Original Summary:
James Meredith is interviewed by a horde of newsmen as he walks between the dorm and a waiting car. He's asked if he feels "guilty" about the riots and the two persons who were killed. He says that it's an unfair question because he didn't have anything to do with it--he's sorry that anyone had to get hurt. School is "just fine." Students reaction? "Just like any students." Is he lonely? He's been "living a lonely life a long time."
