By JESSE BROUHARD
Now that the holiday season is
upon us (the NBA opener is
included but is not actually a major
holiday) I have been pondering
whether to be, or not to be.
Chelsea Clinton that is.
I'm not sure why I have a
curious fascination with a thirteen-
year-old red-headed girl's life, but
on days like Halloween,
Thanksgiving and Christmas, I
always wonder if I would like to be
her (thankfully it's not a straight
swap, she can still be her too,
without becoming me).
Halloween seemed like a real
downer to me. Where does the
country's first daughter go trick-or-
treating?
Not leaving the White House is a
viable option considering the media
attention a first daughter can
receive regarding her Socks the cat
costume. Little orphan Annie is a
no-no too.
The White House itself isn't a
bad place toehunt for candy, unless
it's the Carter Presidency.
Think about it. Carter was one of
those evil folk who hands you
good-for-you food like, say,
"peanuts!" I still hate those people.
Ever since Carter got booted
though there has been a steady
stream of good candy though.
Reagan jellybeans, Barbara Bush
obviously had some cookies around
and by watching TV reports, Bill
has some serious Snickers bars
stashed away in the oval office.
Overall, Halloween is doable
since I'm the lazy type who doesn't
like having to leave the couch.
Thanksgiving, this guy would go
to all ends not to be Chelsea. The
people Bill would just feel
obligated to invite would make for a
real dull dinner.
A turkey surrounded by every
old, rich person who donated
enough money to be on
Pennsylvania Ave. on November 25
is not a real entertaining evening for
a thirteen-year-old.
I don't think they even get

To the Daily:
Recent letters to the Daily
("Students Comment on Mo's
Coaching," 11/10/93) accuse
Michigan football Coach Gary
Moeller of having a loser mentality,
say he is an ineffective replacement
for the immortal Bo Schembechler,
and propose we should fire him. If
we should fire a coach based on his
first three seasons, then Bo should
have left Michigan 17 years earlier.
In Bo's first season at Michigan,
he complied an 8-3 record, with
Michigan's first bowl loss in five
years, and ended up at ninth in the
AP Top 20. Moeller, in his first
season, went 9-3, pounded

turkey sandwiches at the White
House the next day.
Pardon me for criticizing our
nation's first chefs.
Christmas is where it's at for the
Chelster. How plush would the gifts
under that monster tree be?
Everyone knows that the number of
presents received is directly
proportional to the size of the tree.
All those rich weirdos that were
a bore at Thanksgiving might just
come through now with a present. A
nice one. Just sucks that Nintendo
and Sega aren't on Daddy's good
side lately.
Then again all the fires in Los
Angeles could make the homestead
rather crowded. All of Bill's
Hollywood buddies might just
figure that if they've been upstaged
at home by a fire, the least they can
do is get some exposure at the
White House. Wolf Blitzer's always
cruising the West Wing.

Worse yet, Barbara Streisand,
the coolest of all Bill's friends, wi
be celebrating Hanukkah and will
boycott the whole Christmas thing
anyway.
Being left alone in the old
mansion with Fleetwood Mac and
Linda Bloodworth-Thomason
would surely be a bore.
As long as the gifts are opened
early in the morning, the front door
is cleared with a Mack truck ready
for the plunder and a quick getawA
is assured, then Christmas is in.
Overall, being Chelsea would be
pretty cool. I mean anytime you
wanted to get away with something
you could just threaten to invite the
Doles to your school play.
And one more holiday.
Mom, Dad, the IRS just
exploded, all the tax returns have
been lost, and the deficit will be
astronomical.
Yeah Mom, April fools.

when they're down. That's the
difference between a spoiled
spectator and a loyal fan.

Enough about MSA;
LSA-SG is effective
To the Daly:
After reading editorial after
editorial denouncing MSA, I started
to wonder how much students were
really learning about the politics on
campus. MSA elections are
consistently a hot topic this time of
year, but the issues are always the
same. Petty nickname bickering and
calls for MSA's abolition are
consistent themes every term.
What ceme tn he a little rnnwn

this turnout will never change.
While students learn about every
single MSA event, most students
have 'never heard of LSA-SG. If the
Daily wants to help students by
informing them about campus
politics, they should try to raise 6
student awareness of other
worthwhile organizations like LSA-
SG.
