Why do scripted Television writers have this innate problem of not being able to end a show well?  Even though some considered The Sopranos ending a masterpiece I was seething. Don't even get me started on my beloved show Lost. But, I have high hopes for the/… Read full post »

When Bloggers Go Dark

Linda Lenzen Treiber asked this morning on Facebook why Anna North, author of Salon's “When Blogs Go Dark” spoke with "everyone" except Open Salon writers for her research. Frankly Linda, it does not surprise me at all. How many true bloggers are left on Open Salon? Any outsideRead full post »
