Some inside-ish information on the Carnegie Mellon cartoon caper
A cursory search on Google News will show that the story (April 5) has developed a bit - and not in a good way.
If I can raise a head of steam, I'll get back into it by and by. Meanwhile, CMU alumnus Jason Weill - no permalinks - has a piece: he knew the cartoonist, Bob Rost, and has some words on him, and the satirical issue of the Tartan in which the cartoon appeared.
Weill also refers to the case at the University of Pittsburgh of the research project involving the amiblackornot.com site ,
where visitors could rate whether dark-skinned people looked "black" enough.
