I strike up a conversation with a woman -- or should I say, a "nubile young coed"? That's the way she'd be described in one of the sleazier videos. Smiling brightly, she was beaming, and came across to me as speaking with precision and glee -- as if she had just discovered a wonderful secret that would serve her well for the rest of her life.
So -- did you run this year?
[Factual and emphatic:] I did.
And you were totally naked?
[The same:] I was totally naked.
I did it last year -- isn't it great?
It was great!
How many times have you done it?
Just once. It's my senior year.
Last chance while you're still here?
What you think about all the cops?
I think it's bullshit. It's absolute bullshit. I think it's a tradition, and if we want to do it we should be able to do it, without the hassle. It's not like we're hurting anybody -- we just want to run across campus -- like any other day we run across campus -- we're just naked.
Did many cops threatened to arrest you, or anything?
No, but we had to run right past them as they were arresting other people. So wasn't such an issue.
Oh, so they were arresting some other people?
On South U. [South University Avenue], they were arresting people. Like, a guy was walking naked down South U. in handcuffs. Which kind of defeats the purpose. If you don't want them running naked, don't handcuff them and make them walk naked! That's my philosophy.
Sounds like a good one to me!
