ETHICS/ASSIGNMENT: For Tuesday, Oct. 18, a 15-minute discussion

To clarify, the assignment about the ABC News nuclear report is for
Tues., Oct. 18 -- we'll cover it for about 15 minutes before moving on.

reporters should identify themselves:

Also, for more on what the students did, and how one school has reacted,
optionally read an account in the MIT student newspaper at:

Other reaction from campuses:
