The new McFatridge in my life

If you want to understand that post headline, you need to ask me to read "Sheep's End". Or you need to know where I took the name from. That story I'm saving for a rainy day.

Friendly students have inquired and learned who will be teaching JOUR 428 Online Publication next year.

She's certainly qualified as a journalist. Apparently, she wants to focus the course on blogging and citizen journalism next year. I do appreciate the irony of teaching citizen journalism in journalism school.

I covered bloggging for less than two hours in my course this past semester. Several of my students already blogged before they set foot in my class.

How much can you say about blogging and how truly non-lucrative it can be? I hope the students get something out of it, something that will help them in the future.

On the bright side, I found a kiwi shirt to go with my tie. It's not Geoffrey Beene, but it's the right colour and almost the right size.

Bonus comment on my now third-place Irrational League team:

.300 batting average (1st)
53 HR (2nd)
190 RBI (3rd)
24 SB (8th)
4.25 ERA (6th)
1.32 WHIP (5th)
16 wins (5th)
14 saves (tied 4th)

Yeah, my pitching has taken a pounding, but I still believe it's the best in the league in terms of talent. We can drop one player a month and add another. On May 1, I dropped future all-star but current AAA player Corey Hart and picked up Hector Luna as injury insurance.

Are you freakin kidding?!??!?!

That makes no sense at all...
I mean, none. Nada.

/me checks if he registered for 428 and promptly un-registers

Too bad there's no way we can complain...
