    November 2, 2018 Issue:
    In Theo Tellides’ article “John Huggins: A Hopkins Black Panther,” the year of graduation was incorrect for John Huggins. John Huggins was Hopkins Class of ’63, not Class of ’61.

    December 13, 2018 Issue:

  • In Memory of Seniors Who Lost Their Privileges

    First they LOP’ed the truants,
    and I did not speak out because I did not cut class.

    Then they LOP’ed the traffic violators,
    and I did not speak out because I did not park in faculty spots.

    Then they LOP’ed the tardy students,
    and I did not speak out because I arrived on time.

    Then they LOP’ed me,
    and there was no one left to speak for me.
