If Editor Ella Letterie were still here, she'd tell us to use this front-page space to urge support for One Laptop Per Child. But Ella died in December, not suddenly, but almost at her computer, working on the next issue of the Mirror. She was a peach, a hard worker and our loyal friend.

The "XO" is that snazzy little green and cream machine, getting a once over by the editors of the The Melrose Mirror. This is the $200 computer designed (for the most part) by MIT faculty and grad students for "OLPC" -- One Laptop Per Child. Production is well underway and deliveries have begun to children around the globe -- made possible by donations from a generous public. From the left are Mirror Editors Ed Boyd, Louise Fennell, Russ Priestley, Kay McCarte and John Averell. Missing is Editor Don Norris -- who was behind the camera.
Publisher for this issue is Kay McCarte
