    “On the spot: Chaz Leichner, Computer engineering freshman”

    What’s the craziest news story you’ve heard lately?

    Well, I guess it would have to be about the current UN effort to eradicate heroin use. You know, how changing heroin production in Afghanistan will affect usage in the U.S.

    Why is that the craziest?

    It doesn’t take into account what we know about the economics of anything, let alone a highly desirable substance.

    You don’t like to watch anything fun and lighthearted?

    Well, I don’t watch much TV. But I like to look at pictures of kittens.

    You don’t watch much television? Why is that?

    I don’t own one.

    You don’t own a television? I would be lost. Why don’t you own one?

    I live in the dorms.

    OK. I can see that. But wait, you like to look at pictures of kittens? So, do you look at these kittens on your computer?

    Yeah. Blogs.

    Wait, there are blogs devoted to pictures of kittens on the Internet?

    Yeah. Haven’t you ever heard of Cute Overload?

    It’s a blog about kittens?

    They have lots of cute stuff.

    I see. So what is your favorite picture or what not on Cute Overload?

    They the Sphere.

    That one’s about kittens?

    No, gender and identity.

    All right, well, that was a nice tangent off of narcotics.

    What’s this for again?

    You are the “”On the Spot”” interview for today!

    What’s that?

    Do you read the Wildcat?

    Not really. (Awkward pause)

    Oh. Well, you will be in tomorrow’s paper! Yay!

    OK.
