The Rover Effect

Three of the last four issues of the Rover have featured Brian Boyd's excellent analysis of every aspect of the issue of Catholic faculty at Notre Dame. Brian delved into every topic, looked into every possible scenario, and talked to everyone who is anyone. Each part of his three-part article appeared on the Rover's front page and received favorable feedback.

Not soon after the last of the installments, the Scholastic came calling, asking for leads and sources from Boyd's article for the front-cover topic of their latest issue.

And today even the Observer is getting in on the act, with a piece previewing Wednesday's Faculty Senate meeting and including a summary of the events following Provost Burish's report on the diminishing percentage of Catholic faculty.

Let's hope that the diffusion of our ideas continues -- we're still waiting for Time and the New York Times to call.

As a matter of fact, the NYT has called --- former editor-in-chief Jon Christman and then-politics editor Nick Matich were quoted two years ago, I believe, in a NYT article.
