And this letter to the editor:
Efforts to stop Naked Mile are useless
To the Daily:
It is that time of year again. Classes are winding down, finals are approaching and I’m sure the University is flooding campus with signs saying how running the Naked Mile will result in you being charged with a sex crime and how you’ll be photographed and such. The purpose of this is of course to scare people from running. It has worked, and the number of runners has decreased every year. In my opinion, this is a total misuse of University and police resources. We’re not talking about a heinous crime, but an innocent tradition at which seniors can express their happiness at finally graduating. I ran the mile last year and was not arrested — though some of my friends were caught, but were not charged with a sex crime — and did not see a single photographer. Because the police will no doubt be lining the Naked Mile route at midnight, I suggest seniors make their own route or run at a different time (11 p.m. or 1 a.m. instead of midnight.) to avoid arrest. Don’t let the University destroy another tradition.
