As last Friday's convocation was about to begin, students in the balcony unfurled a poster that said, "Let's Bring Back Need Blind!" The theme of that week's convocation was "Breaking Barriers, Creating Connections: The Campaign for Carleton," a formal announcement of a special fundraising campaign that Carleton is going on to fund a variety of new initiatives. The only other convocation all term that has rivalled this one for attendance was the May 11 talk by Steven Levitt. But why the poster?

Today we're introducing a new feature in Shout, called "Ten Questions With..." Every month, we will be conducting a 10-question interview with a member of the Carleton faculty or administration, and presenting the transcript for your reading enjoyment.
Our first interview is with Sam Demas, the college librarian. Okay, it ran a little over ten questions, but it should still be interesting reading.
