Monday’s Buzz: 2.15.10

THE NEWS

  • In the wake of the passing of Andre Narcisse ’12 — who died from multiple drug toxicity, a diagnosis which could include alcohol — administrators said they will continue discussing solutions to alcohol abuse on campus rather than making policy changes in the near future. “It’s a question that transcends Andre’s passing,” said Calhoun College Master Jonathan Holloway. “The policies are there…what else can we do?”

  • Richard Purpora is the owner of New Haven’s Star Shoe Repair Co., which has occupied the same glass storefront, crammed full of eclectic footwear, since the 1970s. Amid the constant turnover of New Haven businesses, Star Shoe Repair has always done well, and ironically, the current economic crisis has actually bolstered business.
  • Buck Angel, a female-to-male transgender porn star, spoke at a Master’s Tea Saturday as part of Sex Week at Yale. Angel explained that his sexuality is very fluid, and that he considers himself not bisexual, but “sexual”: “Labels are not necessary,” he said.
