Update: Dean of Students office pledges to aid the Beacon

In an update to the news that the Mendota Beacon was stolen and covered up in several locations around campus, the assistant Dean of Students responded with this e-mail:

Thank you for reporting that newspapers are being stolen or moved at the Social Science building. I will notify the building manager to see if there is a way to prevent this from happening. The Dean of Students Office promotes access to many different kinds of newspapers and other materials with a variety of points of view. We certainly do not support anyone stealing or moving the Mendota Beacon to prevent students or staff from getting copies of the paper.
Best regards,

Suzanne Jones

Assistant Dean of Students

Only time will tell if this is just lip service or if they will make an effort of protect the freedom of the press.

Also, the blogosphere has been rallying around the Beacon as well. Mac, over at Right Side of the Road posted a great defense of the Beacon.
