I hope you can handle
not having a Random
Student Interview next
week. There won't be a
this one can hold you
over until then.
Our cover story is on
a drug bust that hap-
pened last year involv-
ing University students.
Even now, there's still a
story to tell, and it's our
job to tell you about it.
Random rattles off coil(
By Jeremy Day
Austin Dingwall, our
architecture columnist, also appears in today's edi-
tion. When we were trying to figure out where the
his column fit in with the newspaper as a whole, one
of the editors mentioned that The Statement would
be an ideal spot, as it would mesh well with the new
look and feel we wanted to project. We gave it a try
and it has worked out well for the magazine, Austin
and the paper as a whole.
Finally, our resident superheroes Batman and
Superman weigh in on tonight's Ludacris concert.
Maybe someday we'll reveal their true identities,
but for now, enjoy their little ramblings. Some of you
might remember Alien and Predator last semester.
These two are just a crazier version of them.
Thanks for reading.

e Michigan Daily: Hi, is
andom: Um, hold on. She's
not here, can I ask who's calling?
TMD: My name is Jeremy David-
son, I'm calling to do the Random
Student Interview. Do you mind if I
ask you some random questions for
R: Sure, that's fine.
TMD: OK, what's your name?
TMD: Are you familiar with the
TMD: Well every week the Daily
puts out a magazine that comes out
called The Statement. It's almost basi-
cally exactly like the old magazine
Weekend, except it's a lot better right
now, and is totally different. We call
a random student from the directory,
and ask them all kinds of random
TMD: All right, so first question:
How was your Halloween?
R: It was good.
TMD: What did you dress up as?
R: Well, I'm in a sorority, but I
didn't really go out with them. But our
costumes were devils.
TMD: Oh, you guys were all dev-
R: Yeah, they were devils, but I
kind of did my own variation of that.
TMD: That's cool. Did you get
tired of seeing girls dressed up like
slutty pirates or slutty bees or slutty
soldiers or slutty animals?
R: I'd agree. Some of the costumes
were pretty extreme, in terms of the
TMD: Would you agree with the
"Mean Girls" philosophy that Hallow-
een is just an excuse for girls to wear
lingerie and animal ears?
TMD: Who was your favorite Teen-
age Mutant Ninja Turtle?
R: Ummm -
TMD: Do you remember their
R: Maybe if you say them I will
TMD: Well my favorite was Michel-
angelo. He was the orange one.
R: Yeah, I was thinking of that
TMD: Yeah he's definitely the best
one. Well, I'm from St. Louis. Do you
mind if I give you a little quiz about
R: That's fine.
TMD: Do you know what state St.
Louis is in?
R: Uh, Missouri?
TMD: Right on. Cool. What's the
first thing that comes to your mind
when I say St. Louis?
R: Umm, Cardinals?
TMD: Excellent, most people would
have said the Arch or Nelly. Can you
name any Cardinal's players?
R: Martis? No no no, Pujols.
TMD: What do you think about
R: I dunno. I just remember watch-
ing him against the Astros.
TMD: What did you think about
R: It was really good.
TMD: Does that name make you
giggle at all? Or is that just stupid?
R: No, not really.
TMD: OK, so are you a baseball
R: Yeah, I like the Angels. I'm from
TMD: So you like Vladimir Guer-
TMD: Who do you think would
win in a fight between Vladimir Guer-
rero and Pujols?
R: Definitely Pujols.
TMD: What do you think would
R: What would happen?
TMD: Yeah, like how would it go,
how would they get in a fight?
R: I dunno maybe they would com-
pete over something, like who has the
better ERA or -
TMD: Pujols or Guerrero, compet-
ing over the better ERA.?
R: OK, I don't know.
TMD: Maybe home runs.
R: Yeah, maybe home runs.
TMD: So what classes are you tak-
R: Spanish, History -
TMD: Are either of those your
R: Yeah, maybe a History major
and a Spanish minor.
TMD: Are either of these going to
be your major?
R: Yeah, maybe a History major
and a Spanish minor.
TMD: You have any characters in
R: Is this like, going in the news-
TMD: Yeah, you'll be able to read
TMD: No, actually I'm just some
weirdo who found you on Facebook.
R: Yeah, I mean, you just randomly
called Lauren up, and got stuck talk-
ing to me.
TMD: After this you can start a
Facebook group, "I've been randomly
interviewed for the Random Student
Interview." So what made you come
to Michigan from California?
R: A lot of things. I wanted to go to
the B-School, and my dad is from the
TMD: It's not too cold for you
R: No, it's not too bad.
TMD: Do you have Ugg boots for
R: (sigh) Yes.
TMD: Do they work?
R: Yeah, they're warm. I don't like
the way they look though. I just like
them because they're comfortable and
warm. I got them as a gift.
TMD: You don't like the style
R: No, I'm not a fan. I hate it when
girls wear them with short mini-
TMD: So what's your favorite col-
lege mascot? You can't say the Wol-
TMD: Why, does that make you
R: No, it does not make me gig-
gle. I just like USC. Even though I
TMD: I see. What about Stanford
their mascot is like a tree, right?
R: Yeah, or there's like UC Sant
Barbara is the Banana Slugs, or Irvin
is the Anteaters, and UC Davis is th
