Tuesday’s Buzz: 2.02.10

THE NEWS

  • A transgender prefrosh who identifies as male will stay in a male suite during Bulldog Days — but there is still no word on whether administration will approve a mixed-gender housing policy before next year.

  • Stained glass windows featuring racially insensitive images can be found in prominent locations on campus, and Yale is not quite sure what to do with them.
  • The Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library has a new blog, and it’s dedicated to highlighting the library’s quirkiest new acquisitions — like boards of human hair samples from the early days of Clairol. “We try to show things that are on the fringes … The kind of stuff people might not assume is in the library,” curator Timothy Young said.

      In what way are pickled cucumbers (such as those in the salad being served for lunch in the colleges) different from pickles? I HAVE TO KNOW.
