The pressures put on college students to make the right decisions in their life is too stressful for any person to bear. Should we grab a beer at U.B.U. or should we study for that - oh so interesting civics exam? Should we eat that greasy hamburger or worry about our cholesterol? What kind of tattoo should I get and where should I put it? All of life's decisions thrown in our face and now the media has everyone in a frenzy about the new "Late Night King". College students make up a huge portion of couch potatoes watching late night television. Now we have been given the dubious honor of choosing a new late night master to rule the kingdom of veg-heads. Johnny Carson leaving NBC ended an era. Now it's time for our generation to choose our own icon, but with choices such as Arsenio Hall, Chevy Chase, Conan O'Brien, Jay Leno and of course David Letterman, it's hard to choose just one to watch. "I really can't say which late night talk show I like the best. I switch back and forth. It just gives me another excuse for not studying," said Freshman John Rathgeber. Freshman Juan Rodriquez stated, "I'm like a T.V. fiend. I watch Chevy and Arsenio first because they come on early, then I catch Letterman which comes on after both of them, then I switch to Conan O'Brien. I have no life." U. The National College Magazine conducted a nationwide phone-in opinion poll. Out of 1046 responses 89% of college students said they would prefer to hand the late night throne over to CBS's newly acquired investment, David Letterman. "I like Letterman. He's a smart-ass. He doesn't take things too serious and I think college students realize if you take things seriously, life is going to be miserable," said Senior marketing major Krystine Brosche. Freshman Gabriel Urquizo stated, "Most everyone in my dorm watches Letterman, but I really prefer Arsenio. He's cool." In the tale of King Arthur, a country was left in turmoil for years because the land had no king to rule. It is now time to pick our new king, for couch potatoes everywhere are running amok without a king to rule their desolate kingdom of laziness. -JoAnn Stephens Bavid Letterman visited the University of Houston via a cardboard cut out.
