Bio: Michael Hardcastle joined the Oracle in spring 2009 as an opinion
columnist. He quickly rose to the position of Opinion Editor, where he
worked for a year writing insightful, sometimes controversial,
editorials covering topics ranging from USF to the U.S. as a
whole, and in subject matter from campus elections to a wild monkey
loose in Tampa Bay. In 2010, he moved into the copy section, writing
an occasional witty, often controversial, column. In fall 2011, he made
a triumphant return to the opinion section.
