There are a lot less journalists today than when I was growing up- the son of Cleveland Plain Dealer copy editor. And while bloggers and internet sites may give you a lot more choices in where to get your info- the hard core “newsman” is a dying breed. They knew their beats- inside and out. […]

The Big Ten Network (BTN) and Time Warner Cable (TWC) have been having a full page ad war in the Dayton Daily News (DDN). The Big Ten Network is a last ditch attempt to milk cash out of College Sports- the last place where slavery is still legal in this country. The fans are getting […]

No matter what “No Child Left Untested” says- I’m sure even DPS dropouts can give a better answer (and find the US on a map) than Miss S. Carolina (and you wonder why they still have the stars and bars on their flag?) I’ve also heard Dr. Mack was building a house in South Carolina- […]

I offered to host it- and to help […]

I’ll be on WTUE this Sunday morning- as a guest “Beatlemaniac” with my friend Ann Stevens, host of Breakfast with the Beatles- from 10-11am. So tune in- 104.7 or www.wtue.com

No, not our Dunbar High School- but a Lexington KY high school- named after Dayton’s own poet- Paul Laurence Dunbar- in the Lifetime TV show “Cheerleader Nation.” Wonder if the TV show people know Dayton Dunbar just won State? Oh yeah- would someone tell them- we wear blue and white.
