EDITORIAL: Cheers and boos

Cheers to Doug Perlitz '92 for staying in Haiti to continue his mission helping poor children in the face of increasing violence and political unrest.

EDITORIAL: War on plagiarism

As a newspaper, The Mirror treats issues of plagiarism and dishonesty with the utmost importance. It is time for students, faculty and administration at Fairfield to do the same.

EDITORIAL: Security going too far

Every student on this campus should be thankful for Fairfield University's Security Department.

Unfortunately, only a meager amount of Fairfield students bothered to show up to the socially conscious "E-race-ism" event in the campus center on Monday.
