SMS, Twitter and WKU

While at work yesterday I saw a tweet from my friend Cindi in reference to a text alert regarding possible gunmen and shots fired at Western Kentucky University.  WKU had sent to text alerts about reports of guns and shots fired and locked down the campus.   I have family in the area and my niece…

Don’t Waste Your Vote

Four years ago I had a dilemma.  I was not going to vote for George W Bush and did not like the other major party candidate, John Kerry, any better.  I didn’t like the idea of voting for the lesser of two evils, so I researched the other party candidates and felt comfortable with the…

Bureau of Jerks

My daughter’s third grade class arranged a field trip to the Bureau of Engraving and Printing in DC for today.  We were scheduled to go in as two groups starting at 10:15.  Because DC traffic sucks(due in part to horribly timed traffic lights) we arrived a few minutes late for the first tour.  The lovely…

National Enquirer and Libraries

Someone shared this link on FriendFeed today: http://www.outsidethebeltway.com/archives/national_enquirer_more_believable_than_new_york_times/ If the National Enquirer continues to scoop the mainstream media on stories like the John Edwards affair does it deserve a move from the supermarket aisles to the regular newspaper location. Do libraries need to consider stocking the paper along with the local paper and The New…
