The winter is here in Chapel Hill, the first snow flakes fell and melted even before they touched the ground. But more tellingly, no coeds were wearing flipflops. The plastic shoes of summer have given way to Uggs. There has been an Ugg convergence on campus. More Uggs than Crocs. Crocs, the Uggs of summer!

Speaking of Uggs and other ugly mistakes, Mark Zuckerberg of FaceBook has had some ‘splainin’ to do. And though you might not like or agree with his explanation of Beacon and of FaceBook policy, he does step up and own up to the problem that Beacon has created with a blog post this morning Special upside of the post is that Mark has a link for opting OUT of Beacon!
