Re: “Get Your Election Predictions!

Can someone explain to me why we're not putting a fork in Sundberg?

Re: “Let the Bitch-Fest Begin!

The Town Dandy is too insular. Move beyond the railroad, harbor and other big industry. Give us personalities and gossip. Make it fun. Make us laugh. Quit being so serious and dour. Think Herb Caen.

About the blogthing: It pretty much sucks. The barbarians have stormed the gates. There's no editorial vision, no scrutiny. A robot automatically posting garbage from blogs? Are you trying to compete with craigslist's Rants and Raves? Because that's pretty much what it's become.

It's okay to provide a directory of local blogs (everyone else does), but to allow those same blogs to post content to the blogthing is getting into that whole inmates/asylum issue.

So, kick-out the capdiamonts and plazoids and impose a strict editorial regime. For chrissakes quit posting Times-Standard content (have you no pride?) And re-name it. "Blogthing" has always bothered me.

That, and Web-publish to the main site the same day you street the fishwrap (i.e., Wednesday).
