some good stuff in the

Our cover study is on
the arguments for and
against privatizing the

that has gained a consid-

Our secondary story is on the new curriculum at the
Art and Design School. This year's graduating class was
the first to fully go through all of the curriculum changes,
and now that they are poised to graduate, we examine
whether the changes were worth it and how many in the
department. has been affected.
This magazine also marks the last columns for our
current set of columnists. Next semester, you'll see
some new faces with some new ideas. If you're inter-

Finally, our superheroes debate over Bobby Bowden and
Joe Paterno, the two legendary coaches who will match

Thanks for reading.
Tl higan Daily: Hi, my
amok s victoria and you've been
chose to do the Random Student
Inter ew for The Michigan Daily.
Q like to do it?
TMD: All right, the first question
I've got is: Are you feeling more "I
Touch Myself' or "Sexual Healing?"
R: Definitely, "Sexual Healing."
TMD: Why do you feel more like
"Sexual Healing" when I feel more
like "I Touch Myself?"
R: Well it's always better with
someone else obviously.
TMD: Well I'm glad you have
that option. Good for you. OK, next
question: what is your emotional
age? Like what age do you feel? For
example I feel like I'm 16, because I
still feel like I just got my license.
R: Depends on what I'm doing.
When I'm doing homework I feel
like I'm 85.
TMD: Oh God, average it.
R: I guess on average I'd say 40, but
most of the time I feel like I'm 14.
R: I do a lot of loud singing.
TMD: Loud singing? Me, too.
What's your favorite thing to sing?
R: My roommate and I like to
play sleazy oldies music, and play it
really loud in our dorm.
TMD: Do you like Billy Joel by
any chance? I'm a huge fan.
R: Yeah, I don't see why not.
TMD: How do you feel about
Hanukkah Harry? I think he's a
bush or something.
TMD: Hmm, nothing about
Hanukkah Harry? Are you famil-
iar with Hanukkah Harry? No? OK,
next question. So finals are coming
up. How do you stay up for 24 hours
R: Mountain Dew.
TMD: You can do that with just
Mountain Dew? How much Moun-
R: I'd say probably a bottle every
TMD: That's it? Jesus that's
great, cause I'm all coffee, because
it's really hard for me to stay up.
R: I have a personal thing against
TMD: You have a personal thing
against coffee? And you're in col-
lege? How do you survive?
R: I know as soon as I start drink-
ing, I'll get addicted like everyone
else, so I refuse to get involved in
the whole situation.
TMD: OK, so you're rebelling.
Good for you. Are you familiar with
the Paris and Nicky split? Who do
you relate to more: Paris or Nicky?
R: I don't like either of them
TMD: Why not?
R: Cause I think they're sleazy.
But I know more about Paris, so I'll
go with that.
TMD: How old do you think she
was when she lost her virginity?
R: Probably like, 8.
TMD: Well that's legal in some
states, I'm sure. OK great. Do you
think Paris is killing Nicky psycho-
logically? I just noticed how skinny
(Nicky) was getting all of the sudden.
R: Either that or she's got the
Olsen twins thing going on, and is
doing a lot of crack.
TMD: I think cocaine, because
I'm pretty sure they can afford it.
And do you know where Lindsay
Lohan would fit into all of this?
R: I used to like Lindsay Lohan.
TMD: So did I! Wasn't she hot in
"Mean Girls" when she had boobs
R: Yeah, then she was cool
because she was like a real person.
TMD: And now she looks really sick.
R: Now, she's just the same as
Britney Spears. She's like the exact
TMD: Except Britney Spears is
a lot dirtier, right? I think the guy
Britney Spears is with makes her a
lot dirtier than everyone else. All
right, anyway, do you know about
the Nick Lachey and Jessica Simp-
son breakup. Who do you think will
get over the breakup first? Nick
Lachey or Jessica Simpson?
R: I have no idea. I hate all these
people, so I just do my best to avoid
. TMD: OK, sorry about that. If
you were on a safari what animal
would you shoot first?
R: Definitely a gazelle cause
that's like my personal animal.
TMD: You have a personal ani-
mal? Does everyone have a personal
R: Yeah, definitely.
TMD: And you're a gazelle
R: Because they're just awesome.
TMD: Give me more, give me
more. I want descriptive awesome.
R: Everyone on my team says
I run like a gazelle. And I think it
would just be sweet to be able to
run forever in big open fields like
TMD: What team?
R: Ultimate Frisbee.
TMD: Oh, you're on the Ultimate
Frisbee team? If you love gazelles
so much, why would you want to
shoot one? (Wouldn't) it kind of be
like committing suicide and shoot-
R: No, because then I could shoot
it and look at it.
TMD: Oh, because you can't be
one, you're getting back at it?
R: If I can't be it, he can't be it
TMD: Great, take it out on the
gazelle, that's good. OK, how many
of your Facebook friends have you
hooked up with?
R: Well none. I don't do that.
TMD: Are you on Facebook?
