News? or a Story?

Speaking of the News Journal... I have discontinued interviews with this publication because of several reasons:

I have been interviewed for a fair number of articles in that publication, and they almost always get the facts wrong;

The reporters that I have dealt with are usually more interested in crafting their own story, than they are in reporting accurate news.

So... News Journal... don't call me, and I won't call you.

Public Scrutiny

Delaware has expanded its use of the public registry of sex offenders, as reported by the News Journal. This is an action that is both criticized and praised.

Do you think that publicizing criminal behaviour may serve as a deterrent? The founders did. Public stocks, and hangings were the norm.

The publication of this material also helps us to guide our lives more safely. Do you believe that?

What are your thoughts?

Thought for the day...

This afternoon I was chilling at the bar at Crabby Dick's(my favorite crab cake source) in Delaware City, pondering life, looking for a succinct way to express myself. For a couple of weeks, my daily slogan has been.... live the journey. Today I realized that it isn't enough to live the journey, we need to Love the Journey!
