Playboy: Tell us how you really feel about deadlines. Connie: I actually love the pressure of meeting a deadline. It forces me to get something out with enough time for a couple of intense editing sessions, rather than lingering over a paper for weeks and obsessing over every word. Playboy: Which Arkansas academic department has the sexiest coeds? Connie: Journalism, of course! We’re inquisitive and have to be aggressive to get all of the answers for a story. And we can pull off the sexy librarian look. Playboy: What’s worse—a guy with no books in his house or a guy with lots of unfavorable ones? Connie: That’s tough. Both are pretty scary! I would have to say a guy with no books at all is worse. Reading garbage is better than not reading at all.
