Dear Friend,

Welcome to the latest Quakers in the News.  A snapshot of the face of English 
speaking Quakerism in last week's news is as follows:

An additional 100 articles mostly appearing in mid and small market journals 
in the US published stories mentioning Earlham College (not necessarily 
mentioning the word 'Quaker') and the subsequent two food throwing incidents.  one 
at Butler University, in Indiana and another one involving Pat Buchannan in 
Michigan.  The op-ed commentary stories were mostly similar to - Liberals prevent 
free speech
