The Arizona Daily Wildcat reported last week that UApresents, is dangerously underfunded. Lack of theater ticket sales has left UApresents scrambling for money and barely staying afloat with a recent $50,000 anonymous private donation. The crisis is common.

Most of it consists of brochures for the Chef Tony Knife set (one of the butcher knives can chop a tennis shoe in half!) or irate letters from Wildcat readers addressed to the "farts desk" informing us we should be stabbed in the face for picking on "You Got Served."

Recently, however, we've been delighted to receive a string of letters from Wildcat readers who all seem to have the same question on their minds: What's the arts desk secret for staying in shape? Read article]
