And yet another…

I found “The Life of Dennis” by following a link to Triad Blogs that was discovered and posted by Billy.  Adjuncts to the pretty cool “Elliottfamily.com” website, Life of Dennis and Triad Blogs is offered by Greensboro resident Dennis Elliot. On reading his posts, it appears that he used to blog… then stopped for a year… then [...]

Expanded readership

I used to send a “letter to the editor” to the News & Record about as often as their one-every-thirty-days limit would allow.  After I started this weblog I found that I could satisfy my need to let people know how I felt about things here… and with unlimited frequency.  But let’s face it – the [...]

Gullibility?

I think that Ed Cone is correct in his prediction. By the way… is my website loading as slowly for everyone else as it is for me?

New use of a journalist’s blog?

Sam Hieb got called by County Commissioner Linda Shaw challenging a quote he attributed to her in this week’s GGO.  The quote had to do with Shaw’s reasoning for not supporting the release of $2M of excess school bond money for the implementation of the “High Point Choice Plan”.  “If we’re going to spend the [...]

Journalistic redundancy

Last night Jinni and I attended the Rhino Times’ monthly Shmoozefest with some old friends.  This month’s shcmoozing took place at Heaven down on Elm Street.  This third story open-air bar is the latest offering by one-man-downtown-development-engineer Joey Medaloni.  I finally got to meet Joey and found him to be a very nice, down-to-earth guy. I ran [...]
