Life's not



January 18, 2001”


Here are some things
that would prove that
old adage “Who said
life's fair?" Not all
are true, but all
would definitely be
“unfair" in one way
or another. Either
that or something
that seems to bug
me or people I know.

Ninety-nine percent of
us will never get to
date a supermodel or
superstar. male or
female, just for the
sake of saying that
we did. In my book,
that is just not lair
for any of us. Alyssa
Milano, if you happen
to read this, could
you make life fair for
me? Just asking


Traffic. That is not
necessarily unfair,
but still it seems like
it to some. i see the
faces of people in
traffic all the time
with their scowls and
grimaces (By the
way. why is a
character promoting
food a word that
generally has a
connotation? I eat
the food and
Grimace? Ummm
good!) and wonder
why they do not
bring good music
with them in the car.
The cost of a CD
player is well worth
it considering the
loss of agony in
traffic that you can

l have said it before, but
I will say it again.
Older people with the
fear of breaking their
hips get to drive all
the nice cars. for the
most part. Some of
the more affluent
students on campus
seem to drive nice
cars, too. Yeah,
that's not fair either!

Richard Simmons is
famous. 00 I need to
say anything else

Teachers get paid a
teensy little bit
compared to some
occupations that
have less effect on
the future. They also
get all holidays off
and a decent pension
that cannot be
touched by inflation.
Yeah, neither of
those is fair.

A great baseball player,
Kirby Puckett, had to
stop playing because
of glaucoma. That
sucks. Makes it a
little easier to
swallow when he
gets into the Hall of
Fame in his first try.
Congrats to him and
Dave Winfield.

A speed trap. Yeah. That
is not fair either.

Flat tires. Yeah. That

Whitmore visits
campus, students

The facts: The Kernel spoke with UK Presidential Candidate Jon
Whitmore about his thoughts on UK and why he wants to be president

By Julie Nelson

Editor's note:

This interview is the first of
a three-part question and answer
series on the presidential

Questions Answers

Q: Students have criticized President Wethington for not
interacting with them. Many students, when asked. are not
even sure what his name is or what he looks like. If you came
to UK. what efforts would you make to have a more interac-
tive relationship with the students?

A: I do think it is important for the president to interact
with students. but it is impossible to interact with 20.000 stu-
dents. There ought to be devices to help. like periodic meet-
ings with elected leadership. I personally as provost have a Q:
student advisory group where we have pizza and soda three
times a semester. I always find if you serve food, students will
come. It has proven very useful in finding out if the advising
system works or if there are registration problems. I also like
to walk around campus and talk to students. although there is

not a lot oftime for that.

Q: Many students expressed concerns at the presidential
search forums about the growth of our University. Many feel
that there are too many buildings and not enough green
space. How would you deal with this issue? Are you support-
ive of campus growth. and if so. how do you propose that we
do have enough green space on campus?

A: Growth in Kentucky means growth in universities.
Growth needs to be planned and carefully managed so that
the quality doesn‘t slip. Most campuses have a space short-
age. but luckily economies in states are pretty good and I
know Kentucky is putting new dollars into building and I
think that‘s positive. We prepared master plans in Texas and
Iowa to look at the campus to see where green Space was still
available. There are ways to try to be sensitive to those needs.
Campuses need to be attractive and have communal

gathering spaces available.

Q: Many students on our campus feel very strongly about
UK‘s involvement with the Fair Labor Association. Sweat-
shop issues are very important to these students and there
has been a committee formed to investigate the FLA and de-
cide on a possible switch to the Workers' Rights Consortium.
What would be your position on sweatshop issues and would
you be supportive of making a switch to another watchdog


A: We have had some students who share those concerns
at Iowa and the position we've taken, which is right for our
campus. is that we belong to both organizations and in a
sense were working with both of them to see that their goals
are successful. I read that both organizations are struggling A
to get going and the issues they are dealing with are large. We
would like to see both succeed and to the best of our ability
we will take part in both of them. If one should emerge. we
might consider choosing one over the other.

The Kernel asked a series of
questions to each candidate fo-
cusing on campus issues.

Jon Whitmore is visiting
campus today. Whitmore is cur-
rently the provost at the Univer-
sity of Iowa. Below are Whit-
more's responses to the ques-

tions. If you have questions you
would like to ask the candidates.

what the powers of education can do.

Q: What theater productions

What was your favorite role'.’

A: ()edipus. in the Greek tragedy

MANILA. Philippines With riot police

records they say would prove Estrada grew rich
off corruption during 18 months in office. The
Senate vote was seen as virtually ending the cor-

Q: What would your goals
be for our University? What are
some of our problem areas that
you would like to remedy as

A: A major goal would be
to help top.20 efforts that have
been so clearly articulated.
That needs to be done on a
number of fronts. The presi-
dent needs to work with all con-
stituents to make sure that the
best students are brought to UK
and that there are scholarships
and student support programs
so that students can come re-
gardless of their financial situa-
tions. The president's support
staff is absolutely critical. The
president needs to build an in»
frastructure so that what hap-
pens betWeen faculty. students.
staff and industry can happen
on the campus with the kinds
of facilities and equipment that
are needed to do that well. We
need partnerships with alumni.
ag leaders. business leaders.
the governor‘s office and the
legislature to get to the top/.20
goal. A blueprint and academic.
plan is needed.

Q: How do you feel about
UK‘s goal to become a top—20 re,»
search university? How would
you maintain quality ofthe un-
dergraduate studies program
with our mission to become a
top-20 research university?

A: It is in the top»20 class of
universities that there is a bal-
ance thwecn the undergradu-
ate and graduate programs. I
don't think you measure top-20
by the research dollars brought
in. but by the quality of the aca-
demic, programs. the quality of
undergraduate education and
the satisfaction that students
have of the education they are

Q: A former member of our
football staff has just admitted
that he committed tWo NCAA
violations and there are now in—
\‘estigations taking place. Do
the internal investigations of
our football staff make you ap-

prehensive about coming to

A: No. It‘s unfortunate that
the incident has happened. The
important thing is how the Uni-
versity handles it and that the
public trusts the University.
The public trust can be men
gaged by having a thorough in-
vestigation. Once a final report
is made. the issues are revealed
and some decisions have to be
made about how it affects the
athletics program. I think the
appropriate steps are being tak-
en. but those sorts of things
happen periodically on various

Q: What personal qualities
do you feel best qualify you for
the job?

A: I‘ve looked at the job de
scription and my experiences
match up perfectly with the
kinds of experiences they are
looking for. I‘ve been an active
researcher and scholar. I‘ve
spent my entire career in edu-
cation. in every position. I've
increased my responsibilities
to second to the president.

I think I have all the right
administrative experiences.
The University of Iowa is a top
20 university. Texas is in the
top 10 toll! and I bring the per;
spective of having spent the last
11 to 12 years at good universi-

Q: UK is known in Kcnv
tucky as a “best buy“ for a col-
lege education because of our
low tuition rates. Are you a
supporter of annual tuition
hikes? Why or why not?

A: Yes. I think they have to
be calculated relative to the in-
crease in income of the citizens
of the state. If the University is
going to move up. every one of
its resource pools is going to
have to be raised. At Iowa. we
never raise tuition without
having discussions with stu—
dents. This year there was a 9.9
percent hike. Students did not
oppose the hike because we
tumed around the plan to help
them. With raising tuition
comes responsibility to talk
about why. Whenever we raise
tuition. we set aside 16 percent
to increase the money we have
to give to students through fi
nancial aid and scholarships.

Path of musical revolution

By Tim Staley

Please Please Me. 1963

The album that started it all. This was the
world‘s introduction» to the Beatles. While half the
album is cover songs. the soontribe-famous song-
writing duo of Lennon McCartney are already in
prime form with such tracks as "I Saw Her Standing
There" and "Please Please Me."

With the Beatles. 1969

Mitch like their previous album. this disc is a
mix of originals and covers. It is also George llarri-
son‘s songwriting debut. Their covers reflect their
love of American soul music and their own material
established them as a creative force to be reckoned

Beatles For Sale. I961

This album is in the same vein of their other
two releases. They are still in their sugary pop
mode. but glimpses of their later brilliance can be
seen in tracks like “I'll Follow the Sun."

Hard Day 29 Night. I964

All the Beatles. all the time. This is the first al»
burn that contains nothing but original songs. (‘oin-
cidentally. this is the soundtrack to their first mo-
tion picture.

Help.’. 196’)
Iffor no other reason. IIc/p."s place in music his

tory is secure due to the fact that it contains one of

the greatest pop songs ever written. "Yesterday."
Fortunately. “Yesterday" is not the outing's only
great track. The album is packed full of songs that.
while not as perfect. are equally well crafted.

Rubber Soul. I965

There is absolutely no reason not to love this ale
bum. It is one of those rare albums where every
song is as great as the one before it. "Girl." "In My
Life" and “I‘m Looking Through You" are lost a few
of the tasty morsels to be found.

Itcirolt‘er. I966

Follow the white rabbit? Iv’ci-oit'er marks the
Beatles entry into the world of psychedelia. (‘on
trary to popular belief. Reroli'er. not Sgt. Pepper's is
the greatest single Beatles album ever
made. Every song could stand on its
own as a tribute to why the l’ab

track works together to create a
sum greater than the parts.

Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts

Arguably one of the

Beatles (ll'lu'te Album I. I968

This album is an example of when too nitich can
be a bad thing. While this is a good double album. it
could have been a magnificent single album. Beside
such brilliant songs as "While My Guitar Gently
Weeps.” "Blackbird" and "Revolution I" are dismal
efforts such as "Wild llonev l’ie." "l’iggies" and
“Revolution 9."

Abbey Road. I969

Though this is the last Beatles album that was
recorded. it was released prior to the "final" Beatles
albums. The stripped down feel that the group began
with this album's true lit‘t'tlet'essrii‘, "Let It Be." is
