Editor's Note: We are somewhat heartened concerning the Newman Society's somewhat weak "shot across the bow" of AMU following the publicity surrounding the Golisano scandal. Our reporter, Marielena de Stuart continues to be banned from the AMU campus, because of her attempt to find out why she suddenly had been prevented from attending the Golisano press conference after earlier attaining official clearance from AMU representatives.
Thanks to an express order to AMU authorities from Venice Bishop Frank J. Dewane, Mrs. Stuart must be allowed access at any time to the AMU church (which is on AMU property). The Wanderer intends to issue shortly a formal request to AMU's president, and to its chancellor, to lift its un-Christian and unprofessional ban against Mrs. Stuart.
Meanwhile, the Monaghan money vacuum continues to be turned on at full power. Hundreds of parents of children in Catholic high schools in the Archdiocese of St. Paul-Minneapolis received a "begging" letter from Monaghan.
Written on November 2 (All Souls Day) only days before AMU's public honoring of 4 million dollar donor Tom Golisano, Mr. Monaghan closes his appeal letter as follows:
"Yes, we have made great progress in building Ave Maria University, but we need to make more progress now. Your gift today will help in several ways--it will allow us to keep up the pace, it will show the broad base of support for Ave Maria which is so important to any national institution, and it will encourage others to support us too because they will see that they can be part of a great awakening in our culture--the new evangelization in our country that will so dramatically shape the future of the Church.
"Please, I ask you to pray, fast, and contribute today. You won't regret it. In fact, I have great hope that you and I will have an eternity to rejoice in the action we take today."
As the ancient warning declares: "Let the buyer beware!"

Law, culture, and Catholicism...up in smoke!
