talk about all the change you know, the things that are universally seen in a positive light. Floridas strict policy has actually hurt itself this month, because this preseason, unlike any other preseason in recent memory, is about atonement. There are reasons to believe Florida can redeem itself. But if you value truth, you have to lean on what you have seen, not what people tell you. What is the last thing you have seen? A really disappointing 2010. Im excited for Saturday. Im excited for footdifferent. But, until then, lets get back to last season: What was up with that, guys? Contact Tyler Jett at tjett@alligator.org. TOM GREENAlligator Staff WriterCharlie Weis came in with a plan when he became offensive coordinator on coach Will Muschamps staff. Although many of Floridas players have said throughout the duration of fall practice that Weis is a very detail-oriented coach, the intricacies of the offense werent his biggest issue with his new team. the offense, I was more concerned with the foundation of the offense, Weis said. Once you establish the foundation that now allows you to have a whole arsenal of things that you can do on game day. When Weis was being recruited by Muschamp and his staff, he didnt know much about the Gators or their personnel from last season. After looking into the offensive players on Floridas roster from quarterback John Brantley, to the running back duo of Jeff Demps and Chris Rainey, to the cast of offensive linemen at his disposal Weis ultimately accepted the challenge. Upon arriving in Gainesville in early January, the former NFL offensive coordinator with four Super Bowl rings began available to him. That began with Brantley, who Weis said is suited to run a dropback-style passing attack. That passing offense is based on runs and play-action calls, so the foundation also stretched to the offensive linemen, many of whom were injured during the spring when Weis had to assess the candidates. He also went through, player by player, and asked each how he saw himself in the new system. When fans got an early look at Weis offense in the spring ily thrown together. But in the months since, he has been impressed with the progress and work ethic the offensive players have shown. Still, concerns remain for Weis heading into Saturdays opener against FAU. You havent played yet and I think that anytime youre putting in a new system you really want to go and try to play as Theres no preseason games here in college. This is kick it off and lets go and it counts. You want to minimize your mental mistakes, you want to minimize your line of scrimmage penalties and you want to take care of the football. But with practices closed to the public, Weis offense in his mystery to those outside of the program. And until the season opens, how well the offense comes together remains unknown to Weis. Well have a better answer for that about 10:30 Saturday (night), Weis said. I think practice is practice and games are games. Theres been plenty of progress, but youre judged by what happens on Saturday night. Youre not judged by what happens in practice.

THE OFFICE OPENED IN 1882. ERIN JESTERAlligator WriterIf you drive 20 minutes south from Gainesville on U.S. 441 and hang a left just before the Welcome to Marion County sign, youll end up on a narrow, twolane road that seems to take you back in time. The road dead-ends in front of Evinston United Methodist Church. To the right are cow pastures. To the left, within spitting distance from the county line, is Wood and Swink Old Store and is one of 3,700 slated for closure by the United States Postal Ser vice. Without the business of the mail, former owner Freddie Wood Jr. said, the future of the historic shop is uncertain. The only Gainesville post ofat 401 SE First Ave. Its a meeting place, Wood said of the store. People get their mail there in the morning and get to see each other and get to talk. lose that. Woods family settled in mail came into the town via railroad. His grandfather owned Wood and Swink from 1910, then passed it to Woods uncle, then his par ents. Wood inherited the store after his mothers death in 1990, more put him to work there at the age of 12. Wood turned the store over to his son Fred two years ago but still works around the store in working on his farm. and Swink was a full-service grocery store, but business has now dwindled to sales of homemade pickled hot peppers, cold drinks and trinkets. A few dusty shelves in a corner of the shop contain old vinyl records, sold for a dollar apiece. Without the revenue from the mailbox rentals, Wood said, that money wouldnt be enough es in use at the store, give or take a few, postmaster Scarlett Kinder said. holders would have to arrange for rural delivery to their homes. A representative from USPS will come to talk to Evinston residents about the potential closure near future. Just about everyone in town is against it, Wood said. Since Wood and his wife, Wilma Sue Brown-Wood, still have their farm, the store closing wouldnt put them in too much But the social impact of closing, Wood said, would be huge for Evinston. It just takes something away from me, he said. It would sure affect me not being able to talk to everyone. Old, young, male, female, black, white doesnt matter. I like them all. Katie Deadenick used to have a mailbox at Wood and Swink but had to close it when she moved to McIntosh. Now she brings her children, Mark and Maggie, to the store as a treat. She waits with the car running while they rummage around in the drink cooler and pick out three-cent pieces of bubblegum. A lot of people count on this place, Deadenick said. Well be sad to see it go. The residents of Evinston heard about a month ago that then, Wood said theyve written to politicians, asking them to intervene. They just dont see how closing Evinstons humble post ofmoney. A better solution, Wood said, would be to charge a mailbox fee to urban residents, for whom mail delivery is free. He believes forcing people who live in rural settings to pay expensive fees for mail delivery or taking pick-up boxes in bigger towns that are farther away is unfair. for rural America, he said. 4, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 31, 2011 Brett Le Blanc / Alligator Staff Town mourns loss of MINA RADMANAlligator Writer Last-minute shoppers still have a few days left to pur chase their posters. Although the poster sale on the Reitz Union Colonnade was advertised to end last Friday, posters will be available to purchase until the end of this week. The College Poster Sale Company presents the poster sale for two weeks each fall but has a different sales representative each week, said Jill Keezer, the assistant director of programs, arts and leisure at the Reitz Union. Each sales representative markets his or her sale as a one-week sale. We have found that many students have not received said. So by popular request, we extend the sale the second week. Students can purchase posters from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. About 90 percent of the posters on sale, of which about 30 percent are changed to adapt to the market each year, are priced under $9. The poster sale will return in the beginning of the spring semester for one week.Reitz poster sale continues through end of this week We have found that many students have not assistant director at Reitz Union

U.S. misplays hand in war on drugsThe federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives did its best to wipe the blood off of its hands when its acting director, Kenneth Melson, resigned Tuesday. When you lose track of 2,000 guns resulting in the death of an American citizen, someone has to take the blame. In a recent operation called Fast and Furious, the Phoenix division of the ATF, with the help of the U.S. Attorney for of guns on the Southwest border by allowing weapons to be purchased at border gun shops. Soon, the ATF found they were missing about 2,000 guns, which ended up in the hands of Mexican drug cartels. The operation was brought to light when U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terrys body was found near Rio Rico, Ariz. Terry was murdered by members of a cartel who had stumbled Fast and Furious. This tragic scenario was just another horrible result of the U.S. position toward Mexican drug violence. Drug cartels operate exclusively underground with the propaid off with bribes. Did our government really think they Mexican government? The government spends billions of dollars on the war on have seen few positive results. According to the Cato Institute, 131 U.S. citizens were killed in border cities between 2005 and 2008 due to the violent drug trade. Around 6,290 people were killed in Mexico in 2008, according to USA Today. Yet we keep spending billions on the drug war. In a struggling country like Mexico, the extravagant life of a drug kingpin is very tempting to many, even some governbribery and increased crime. Instead of putting guns in the hands of violent international criminals, the government should be reevaluating its ineffective War on Drugs. Perhaps they could learn a lesson from the alcohol prohibition era instead of using scare tactics and increased invasions of the United States. drug cartels by removing the perverse incentives that prohibition creates. The implications of this prescription might be alarming to some, but surely there must be a better way to prevent this violence. Replacing the head of the ATF or the Drug Enforcement Agency or even the Department of Justice will not do any good until the government reevaluates its entire policy surrounding this issue.Guest columnI have often heard it said that communism sounds good in theory or principle but does not succeed in reality. Stalin and Cuba serve as examples. Hayek they are no doubt correct. However, Stalinism was not communism. Nor is oligarchy egalitarianism. Nonetheless, critics of the left conequality or dissolution. This is not a paean to communist thought. Rather, the question I am most interested in is why no one says the same of capitalism: theoretically good, bad in practice. The short answer is that the majority of students at UF were educated in our public school system, which is concerned more with socialization than education. Regardless, we saw banks collapse. We saw markets tumble. In other words, Wall Street got drunk. And capitalism, as a system and ideology, must be viewed as guilty and broken. Deregulation was the chant of the free-marketeers; deregulation is, in large part, the cause of our current woes. The Bush tax cuts were a failed experiment in trickle down economics. The nonpartisan think tank, Tax Policy Center, reported that between 2001 and 2008, the botthe cuts. Meanwhile, the top 20 percent received about 65 percent; the top 1 percent alone claimed 38 percent. But the wealth did not reiterate in the form of job creation. Between March 2001 and December 2007, job and income growth was at its slowest rate since the end of World War II. A tax policy designed to spur growth instead curbs it. Laws that favor the wealthy at the expense of the nation (the cuts cost $2.6 trillion) should be repealed, especially when ineffective. In 2009, the poverty rate was around 14 percent. Children in poverty, a historically higher indicator, topped 20 percent. The rate of non-insurance was roughly 16 percent. Insofar as capitalism provides goods and services to all people, it fails for a portion of our society. The 2007 poverty rate for Alachua County was 16.2 percent. Furthermore, roughly 1,000 homeless people live in Alachua County, while there are only 350 beds between various shelters and transitional programs. The free market belief that charity alone can satisfy welfare needs is simply untrue. It seems to me that capitalism is broken because it produces a system that privileges It occurs to me, also, that capitalism is not broken. In fact, it is alive and well. For capitalism is working when the compensation of S&P 500 executives rises at a rate of 28 percent compared to the average workers increase of 1 percent over the same year. Unemployment remains stagnant. Capitalism is alive and well when Verizon workers ism is alive and well when Verizon pays nothing in federal income tax while enjoying a $10.3 billion dollar tax rebate for 2010. And capitalism is alive and well when democracy and representation too become commodities. All things have a price. The Citizens United decision by the Supreme Court has only evinced this problem. Furthermore, democracy itself is under attack when interests, corporate or otherwise, disguise their agenda as independent and grassroots (see the Koch brothers, Americans for Prosperity, FreedomWorks and the tea party) while dealing strictly in ideology in a PR techThis is, indeed, capitalism.

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 31, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 7 Humane Society supports UFs Meatless MondaysCongratulations to UF for participating in Meatless Monday (Meatless Mondays are vital for creating a healthier campus, Aug. 23). There are many compelling reasons to go meatfree once a week. Some people support Meatless Monday because of the positive consequences for billions of animals raised for the dinner table. On modern factory farms, animals are packed into warehouses, often with so little space they cant even turn around. Most people would naturally choose more meat-free meals if they saw the fear and pain animals suffer in factory farms every day of their short lives. Reducing our meat consumption has environindustry, along with the dairy and egg industries, generates a huge portion of man-made greenhouse gas emissions. Whether its to reduce your carbon footprint, improve your health, or to help prevent animal suffering, choosing meat-free meals one day a week is a win-win. Visit humanesociety.org/ meatfree for easy vegetarian recipes and meal tips. Paul Shapiro Senior Director, Farm Animal Protection The Humane Society of the United StatesLetter to the Editor In ancient Greece, an oracle was a person who could make predictions about the future. Nowadays, we have what you could call an oracle of investing just up the road from Lincoln. Warren Buffett, the Oracle of Omaha, is one of the most respected investors worldwide. Its no surprise since hes currently the third wealthiest person in the world. So when Buffett wrote an op-ed column for The New York Times giving the government advice on reducing the debt at the very least be taken seriously. That wasnt the case last week, though. In his column, Buffett appeals to the government to raise taxes on him and other millionaires and billionaires, saying that, While most Americans struggle to make ends meet, we mega-rich continue to get our extraordinary tax breaks. Buffett gives the exact number that he paid in income and payroll taxes last year: $6,938,744, or .4 percent of my taxable income. That, he says, is the lowest whose taxes ranged from 33 percent to 41 percent and averaged 36 percent. Fox News picked up this story and for it. They immediately called Buffett out for class warfare, which is interesting because hes asking for higher taxes on his own class maybe civil class warfare? He has even been called a socialist for his opinions. Because, of course, asking the mega-rich to pay a little extra is basically the same as having a complete lack of private property and total government control of the economy. Last December, when Bushs tax cuts were about to expire, Democrats in Congress tried to extend only the cuts for the middle and lower class and allow tax rates on the wealthiest Americans to return to their previous levels. Republicans thwarted this plan by threatening to let all of the tax cuts expire. Raising taxes on Americans in the top two income brackets would raise $700 billion over ten years. According to Fox, thats such a small number its not even worth it. Foxs alternative? Raise taxes on the middle and lower classes and cut spending. They want the 51 percent of Americans who dont pay any income tax to pitch in. As Jon Stewart pointed out last week, if you took half of the wealth of the bottom 51 percent of Americans, youd come out with a little more than $700 billion. Apparently the folks at Fox News still think that millionaires are going to pass their wealth on to the rest of Americans. frugal upper class people who wont buy a new car every month or hire someone to change the TV channel for them. Just look at Warren Buffett. He still lives in the same modest house he bought 50 years ago. How unpatriotic. Now, I dont have a problem with people who earn a lot of money by working hard. In fact, I dont have anything against people like Kim Kardashian, who get rich without doing anything. Thats just the way our society is. What I have a problem with is people claiming that we cant tax the rich for whatever reason while at the same time claiming that the lower class can afford to pay more in taxes.

The Gators have not dropped a set this season. UF VOLLEYBALL TWO FRESHMEN MAY START AT CB. MATT WATTSSophomore Cody Riggs appeared in front of reporters Tuesday with a cast on his right hand, further jumbling an already unsettled situation in Floridas secondary. Riggs said the cast was merely for protection after he sprained his thumb during a blocking drill in practice. He added the cast would be off by Saturdays game and he does not expect to be limited. Riggs was listed as a potential starter at cornerback according to coach Will Muschamps depth chart that was released Monday. Junior Jeremy Brown is questionable for Saturdays game against FAU after missing more than two weeks of practice with a sprained knee. Senior Moses Jenkins is also in the mix, but Riggs said Tuesday that no one has claimed a starting position. Muschamp said all of the cornerbacks are interchangeable, meaning a starting combination of Marcus Roberson and Jaylen Watkins is possible. Its still up for grabs, Riggs said. Were The back end appears set with freshman DeAnte Saunders as the favorite at safety alongside sophomore Matt Elam, who has Notebook: Corner situation muddled with Riggs in castReliving last season the only remaining optionWhat year is it? No, no, no. Seriously. What year is it? If you have followed Florida football for the past month or so, be it through television or radio or this publication, you have heard plenty about 2010. While they havent lashed out dur ing interviews, players are clearly getting annoyed with the same old storyline, and you cant blame them. The questions grew stale two weeks ago, and they are still being trotted out each day by reporters, including myself. Sor ry guys. But there are a couple reasons you keep hearing those questions about last season. 1) Last season was shockingly bad, and 2) You guys arent giving us much to work with. Some people say an 8-5 year isnt that bad. Those people are wrong. Take away wins against Miami (Ohio), South Florida and Appalachian State because sixth-graders dont deserve credit for beating up second-graders. Linebacker Jelani Jenkins and corner back Cody Riggs see things differently. They said Tuesday that their record was deceiving because they lost so many tight games. Theyre wrong. close: a shocker in which punter Chas with seconds left and a heartbreaker in which Les Miles went all Les Miles on Tyler Jetttwitter: @tyler_jett SEE VOLLEYBALL, P A GE 15 SEE NOTEBOOK, P A GE 15 SEE TYLER, P A GE 16 BRYAN HOLTFor 10 points in the second set, the Gators volleyball team was on the ropes as much as it has been since last Decembers season-ending loss to Purdue. No. 9 UF (3-0, 0-0 Southeastern Conference) defeated No. 25 Florida State (3-1, 0-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) on Tuesday night at the OConnell Center, but it wasnt as easy as the score might imply. In a rematch from the second-round of last years NCAA Tournament, UF was down 9-1 in the second set of a match could easily be overlooked, but Gators coach Mary Wise said that should not be the case. We got some breaks that went our way, but it was pretty high-level volleyball, she said. No doubt well have to see Florida State again. Senior Kelly Murphy led the way with a triple-double (12 kills, 17 assists and 10 digs) while the Gators hit .238 as a team. The main thing was just staying really focused and trying not to get lost in all of the chaos that was happening out there, Murphy said. Murphy trailed only libero Taylor Unroe (15) in digs for the Gators, as the redshirt freshman continued to impress teammates and Wise in the backcourt.Gators sweep Seminoles thanks to Murphy, Unroe UF Fo otball THE JETT STREAM

Good things happen when Taylors touching the ball, Wise said. She has that ability to, in any rally, just get us back in system. She has an elite touch on the ball, both defensively and on passing. What was unusual about the in-state rivalry game was Floridas slow starts in all three sets. The Gators trailed early in every frame largely due to some gutsy play by Seminoles redshirt freshman defensive specialist Katie Mosher, who recorded a game-high 17 digs. The piece that was really impressive was how good their freshman libero was, Wise said. I think that an UnroeMosher battle would be pretty fun to watch for the next four years. of the young season in the second set and third set, respectively. The Gators have yet to lose a set in 2011 after opening the season with three victories against ACC competition. Etc: Tuesday nights attendance was 4,631, including 1,901 students the highest count in UF volleyball history. Our students have been doing a really good job of showing up, Murphy said. Weve never had fans like this, especially in the beginning of the season. The Gators will host Jacksonville and Florida Atlantic on Friday in the Campus USA Credit Union Invitational. been the most consistent throughout fall camp. Despite the uncertainty over the starters at corner, Floridas secondary should be littered with underclassmen Saturday. Increased role for linebackers: After rarely rushing the passer last season, linebackers Jon Bostic and Jelani Jenkins said they have been preparing to blitz more under new defensive coor dinator Dan Quinn. Bostic said Quinn has both of them working on their pad level when rushing. Jelani and I both, we kind of laugh because [blitzing] wasnt really what we did a lot of [last year], Bostic said. Under defensive coordinator Teryl Austin in 2010, the Gators ran more of a base 4-3 front with little other looks. But Quinn has brought variety to the defense, meaning Bostic and Jenkins must be able to drop into coverage as well as know which gap to hit in complex zone blitzes. We have really the ability to do everything, Bostic said. We have the ability to rush the passer all day and bring the house. We have DBs that can sit back there and hold up. We really can do it all. Reed adjusting to tight end: Jordan Reed never played a position other than quarterback until coming to Florida, and he said the toughest part of the shift is learning to be physical while blocking. I dont think anyone likes blocking, he said. Youve got to learn to love it, but Im never going to like it. Reed said he envisions himself more in the mold of a passcatching tight end, and offensive coordinator Charlie Weis said Reed has transitioned nicely into his new role. When I came here and sat down with these guys to see where they saw themselves, I was waiting for him to say I see myself as the starting quarterback, Weis said. He says, I see myself as the starting tight end. Hes really done a nice job. Contact Matt Watts at mwatts@ alligator.org.

the Gators. The other three? Blowouts. Counting only fair competition (including Vanderbilt, if only because its in the confer ence), the Gators would have gone 5-5. But there I go talking about last season again. My bad. Really. Its not fair. Here we are, just talk about is last season. Last season isnt this season. This season is this season. And there are so many new things to talk about. Eight new coaches. New offense. New defense. But heres the thing: Its tough to talk about all this new stuff when you dont actually see it. Since Muschamp and Co. took the reins in January, only once has the team opened up its operations to the public: the spring game. And even then Muschamp said fans were getting a stripped-down version of what is to come, on both sides of the ball. Translation: Trust me, dude, its going to be TOTALLY way more awesome next time. Muschamps statement actually made sense. The team suffered a lot of injuries before the scrimmage and didnt have the personnel to coupled with the all-too-familiar team policy of closing every practice ever, gives media members less incentive to talk about all the change you know, the things that are universally seen in a positive light. Floridas strict policy has actually hurt itself this month, because this preseason, unlike any other preseason in recent memory, is about atonement. There are reasons to believe Florida can redeem itself. But if you value truth, you have to lean on what you have seen, not what people tell you. What is the last thing you have seen? A really disappointing 2010. Im excited for Saturday. Im excited for footdifferent. But, until then, lets get back to last season: What was up with that, guys? Contact Tyler Jett at tjett@alligator.org. TOM GREENAlligator Staff WriterCharlie Weis came in with a plan when he became offensive coordinator on coach Will Muschamps staff. Although many of Floridas players have said throughout the duration of fall practice that Weis is a very detail-oriented coach, the intricacies of the offense werent his biggest issue with his new team. the offense, I was more concerned with the foundation of the offense, Weis said. Once you establish the foundation that now allows you to have a whole arsenal of things that you can do on game day. When Weis was being recruited by Muschamp and his staff, he didnt know much about the Gators or their personnel from last season. After looking into the offensive players on Floridas roster from quarterback John Brantley, to the running back duo of Jeff Demps and Chris Rainey, to the cast of offensive linemen at his disposal Weis ultimately accepted the challenge. Upon arriving in Gainesville in early January, the former NFL offensive coordinator with four Super Bowl rings began available to him. That began with Brantley, who Weis said is suited to run a dropback-style passing attack. That passing offense is based on runs and play-action calls, so the foundation also stretched to the offensive linemen, many of whom were injured during the spring when Weis had to assess the candidates. He also went through, player by player, and asked each how he saw himself in the new system. When fans got an early look at Weis offense in the spring ily thrown together. But in the months since, he has been impressed with the progress and work ethic the offensive players have shown. Still, concerns remain for Weis heading into Saturdays opener against FAU. You havent played yet and I think that anytime youre putting in a new system you really want to go and try to play as Theres no preseason games here in college. This is kick it off and lets go and it counts. You want to minimize your mental mistakes, you want to minimize your line of scrimmage penalties and you want to take care of the football. But with practices closed to the public, Weis offense in his mystery to those outside of the program. And until the season opens, how well the offense comes together remains unknown to Weis. Well have a better answer for that about 10:30 Saturday (night), Weis said. I think practice is practice and games are games. Theres been plenty of progress, but youre judged by what happens on Saturday night. Youre not judged by what happens in practice.
