UPDATED 8:24 a.m., 8/21/14: Thank you George Hearst for doing the right thing. Here’s what we received from the V.P. of Circulation, Todd Peterson, this a.m.: ““We will honor all expiration dates through the end of their term and notify them at expiration that their newspaper is going to stop. We will call back the few people we talked to on Friday and let re-iterate that their newspaper ends at expiration, and that their delivery will continue until then and they will be reminded at that time that delivery will cease.” [Read more…]
I’m doing it. Some of you will say “bout time”. Some of you will say “uh-oh”. Some will say “rock on” and others will say “who cares”. I’m busting out the long overdue, what’s -going-on-in-this head ‘o mine blog.
It’s funny, I never really thought of myself as a curious person but truth is, I am. Deep, deep down, I always want to know why things are, I want to learn, I want to talk, I want to understand and always know more. I should have been a lawyer, or a scientist, but couldn’t pay attention long enough so….here I am.
So here, I will share thoughts, ask questions and seek knowledge. We can debate, we can chat, we can use foul-language if it applies to the subject BUT….
Pretty much “coffee talk”. Chat. Business, kids, neighborhood news, bad behavior, sometimes random totally un-news related things.
My numero-uno rule. Top of the ladder. The buck stops here. You may not call each OTHER or ME names or otherwise attack a person for their opinion.
I don’t do that whole twisted “people can say anything” rule. I just hate that between neighbors.
