THE EDITOR'S NOTEBOOK with KATE PEABODY
A look at the big news events this week and how important they really are. Conveniently rated from one to10.

THINGS DRINKING CAN'T EXCUSE
The trial of a woman who killed her baby began this,
week. Investigators claim that the baby probably
died from being put in a microwave, but the mother
cites that she had nothing to do with her child's
death. Too bad she also said that if she hadn't
been so drunk her child wouldn't have died.
OBAMA-KENNEDY?
First, it was Oprah. Now a new big name is endorsing
Barack Obama: Kennedy. Ted, Caroline, along with
many others of the Kennedy clan have chosen their
side in the electoral race. Hillary Clinton couldn't
have taken the news well, as she worked with Ted in
the Senate. Funny, it sounds like a bad reality show.

CRACKING DOWN ON BICYCLISTS
In Japan, police are cracking down on the habits of
bicyclists. Such offenses as using cell phones, listening
to headphones or holding an umbrella while biking will
land citizens a hefty fine. How many student pedestri-
ans need to be mowed down before Ann Arbor does
likewise?

You, Mr. or Ms. youth demographic, aren't as mysterious as you may think. Market researchers know how often you
wash your clothes and how you met your last love interest - they've spent millions tracking it. Recent data shows
the archetypal young consumer has changed over the last decade. Here's how advertisers plan to capitalize on it.
By Jessica Vosgerchian I Associate magazine editor

BUSINESS AS USUAL
Most people can tell you who won the Democratic
South Carolina primary on Saturday, but could
those people also tell you about what is happening
in other governments around the world? Italy's
prime minister hs resigned; Canada's minority
6 government is in danger of collapsing, and former
Prime Minister Mikhail Kasyanov, was banned
from running in the Russian elections. So the
economy is lousy, governments are failing, and
elections are scandalous. Is anything new?

WATCH OUT HBO
Miss Michigan, Kirsten Haglund, won Miss
America this past Saturday. The program, whose
ratings have been steadily declining for over a
decade, tried to promote a racier show this year
in order to attract more viewers. The trick? High-
2 waisted black bikinis in the swimsuit portion. Yes,
a racier Miss America, almost as racy as HBO.
LEDGER'S LAST STAND
Heath Ledger's death has caused a stir, especially
here on campus. Facebook groups and status
updates have mourned the loss of the film icon. The
toxicology tests aren't in yet, but there has been some
8 buzz about the involvement of Mary-Kate Olsen in
Ledger's death. She was called multiple times by the
masseuse who found him before authorities were
notified. Obviously, priorities were a bit skewed, but
maybe we should just make another Facebook group.
PERSON OF THE WEEK
CHRISTINE BEATTY
It reads like a "Gossip Girl" novel: two secret lovers texting
romantic messages to each other, planning sexual trysts and
thinking they're being oh-so-stealthy. The only difference is they
aren't 15 year olds.Beatty, former chief of staff to Detroit Mayor
Kwame Kilpatrick, resigned after a series of text messages
revealed that they had been having an affair, which they both
denied last summer. With
froamerican and her $140,000 job gone, a law
the Black Humanities school degree to complete
active and two kids from a previous
marriage, Beatty's life cer-
4 discussion on tainly isn't getting any easier.
If only she could have known
'HENOMENON how tragically perceptive she
was in this 2002 textmes-
tie sage to Kilpatrick: "So we are
W alton officially busted! LOL"
