Question: I use to be a big fan of yours until I found out you went to 'SC. I'm surprised that you can write. Just wait till the UCLA-USC game. Go Bruins!

Answer: I'm going to take the high road here and just congratulate you on your strong season thus far and say I look forward to a competitive matchup between our two schools on Dec. 3. Oh, and I gather from your e-mail that UCLA has finally wired its campus for Internet access. Or did you read Ask Ausiello at your parents' house? Either way, welcome to the 21st century, Wayne!
