An Arizona controversy:
"In a city aspiring to be defined by its good taste, a new Mexican restaurant, the Pink Taco, is opening with a name that some find offensive. Scottsdale Mayor Mary Manross was so put off by the name, a slang term for vagina, that she asked its owner to change it".
The name was intended to be humorous and thus attract young people. Apparently the owners are keeping the name so far.
"A Colorado school district has voted to restore the name of its two-week December holiday to "Christmas break." The Falcon School District 49 school board voted 3-2 earlier this month to make the switch from "winter break"... "We certainly had testimony on both sides, but the preponderance of testimony and e-mails were 10-to-1 in favor of restoring it to Christmas," board member Dave Stark said."
Marvellous what a bit of democracy does.
Penn State Hoist by their own Petard
The recent censorship of a Jewish art exhibition by the School of Visual Arts at Penn State U was hastily ended when the university president intervened. But they are still in hot water over their dissing of the Hillel organization:
"Hillel sent a letter to university administration this week asking for a formal and public apology, a process to protect underrepresented opinions from silencing, sensitivity training for the School of Visual Arts and an investigation into the actions of the School of Visual Arts the Collegian said."
Neat to see the same demands being made of Penn State that they have so often demanded of others.
