Melissa Carmel makes sure
students know where to
eat this Va ent n's Day.
This week's cover
story consists of news editor Anne VanderMey's
investigation into the University's Department
of Public Safety. DPS was created for the pro-
tection of students, but has always been seen
as a threat to students.
The magazine also includes a profile of Fleet-
wood Diner waitress Emilye Bangham, whose
worldly experiences and. attitudes give the
Fleetwood its one-of-a-kind reputation. Bang-
ham is looking to not only serve the community
the legendary food but enrich Ann Arbor with a
new group for artisans.
We also have the interesting insights into the
life of a campus bartender in this week's ver-
sion of "In My Own Words" - a weekly staple
that we instituted several weeks ago and have
been very pleased with.
In the words of the great former editor Doug
Wernert: Thanks for reading.

The Michigan Daily: Is Andrew
R: Yeah, this is Andrew.
TMD: I have great news, you've
been selected to do the Random Stu-
dent Interview. Do you have a few
R: Uh, yeah sure.
TMD: So we asked this ques-
tion last week but didn't get a good
answer. Do white people bore you?
R: Yeah, totally. They're lacking
in color and they're white.
TMD: Is it their haircuts?
R: It might be.
TMD: How about their music?
They like acid jazz. Are you white?
Do you like acid jazz?
R: Yeah, I'm white but no I don't.
TMD: Who's going to win the
R: I don't even know who's playing
because I am that much of a douche.
No wait I do know this, it's the Steel-
ers and the ...
TMD: The Seahawks. Do you
know who Jerome Bettis is?
TMD: He plays for the Steelers
and is from Detroit. Do you think
Kwame will fix the Super Bowl so
Jerome can get a ring?
R: Yes. He's going to do it with
TMD: Kwame does magic?
R: Didn't he always?
TMD: Do you think he's going to
demand a ring if they win?
R: I think he's going to demand
one for every finger.
TMD: The Super Bowl is going
to make prostitutes come to Detroit.
How many do you think are here
R: Already? In addition to the ones
already here? I've counted 17 and
when there's 17 prostitutes there are
about 40,000 others.
TMD: Do you think they take a
team bus to get here with their logo
on the side and 40-inch spinners?
R: I don't think they have a union
or anything but I am pretty sure they
found a bus with spinners.
TMD: Who wants to sex Mutom-
R: Doesn't everyone?
TMD: That's what I thought.
Who's your favorite Statement col-
umnist? What about our food colum-
nist? How about Cosi?
R: I like food. But I've never been
TMD: Would you assume that it's
a four-star restaurant?
R: From the decoration, yes. It's
very "we're imitating a four-star res-
TMD: Then do you think it actual
is a four-star restaurant?
R: I believe it is not because it's
trying to be one. I would rate it about
two stars with an asterisk saying I
had never been there.
TMD: What "Simpsons" character
would you want to make out with? I
would say Apu.
R: I would say Gil.
TMD: What would you rather
have, a third eye or a third arm? And
where would it be?
R: A third arm. It would probably
be under my left arm.
TMD: Would you rather have your
mom walk in on you masturbating or
walk in on your mom masturbating?
R: I would have to say the first
TMD: Well I would've gone with
the second. If you could make up a
state motto what would it be?
R: Florida: The flaccid penis of
TMD: What song would be your
R: "Big Pimpin'"
TMD: Nice. Jay-Z. Mine is "What
it Do" by David Banner.
R: Never heard of him. Sorry, I'm
just not that cool. I feel bad that you
TMD: Really? Ever heard of Mis-
R: The state?
TMD: Yeah, the state. He pretty
much runs it. Do you like screwed
and chopped music?
R: I don't know what that is.
TMD: See this is what I'm talking
about when I say white people's music
bores us. What do you listen to?
R: I guess I listen to the other
type of boring white-people music. I
wouldn't say indie but I wouldn't say
TMD: You're one of those kids.
Well screwed and chopped is when
they slow music down and make
it sound awesome. What albums
might you want to hear screwed and
R: I suppose the point would be to
slow down something really fast.
TMD: Not really, no.
R: Um, slow down like an Iron and
Wine album and then it would just like
stop. They're too slow already.
TMD: They are too slow aren't
they? Do you like Iron and Wine? That
