Past Dispatches

Dear Readers, 
Because we don't have a proofreader on staff yet, errors due to the scanner's misreading of text may have slipped through. The most common error is the letters "rn" being turned into the letter "m." "Modern," for instance, comes out "modem." Accents, dashes, and other diacritics may also have been misconverted. We apologize for the temporary inconvenience of having to decipher the typos that you are certain to encounter until we rectify the situation.
