Spelman College has suspended its prestigious program worth $20 million in the wake of the recent allegations made against Bill Cosby, while his wife has spoken out for the first time to defend her husband.
"The William and Camille Olivia Hanks Cosby Endowed Professorship was established to bring positive attention and accomplished visiting scholars to Spelman College in order to enhance our intellectual, cultural and creative life," Spelman College said in an official statement. "However, the current context prevents us from continuing to meet these objectives fully. Consequently, we will suspend the program until such time that the original goals can again be met."
Cosby and his wife gifted the school $20 million in the late 1980s, establishing the prestigious professorship. The family also gave an academic center, named for Camille. This is not the first school that Cosby has been affiliated with; earlier this month, he stepped down from the board of trustees at Temple University. He was also stripped of the honorary title of chief petty officer given to him in 2011. more >>

A hilarious, and surprisingly inoffensive Saturday Night Live skit poking fun at characters one might meet at Christmas mass has "favorites" ranging from the friendly greeter with the oh-so-sweaty hands to the organist who can't quite find the right note.
The satirical advertisement for St. Joseph's church starts with this introduction: "It's Christmas and you know what that means: it's time for your annual trip to church with your parents. And you're in luck because this year St. Joseph's Church is going full throttle with our one-night only Christmas mass spectacular. We got appearances by all your church favorites."
The music changes from choral holiday music to a rock ballad as the narrator hypes up a somewhat ordinary service as the "Christmas Mass Spectacular." more >>
