Chalmers knew something was fishy
when the man told her the urinator
was someone she knew. She followed
her suspicions and emptied the cash
locker of 90 percent of the bills and
locked the money in an office.
After an uneasy 15 minutes of
standing near the change box, the
visibly intoxicated man made a dash
for the remaining cash.
"He grabbed a fistful of bills,"
said Edward Decker, RC senior and
cashier for the event. The man also
took the cash box.
Decker and fellow cashier Andy
Linn, an RC senior, immediately
pushed the offender against a wall
and exchanged strong words.
Decker wrestled the cash box from
the thief. Flailing, the thief managed
to remove himself from the grip of
Decker and Linn and ran toward the
_ Seeing the bandit stuff his hand
into his back pocket, an LSA junior
who wished not to be named for
fear of retribution rushed over and
grabbed the thief by the arm. The
man wrestled his arm free. But the
junior again caught him, this time by
"As I was trying to get the money,
he kind of sucker-punched me just
above the left eye," the junior said.
Punching himself free of the junior,
the man made his way outside.
LSA senior Dave Armitage said
three or four police cars then sur-
rounded the fleeing thief.
Visibly agitated, the suspect started
yelling and swearing at the police.
"I don't want to fight," he said
when police pushed him against a car
and handcuffed him.
He didn't stop fighting.
"He started going nuts in the back
of the car and banging around,"
Officers transported the suspect
to the Washtenaw County Jail. All of
the money was eventually returned.

explosive device, and he wasn't injured, ABC said.
"Wars are not fought on the training ground, nor can they
be covered from a TV studio," CBS News anchor Bob Schief-
fer said Sunday, setting aside his weekly "Face the Nation"
commentary for a report on the incident. "They are not real-
ity shows, they are reality. Young men and women have to
fight them, and correspondents have to cover them if we are to
understand what they are about."
Woodruff took over as "World News Tonight" co-
anchor with Elizabeth Vargas this month, replacing the
late Peter Jennings.
Westin has said he wants two people on the job, in
part because one of the anchors will usually be on the
road covering stories while the other is studio-bound.
In just four weeks, Woodruff has been to Iran, Iraq,
Israel twice and California to interview the found-
ers of Google. Technology makes it easier to anchor
a broadcast from remote sites than it was even a few
CNN is also quick to send anchor Anderson Cooper to
the scene of stories.
"I seem to see journalists getting more and more involved
in dangerous situations, from Anderson Cooper and Al
Roker getting blown down in Katrina, to a young journal-
ist from the Christian Science Monitor being held hostage,
to a main network anchor getting seriously injured," said
Jeff Alan, news director at KOIN-TV in Portland, Ore.,
and author of "Anchoring America: The Changing Face of
Network News." "When do news managers making these
assignments say'enough is enough'?"
But any responsible journalist who wants to report on
what is going on somewhere needs to be there, said CBS
News correspondent Lara Logan, who was blown 12 feet
in the air but escaped with minor injuries when a military
convoy she was traveling with in Afghanistan was attacked
"If you really want to cover the story, if you believe in what
you're doing, you have absolutely no choice," Logan told The
Associated Press. "If you want to be safe, don't go to Iraq."

"We can't tell DPS what to do," said task force
member Luay Almassalha, a representative from
Resolution author Tim Bekkers, a representative
from South Quadrangle, said he talked with DPS
officials and was told that officers can only enforce
rules on University property.
If the 25-foot perimeter extends to city property,
he said, DPS could not enforce the rule.
Almassalha said students are more supportive of
the proposed ban this year.
"There are so many sides to this issue," Almas-
salha said. "RHA wants to represent constituents
as broadly as possible."
There is some confusion over how the resolu-
tion will affect residence halls with courtyards,
Williams said. She said it could be a safety issue
if smokers have to lump together in the center of
The resolution would not only affect students,
but also faculty, staff and visitors.
Bekkers also talked with smokers before writing
the resolution. He said there was a consensus that
limitations on smoking are acceptable.
"We all have rights and our rights go as far as
we can until they infringe on others," said Bekkers,
who said he smokes occasionally.
RC freshman Rob Linn disagreed.
"It's a little too far," said Linn, smoking a cigarette
outside East Quadrangle. "This resolution sucks."
A bill introduced in the state House and the
Senate last April would ban smoking in all public
Continued from page 1A
The state chapter did not respond
to phone calls asking for comment.
In the letter, she said she has never
been one to "settle for garbage that is
handed down to (her) ... and to walk
around, representing an organization
that has done so ... is unbearable."
Moffett and Riana Anderson, pres-
ident of the campus chapter of the
NAACP, both refused to comment.
The state chapter's "actions have
continuously proven to be jealous and
petty," Moffett said.
Moffett also hinted at internal con-
flict within the NAACP: "The fact
that we have yet to inform our mem-
bership about what is going on within
our organization is wrong."
Moffett's presence will be missed,
said LSA sophomore Raheam Shal-
hout, a member of the NAACP.
"Alex Moffett was a great candi-
date," he said. "I voted for her."

one that demands respect.
Even though they advanced to the Super Bowl
as the No. I seed in the NFC, the Seahawks enter
the game as four-point underdogs. Their oppo-
nent, the Pittsburgh Steelers, is a wild card team
that was the AFC's sixth seed.
The Steelers are set to fly into Detroit Metro
Airport on a charter flight at 10 this morning.
Their arrival is closed to the public.
Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselback said
that when the NFL announced Detroit was the
host, he heard people complain it was going to be
cold and that, together with a number of other of
factors, made the city a poor choice.
Hasselback said he thought differently.
"My immediate reaction was: 'Are you kid-
ding me? It's the Super Bowl,' " Hasselback said.
"Why does that matter what the weather's like?
I've actually been to Detroit a few times before,
and I liked it here."
Mack Strong, the Seahawks' Pro Bowl full-
back, has been with the team for 13 years, more
than any other player. He said that until the
Seahawks' pep rally this morning at Qwest Field,
it never really set in that he was heading to the
"This is the most exciting time of my life, pro-
fessionally," Strong said. "That's the only way I
can describe it."
About 15,000 of their now notoriously rabid
fans cheered for the team at the field before they
boarded the plane, Strong said.
Holmgren jokingly described the plane ride
from Seattle to Detroit as "very rough."
Paul Allen, the team's famously rich owner who
made his living by co-founding Microsoft, bought
a plane for the team to use for travel. Holmgren
said he slept most of the way, but added that the
plane is equipped with "all these electronic gad-
gets." All the seats are first-class seats, and the
flight crew was the same they've had all year, mak-
ing the entire trip very comfortable, he said.

for others, and vice versa.
