Arts & Culture

Apr 15, 2014 — For the past decade Pakistan has faced war, political instability and the rise of religious extremism. But those crises have fueled a new generation of Pakistani writers and artists.
Apr 15, 2014 — Even 2,000 years ago, people seemed to know that the egg could be a source of life. And an ancient art form has been passed down, transforming a symbolic source of food into a dazzling decoration.
Apr 15, 2014 — The cable network premieres a new drama series tonight. It's called Fargo, and has the same title as the 1996 Coen Brothers movie. Critic David Bianculli says it's very definitely a wonderful show in that same wacky spirit - but it's just as important to note what this new Fargo is not. It's not a remake — and it's not a sequel.
Apr 15, 2014 — In a new book, New York Times correspondent Carlotta Gall offers new information about how Pakistan has helped the Taliban in Afghanistan and may have helped hide Osama bin Laden.

Love Makes a Family

A critically acclaimed photo exhibit of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people and their children goes on display this afternoon at the Unitarian-Universalist Church in Canton. Called "Love Makes a Family", the exhibit of photos allows family members to speak candidly about their lives, relationships and the way they deal with the pressures of homophobia. Photos and text from more than 20 families are included in the exhibit, which was first shown last weekend in the Hosmer Gallery on the SUNY Potsdam campus. It's sponsored by a number of local groups that support so-called nontraditional families - PFLAG - Parents, Friends and Family of Lesbians and Gays, Northern New York Families, PRISM, and the Unitarian-Universalist Church in Canton. Todd Moe caught up with the Reverend Anne Marsh, co-minister at the UU Church in Canton, yesterday afternoon, just as volunteers finished putting up the "Love Makes a Family" display.  Go to full article
