Issue: "Bush: Crunch time," March 4, 2000

Gag notice accidentally published by The Philadelphia Inquirer instead of the typical message, "The Editorial Board will respond to as many calls as possible."

Those are not our true feelings."

Politics and religion have been reluctant bedfellows at times, but strangers they are not.

Archbishop of Canterbury George Carey in a speech on spirituality and morality in public life. He declared: "Anybody who thinks that morality can be viewed as purely a private affair, a matter of individual opinion, a matter of what feels right for me is, in my opinion, deluded."

University of California, Santa Cruz, student Jordan Benjamin, who supported a move by one of the nation's most liberal universities to scrap its 30-year experiment with alternative, narrative, essay-like evaluations in place of actual letter grades. Under the new system, set to begin in fall 2001, each new student would have to take 75 percent of his classes for a grade. The rest could be taken on a pass/fail basis.

If we tried to put up a similar website, our entire network would crash under the sheer volume of material.
