Last night we were faced with the decision of how to cover something serious. We put up some information, and after receiving multiple requests to remove it, we did. At the time, we realized that it wasn't our place to comment on it.
The incident raises some important questions. Was this a private matter, or does the student body have a right to know (after all, it affected everyone in the library at the time)? What is the purpose of this blog? To cover parties and campus events, or perhaps something more serious in need of discussing?
Right now there is a lot of speculation over the incident, and we think that letting it come together through rumor is worse than telling the truth and ending the gossip. Hopefully administration will handle the situation appropriately (whether or not that means a campus-wide email).
We will be updating on this matter, so check back later this afternoon. Please email us at MadsVassar@Gmail.com with any questions or concerns.
