- High tuition reflects University's shift in emphasis (Charles Rice Right or Wrong?)
Every Christmas I get a personal, first-name invitation to join the Sorin Society. If I pay $1,000, benefits include "regional meetings" and the President's Newsletter. For $3,000 I could join the Founder's Circle and receive a video, an "ombudsman service" for tickets to non-athletic events and other comparable perks.

A college education, they warn us, is now a necessary ticket to a middle-class and decent paying job. And a strong democracy, they sometimes point out, depends on well-educated and informed citizens.

- Ghnaim: new terms could end war u Author claims Palestinians want better peace plan, not fighting (By ANNE-MARIE MATTINGLY)
