Women of Ancient Greece Slide Show

From the NY Times:
Holland Cotter writes:

An efficiently presented and somewhat stiffly titled “Worshiping Women: Ritual and Reality in Classical Athens,” at the Onassis Cultural Center was conceived to present a nuanced view of a still-elusive subject, and to correct, or at least revise, existing misconceptions.

HRC Rock To Win Part3: Backstage Press Conference

This was my first experience rubbing elbows with the paparazzi and it was an experience…
I had a very good shot of the action until this backstage guy jumped in front of me at the last minute. I had to practice my assertive gorilla shooting techniques to bring you this. It’s a jungle out there kids.
BTW, at the very end check out who’s hugging Melissa as she leaves….Susan Sarandon sighting!

This was the premier event for the GLBT community during the Democratic Convention in Denver and it was a fundraising event for HRC. Producer of the show Elizabeth Birch told me in an interview for Avalon Farmcast that it was a sold out show. (2000+)
