Opinion Editor: Michael Hardcastle

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.
