These editorials have apparently all been lost after maintenance to the DE newshound site.
I knew I should have pulled them all when I had the chance.
I'm inquiring with their IT guy to see if there is any chance of recovery.

End the charade. Who made changes to the SIUC Web site, and why?

Hypocrisy masquerading as drug policy A second chance for drug offenders - sort of.

Cheap publicity won't help minorities If Illinois lawmakers truly wanted to help, they wouldn't single out SIU.

Mobbing: facing the consequences The vindication of Joan Friedenberg. A non-apology apology is better than none.

The deadline looms. The University risks a lawsuit if it does not come into compliance with the Illinois Human Rights Act.

Why gamble with SIU's reputation? The University was in no hurry to comply with state law, and risked an expensive and damaging lawsuit. What could possibly justify such recklessness? Could it be anti-gay hostility?

A triumph of compassion. An well-behaved crowd shames the Rev. Fred Phelps.
