RECRUITS
Continued from page 1A
depth chart, Carr said.
The recruiting season did not conclude without
some disappointment for Michigan. Scout.com's No.
1 cornerback prospect, Jai Eugene, verbally com-
mitted to Michigan on June 7, according to GoBlue-
Wolverine.com. Just over three weeks later, on Jan.
30, Eugene retracted his commitment and yesterday
signed a letter of intent with Louisiana State Univer-
sity. LSU's campus is just miles away from his home
in Destrehan, La.
Michigan will add a 19th member to its class some-
time next week when kicker Bryan Wright - who has
already verbally committed - signs his letter of intent.
Carr refrained from making authoritative state-
ments about the future of the recruiting class but said
he had a positive feeling.
"We're excited about this recruiting class," the
coach said. "I don't normally make predictions, but I
think for those of you that will be here four or five
years from now, my prediction is that this is going to
be one of the better classes we've had. The potential is
outstanding."

COFFEE
Continued from page 1A
Steven Meyers, executive chef
for the University dining halls,
said dorm diners consume more
than 1,600 pounds of coffee
per year. That adds up to about
$1,500.
Although organic, fair-trade
coffee beans are typically more
expensive, Meyers said although
it will more than double the cur-
rent price, the increase will not
affect student room and board
fees.
Meyers said the change was
largely the result of student pres-
sure.
"I've never had as much stu-
dent input and communication
on a single item," Meyers said.
"They impressed me with how
forthcoming they were with
their comments on fair-trade

coffee."
In late October, Meyers
received more than 125 e-mails
from students in support of the
change. Students delivered a
giant, cardboard coffee cup
bearing the signatures and e-
mail addresses of about 300 stu-
dents.
"As someone who samples the
coffee, I'm not a big fan," said
LSA sophomore Luay Almass-
alha, a West Quad resident. "1
do think fair-trade tastes bet-
ter."
The Environmental Justice
Group was encouraged by Mich-
igan State University's decision
to switch to fair-trade coffee last
year. MSU was the first univer-
sity with buffet dining halls to
do so.
- Andrew Grossman
contributed to this report.

CUTS
Continued from page 1A
kids out of school, and when
higher education gets hurt, the
economy gets hurt as well."
The bill barely passed
through the House on Dec.
19 by a vote of 212-206, but
because of minor Senate
amendments, the House had
to reconsider it yesterday. The
Senate approved the budget
measure 51-50 with Vice Pres-
ident Dick Cheney casting the
tie-breaking vote.
The voting yesterday
broke down almost entirely
by party lines. In the House
vote yesterday, 200 out of 201
Democrats and the only Inde-
pendent voted against it. One
Democrat abstained. All but
13 of the 229 present House
Republicans voted for it.

IRV
Continued from page 1A
Loucks, a member of the Michigan Green
Party.
The coalition has been pushing for IRV
since early 2004, but has so far been unsuc-
cessful in getting their proposal on the voting
ballot for a city charter amendment.
The coalition's current proposal for adopt-
ing IRV in Ann Arbor includes eliminat-
ing all odd-year partisan primaries for City
Council elections and all August primaries
and switching over to nonpartisan IRV pri-
maries for all even-year elections
The proposal could be added if City Coun-
cil votes to put it on the ballot with a simple
majority vote from its eleven members or the
coalition could bypass City Council by peti-
tioning, which would put the IRV proposal
on the ballot in a city election.
"We need 4,000 petition signatures in
order to put our proposal on the ballot, but
we have to get about 7,000 to be safe," said
Craig Harvey, leader of the Michigan Green

Party's Ann Arbor IRV movement.
He expects the petition to take about 2,000
hours of work.
Supporters of IRV say current problems
with the U.S. voting system are getting far
too serious to be ignored. One of the com-
mon problems with plurality is minority rule,
a case where the winner is elected without
the majority of the vote. Furthermore, plural-
ity sometimes allows candidates with little
chance of winning to knock off popular can-
didates.
One of the common criticisms facing IRV
is that it gets too complex for the average
voter, since it forces him to decide his pref-
erences all at once. Critics also say it allows
for too much strategic voting. For example,
a person could mathematically determine
hypothetical rankings of candidates in later
rounds and potentially sabotage certain can-
didates.
Kestenbaum said that while critics often
bring up this argument up, it is highly
improbable that anyone could play the sys-
tem in this way to their advantage.

For Thursday, Feb. 2, 2006
ARIES
(March 21 to April 19)
Be careful not to promise more than
you can deliver, especially in situations
where you are responsible for some-
thing. This also applies to how you han-
dle shared property. Caution.
TAURUS
(April 20 to May 20)
In your attempt to please partners and
bosses, you could lose your way. If you
cannot do both, come clean. Don't prom-
ise the world if you can't deliver it.
GEMINI
(May 21 to June 20)
Because you think fast, talk fast, work
fast and move fast, you think you can
deliver the impossible. But you put your
pants on one leg at a time like everyone
else. (Gotta remember this.)
CANCER
(June 21 to July 22)
Be careful about the promises you
make to children today. Children believe
your promises. They think adults know
what they're doing. Don't make a com-
mitment you cannot keep.
LEO
(July 23 to Aug. 22)
You have high hopes with close part-
nerships lately. Leos like to believe the
best about their friends because they
refuse to see the faults in their loved
ones, especially their children.
VIRGO
(Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)

served is no excuse.) Avoid excess.
SCORPIO
(Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)
Don't make grandiose promises to
family members, especially parents. For
some reason, you're tempted to do this.
(You know who you are.)
SAGITTARIUS
(Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)
Today (and yesterday) your eyes are
bigger than your stomach. It's very easy
for you to overextend yourself because
you're naturally enthusiastic about
everything. Be very careful right now.
CAPRICORN
(Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)
Watch your money today. If something
looks too good to be true, it is. Don't go
out on a limb (you might fall off).
AQUARIUS
(Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)
You have big ideas about travel, pub-
lishing and education right now. Try to
stay realistic. Wait and see how things
look in a few days. You need some time
to get a better perspective.
PISCES
(Feb. 19 to March 20)
You're ready to give a friend the shirt
off your back today. While this is a noble
impulse, make sure you have another
shirt to wear! Don't bet the farm.
YOU BORN TODAY You're cosmo-
politan, sophisticated and downright
classy. Artistically, you're extremely
original. You make everything look easy.
Many of you turn your hobbies into a
