 Editor's Note:

1)The article on plagiarism on p. 15 is not listed in the table of contents.


2)Due to a formatting error that occurred in transferring his article from a Word document to a PDF file for the newsletter, Craig Farmer's review is missing several grammatical indicators in his article,"A Cathedral, Mannequins, and Artists Dying During the AIDS Crisis". The following are the corrections that should be noted:

          1st paragraph:

  • 'a piece of the world' should have been italicized indicating a title
  • Christina's World should have been italicized as the name of Andrew Wyeth's painting
