Murray Weigal Hall, located next to Finlay Gate, where one of the accused priests lived.

Our lead news story this issue can also be found on it’s own page, because we think it was a very important article (See: “The Silent Treatment”). It looks into the allegations of clergy abuse on Fordham’s campus in the 1960s, and Fordham’s silence on the subject that continues today. the paper interviewed both of the victims, one of whom is speaking out for the first time.

News also takes a look at the impact of the holiday season on the economy, the possibility of Obama closing the Guantanamo Bay detention facility, and the scientific confirmation of the existence of exoplanets. We’ve also got an update on the progress Fordham’s “Strategic Plan” has made, a look at the Cardinal Newman Society–a group that has been pointing its finger at Fordham lately, and few words on Proposition (H)8. Enjoy.
