PREPARING FOR ROYALTY
What Do 'U' Do?
Before You Were Here
Hot dog man, please step forward
Amid the mass of students in
the crowd for Saturday's football
game against Iowa, one rose above
all the others.
The man wound up in the mid-
dle of the second half and starting
flinging hot dogs to the students,
who began to cheer and stand up,
vying for one of the treats.
After throwing at least five hot
dogs wrapped in plastic, though,
stadium security caught on, deem-
ing the hot dogs pork projecticles.
As he was escorted out with
eight security guards, the student
section broke into chants of "Let
him stay!" and "Hot dog man!"
The question is who was this
mysterious figure? If it's you,
please claim your rightful place as
a hero of the students.

on Carpenter Road a few days
before classes started this semes-
I was using a machine I'd never
used before to place the order, and
it was taking me a long time to
enter my billing information cor-
Behind me, my mom started
a conversation with a woman
waiting in line. I didn't pay much
attention until the woman picked
up one of the books she had been
idly paging through and read us
"How to Deal With People You
Can't Stand," she said. "This would
come in handy in Lansing."
I turned around to see who
would make a comment like that
and was surprised to see State
Sen. Liz Brater.
As long as she reads it carefully,
she's got my'vote come Nov. 7.
When my roommate and I were
sitting in front of BD's Mongolian
Barbecue Friday night, waiting
for a table, a woman in an Eliza-
bethan-era skirt walked by. It was
about 4 feet wide.
We thought there might have
been a Renaissance fair in town,
then a man dressed like Shake-
speare came by. Later, after eat-
ing dinner, we left BD's to find a
group of about half a dozen people
dressed in Renaissance garb and
signing in Latin.
My roommate's brother was vis-
iting, and we told him Ann Arbor
is always this weird. We knew,
though, that that's kind of a lie.
