By Josh Wickerham
Daily Arts Writer
The Michigan Daily: Hi, is this Ryan Neil
Haag?
Random: Yes it is.
TMD: This is Josh Wickerham from The
Michigan Daily. Out of 40,000 students on this
campus, you have been randomly selected to
have your opinion printed for the masses. What
do you think of that?
R: That's pretty damn cool.
TMD: Have you ever read my feature - the
Random Student Interview?
R: No, actually I haven't.
TMD: Have you ever read Weekend, etc.
Magazine?
R: No, I have never actually heard of it before.
I skim thru The Daily. I don't read read it, as in
I don't read it very seriously. I don't see it as a
very serious paper. I do extract information
from it on occasion.
TMD: Well, let's launch right into this. Have
you ever heard of MSA?
R: Yes, I have.
TMD: How do you feel about the resolution

L 4

passed on Tuesday night?
R: The one saying MSA is in favor of the
strikes in Afghanistan?
TMD: Yes.
R: Their concern for the support of the troops
is good, but kind of silly because I didn't
think that the U.S. cared whether MSA cared
whether they should be at war. It's kinda ridicu-
lous. I do see the reason ... actually, I just view
it as a nonchalant. They passed it while no one
cared. I don't care. If something comes. I don't
see any good or bad that came out of it.
TMD: What do you think the impact of the
resolution passed Tuesday will be on U.S.
foreign policy?
R: Absolutely nothing.
TMD: Are you pro- or anti-war?
R: I am pro-war as long as we concentrate on
eliminating the problem. Number one, we kill
the people who caused the horror of the W.T.C.
and the Pentagon. And we give humanitarian
aid because I feel that the people there are not
their government. Their government is a tyran-
ny. If they had a normal government, they
would have normal relations with us. I think
right now we're going in the right way towards
solving the problem.
TMD: Who did you vote for for MSA
president?
R: Let's see. I voted for the Michigan
Party
TMD: Who do you like better? Doug
Tietz or Chip Englander?
R: Ehh. I'm kinda equal on both of
them. I'm evenly split.
TMD: Have you ever had a Rax
Burger at the Rax fast food chain?
R: No, I have not.
TMD: Good. Neither have I. What do
you think about scientologists?
R: Interesting people. Don't they
derive their beliefs from Christianity'?
TMD: No, you're thinking of
Christian scientists. Have you ever
read the book "Dianetics" by L. Ron
Hubbard or seen the John Travolta
movie "Battlefield Earth"?
R: No, I have not.
TMD: OK, on a more serious note,
how do you feel about the prospect of
peace in the world? Do you think G.W
Bush is handling things adequately in
the aftermath of this terrible tragedy?
R: Number one, peace will never
exist. We live in a short-sighted soci
ety. People don't claim responsibility
and are more willing to screw over
their neighbors than ever.
The only way to change the govern
ment is if everybody dies and they go
to heaven or hell. We should still strive
for peace. A large population in the
world doesn't want peace. They want
to beat up their neighbor and create
violence. We either have to take
control of them or kill them.
Bush is responding to the problem
properly. He's getting at the people
who caused the problem and
humanitarian aid is smart because not
everyone was involved.
TMD: If you found a Kit Kat bar in
the middle of the road and the corner
was unwrapped just a bit, but uneaten,
and the rest of it was fine, would you
pick it up and eat it?
R: I am really not that desperate for
food.
