On the curious case of Montgomery College and Greenfest

As I noted late last night and updated this morning, the potential censorship situation at Montgomery College has been avoided because of the college's administration refusal to censor the show (this art program goes back to 1974).

A Bravo Zulu to Montgomery College for taking the difficult, but correct road. However, I remain very concerned about what this says about the organization that requested and then demanded the censorship and the County Executive's Office willingness to give in to that kind of ignorance.

I will be formally requesting that my Councilmember, Roger Berliner, investigate this issue and ensure that there are no future reprisals against Montgomery College.

Update: The Gazette's article on this issue here.
