A good start for change would be follow up on all items. Pardon me if I overlooked something, for I am human and I tend to err sometimes, but what happened to announcing the winner of the Tucson Celebrity Showdown? Last thing I noticed was Janos and Gabby were the finalists and the suspense is killing me. Who won as the top celeb? Was this already announced and I missed it? Oh the agony!
I'm gonna guess that if an entire week goes by, and no one suggests you should lose your job, then you should probably lose your job.
A bit of a generalization, regarding both the "march crowd" and the people who responded to the status in question.
Regarding the latter, while I support the labeling of GMO crops and would like Monsanto to fall into a deep hole and never see the light of day again, I did not go to the march and I did not post enthusiastically (nor several times daily) about it like some of my friends...I RSVPd for the event, realized the futility of it, and went to Phoenix ComicCon instead.
However, I did comment on your status, particularly remarking on your unprofessional "xo" bit. One need not be in a "crowd" simply because they disagree with the tone of your post.
The GMO crowd loves to find any cause that they can protest. Half of them do not know what they are there for. Almost like the anti-war crowd in the 60's and 70's. It is just an excuse to act out. While I agree with some of the arguments against Monsanto and their ilk, I like to eat. The recent Supreme Court decision will make any other protests mute. Their existence is all but guaranteed as a result and even their testing methodology will continue, protests will not stop them, only court action.
You're the editor. Your job is to "edit" and "editorialize" and this is, thankfully, an Alt Newspaper. I see nothing wrong with your post. Right on as my Canadian friends say.
Refreshing to see something besides the mainstream media drivel!
It's not necessarily a bad thing to make Romenesko's column.
When are we going to be free of the ad from that woman in Phx about Flake's not keeping his promise? It seems as if it is aired every time there is a commercial break. I personally am tired of having to watch and listen to it!
Riorican: My mistake and now corrected.
@W Corvi: I'm not sure where you came up with "THOUSANDS" of awards the Arizona Press Club dishes out.
I just worked my way down through its 2013 awards booklet (link below) and it's true there are many awards, but hardly thousands. (I also found no award for that Flagstaff paper you mentioned.
The booklet is good reading.
I found myself copying out leads to award-winning pieces to read later on.
Here's the link: http://azpressclub.files.wordpress.com/201…
Did you mean to type Nogales International rather than Nogales Independent?
Been seeing big improvements there over the last few years. Worth a look now and then, online at nogalesinternational.com
The Arizona Press Club gives out THOUSANDS of awards each year - to the dozen papers in AZ. So it's no surprise that each comes home with hundreds of awards. For example, the Flag Rag pulled down the coveted 'best newspaper in southwest Flagstaff'. Their subscription rate is pathetic, and when they started charging to read it on the web, NO ONE subscribed! They even quit publishing on Mondays, since there was nothing in that edition anyway. But, it still brings home hundreds of awards from the Arizona Press Club.
".....I generally enjoy Beyoncé's music. I agree with Kanye that "Single Ladies" was a superior video to whatever it was that Taylor Swift did or ever has done....."
You're sick Gibson. Suppose Michael Vick's your favorite sports personality also?
Nice use of semicolon blown by misplaced apostrophe--I gather you're not in editorial, @Monkey? Oh, wait ....
@Monkey: Love that your IP address originates from TNI, however. At least when I criticize your organization, I sign my name.
@Monkey: Wasn't planning on it. But I will take your anonymous, poorly formatted suggestion under advisement.
The CEO of Wick resigned today; when are you tendering your's?
Beyonce fans get what they deserve: Cookie cutter music and controlled publicity. 'Nuff said.
Seeing the title of this post, I imagined it was about Beyonce's getting another $50 million from Pepsi for pushing diabetes water on fat kids (which got her uninvited by the White House.) Maybe her fat thighs relate to her drinking too much soda.
She doesn't want pictures of her FAT thighs going public. She is getting fat and would rather control the public photos than to lose the weight.
