I didn't check my comment email box until now, and I find Peter Swanson
has sent me a link to a great post about the Homecoming
Queen royalty controversy
, which has found its way to the New York Times
. No wonder everyone here's so happy to see me blog on Ukraine rather than my usual mucking about in academia. I wish I had thought of Peter's suggestion to blot out the face of the
with a blue dot. According to one source on campus, the student has indeed been taped for a news magazine program with his face in silohuette. More details as I get them.
Meanwhile, however, could someone from the administration please explain this?
St. Cloud's president, Roy H. Saigo, who supported Mr. Khang's candidacy, and other administrators distributed a statement on a university e-mail list shortly after Mr. Khang was elected.
We reported that letter here
and a related letter here
. Did he support the candidacy before the election of the homecoming queen or after? If before, how was this support manifested?
