    “On the spot: Chris Cruz, Political science juniorÿ”

    So have you registered for classes yet?

    Uh, no, not yet. I think I’m scheduled to do it on Tuesday.

    Well, this semester it’s a little different isn’t it? Have you looked at the new system, UAccess?

    Yeah, I have reserved some classes or whatever. You know, put them in my shopping cart.

    How do you feel about that feature? I mean, I think it’s pretty cool, kind of like shopping on eBay or Amazon.

    Yeah, I don’t do a lot of eBay shopping because I don’t have much money to spend, but yeah, it kind of seems like that. I don’t mind it.

    Do you think you will be able to enroll in the classes that you want?

    Yeah, it shouldn’t be a big deal.

    What classes are you registering for since you are a political science major?

    Probably classes related to international relations, governments and economy. Stuff like that.

    OK, Jeopardy time: What is one of the biggest things going on right now in the political sphere?

    Health care.

    And your opinion?

    I’m for it.

    Can you elaborate on that?

    I just think it’s a right that everyone should have. Everyone should be able to go see a doctor. If you can’t afford it, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be able to go.

    Nicely put. So tell me, is there anything else we should know in terms of international affairs?

    Yeah. The president just signed a big deal to reduce the amount of nuclear arms with Russia and the U.S., so that’s a really good thing if you don’t like nuclear war.

    Yeah, I don’t really want to be blown up in the near future so that would probably be a good thing.

    Well, this just ensures that you won’t be blown up as many times.

    Oh, OK. Because the one time wouldn’t already kill me, right?

    Well, that depends on the blast radius. I really couldn’t tell you.

    (Laughs.) OK, well I’ll just try to take cover if I hear of anything.

    Hide under a table, that’s a good one. And I think there is a fall-out shelter in the Education building.

    Really? Sweet! Learn something new every day. I might have to check it out.
