    Putting advertisements in between the pictures of Firefighter Rice’s funeral pictures, is un-acceptable and tasteless. Suerly this brave man’s last moments could be shown, without ads?
    My condolences to his family and friends. You will never be forgotten.

  2. Steve says:

    My family went to view Mahjong: Contemporary Chinese Art from the Sigg Collection at the Peabody Essex Museum and we were very seermsipd. The work exhibited is broad and wide-ranging in terms of style and process. It was a real Makes you think kind of show that gives the viewer some good insight into modern Chinese culture and thinking.
