Summer Exhibits At Vassar

If you are in the area this summer, there are two exhibits at Vassar that are definitely worth checking out.

First, the new exhibit at the Loeb that we told you about last month will open this Friday. The exhibit, Facebook: Images of People in Photographs from the Collection will display photo portraits from throughout the last century. The exhibit is open until August 10.

Second, a series of photographs of actress Lynn Redgrave and her battle with breast cancer will be on display in the Vogelstein Center for Drama and Film. The photographs are by her daughter, Annabel Clark. The exhibit will be on display from June 27 to July 31.

Why is it that everyone got onto Mads a few weeks ago for posting non-Vassar news, but now that he's stopped he's getting slammed for not doing it?

Mads, post what you like. Seriously.

People who have commented on the recent Spears post take issue with Mads' hypocrisy: Mads thinks that a an actress who got pregnant as a teen and is known mostly as B. Spears' sister is more blog worthy as a minuscule gossip story than the death of a respectable journalist, which merits a least a post in acknowledgment or tribute. Neither of these are Vassar related stories.
However, as students living in the United States, attending an Ivy-standard liberal arts college, one would think its students would be affected by Russert's life and death (not only as a journalist, but as a human being) to a much greater extent than finding out that a tween who can hardly be considered a celebrity, gave birth.
Mads can post what he/she desires or considers "post worthy", but the readers have the right to say if they think a post about Spears is ridiculous, especially if a post acknowledging people like Russert or Carlin lacks from this blog.
