Well, I find it really obnoxious that they had room to print a story in the Style section about a millionaire who was married to two women at the same time but couldn't find room to write even a small appreciation of Gregory Hines.
The man contributed alot to not only film and tv but to dance too. I know countless boys who took up tap after seeing Gregory Hines in "White Nights" as well as the film "Tap." I'm willing to bet that if Alan Kreigsman wasn't retired from the Post there would have been an appreciation. Sorry if I sound a bit hot under the collar, but for some reason it really got to me. It just seems like such a snub.

I quite understand, and may I suggest you write a tartly worded letter to the editor? It might be worth reminding them that the Style section readers who follow cultural matters as well as or instead of Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous need some attention, too. :)

Catlady, I'm personally very glad that you brought this subject up. And, Dirac, your idea is a very good one. As a result I will also write a terse :angry: e-mail t the editor. Thanks!
