Speak up… Lex has a deadline looming

PressThink is holding on to the Greensboro blogging story like a dog who found his bone after a lot of sniffing and digging.  He is convinced that a fundamental change in journalism is afoot here in the Gate City.  In a follow-up to Saturday’s piece that got everyone up to speed, Jay Rosen delves deeper [...]

I hate to miss all of the fun, but I’ve just got to get back down to Charlotte.  The blogging un-business discussion sure is getting interesting over at Cone and the Shu’s comments sections and I am confident that everyone will have it worked out by later today and my check will be in the [...]

Shoes unfilled

The Carolina Peacemaker‘s editor, John Marshall Kilimanjaro, eulogizes the late Rev. Michael King marking the one year anniversary of his death… “…I don’t have the time to engage in a lot of high-flown rhetoric, but suffice it say that when Greensboro lost this young, dynamic and spiritual leader a year ago — regardless of the accusations [...]

Jinni’s Journal – Part II

The second installment of Jinni’s Journal is in today’s N&R.  Everything I have written so far about my wife’s breast cancer can be found over at What’s Up With Jinni.  (Thanks Shu) The main reason Jinni agreed to share her experiences with fighting breast cancer was not the money involved, because there isn’t any.  She wants [...]

New kid shows promise

The Shu points us to Yes! Weekly, Greensboro’s soon-to-be-published upstart alternative weekly paper. Their pre-release website indicates to me that they get it from the git go.  Their so-far spartan home page has a list of links to not only Greensboro is Talking’s weblog, but also all other local media’s websites including the Rhino Times and [...]

Pow… right in the kisser

I liked Cone’s column this morning, he and I have the same disdain for the souless term “Happy Holidays”.  I’ve had similar thoughts about the subject… “For the past many years, since the onslaught of political correctness, Thanksgiving Day has been the start of my personal crusade against the phrase ‘Happy Holidays’ …Any time someone offers [...]

Pow… right in the kisser

TheMiddle, a weblogger over near some non-city called Research Triangle Park, read Jay Rosen’s piece yesterday about Greensboro’s blogging scene and was shocked and baffled by what he read.  Opines Andy… “…If that town can get together and make peoples lives better through improved communication, imagine what would happen if a real city got motivated?

A revolution? Nah…

Jay Rosen, on the revolution he sees taking place right here in Greensboro, right at this minute, dressed as we are, “I’ve been waiting for this. So have many others…” It sounds as though Rosen has been reading Greensboro bloggers for a while because his post faithfully captured what we are doing and getting ready [...]

Has he got us by the short and curlies?

We are allowed to speculate freely on this one so I think we should. Since us lowly taxpayers are not privvy to the real reason our County Board of Health found it necessary to continue paying our recently resigned Health Director’s hefty salary and benefits, even after he “voluntarily and freely” resigned, what else can we [...]
