Fresh on the heels of reports that a campus admissions official trashed issues of a campus newspaper with an unflattering article about Ohio Wesleyan University, police officers at Virginia Commonwealth University are investigating the disappearance of 2,500 of the 3,000 copies of last week's issue of the Commonwealth Times, the weekly student paper there, the Student Press Law Center reported. According to the center's account, the newspaper contained an article about a campus theatrical production of "Beirut" and included a photograph of a male character gripping the face of a female character in a violent fashion, over the caption "Power of Love." Some letters to the editor of the paper argued that the publication of such a picture "normalizes domestic violence," and the newspaper's opinion editor explained her decision to run the photo in this week's issue.
