Yes!, the new Greensboro weekly, runs a comment from this blog in its letters column, which is cool, they say where it came from, and it's about a story they wrote, so that's all good and innovative and networked and stuff, but maybe they should call that column something like "Feedback" instead of Letters to Editor if they are going to run feedback that doesn't come as a letter to the editor.
Meanwhile, Patrick Eakes is proofreading the alt-weekly and not even charging them for his work. Maybe he should. Last week the new paper misspelled the name of JP's David Stonecipher several times (and did so in an article that showed limited understanding of what's actually going on at the company).
I'm told a website is on the way next month. In the meantime a blog would spice up the placeholder site they're running...
Final complaint: while this week's movie review of The Aviator is given some fresh relevance by the Oscar nominations, Yes! seems to be writing about movies in some kind of time warp. The Aviator opened a month ago in Greensboro and was getting national reviews in early December. Give us something timely, or a fresh take on familiar material.
I was interested in the story about Greensboro-based National Council on Bible Curriculum, although even that was mostly a recap of familiar news from Michigan and offered little info on the Council and its curriculum.
Am I being too picky?
