X-tra Lite Blogging

At my best I'm not a heavy blogger but a number of things have converged in my life that are keeping me from even blogging lightly for all my fan (sic). In no particular order:


  • Deadline at work that isn't helped by the Thanksgiving break.


  • Preparing for upcoming travel to Cincinnati, Ohio for Thanksgiving. Skyline Chili, here I come! Oh, yeah, I'm going to see family there, too, but a man has to have his priorities straight.


  • Being sucked into the World of Warcraft after thinking it would be a good way to study game interfaces and how I might apply such things to my work (with special thanks (not) to my almost 16yo son for talking me into it).


  • It's time to do the ad book and posters for The Archdiocesan Boy Choir of Philadelphia's Christmas Concert and as usual time is short. I'll blog more about them and their amazing music after I get back from Cinti!

Send an email!

Here's the email I sent to Tampa Bays 10 News after reading about this on Amy Welborn's blog. You should do the same.
The story titled "Sex Allegations: National Association of Evangelicals pastor resigns" found at this URL: http://www.tampabays10.com/news/national/article.aspx?storyid=42893 is accompanied by a picture of a collar of a Roman Catholic priest. As your story has nothing to do with the Roman Catholic Church your use of this image shows either a complete ignorance of religious culture within the United States or a willful attempt to denigrate the Roman Catholic Church through misinformation. In either case your use of the picture is an insult to millions of Roman Catholics and should be removed immediately and a written apology should be added to the story. It is shoddy and biased work like this that has made the term Yellow Journalism redundant.
The email I used was 10news@tampabays10.com. Though you may also want to send a copy here Desk@tampabays10.com.
