Subscription Canceled

The library director at San Antonio's University of the Incarnate Word has canceled the library's subscription to The New York Times.

Mendell Morgan Junior says the move is a protest of Times articles revealing a covert government program to track terrorist financing.

In an e-mail to his library staff, he wrote that neither average citizens nor enemy terrorists needed to know about the classified program in a time of war.

The private Roman Catholic university says it hasn't taken an official position on Morgan's decision but said Morgan was acting within his authority. However, the decision outraged library staffers who called the move censorship.
