Big News Week

This is usually a tough week for the Register — the biggest week for the secular news every four years is the slowest news week for us. That’s because we go to press on Monday night, and polls open on Tuesday morning for Election Day.

But this year is different for two reasons. First, because this week we are running a symposium on one of the biggest news events this year: the economic crash. In our symposium, you’ll find voices from all walks of life and political perspectives discussing what moral failings led to the crisis.

Second, the Cardinal Newman Society’s Center for Higher Education announces its poll results about Catholic colleges in this issue. Read the details in the story on page one.

The implications of these stories will be with us for a long time. So will the major story we can’t cover this week. Find more on that one here next week.
