The editors of two college newspapers have stepped down after they released April Fool's Day editions that were not well-received by their respective campuses. Abby Spudich resigned as editor of the University of Missouri's Maneater
(renamed the Carpeteater
and filled with "highly offensive, sexist and crude" content for April Fool's) after writing an apology letter,
and Chelsea Diana of the Boston University Daily Free Press
was forced to resign after overseeing an ill-conceived April Fool's edition called the Disney Free Press
, which included satirical articles about rape
, prostitution and drug use
. She also wrote an apology
, as did the paper's board of directors

Recollecting a culture : photography and the evolution of a socialist aesthetic in East Germany. "in contrast to Western histories built upon a foundation of works by modernist and early-modernist masters, the history of East German photography was built from a body of images by amateurs and artists, largely unknown outside Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union, whose photographs depicted the world from the class perspective of the worker."
From a 1999 exhibition held at Boston University. 100 images, 10 essays. Sadly, a bad interface and small reproductions. Out of control : photography from East Germany
. A 1993 project documenting "the uses of photography in Eastern Germany after the collapse of the German Democratic Republic (GDR)"
also, with small pictures.
